7.5 Good
Pros: As a very special bawa property,, in a perfect location .I was annoyed by very badly behaved , undisciplined children ruining our stay,, smashing plates and screaming in dining area,, taking over the pool area,, not hotels fault,, the staff were overly accommodating ,, we had to request another place to dine,, it’s a temple to design,, inappropriate for children

8.8 Excellent
Pros: great breakfasts,, its a bawa building, so that means it feels good to be there, going to the beach at sunset is a great thing to do. dont buy cigarettes...
Cons: too expensive
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We couldn't ask for more. The place is fantastic with great facilities, beach 1 minute walking, pool, great food and more. The installations are clean and pristine, decorated with very good taste. The staff was awesome, very friendly, professional and efficient and that is a priceless asset. The way that ALL the staff performed their duties exceed anything I we were expecting. For example, we planned to go to the World Heritage Sigiriya and was necessary to leave the facilities at 04:00am in order to get there around 09:00 but that meant to miss the breakfast on that day. As soon as our plans were known, Mishara, a staff member, organized the preparation of two breakfast packs to be ready for us in the morning to take on the journey. Pro-activity and a job well done at its best. A word of appreciation for a great job as well for Chaminda at the reception and to Numesh and Sanjeewa and for all the great people with no exception working there. A big thanks very much.
Cons: To leave.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: A delightful boutique property, beautifully appointed. It was wonderful to be so close to such a magnificent stretch of beach and still have the option of 2 lovely swimming pools. The grounds are plush, large and relaxing. (The train line that runs behind the property was really quite a thrill - waving to the passengers as they trundled past.) The staff were most accommodating and the dining options were superb. Very happy to recommend this property.
Cons: It was a terrible shame that so many people had decided to cancel their bookings because of the recent unrest. We spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka and at no time did we feel threatened or unsafe. Please consider travelling to Sri Lanka.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Room was very comfortable; our one year old who loved the gardens and the wide clean beach. Food was delicious and they made baby friendly food as well. Sanjeewa the bartender and Daham at reception were very welcoming and helpful.

9.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolute must, upon entering, you get an explanation of the influence of Geoffrey Bawa, the architect who also determines was at our previous hotel Marissa Hills. Spacious layout and a lot of art makes you feel in a museum rather than a hotel. Room, restaurant and swimming pools. The whole outdoor happen to the last detail with the beautiful white beach to cap it. A must if you are in this area.
Cons: Nothing not to like

