Reviewed 25 February 2014

Amazing place; very helpful treatment; friendly stuff, who were very attentive to our inquiry. This hotel is very suitable for quite family rest. Our travel through Shri-Lanka was very interesting and funny with hotel driver Upul, who is very reliable. Thanks Dalmanuta! =)

A little bit up the Bentota River is this peaceful pearl situated. Warm and sunny, but still a fresh breeze, like a warm Noridc summer day, thanks to all the trees in the enchanting Dalmanuta park. The food is nothing less than oustanding. It´s a joy to taste Shellfish, Sea bass, Fresh Tuna, Curry, Vegetables or whatever. Chief Athoula is a master of the kitchen, you simply can't find similar culinary surprises anywhere ells in the neigbourhood. Even desserts are fantastic experiences.

Their Ayorvera massage and Yoga is something I'll always will be longing back for. The bungalows are spacious and nice, The pool is also clean and fresh.

The members of the Dalmanuta team are so kind, caring and warm-hearted, all of them, I felt like a part of a family. I defenitely whish to come back soon and to enjoy time with them again.

2 friends and I happened on this beautiful resort after spending 3 days in Hikkaduwa, we were tired of the constant dance music that would overpower the everything (I am an electronic musician but it was too much for even me :)).

So we looked at a map of Sri Lanka and headed to the nearest river. We arrived in the area late, at around 10pm. after heading through very rural areas and small roads. It was feeling like a great adventure already but little did we know that our 2 day adventure was just about to begin.

Dalmanuta was the only place that was open for dinner, it was Poya (a buddhist holiday celebrated every full moon day), and we were lucky to find any place at all along these quiet village roads.

The gate opened up to an unexpected large area dotted with luxury housing, we would later find that these accommodations where more like homes than hotel rooms with gardens and tall greenary that separate you from your neighbors.

We were happily surprised to be able to sit inside a dinner area that was actually planted in the river itself. We ordered a selection of delicious main courses while the river breeze passing through our dining area kept us cool. Dinner in majestic nature.

As we finished our meal the owner of the resort joined us and started chatting. We immediately became friends. He then opened up a room for us, the place was fully booked but he made some changes and gave us a room/house.

We spent the next two days there, it is impossible to describe all the experiences we had but swimming backstroke in the resort pool while staring at the moon at 3am was magically. We spent time in the hot for a spell too.

After breakfast we went on a boat ride through mangroves to Bentota beach. It is remarkable that the river flows parallel the beach area for a stretch.

The quiet serene atmosphere is exactly what we wanted. My travelling buddies had massages and we all took yoga classes. The garden areas a large and well thought out, with pools of water and walkways. Just beautiful.

Highly recommended!!

Me and My family spent some wonderful relaxing days at this fantastic place. The setting at Bentota River is fantastic. The staff is friendly and very service minded. The food was delicious and last but not least, the yoga and the massage was very relaxing. Dalmanuta is a place we warmly recommend also for teenage families.

Four nights of utter relaxation at the end of a busy two weeks tour of Sri Lanka; there could have been no better way to end our holiday!
Beautiful restful gardens, delicious fresh food, attentive service, lovely accommodation, everything we could have wished for and more.

Room Tip: We had number 11 and it had an ample sized, private garden.

After 14 days with Ayurveda massage, yoga, sunbathing and resting I realised that I have spent 14 days in Paradise. Excellent food, the largest lagoon-shrimps I have ever eaten, perfectly fried tuna fish, lobster, sea-bass etc. Friendly and service minded staff, spacious, clean rooms with a private porch and garden. Possibility to take quiet strolls in the lovely garden or longer morning walks in the outside little village. I did both small excursions to the neighbouring village, beach end temple and also longer excursions to Galle, Pinnawela elephant orphanage, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya but returned with joy to Dalmanuta to enjoy the peacefulness. I truly recommend the place and will sure be back!
