9.6 Excellent
Pros: We absolutely loved our stay at Kahanda Kanda. Unfortunately we were only there for the one night but could have stayed much longer. Set in a working tea estate, it’s location is idyllic. Although there are several villas around, we couldn’t see them from ours (Hibiscus) and so felt like we had our own private villa with a beautiful pool. It felt really intimate. To top it off, the food was excellent and nothing was too much for the staff. We couldn’t recommend this place enough!

Cons: Nothing

Pros: The staff is incredible. Everyone is so sweet and very attentive. While small, the grounds and views are beautiful. The hotel is beautifully decorated and everything was incredibly comfortable.
Cons: The water in the shower was not hot. I also wish the spa was a little more relaxing. It's small, shades closed so you can't really enjoy the scenery, and the lights were on. Would be great to see a little more investment in this space.

We had 2 beautiful meals cooked especially for us which we had out in the gardens, everything was amazing, the food, the service, the setting, again nothing was too much trouble. On our last day Chaminda the owner drove us to the train station and help organise our tickets to Colombo. I’d thoroughly recommend this villa it made our last days in Sri Lanka very memorable.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really beautiful and the staff is great. A very quiet and beautiful place in Galle
Cons: Do not take the soaps from the bathroom!! My little daughter took them, a employee checked before we went and he said from the window to the manager when we were leaving.

The situation made us feel a little bad and uncomfortable.

Food was really good and the staff were always so helpful and friendly and the room was really nice, spacious and clean. I’d recommend this place to stay for couples wanting a relaxing beach holiday.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property with incredible staff, especially Antony who handled everything - front of house, guest relations and service at the restaurant. The cleaning and kitchen team were all friendly and very welcoming. Great food served at the restaurant. Location was perfect, close enough to walk to other properties and restaurants, and still have that peaceful relaxing experience that isn't too busy. Ten minutes from Unawatuna, and fifteen minutes from Galle Fort for a more busy tourist vibe. Beautiful beach with turtle watching from your balcony.
Cons: Unfortunately we had four days of torrential rain which brought about a few unforeseen issues in one of the two rooms we had booked, however the team ensured our comfort and offered a great alternative room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant staff, very helpful. Assisted in resolving any questions, agreed for the early check-in and late check-out. Good breakfast, very nice view and the hotel area.

Pros: The entire staff, from room service, pool supervisors, waiters in the restaurant all the way to front desk were friendly, welcoming and attentive at all times. The location is absolutely stunning.
4.0 Okay
Pros: The location is spectacular.
Cons: The service was disappointing from the moment we arrived until after we left. A young lady who said she’d only been with the hotel for one month and who couldn’t answer basic questions about the hotel greeted us. It was downhill from there. The Fortress room was enormous and largely empty. They should put a sofa bed in the room and perhaps a good reading chair. It’s like sleeping in an empty warehouse. Food was only mediocre - the buffet was typical and not great. A la carte options were a bit better. But mostly it was the service that was poor - they managed to misplace an important document I had to courier to Colombo, delaying its delivery. We were disappointed especially because the hotel came highly recommended - it’s a good hotel for those who don’t expect great service. But it is far from a great hotel.

