We went there with our baby (1 Year old). It was an amazing place with a quiet surrounding. Ideal for relaxing. Well maintained garden by the beach was really beautiful and our baby was also enjoyed a lot. Spacious rooms with sea view. pool side landscaping and architecture is really cool. even the staff were really friendly and easy to...

The resort is rather far from the main attractions in Sri Lanka, so probably unsuitable for a long holiday unless you just want to lie around on the beach, but it is close to the airport and ideal for the first or last few days of a tour. The housing units are detached and spread around the resort. Some are...

WOW!! What an amazing place! We chose Ranweli as our honeymoon resort... no regrets! The food, service, people, location, cleanliness were all perfect... The ferry ride across the river adds to the feel that you are truly on holiday and away from any cares or worries. As you step out of your bungalow, the beach stretches for over 1 mile,...

The food and service quality was so bad. Random water cuts, lack of attention & lack of foods made us so frustated. Not recommend to visit. they dont have sufficient care takers & takes so long to attend to even a simple request.
