We were a bit travel weary when we arrived at Mahaweli Reach in the late afternoon. From the moment we arrived my travel companions and I were treated with such welcoming hospitality that our spirits were lifted. We were escorted to our room by a member of the front desk staff and our bags arrived shortly afterwards. Our driver had nice accommodations as well. After seeing the Kandian drummers and dance performance at the cultural center we chose to eat our dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Each of our choices were beautifully prepared, presented and absolutely delicious. We returned to our room to find the beds turned down, slippers placed near our beds, a lovely bookmark and small bouquet of flowers on our pillows- a lovely touch of hospitality.
It was nice to see that this older established hotel had both local clientele and travelers from other parts of Sri Lanka as well as foreign travelers. The hotel grounds are beautifully maintained and if you choose to wander through their gardens you will notice many of the trees and plants have botanical labels for identification. The area around the pool simply invites you to sit and have some type of refreshment and take a dip to cool you down after a hot day of sight seeing.

"Relaxing setting, great views, stunning gardens."
Very much enjoyed our stay, pleasant walks in the gardens, and trekking around the area, hotel guides helpful, pointing out the tea, coffee, and cinnamon. The views were stunning from our balcony, and room was very clean, with good facilities, tv , tea ,coffee, mini bar etc.
It makes a very relaxing place to stay, a little out of the way, so transport required to Kandy, but making a secluded getaway.
Great breakfasts, very large buffet catering for just about every taste, with bar meals available until late.
The staff were all pleasant and helpful, all in all, and very nice place.
