Well, within a few hours it was clear that we had lucked upon the Fawlty Towers of Serendip. We had booked, but on arrival our hosts suggested that we must have meant some other place, so shocked did they seem that we actually intended to stay there! This is a resort of five large clean rooms, a beautiful dining verandah,...

Arriving from UAE i have experienced typical excellent sri lanka Hospitality at Grand Kalundewa during my short christmas holiday to Sri lanka . Location was not so difficult to find it out as it's easy accessible from the main road. Property was recently refurbished and felt so pleased for choosing as my holiday venue. Check in was very smooth &...

We stayed at the Kalundeva resort (as it is now called) for one night. The room was okay, with a comfortable king-sized bed and a small dining corner. However, because of the heavy rainfall we had minor leakage in our room, plus some of the lights weren't working and the bathroom could've used some proper cleaning and maintenance. The main...

But the receptionist of the Hotel entirely destroyed our holiday in Sri lanka.On our arrival, she condemned us as we are back packers who travel only for cheaper rates.She was interested on her phone (FB) more than registering our check in.Although the rest...

This is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. We had reservations here, and once we found it, decided not to stay. One room had no air conditioning (despite repeated requests to staff, and despite their assurances that it would work "in 5 minutes"), no room had a private balcony as advertised, Internet available only in lobby, no...

We stayed for two nights. Rooms were clean. Food was ok - breakfast was better than the dinner we had. Staff were friendly and the wifi in the "Lobby" was good but poor reception in rooms. Two of the three rooms we had leaked but not to the point where we were inconvenienced. The place is quite a ways from...

Do yourself a favor and find another place! This place was nothing like its description and the most disappointing part was that it need not have been as bad as it was if someone had just taken a little trouble to clean it up. The buildings are quite new but do not resemble the publicity photos as they have deteriorated...
