Had a great time here. Pictures, look nicee than it is, but still its a super hotel. Friendly people who take the time to think with you. Also we took a morning tour to the two mountains. Our driver Ajith really told us a lot about the country and was a really friendly guy! 😀

The staff at Sunduras were extremely warm and welcoming. They made us feel like extra special guests for our entire 1-week stay. This makes writing an honest review quite difficult. The fact is that being friendly is only one part of providing a great guest experience. Room

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for the time taken to share your recent experience at Sundaras Resort & Spa. We are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed the outstanding help from our staff, which is one of the most important parts of our concept. All our staff is always ready to meet any requirements of our guests and happy to make them feel special. After reviewing your booking details, we understand your concern and we would like to sincerely apologize that your stay was any less than perfect. Since you have booked in the last minute last available room during the high season (Christmas time), your rate was over 200$ a night which is really not reflecting and matching our standard prices. Therefore we highly recommend to all our guests to make their bookings in advance in order to get standard rates and even our Deals & Promotional offers, which we have throughout the year. However, all your observations about the room and the hotel facilities have been well noted and will be reviewed. We work hard on making our guests satisfied and their stay here memorable and we truly hope that you will have a chance to visit us again so we can make sure that you will experience superior services during your stay. Sharron Anderson Guest Relations Manager Sundaras Resort & Spa

Seems like you are pretty active in tripadvisor and I thank you for that. But this review is legit tho. Compared to all my other experiences in Sri Lanka, this hotel made our stay excellent. The thing I don't understand is, how this concerns you? I must say that I'm no expert to rate hotels but our stay was pleasant in this hotel only because of the staff. I did notice while trying to find hotels in Sri Lanka that some reviews were really obvious fake posts. In few hotels we actually were offered either free drinks or discounts from food if we recommended the hotel in either booking or tripadvisor. So i would say I understand your point. Both hotels that fished for the reviews were poorly managed, and had only few guests beside us. If this picture is being used by some other review let me know and I make sure i report it. Anyway have a nice day, and keep up the good work.

Greetings Sundaras is fine place to stay as compared to others in the vicinity. It's not a very huge hotel so I highly doubt that you'll find a spare room for your driver, that too free of cost. There are some other hotels close by which are cheaper. Their restaurant is only alright but they will surely have some vegetarian dishes on the menu.
