We had a lovely stay at Sundaras resort - we stayed for three nights and found the staff to be very helpful and attentive. Special mention to Paul the bar tender at the pool! The buffet at breakfast and dinner were decent and the hotel is in a good location to major sights such as the golden cave temple and...

We stayed here one night. Some confusion about billing was later corrected. Partly it was because we were confused. But, they dropped a partial refund to us in Kandy! Always get numbers on paper. The room was ok. No hot water and the wifi is weak - but that can happen at an expensive place, too. The pool and food...

We were here for 3 nights and had a great time. It was a fantastic spot to come "home" to after a long day of sightseeing. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed talking with them. Just read one of the bad reviews recently written, and feel like those issues/complaints were greatly exaggerated. (reminds me that...

This place is both surprisingly good and surprisingly bad. In fact, it is full of surprises, full-stop. Firstly, we were tipped off to book a stay here via a booking site as we were planning just to pop in. Thank god we did, as we ended up with a discount of 55%. Secondly, the pool looked particularly alluring in such...

We had a 3 nights fantastic stay at Sundaras. This is one of the places, where the reality is better than the pictures. The nice atmotsphere, all the helpful people, the big pool, piecefull garden with monkeys, verans and birds and the amazing buffet dinner and breakfast. Our 2 kids (9 + 12) loved it here, and everyone were so...

We chose this hotel based on multiple good reviews on tripadvisor. What a mistake. When we arrived the reception was unattended and there was no electricity. The power was turned on before it got dark. We rented a pool view family room. Well, there is no pool view. The room is dark and musty. Full of mosquitos. Linens have stains,...

Sundaras resort&spa is one of my best and favorite place to stay in Sri Lanka. Everything is just far beyond my expectations: friendly staffs who are always ready to help; beautiful garden with an amazing pool for relaxing and enjoying best cocktails they make; their restaurant offers the best local & western food at very raisonable price. Plus they have...

Stayed there for one night, could have easily stayed for more. Check in was a breeze, room was very spacious and clean and bed comfy. Amazing pool and bar area with hammocks. All the staff were pretty courteous and friendly except for the bar guy from Norway/Netherlands?? He appeared to be quite short and annoyed when asked general questions about...

Excellent location for visiting Dambulla, Sigiriya and Pidurangala. The hotel arranged our visit to Pidurangala to watch the sun rise and it was spectacular. Guide/driver knew what he was doing and where he was going, got us all to the top of the mountain and then over to Sigiriya, brought us back when done. (Breakfast packet was OK, nothing special.)...