Cons: Food is okay, but they need to increase the size of the portions.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely place, clean. Good small garden with pool. Sea was rough during our visit, so had to be really careful and couldn't swim properly. The beach in front of the property as well as the garden was really well cleaned by the staff and it was good to enjoy walk & sun. Relaxing place. We had dinners in the hotel and seafood platter was really tasty. (Only other hotel restaurants nearby.) Hotel can help to book a minivan back to the airport. The Driver and car, which we got, were the best (new clean car, seat belts for everyone, Driver had a safe way of driving) that we had during our visit in Sri Lanka.
Cons: Due to the shortage of fresh water the pool water had to be taken from the well and chemicals were added to it to keep it clean. Pool was greenish and couldn't use all times due to cleaning process.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I very highly recommend this place. Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. The place is even better than seen in the pictures. The staff are very kind, prompt and always smiling. The rooms are spick and span, and are cleaned daily when requested. The breakfast included with the price is delicious. The chef is worth high praise. Close to Induruwa Railway Station and 5 minutes away from Bentota Railway Station. Pool and entire property is cleaned daily, and the beach is literally a hop away. Will definitely visit again. Cannot praise this place enough!
Cons: That I couldn't spend more time at this beautiful place.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is good and staff is courtious, rooms were very comfortable and we liked our overall stay.
Cons: No intercom in the room had to go to reception for every small thing. Some more things for entertainment can be added. However we liked it over all
9.3 Excellent
Cons: There was a dog, It didn't bother us in any way, however we are little allergic to dogs
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Firstly, the place is still in excellent condition, being newly built in 2010 is been very well looked after. Its clean, rooms are well looked after. Second, the food in the restaurant is superb. The ice is safe in drinks!! All taxes and services charges are included in the menu pricing so you don't get stung on the bill. Value isn't bad either but fish items on the menu get expensive. You can eat a good meal for about £4, 1000Rs. Third, the atmosphere of the place, its calm and peaceful - apart from when exceptionally noisy children are staying. Sea temperature is 30degC people!!
Cons: Very little not to like. Perhaps the only three things one could say are, the way breakfast works in the morning - you order for a menu so everything takes a long time, but then you get to enjoy the meal and take your time. It can take an hour for breakfast when it could take 10mins if it were buffet style. 2nd point - the steepness of the beach - you don't get gentle waves. You can bodyboard all day long. 3rd point - the location is pretty isolated from any other towns, but that makes its very quiet.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a great and unforgettable stay. Many thanks to all personal, you made our stay unique and very comfortable. The hotel is very beautiful and cozy, the food in the restaurant is very tasty, prices are good. Rooms are clean and big. It is a really nice and peaceful place, close to several Ayurvedic resorts. And we will never forget lots of surprises that happened here. We felt like home. Can’t wait to come back. We wish you good luck and prosperity!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Pure luxury for a 3 night stay with my husband and 7 year old daughter. The property is stunning and on a quiet, stunning beach. Karolyn was the the perfect host and looked after us so well. The food was delicious and staff were fantastic. We walked across the road to find monkeys, which was the highlight for my daughter! I would recommend this hotel highly and hope to be back next year!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is magical, peaceful and not so many people around. You get your own server for the day and his or her job is to keep you happy and feed you. The room is directed towards the sunset, and the sunsets there are orgasmic. The beach is clean and i felt i had the beach to my self. The room is clean and is well thought out the decor is vintage and comfy. Staff and manager, i am speechless about the service. Romantic place and also good for friends and family. Food is extremely delicious 5 star meals.
Cons: Breakfast choices are kind of limited.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Stunning location on a pristine beach, beautiful setting for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had a great spot for dinner both nights looking out onto the sea, a lovely spot for a quiet romantic get away!! The room was spacious and beautiful with a huge bathroom. The food was also great. I’d love to come back to Sri Villas.
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely stay. Gorgeous room with amazing patio and ocean view. Staff was great and attentive. Nice touches like a sunset and midday snack. Delicious food for lunch and dinner at reasonable prices. The fish tacos and calamari were exceptional. They were generous enough to let us stay in the room until our late flight which was very much appreciated.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carolyn was super friendly and welcoming. She made sure our stay was perfect and was very helpful. The property is stunning, right on the beach and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Its close enough to some restaurants and fishing (if your interested). It feels like a family home with different bedrooms split into 3 villas and everyone shares the communal areas. It had a really nice feel to it.
Cons: My only comment about this place would be the amount of mosquito's in our room. We traveled around Sri Lanka and didn't have this problem anywhere else.