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly stuff, nice rooms and a beautiful beach just around the corner. Liked also to be a bit away from the beaten tracks :-)
7.1 Good
Pros: Basic guesthouse near the beach that we were not able to visit because of the high waves. There is one shop just next to the guesthouse where the holder also cooks dinner. The guesthouse owner organized airport pick-up and transfer to our next destination in air conditioned comfortable van by a very kind taxi driver. Breakfast was very simple continental type.
Cons: Recommended only for short stays, we stayed there one night. Located on the main road which is very busy so walking to nearby places is highly discouraged.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Had a perfect one night stay at Anara. Just a pitstop before a wedding nearby. Kasun was very hospitable and accomodating. Especially as I mucked up my dates! The room had all I needed. Just a bit closer to the main road than I imagined but all was great.
Cons: Not many dinner options open nearby with the off season, so I just went next door to the super local family kitchen. Great meal for 400rs. Free smiles and laughs ;)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is a fantastic value for money, location is great - 2 min walk from the beach. Room has everything what is needed - hot water in the bathroom, shampoo/shower gel, iron, minibar, etc. Breakfast was tasty & more than enough food. Kasun is a very welcoming host, he is always around and provides all the necessary information. Thank you! :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpfull staff. Good looking room, big bathroom, nice bed, close to the beach! Very cheap price for this accomodation!
Cons: Wifi is not always working.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This place is an absolute steal for the price I paid. The room is very clean, comfy beds and great pillows, strong Wi-Fi, a shower with HOT WATER and toiletries and the room even had a little mini fridge. The fan worked well and the room was a very pleasant temperature. There was even a little terrace outside the room with a table. There was a cute little rooftop terrace with a hammock that was lovely during the evenings. The local beach is only about a 2 minute walk away through a beautiful little palm tree field, and protected by a reef which makes swimming possible even during rougher seas. There were some cute little rock pools full of fish and friendly locals. As the hotel is on the main road getting there by local transport is very easy. The owner was very kind, walking me to the beach and showing me where the local restaurants were (there are 2 near by - a local rice and curry place and a more expensive western restaurant that looked lovely, however I didn't eat there). They also had a very fairly priced menu for meals at the hotel if you wanted it, but again I didn't try anything. It's walkable distance from Dalawella Beach where you can swim with turtles (30 minutes) and just a very short bus trip into Unawatuna main beach area.
Cons: The location, whilst great for accessing the beach and for bus transport, is on the main road and thus very noisy with traffic. The rooms are not very soundproof and as a light sleeper it wasn't ideal for me. The room I stayed in was damp and everything had a damp smell, however I am very sensitive to mould and dampness so this may be less of an issue for others. If not for the dampness and noise I could have happily stayed here for many nights, as everything else was incredible!
7.5 Good
Pros: Great Host!! Very Friendly and Fulfill all our requests Recommended and Value for Money!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner is friendly, it is located close to the beach and the room was very clean.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A dream come true: a truly amazing place, surrounded by coconut trees and many other plants, beautifully designed. Every and each detail is just perfect and you‘re feeling as if paradise really exists. This is certainly not only the most beautiful place we stayed in Sri Lanka, but also one of the best places we‘ve ever been to. Go for the Rice Paddy for your honey moon, this is a big private bungalow with outdoor shower under coconut trees and a Bowers & Wilkins wireless speaker, but of course the double rooms are fantastic as well, all of them nicely furnished and with a lot of antiques. Indika and his friendly staff make your stay unforgettable and they are ready to help you with whatever problem or desire you might have.
Cons: Nothing at all.

Pros: Really enjoyed our stay here. The access to the beach from the hotel is not the best. Saying that, the Galle fort is anyway a hop step and a jump. For a good relaxing stay, this place is ideal. The staff were extremely good and was very helpful with my one year old.
Cons: A bit disappointed with the prices for Dinner etc, so we went out of the hotel and had meals. Other than that, i'd say its a good enough hotel for a short stay.

7.9 Good
Pros: The first impression from the lobby is so relaxing, the view of the pool will make you want to get into it right away. We were given a very warm welcome by the staff. Cold refreshing towel which smelt amazing along with welcome drinks. Saku then explained us what facilities they have in the hotel. It wasnt a regular check in, it was very relaxed and friendly. The rooms are big, we were upgraded to ocean view which was stunning. It was loveeee. I highly recommend this hotel for couples, families, friends. Everyday there was a little snack in our room. Breakfast was very good, the pool is heavenly. The staff in the hotel is exceptional. Loved our stay !!
Cons: The spa in the hotel wasn’t great. The staff was walking in heels. God body massage done and it was mediocre. I have definitely been to much better places for massages. There was no welcome drink, no herbal tea, no ambiance was created, the staff wasn’t prepared, the lady swept the massage room in front of me, left the room a couple of times to get things. The spa services did not match with the hotel one bit.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is absolutely beautiful and tastefully furnished. We were give the choice between a room in the main building or one across the road and can confirm that both were lovely. The service was exceptional throughout and the breakfast very tasty.
Cons: Fab stay, but if I had to criticise one thing it would be the mattress; it was very soft, probably at the end of its use. Also, there was a small damp patch on the wall but in a tropical climate this is a constant battle. However everything else more than made up for it.

Cons: Weak, unreliable wifi connection. No hot water in room. Poor quality towels.

7.0 Good
Pros: We stay at Galle Fort hotel once or twice a year. The Loft suites are very comfortable for one or two people and a child. The hotel is small and private with a beautiful bar, good communal space, and lovely pool.
Cons: We’ve been coming for years - management has recently changed and it’s reflected in the staff - just not quite as professional as before. I hope it’s adjustment issues and not the harbinger of a general decline.
