Had a lovely stay here after the long journey and adjusting to the time difference.About a 45 minute taxi ride to the hotel through very busy roads.When you arrive at the hotel you have to cross the river on a punted raft, probably 40 metres from one side to the other. Reception was very prompt with a cool drink and...

We stayed here for 3 nights at start of our holiday in Sri Lanka. The resort is in a lovely isolated location. The refurbished sea view chalets are good and overall it's a very nice place. Spoiled though by focus on all inclusive packages. Almost impossible to get a decent a la carte or room service meal or even a...

Ranweli Holiday Village is a beautiful resort situated on an island of its own. The experience is unique because tourists get to experience the beauty of Negombo's beaches and the privacy of being on a secluded little island. Rooms are cozy and villa style. Friendly staff and good food. No complaints. Highly recommended!

Located in awesome place where surrounded by both river and sea. It's very good nature friendly hotel with nice private beach. Great Pool and entertainment room with pool & TT table. Only two negative points, food and the service in the restaurant.

We stayed in a standard sea facing bungalow, room was good with sea view, powerful air con and a big bed and a nicely fitted out bathroom. Food was fine, I like the restaurant looking out to the sea. Service from reception was very attentive. Bar area to sit at night comfy. Its tranquil because its isolated, so nowhere busy...

This was 3 days relaxing at the end of a tour. It had a basic pool but not much else to do. Rooms comfortable and pleasant. Restaurant food and service was just about OK. It is pretty remote so not easy to visit any local areas. Unfortunately weather was not great so maybe that coloured our view.