Cons: Would liked to stay longer! Nothing wrong.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was the first stop in our 2,5 weeks around Sri Lanka and we couldn’t have wished for a better start. The setting is just perfect: a wonderfully designed and decorated house with a dash of the old Colonial Villas (not sure they are). We stayed in one of the suites in the Nisala Villa and enjoyed the indisturbed views of the Indian Ocean - and its soothing sound at night! The beach is precious, wild and desertic. We enjoyed walking practically alone and with no beach-boys at all and so we never actually went to the more touristic Bentota. Also, we just enjoyed winding down from our day-jobs and indulge in the luxury of just reading a book cover-to-cover on one go, while chilling at the garden or after a swim in the beautiful infinity pool. Plus points: The stuff is super nice and the food was delicious! Really enjoyed the spicy fried calamari, the fish tacos, the grilled fish and the curries! Oh, and they make also a mean French Toast for breakfast. Can’t recommend enough as your first or last leg of the trip!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was very good and it was nice to taste local breakfast. And there was possible to decide what time the breakfast was served. Owners took very good care and suggested and arranged things to do like boat trip by the river, visit in turtle farm and tour in Bentota. There is beautiful and peaceful beach nearby. Apartment (Villa) was clean and there was a air conditioning, which was very refreshing after long journey. Owners took very good care of us and we are grateful for that. Highly recommended place to stay!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was very authentic and tasty. They accommodated my wife who is gluten intolerant by preparing special Sri Lankan food made of rice flower. For new years day they prepared the traditional rice and coconut milk cakes for us. Room was very spacious and clean. Very nice front terrace to sit and relax on. A real treat to see and feed the monkeys which roam in the trees on the property. A very nice family operates the villa. It was special to speak to the son who is 20 years old and speaks very good English. He explained the history of the villa and how it was built by his grandfather. Easy 5 min walk to the beach. Nice swimming. It was convenient to have some plates and cutlery so we could buy some fresh fruit to eat. We reserved a tuk tuk to take us to the train station but when it didn't show up they offered to drive us in their vehicle which was nice.
Cons: They told us about the various tours in the area which we were not interested in ...maybe a little too pushy on this point. Our bill for two nights came to 57 USD or 10500 rupees as per the booking.com reservation and current exchange rate of 182 rupees. They brought us the receipt and it showed 11000 rupees. This equated to a rate of 192 rupees = 1 USD. The rate was never higher than 182 rupees in the past month so they clearly attempted to overcharge us. When I corrected her she quickly agreed to 11000 rupees. I really hope they simply made a mistake and did not try to take advantage of us because they were such a sweet and friendly family and everything else about our stay was great.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was very good and local. There was very beautiful garden and it was possible to see few monkeys there sometimes. Room was comfortable and clean. Owners took very good care and made sure that we had a great stay. I would go there again.

Pros: Calm and quite , 3 minutes walk to beach ,
Cons: Some staff mainly room service guys a bit awkward in response , bath kit not refilled for 2 days . Beach side Some chair or recliners should have been placed by hotel as that’s USP .
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful, both the building and the grounds. We had an enormous bed and a private courtyard area that opened onto the main garden/pool. Lovely mature trees and colourful flowers. The train line runs across the end of the garden and you walk over that straight onto the quiet beach. It was entertaining to watch the train chug along the single track as you lay by the pool. They aren't very frequent so are not disturbing. Staff very attentive. Pool towels carefully folded with flowers, and extras brought without being asked. A dish of nuts brought when it was noticed we were having a beer from the mini bar on our patio.
Cons: Location is fairly remote so not for long stays unless you just want to relax by the beach and pool.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Located in a quiet lane which has many other luxury villas. This had a very colonial feel , right from the moment we stepped in. We were welcomed with a glass of fresh papaya juice. Welcoming staff, especially Chaman who helped us find a good local taxi driver. All other staff people were very courteous & wanting to serve us well. And always with a smile on their faces. The room.... superb! Honestly, I didn’t expect it to turn out so good! It was huge!! With an added floor which had a kids bed. The bed was good & the chairs overlooking the garden were perfect for sipping ur Ceylon tea while doing nothing! The Sri Lankan food was very good; must try. You need to tell them a night before if u wish to have SL breakfast. The beach was just across the villa gardens. Only adventure was the railway line which u need to cross to reach to the beach. But the beach was good with not many people. I enjoyed my evening walks with my wife watching a lovely sunset. Lastly, A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AWAY FROM THE CITY CHAOS!!
Cons: I guess the bathroom needs to be updated a bit. Though kept very clean, just feels a little worn out! And the positioning of air con in the room. In the afternoon, It takes a long time to cool the room.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: We got upgraded for our anniversary to the Suite....which were stunning. We were over the moon with that surprise. The balcony view of the Indian Ocean and beach was breath taking. The rooms were immaculate, literally perfect. I loved the location and the Sunset. The Spa area was awesome too, it made me want to just keep getting treatments there. They have loads of fun activities which I was happy with. It was such a great place to go and you don't need to leave the resort to have fun. Highly recommend the Taj Bentota.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The courteous staff. Clean rooms. The beauty that surrounds the property.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing Service the staff were superb. Location is beautiful and they have an excellent Spa. Could not fault anything, food, location, staff.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The food was amazing. Chef Neeraj was very kind and amazing human being who made our special day really memorable.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was really tasty with a large variety of cuisines to choose from. Location was really beautiful. I choose to stay here as I just wanted a relaxing weekend and I planned to stay within the hotel the whole time. I don't think theres a huge amount of things to do in Bentota, but if you want a pool, beach and some food its a great choice!
Cons: I booked the room only by mistake. I found the buffet food a bit expensive with the evening buffet totaling 4,000 LKR per person. I don't tend to eat too much in one sitting so I ate off the separate menu as it was a bit cheaper.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff food and overall stay is excellent, good value for money
Cons: Only one restaurant (food was excellent but for a long stay it could get boring) and rooms/bathrooms are old

