Location is great as its in the city itself, accessible with restaurants and shops. But place is not clean, rooms haven't seen a proper makeover in years. Water ran out on the day we were supposed to checkout. Apparently the water pump had broken but it seemed like regular occurrence and there was no hurry to fix it

It was a great place taking in to consideration the location and the facilities they offer. The gym looks really good and even the spa. But the rooms aren't that great they can improve a lot more. The drivers quarters were really hot our driver didn't get any sleep. So I think they need to improve in that area.

This is located near a paddy filed. has a very small pool. Accommodation is quite general. Food is OK but average. Price though high for the quality of the hotel. Need a big pool for this kind of hotel.

Stayed for one night in March 2017 during a trip to Anuradhapura . Dirty hot rooms, not very well maintained.lovely location food not good at breakfast. I think it is overpriced and there are many other hotels which offer better value for money.

We paid around USD 120 per night in a chalet and it was very badly maintained. The Bathroom was sooooo dirty and the buffet breakfast was also not worth for money.This is Spa in a great location and really sad to see the management of this property is not even to any standard.

very poor in quality, extremely high priced terrible food and worst staff one can imagine Even there is no pace for you to sit while dinning smell is very bad. No buffet but a set menu with a very poor selection. They don't clean the room even when you ask 100 times

Smiles. Juice. Warmth. Paddies. Such are the treasures of Avasta resort and spa. Hot water from the ceiling shower will flow over your body and leave you refreshed. And speaking of plentiful flows: if you're the runny eggs type, prepare for a cascade of delicious yolk rushing across your breakfast plate. Or have an omelette; the world is your organic...

We stayed in one of the so called "Chalets" at $120/night. For that money and in general, the quality and service level was catastrophic. Some examples: - "Chalets" are very dark and interior is outdated. Nothing luxurious - Extensive mini bar price list but empty fridge - Toilet not clean upon arrival - No shower gel and shampoo - A...

We visited Avasta from the 28th to the 30th of December (2 night stay) and it was one of the best hotel experiences ever. We were a little bit skeptical in the beginning (Before we entered our room) because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, but our experience was quite the opposite. We booked a triple bedroom Villa; which was recommended...

This is a five star charging hotel and providing zero star service.The most horrible hotel I've ever stayed. Only good thing is the visibility of room. Other than that its a night mare. Way too expensive for what they are offering. Gave the keys to reception when going out in the morning and specifically told to get the rooms cleaned...
