Pelwehera Village Resort
Ranked #13 of 18 Hotels in Dambulla
Reviewed 9 November 2017

Our group of 6 senior citizens stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our recent Sri Lanka tour. We found the hotel and its facilities to be very good. The rooms were spacious and well provided for. The greenery within the resort was very pleasing to the eye. The best part was the staff in the restaurant who took special care of us vegetarians! The only issue was that wifi was not available in the rooms - we had to spend time in the lobby to check our mails etc. However, this was a small issue in an otherwise pleasant stay.

A very special note to the dining staff manager who went out of his way to provide us with everything we asked. I was travelling with my parents (both senior citizens) and my sister. Now all of us are very light eaters. While the buffet is something worth drooling over, it was not something which my parents fancied. So we requested the staff if they could provide us with some rice and daal instead. The manager not only went out of his way to provide us Daal and Rice but also gave papad and curd along with this. This goes to show the great amount of service and thoughtfulness in serving the guests.
If I have to give one thing that could have been better, it would be to increase the options on the ala-carte menu. That was a little disappointing. But it more than made up with the service provided. I stayed here for 2 nights, but am definitely going back for a few more. Amazing stay, amazing staff and just fantastic ambience.
For me, Wifi was not an issue since I was on a holiday and wanted to stay away from any connectivity,

Room Tip: Get the one near to the lobby for Wifi or ground floor

We stayed here for two nights whilst we were exploring the sites of Dambulla and Sigiriya. Throughout the first week in Sri Lanka we had an absolutely amazing guide (who showed us all the best places and had lots of contacts for great deals) and it was thanks to him we stayed here.

The location is perfect for easy access to Sigiriya, Dambulla and the local national park and there are wild elephants that sometimes pop out of the jungle - the area just by the hotel is called "Elephant Corridor". We saw two on separate occasions just by the road. When we visited the local national park (again our driver/guide called Janaka arranged this) we saw maybe 80 wild elephants.

The hotel is well appointed, the rooms are generous in size and boast all the mod cons, the food is excellent and the customer service is outstanding - the staff throughout our stay couldn't do enough for us. They really made our stay so special.

After a hard days exploring it was great to return to the hotel and take advantage of their spa treatments - we had massages on both days. The treatments were excellent, very reasonable and the therapists very professional.

For those that need wifi it is available in the main lobby and is strong enough for emails, social media and FaceTiming family.

All in all I would highly recommend this hotel and would certainly return. Thanks again to our guide Janaka for recommending this hotel.

We stayed here for one night. It is a beautifull place to stay. The room was big, nice beds and everything was clean.
The swimming poole is large, so you can swim easy.
The dinner and the breakfast were good. The only thing is that at dinner the courses very quick were served.
They hav a beautifull garden and the staff is friendly.

Overall, we found the place, the amenities and the people to be fine. The view from the balcony was good (open to a large field, with peacocks/peahens). The spread at breakfast was good.

Large open spaces and places to sit make this ideal for couples and families.

There is provision for free driver stay - so if you are planning to use a taxi, you will save on driver stay costs.

Wifi is an issue (as was with all my stays in Srilanka). Only available in the lobby. Plan to buy an Internet pack.

Recommended.

Room Tip: Top floors.