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was exactly how it was declared on the site. A good car for transfer, very clean rooms, really friendly and reliable staff. Especially, I’d like to thank Vanessa, а manager, whose unbelievable care, attention and quickness helped me to arrange things exactly I wanted. Everything, from breakfasts to excursions, was individually tailored.
Cons: Only one small thing - the air-conditioner was quite noisy, at least for me - my daughter slept with no problem.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great view from the balcony. big room, very clean. good service (boat transport to the beach for free), nice restaurant. good choice of water sports activities and boat trips (a bit pricey).
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Free boat service to the beach and back. Spacious room, amazing lagoon view. Friendly and very helpful staff.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I stayed at the Malu Banna for 2 nights while bicycle touring Sri Lanka for 2 months. Loved the resort! The staff and owners were wonderful and helpful. They have a beautiful place right on the riverfront and people can rent jetski's, go skiing, tubing, etc. Room was huge, great AC, WiFi in the room was fast, and comfortable bed (with mosquito netting). I highly recommend this resort!
Cons: Not a thing! This resort is incredible! Loved staying here!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Spacious and comfortable room overlooking the river. Good WiFi. One minute by free shuttle boat to the amazing beach of Bentota (can be taken at anytime as there is always someone to take you immediately to the beach). Great staff.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Rooms 1 and 2 (and the rooms below them) are spacious, very well appointed, and superbly situated with lovely balconies where we could spend much time gazing over the water. And we had lovely dinners sitting right by the water.
Cons: The staff is clearly overstretched at times. Rooms were cleaned very late.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Pushed the booking button and added a comment, yes I'd like transfers, and added my flight details, that was it all taken care of including the early check-in. I have only stayed in one place in Sri Lanka so far but I have to say, they could not have done any more to have accommodate us, our every wish was taken care of. The room was clean, perfect, the staff friendly and attentive. I really have no reservations to encourage you to go visit. I regret we only had four days there. (Oh and several of the sunsets were like paintings)
Cons: After several hot showers the bathroom door started to stick, we mentioned it, fixed. They really did take care of us, leaving the bill to the end makes most skeptics like me a little worried, but we put everything on the bill, beers, food, trips out, a day tour, a morning diving, and afternoon boat trip (fantastic nature, bats, owl, crocks, really), transfers, early check-in and when the bill was added, it almost was not enough! Sorry this has turned out not to be a dislike, because really I have absolutely no complaints at all. OOH, the streets approach is not the most attractive, they intend to change this, but it is not an issue.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Big and Clean room with nice balcony. Nice staff. Breakfast and food are good.
Cons: The room could use a stand to put your suitcase on.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice spacious and clean room with a lovely balcony with sea and river view. Lots of water sports and excursions available (although a bit pricey). Free boat transfer to the beautiful Bentota beach at any time on request.
Cons: They ask you the day before the time you want to go for breakfast and then make you wait 30-40 minutes sitting at the table before bringing you anything, even when you told you’re in a rush. We stayed two nights and one of them we nearly missed a train and the other they made us get to the airport at the very last minute, despite we had told the day before that we needed to be on time and despite we were the only costumers having breakfast at that time: the stuff in the morning is unaware of what agreed the day before. They arranged the airport taxi and then the driver asked for more money than agreed with the hotel. By the way the taxi arranged by the hotel is a bit more expensive than booked outside. They don’t make up the room daily. Breakfast is pretty basic and the same every day: fruit, eggs, bread, jam and tea or coffee.

