9.6 Excellent
Pros: Barefoot luxury at the beach with a casual and friendly atmosphere. The beach in front of Udekki is fantastic - sandy, clean and not many people except the fishermen who take off from up the beach. It has a large, (and refreshing) swimming pool on the edge of the sand. It's lovely to walk straight out of your room and onto the sandy beach. The food was excellent and Dean, the manager, and his team went out of their way to make sure we had the best in meals and service. We left Udekki feeling like we had made new friends! I will definitely go back again soon!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We thought we were lost heading down a non-existent road until we saw the sign, but once inside the secured venue: WOW! It’s a hidden, secret piece of paradise. It’s secluded so I would suggest having all meals at the venue, by the way the food is faultless as is the service. The management are really nice and the staff goes above and beyond to look after you. I’ve already mentioned the food but it really is impeccable. The rooms in the villa’s are perfectly simple, spacious and clean. The pool is fantastic and clean, and there’s plenty of areas to just lounge with a secluded beach, the only other people we saw on the beach were the local fishermen throwing their nets from the shore. This is a beautiful place to just lose yourself and recharge the batteries.
Cons: We were pestered by flies at each meal, which became annoying.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The villa had amazing views and places to relax away from the main area. The best meal of our stay the night we arrived and fantastic curried eggs for breakfast. A few paces up the beach were other sister resorts that you could enjoy. Rosie the cat was very special. Would def go back again.
Cons: One of the bathrooms was more rural with a big spider - which they took care of.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms and facilities had a nice design and the whole place had a unique touch. Thanks to the owner and the staff we had a great relaxing vacation. The staff was very helpful in finding solutions for my daughter’s food allergies. The owner Dean and his wonderful cat Rosie made our stay very special!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Calm quiet and right on what feels like your very own private beach. Isaru was wonderful and the service was 5 star. We got our bottles of water replaced for a cooler fresh bottle before we asked for it as an example and he was always smiling. The food was delicious we recommend the curry one of the best we had in Sri Lanka. The yoga with Monika is also fabulous, especially right on the deck listening to the ocean. Would totally recommend udekki for a place to relax for a few days in what feels like hour very own little paradise.

7.1 Good
Pros: The service provided by Mohamed was exceptional. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. He had a genuine interest in making sure we were happy and comfortable. The food was lovely. The pool was nice, always spotlessly clean. The layout of the villas around the restaurant area and pool really suited us with small children. It was a short walk to the beach and we could use the restaurant on the beach at Omeesha resort.
Cons: There is very little we didn’t like and it is very petty but we thought there needed to be some wardrobe space or at least some hooks for hanging clothes. It also says on the facilities page that windsurfing is offered, it is not.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was fantastic. Outside shower was perhaps the best shower I've ever had anywhere in the world. The bed was incredibly comfortable, wonderful mosquito netting kept any bugs/mosquitoes from getting near. I loved the garden setting of the entire resort. Beautiful surroundings, nice bar right on the beach (with beer). I'd stay at this resort again in a heartbeat!
Cons: I had a difficult time getting to the resort on my bicycle (I'm bike touring). Google maps did not show the direct paved road and I had taken a dirt road that turned into a 1 lane cowpath before I came to the paved road. Took me over an hour and half to get to the resort from the turnoff of the highway. Had I known (not the resort's fault) that the paved road I took leaving the resort in the morning, was there, it sure would of eased my anxiety!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful architecture villa, a very good place for relaxing with a very attentive and helpful staff. And the Sri Lanka food is 5 stars!!! Super duper delicious.
Cons: They didn't have a massage service. This place is a very good place for relaxing. They should have a Spa to compliment the beautiful view surrounding this villa. Then it would be perfect!!
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The fact that we only booked for one night
Cons: Generally there’s no price to value here (considering almost 200€ per night incl taxes) - Hotel is rundown partly and could do with some renovation - Rooms were not clean: dirty toilet seat, ants in the bed - Overall poor room equipment for a 4 star hotel having such a high price: no safe, no coffee or tea station, light bulb in bathroom did not work - Found a black hair in our breakfast - Staff seems to be friendly (helped us with the luggage), but they rarely speak English. So communication is barely possible - Basic „manners“ could be better too: i.e. they started to take the breakfast off the table 10 minutes after we sat down (we were still eating) - We did not feel welcome: when we arrived they didn‘t tell us anything about the hotel or things to do in the area - The owners arrived the next morning. We were the only guests but still the only thing they said was „hello“. They rather slept in the living room instead of taking care of their guests or checking how they feel - Beach and Lagune are extremely dirty and polluted.. we have never seen something like this before
