Stayed here for a couple of nights during our honeymoon. We were really impressed by how friendly the staff were. The pool area was absolutely lovely. We did the tour with the hotel to sigyria, which worked really well, it left early so we could climb a nearby rock, to see sigyria at sunrise. Not many others doing so when...

Awesome people, so many laughs and fun had with the guys at Sundaras! A little hidden paradise off the dusty Dambulla road with delicious drinks at the pool bar. One of the highlights of our trip to Sri Lanka. Cheers guys!

We stayed at Sundaras Resort & Spa for two nights on route from Negombo to Kandy and couldn't have found a better place. Lorrena and Isa (I hope my spelling isn't too wrong!) were extremely welcoming and helpful from the start! We got upgraded to a superior room for free which was over looking the pool and had its own...

I stayed for quite a few days in Sundaras resort. It's a resort filled with character and soul. The staff was amazing, loving and caring people, and. It's a perfect sized resort to enjoy a luxurious vacation without getting disturbed by busy surroundings. The location is great for some excellent attractions. I went to Sigeria rock, the cave temples, and...

Staff are so helpful and gave us lots of advice about the area - helped us make some great choices about places to visit instead of the expensive tourist sites like Lion Rock. Instead we climbed Pidurangala Rock for 500 rupees each, which was an amazing experience and gives you the same view! Rooms are spacious and clean. We had...

Wonderful place, nice clean rooms, lovely pool with jacuzzi and a tremendous location, 5 minutes away from all the temples. The staff is what makes the place - welcoming and very lovely. Thank you for the tremendous stay.

The hotel is very near to the Golden temple. Rooms are clean, the pool and bar make a relaxed atmosphere. Staff was nice, helpful with travel planning. They organised for us a three day trip, our driver Saman was an interesting and patient guide.

Great hotel, wonderful pool and rooms. Super helpful staff got us on a jeep safari within an hour of turning up. Menu is largely Chinese rice dishes but tasty and good value. Great base for caves, parks and Sigiriya.

The location just back from the main road, and yet no disturbance from traffic noise is excellent. The staff are well trained, attentive and helpful - if there was a small problem eg the kettle wasn't working properly and it was replaced within a couple of hours. The breakfasts were wonderful - a diversity of foods from tropical fruits and...

We had booked Sundaras on a whim the night before we left for Sri Lanka and were so glad we did as it ended up being a highlight of the whole trip. The resort is located very close to the cave temples (a must see) and provides great tour packages to Sigiriya Rock and the nearby Elephant Sanctuary. The sanctuary...