Pros: Very friendly family. Breakfast and also the room was good. There was no air conditioning, but a fan was enough. It is very close to railway station, so it's easy to come to the hotel without a taxi or a tuk tuk. Is located directly opposite the supermarket. Shashi is very good person, also helpful. During my stay big sea turtle came to the hotel at evening. Shashi came to all the guests just to call us to look at it :)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great Hospitality
Cons: Nothing
4.3 Okay
Pros: The owners are extremely friendly. The lady understood that we left, accepted the cancellation of the 2 more nights and even made some phone calls for us.
Cons: The name Arcade Beach Resort made us expect something completely different. The entrance is a very small alley where you cannnot walk next to each other. The location is next to a Beach Club, very loud music during the night, impossible to sleep. We left after 1 night. The room we stayed in was very basic, mattress very thin, window facing a wall. Bathroom, toilet and lavabo completely under water after taking a shower. Room and bathroom floor were not clean. Internet connection very bad. This kind of rooms maybe suit to young backpackers, we did not feel comfortable ( couple age 50+ with world-wide travel experience for more than 35 years ) We paid U$ 40 which is a lot for this room. During our 1 month stay in Sri Lanka this was our worst experience, however the owners are the most friendly people.

The internet was very slow, The electricity was disconnected 2-3 times everyday. Spa service was so so and not worth the price. The access to the beach is tight and risky with too many rocky steps. And no beach beds at all..!! Overall, this resort will cost you triple price of much better resorts in srilanka.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Beautiful Garden & Pool as well as the beach in front of the Hotel is worth a visit!
Cons: The hotel is over 20 years old and despite some renovations it looks old. The staff except for one lady at reception were rude and unprofessional and expecting to be tipped for every service. Pool chairs are reserved by the guest and labeled by the pool attendant, once again for a tip! Most Guests are over 50 and German, so everywhere you go in the hotel you are addressed in German. If you are anything else than German you get ignored and if you are Indian looking and female, no attention is given what so ever! The western food presentation is outdated and the taste blend, the local food is westernized with no hint of spice at all! The room was very spacious, but old and worn out, located directly over the restaurant. Mattress was old, hard and supported by a wooden board underneath.

Pros: European standards of clean, the room was comfortable with a nice view, the lounge chairs by the pool were fantastic.The gardens were beautiful also and there was generally a nice atmosphere. pretty much what you would expect from any 'all-inclusive' hotel, even though I only went for the breakfast arrangement.
Cons: Hotel was completely German, including the information in the room and the movies showing on the television. For someone who is not German, this was a but frustrating. Hotel is filled with middle-aged people. As a younger female, I the hotel staff was a little to eager to interact with me and even approached me outside the hotel.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I liked that it was small children not allowed hotel.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The gardens were verdant and the best we have seen in Sri Lanka. The food was good and the rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. I especially liked the outside eating area that was covered with umbrellas and trees. A very nice peaceful environment. Several entertainment events available to enjoy if one wants and plenty of loungers, towels etc.. Walk outside and you are on the beach with lots of shops, restaurants and a safe place to snorkel.
Cons: As most guests are on inclusive packages it did take quite some time and a lot of paperwork to order and receive anything outside our B&B package. It did not affect our enjoyment but best to know that most of the guests are speaking German as their mother tongue.

Cons: Good Dinner but too expensive and Booking.com says it’s included in the price which afterwards we had to pay extra 25$ per person
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole concept was amazing. Peacefull and quiet. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. I recommend booking both rooms of the boat so that you can have complete privacy. It should be good for fishing enthusiasts as well.
Cons: The junior staff was ok, they should learn not to interfere during dinner. A senior staff member was trying to hoodwink me into paying for a cruise that was already booked by the other couple. He told me that we would be confined to our room during the cruise if we didn't pay this extra charge, which was not acceptable as I rightly pointed out that we had paid to use not only the room but all other common areas for the duration of our stay. Needless to say, this interaction led to diminish the overall experience of the trip as I had to get into arguments in my leisure time.

