Quite unusual design, all polished concrete. Very welcoming reception. Great, reasonably priced food. Enjoyed the pool. Setting very tranquil. The fact they are in process of building more rooms didn't bother us

This place is very good value for money. The rooms are huge, the beds comfortable. The breakfast is great and so was the coffee. The pool is also lovely to swim in. My low would only be the buffet dinner, food was slightly cold but we got there early. The best tip from me is to have a foot massage...

This was a good hotel, good staff and a good restaurant. The pool was lovely although the pool surroundings could do with being better. The beer was expensive as with most hotels in Sri Lanka. The food was of a good standard and not overly expensive. Our only negative thoughts are that it was quite far away from the town...

I stayed three nights here, and am struggling to find positive things to say. The first room I has allocated overlooked a construction site, had half used toiletries, and pictures hanging off the wall about to fall on top of you. To be fair, they then gave me a different room the next day but except for the view of...

An oasis in a vast sea of noise and traffic, this hotel is a well located in a mango grove next to some rice fields. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, common areas are welcoming. The elevated dining area offers a beautiful view of the countryside and the pool. Breakfast was excellent.

We stayed for one night at the Thilanka resort while touring Sri Lanka. We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel with its quirky design. The approach is impressive, through groves of mango trees, giving it a nice rural feel. Because of the layout of the site, some rooms are situated a long way from the main reception/restaurant building - but the walk...

I loved this hotel. It was very cheap. It has amazing views of the town and the large Buddha. Rooms were a bit dated and the bed was too hard. But it was ok for the price. Restaurant had terrific buffets and excellent service. There is a bar enclosed in glass on the edge of the property with views all...

The walk to the reception and the rooms could be quite difficult for people with walking disabilities.All Deluxe rooms have the same view of vegetations also lots of Mango trees.
