“A wonderful dream come true.”
Reviewed 21 December 2009

I would like to say having traveled the world a fair bit , this has to be the best service we have ever had. My wife and i were married at this hotel on the 9th Nov 2009 and we were so pleased that we chose it as we were a bit concerned as this was our dream wedding location. It turned out to be fantastic from the accommodation to the staff and especially the attention to detail on our wedding day and throughout our stay. The accommodation was excellent and the rooms were kept immaculate through out our stay. The service from the waiters was excellent as were all the staff they made us feel so special. The facilities were very good , the spa, was fantastic especially after using the well equipped gymnasium. The food was second to none and the variety of food was amazing and extremely well presented.
The site seeing was very good, the elephant orphanage is a must as is the visit to the buddist temple. Locally the Turtle hatchery is worth a look as are the stilt fishermen. I would like to say that this holiday was amazing and would 100 percent recommend that if you are thinking about this location and hotel its a must . I believe the reason this holiday was exceptional was the hard work and dedication from all the staff from the manager to the guys who clean the rooms whose ethos is to make our dream holiday come true and they certainly did that . Thank you very much indeed. Gerry and Lesley

This is what lazy beach holidays should be all about... Wake, eat, drink, pool, beach..... and that's what is done best at Ahungalla Heritance. The food - especially breakfast was absolutely brill! They also arranged for a dinner on the beach with lobster & the works which was delicious & not expensive. The pools were glorious to just loll about it and for a change, it was nice to walk up the few yards onto the beach without being swamped by vendors trying to make a sale. I guess it was off season so there was nothing much happening at the night club; but I dont think we cared. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

Just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay.We were treated like royalty from start to finish!
I cannot fault any aspect of our holiday!
Excellent location right on the beautiful,long,sandy beach.
Spacious,immaculate suite with all amenities and good sea view.
Excellent food in all restaurants and the food and beverage manager personally checked each day to ask if we had any particular requests and made special meals to order!
The staff really make this hotel quite special.We found without exception that all staff from gardeners,room staff,reception staff,beach/pool attendants,bar and restaurant staff were very friendly,very efficient and could not do enough to make sure all guests were happy with everything, even though they were often faced with very rude, ill mannered,arrogant and unappreciative guests mainly from outside the UK !!
We met the new General Manager who was charming and very keen to maintain and improve the very high standards of this hotel.We hope he can market this hotel to encourage more couples only and less groups and families so that this wonderful hotel can remain the refined place it was designed to be.
We look forward to returning to this hotel and seeing more of this lovely country.
Thank you Heritance Ahungalla for a lovely holiday experience!

Actually I just come back from Srilanka November 09.
I was been 2 days in Colombo,2 days in Kandy and 2 days in Ahungalla
I thinks Heritance is the best hotel in srilanka.
the stuff and services was good and respectful.
very beautiful and colorful yard and a big and enjoyful swimming pool.
I think it is deserved to be more than a five star hotel.
the caltural show that held every nights in lobby is not good and should be replaced by a more enjoyful program
I recommend this hotel and I'm sure that you will happy if you are looking for full servive and relaxation

I have just returned form 10 days at the Heritance with my girlfriend and can honestly say there wasnt any aspect fo the hotel that was disappointing. I work for a top tour operator in england and have travelled around the world staying at many top hotels. The service at the Heritance matched, if not exceeded many of these. The pools were fantastic...clean, great suze and we had one of the two at leat to ourselves on many occasions..it was great!! Below are some further comments:

Room - was brilliant. It was a great size, really nicely furnished, clean with a great bathroom. Great views to pool and ocean. Cleaned daily.

Food - amazing! we were on ahalf board basis and te food was superb. Great choice, different them every day, fresh, beautiful curries!

Service - amazing. The staff were so attentive it was incredible. They were polite and friendly all the time. They alwas say hello and and make a real rapport with you throughout the time we were there.

Beach - lovely but you do get hounded a bit by the touts when you walk on it. Just ignore them if you want them to leave you alone. Theyre firendly though. The sea is a bit rough so you cant really swim in it.

Touts - if you want to get a taxi just ask one of the touts for a tuk tuk Its so much cheaper than the hotel taxis. We had the same driver for the whole 10 days and he was great. He took us to lots of places cheaply and was a safe driver. Dont be scared to use one..youll probably be a bit nervous the first time you get in one but then you can get their number and as soon as you want to go somewheer give them a call and theyll come and pick you up.

Overall..couldnt fault our time at the heritance in any way. Ive read some of the negative reviews on this site and cant really understand what theyre on about. One said this hotel was dated which is complete rubbish!

Feel free to email me if you have any questinos or want to know more.

Nick

We visited the Heritance Ahungalla in September having arrived on an early morning flight from Singapore. The journey from Colombo to the hotel took about 3 hrs but unlike some previous reports we did not find the" Sri Lankan driving experience" too alarming.On arrival at the hotel the reception staff were delightful and completed the check-in process quickly. Indeed the attitude of reception personnel was reflected throughout the hotel, but of particular note was Mr Arju Vijayarajah really did go the "extra mile" to ensure our stay was comfortable.
We stayed in a deluxe room with Ocean view and found the accommodation to be nicely proportioned with a good sized balcony. Also worthy of comment is the food which was well cooked and well presented. Altogether it was peaceful and relaxing experience.