Pros: A truly magical experience. Words are not enough! The houseboat, the location, the food, the Captain and his crew truly fabulous. I travelled for 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, and this was the highlight. The captain helped with excursions and all my travel arrangements, providing transport whenever required. Morning and evening cruises were truly awesome, with nothing but the sound of nature (the houseboat has almost soundless engines). An experience I will never forget, and I will return! Do not miss a visit to Geoffrey Bawa's country estate "Lunuganga", and Bevis Bawa's "Brief Garden". Great empty beaches 10 minutes away by Tuk Tuk.
Cons: Nothing could have improved my stay, it was perfect!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The location was super good. Rooms are also very beautiful and clean. It is one of the best place to stay for a day. Bit costly so when you tired and wanted to rest in your trip then this is the best and romantic stay in Srilanka

10.0 Excellent
Pros: My room was beautifully clean fresh and welcoming with flowers on arrival. Free bottle of water. Soft towels. Fantastic space for my belongings and a safe. Lovely verandah. A few steps to the warm sea all I can say I felt it was all mine! The staff were very attentive and beautifully groomed and always friendly, smiling and nothing was too much trouble. Quite an amazing place with an element of privacy. The beach had no one trying to sell things which makes for a hassle free and leisurely stay. Breakfast included in the price was delicious and carefully presented . Restaurant on the beach with a very extensive choice of meals indeed I would say this restaurant was possibly the busiest on this stretch of the beach. Bus stop at the entrance or staff were able to organise trips by tuk tuk or car. Little quiet shops nearby for fresh fruit or that packet of crisps you just wanted. Very good massage on offer also. Small swimming pool but the sea was too good to miss. Highly recommend
Cons: Everything was just lovely

Pros: On the beach, had a reasonable size fresh water swimming pool, staff very friendly. They are social but not intrusive and always got loungers (free) out on the beach, didn’t hustle you to buy drinks or anything. They have a basic menu and there are other places to eat nearby. Rooms have good aircon. Good value for money
Cons: The shower in the bathroom was not that strong and towels etc changed only every other day. Not much storage space in room.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location right on the beach is fabulous but unfortunately it also means the main block is very close to the main road and railway track. We booked the double deluxe and couldn’t sleep due to the noise. Better to book a budget room.
Cons: Our ac didn’t work, we complained 3 times and moved room. The smell of sewage in the bathroom. The noise as above. When we checked out told there was 3% on credit card argued showing the advert on booking. Com says no credit card fee reception spoke to manager and we didn’t pay extra 3%

