Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the second year in succession we stayed at hotel Anarva, On both occasions we stayed for two weeks. The suite was spacious and clean with daily daily house keeping. The staff and management were courteous and extremely helpful. Breakfast was superb with a wide ranging choice. Very generous with tea/coffee making facilities.
The view from the suite absolutely breathtaking. Transport wise very convenient and located close to several restaurants. Absolute value for money. I recommend this place with every confidence.

This hotel is used as a quarantine centre and charges LKR 14,000 for a double room LKR 11,500 for a single room per night for 14 days. I understand that this not a normal operation however as paying gusets (higher than the usual rates of this hotel and compared to other 5 star hotels used as quarantine centres at the same rates) this hotel does not even have the basic facilities. Wifi does not work and although we informed several times to the hotel no action was taken. There is no ventilation, no balcony. Windows cannot be opened and our requests to open was turned down. Food was very very basic and considering the price it was totally unacceptable.
The hotel must be making a hefty profit out of hard earned money of the expartiate workers who with greatest difficulty paid. Value for money is zero. Totally dissapointed

I have just been to this facility for a full body massage and the experience I had was terrible. I booked over the phone but when I arrived, the manager was trying to find where my booking was and who I am. They had mixed up my booking with another client who had booked with me with similar name. The manager spoke to me to clarify who I was. The hospital wanted me to come to the hotel but the people in the hotel did not have a clue. They don't have a proper system to follow up clients.

They charged me more than what I was told on the phone and when I questioned they said because the room was air conditioned and better facility they need to charge more. When I went in to the spa room facility it was 31 degrees in temperature and full of sunlight in to the room. Attached are photos as proof. After my treatment I complained about it but they never even offered an apology or compensation for facilities that they couldn't uphold. Instead they said to write my issues to their management.

Treatment itself was good but since the overall experience was extremely bad and it was definitely not value for money.

I will never recommend this place to anyone. You would rather pay a bit more and go somewhere else like Spa Ceylon in Mount Lavinia.

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay at Anarava while visiting Sri Lanka from the United States. This hotel is brand new, clean, comfortable and the service is fantastic. It is situated at a convenient location within easy reach to shopping and restaurants. Our suite was very nice, clean, and had an exceptional view of the ocean. The staff was warm and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay extra special. I experienced the best 30 minute head massage at the Ayurveda Spa which provides many other relaxing massages and treatments at affordable prices. The food was fantastic and the chef was very accommodating to our dietary needs and special requests. We highly recommend the Anarava hotel.

The hotel is almost brand new with superb staff and good facilities. But the most important aspect is thier in house Ayurvedic spa. They have packages at very reasonable rates with good staff inclusive of a ayurvedic doctor. It also has a rooftop pool with a well stocked bar at reasonable prices. They even have a good gym. On the downside the breakfast was not up to standard in Sri Lankan context

Sorry, I stayed in a convencional room which had two twin beds. But most “suites” in Sri Lanka had one king bed.
