Room & Suite (10)
Pool & Beach (5)


Just 5 minutes off the bustling and vibrant ancient city of Dambulla is the tranquil river fronted oasis of Grand Kalundawa Waterfront Resort with its majestic century old kumbuk trees and relaxing lush greenery. The charming getaway is a modern semi-boutique style hotel in a colonial themed building with an outdoor swimming pool overlooking a natural river. Rooms feature typical Sri Lankan-style furnishings, attached bathrooms, satellite TV, fans and air conditioning. With dusk fall, sit down for romantic candlelit dinner with wine and a western or traditional meal, custom planned or by our chef, at our tree house and let those bonds rekindle. You can also try the medieval BBQ diner by river. We serve western, Chinese and Sri Lankan dishes at the restaurant, Alternatively, you may also opt for room service or packed lunches. Our staff will happily provide individualised services and Day trips, Village excursions, elephant safaris or canoeing. We are centrally located to Dambulla Cave Temple (2 min drive), Ibbankatuwa ancient cemetery (8 min), Sigiriya lion rock(25 min) and Minneriya safari national park (30 min). Bandaranaike International Airport (Colombo) is 2.5 hour away. We can arrange Airport pickup.