Cons: Not enough sunbeds, first we had room that was completly dirty but the second one was good but also bathroom was not clean for showering without flip flops.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I booked this place based on reviews as well as value for money and what I got is more than what I expected! The resort itself maybe modest, with only 6 rooms but the staff's hospitality and willingness to go the extra mile to deliver on your request feels like you are in 7-star hotel. Janith, the manager, always gives you what you need sometimes even before you asked for it. Chandrika the cook always whips up tasty and healthy meals for you, she made us fall in love with Sri Lankan cuisine. The therapists are amazingly good, especially Sriyani who treats you like royalty. Lastly Charith, the owner has made our stay so memorable giving us more than what we paid for! There is room for improvement for sure on the resort structure but if you came for the ayurvedic treatments and for total R&R, you will get so much value for your money. In fact, I felt so satisfied with them that I am coming back in August for a 14-day stay. The beach is 2-minutes walk away but you can hear the waves crushing from the property. We took a 15-minute tuktuk ride to Moragalla beach good for surfing and swimming weather permitting (Sun Surf Paradise surf school). Additional info: please bring insect repellent as you will need it for sure. You can pack lightly, they will wash your laundry for you free of charge. The ayurvedic doctor has a great reputation so you can rest assured. All the staff are professional and does their job with such warmth including the gardener and all-around assistant, Prasad. You will leave the place like a new person.
Cons: A small open-air gym would be a good addition. A treadmill, a stationary bike and a set of free weights would be really nice especially for those staying for a long time and are used to lifting weights.
6.8 Good
Pros: Nice and quiet place. Specialised on Ayurveda. Ayurveda treatments were good, but I expected to get more treatments per day.
Cons: Hotel not near usable beaches. For full pension I expected to get more value. I expected to get more treatments per day.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff is lovely. It is a good retreat. We were alone at the Villa so they were adapting the food to our preferences and not because we asked, just because they were so attentive. It's good value for money. There you can get a good affordable Ayurvedic experience.
Cons: The beach near the hotel is dirty and the location is not very good, but as it is actually a retreat and you have at the hotel all you need, it is not such a big problem.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Had a lovely stay at Villa Velmarie. Staff were amazing and caring. I became sick with a cold during my stay and they altered my treatments to care for my sickness. Food was excellent and my room was extremely comfortable and clean.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The worst experience ever. They lay to you from the beginning. It is not a hotel at all. It is a small villa with just 6 really small rooms. Most of them have pool view. It is declared as 4**** resort all inclusive. This not true. They will charge you almost 200 bucks per day. You can stay at 5***** hotel at the beach. Truly speaking it is not worth to 2** and 20 bucks per day. Nobody will tell you that it is strictly vegetarian with no alcohol. The food is absolutely disgusting. They serve even not cold water. You may ask for a tea or coffee or for cleaning the room. YES, this is also not a standard, the same like a fan or coffee set at the room. The stuff is friendly, but not the management at all. We have booked 2 weeks, but decide to leave after couple days. We had to pay the whole stay, no compensation at all. No discussion. Really the worst stay ever. There is nothing around. Than we moved to the really nice Palms hotel at the beach, which was completely different experience. Definitely warn everybody, skip this Ayurveda “Resort”, it is not worth it. Sri Lanka is nice, but not here….
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We ready enjoyed our retreat at Villa Velmarie! 1. Very comfortable rooms with a great garden and swimming pool. The perfect place to rest. There is a beach close to the villa but I would recommend to take a tuktuk and go to the beach near Maggona, 10 mins riding (restaurant, surf...) 2. Awesome staff, always here to help. 3. Great healthy food every day (the day starts with a little soup before the yoga class, then breakfast, lunch, snack and diner...we never starve) 4. Awesome treatment, more or less 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon. The doctor comes every 3 days to define the treatment/massage/medicine. The Ayurvedic staff is amazing and provide really nice massages. I would definitely come back!!
Cons: Everything exceeded my expectations, nothing to change. The place is not surrounded by restaurants and other activities but it is great to rest and escape from the crowd.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very nice, kind and helpful. Great massages, nice food. Shriyani my masseur was a funny lady, always happy and caring. Chantika the cook took a good care of me, even my special requests she delivered with a lovely smile :)
Cons: During my stay daily twice we had electrical problems (the whole area), therefore our A/C and internet was not continuously available.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We spend 8 days at the resort and had a good week. The staff was very friendly and always pleased to make us a comfortable stay. The resort was very clean and perfect for relaxing. The manager was open for improvements. Our stay here had a familiar character. You can easily get in touch with other hotel guests. Our booking via booking.com was the cheapest.
Cons: The hotel is good to relax and to see how Ayurvedic can be. If you want to make a professional Ayurvedic this is probably the wrong place. Some Ayurvedic standards are not held and you don’t get to know for what you get medicine. We got our sheets for the explanation afterwards. The agenda (breakfast, lunch, ...) is not always on time and you get different informations from the hotel internet site. The staff is overstretched. That‘s why we could not relax 100%. But they where very willing and warm. We had problably the best room at the resort. But it is also possible to get a Appartement (you can’t book it separately). So if you‘re not lucky, you could stay outside of the hotel at the busy main road and have to walk some minutes everyday to go to the hotel. That apartment would have been a no go for us. The food is monotonous and not always enough. After complaining the servings went bigger.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff is excellent and everyone was very nice. The Location was excellent with good amount of food options. More than the buffet enjoyed the 24 hr cafe ( but purely due to the personal preference of a really good nasi goreng served there). The main restaurants buffet was also pretty good with variety. A few of the people who stood out, Lahiru at the pool bar did a great job with recommending good drinks and giving a great service Orista from the Reception who was very nice to us from the time we checked in and, till we left the premises. talking to us and waving us good bye . All the pool staff, specially the two people who handles the water activities. The Server at the 24hr Cafe Great Job!
Cons: Really dont have much to say that I didn't like. There was one issue I quickly came across when I came to the room but, it was attended to very promptly by house keeping and fixed. So in a nutshell no Cons!
