        Not worth the money”

        To be honest, this resort seemed ideal until we got there. Actually before we got there because they forgot to pick us up at the airport... also the staff was not helpful. They said their was a doctor on sight to evaluate you for free and let you know what type of massage to get or oils to use, etc. and when we booked our free consult he was very rude and said since we are only staying 2 nights it wasn’t worth for him. Soooo we went somewhere else for our massages. We wanted to get a Tuk tuk (taxi) and since we have been traveling around Sri Lanka and the Maldives for 3 weeks prior, we knew what the price should be, but when the hotel tried helping us they upcharged us by a ton so we ended up walking and grabbing our own. This was one of the places we chose to stay on our anniversary, so needless to say, not going to stay again. We love Sri Lanka though! And to give them some positive feedback the rooms were very spacious, neat and clean.

        Nice place - away from everything”

        We stayed here the first night after we arrived in Sri Lanka. Were looking for a place convenient to the airport and not right at the beach of Negombo, which we were told can be quite disappointing, when you're used to other beach resorts in Southern/South East Asia. So Karuankarala seemd to be quite a good choice, located a bit inland right at a little river. The entire place is indeed very beautifully set up and maintained. The cottages are really nice and well equipped and we had a very pleasant stay here, indeed for a night. Should you consider a longer stay, though, be advised that there's not a lot around it. Staying there for a longer Ayurveda treatment seems perfect, though! When we stayed there, the place was almost completely deserted with just a few Japanese female travellers who seemed to enjoy their Ayurveda treatments in the complete harmony and peacfulness of the place.

        Other than everything I like for its cleanliness and the concept. ”

        This is fantastic and romantic resort. Business people like us can re-set the stressful mind once stay in this resort. Ayurvada treatment, Yoga and evening meditation very very good for all kind of human. I could start work today very freshly after resort treatment. Also this Cleanliness I never saw in another hotel in Sri Lanka. Also saw many honeymoon cupolas in the resort taking photos finding locations like Bollywood.... Good staff, Good food, Good location, also can do good fishing too...

        Good location by the river and near the airport. Facilities are very good and so are the staff. The only downside is the train track that passes the resort so it gets rather noisy at times.

        Its amazing. This is the first hotel I stayed in Sri Lanka with clean wash-let. Separate shower, very good smell, If I tell shortly its look like a Japanese standard hotel. If some one need to stay in Japanese stranded hotel in Sri Lanka I recommend with full confidence. In the hotel had huge Ayurveda hospital, Yoga and meditation studio and more than 7 spa rooms. Doctor consultancy also perfect. Other than everything the river next to the hotel is gave us new breath. Within 5 minute can go to beach by boat. When we going to hotel it took around 45 minute from the air port as it was heavy traffic. But when returning it take only 25 minute to air port from hotel. Mostly young staff always with smile. I love this place...

        空港から近く、シーギリヤなどの観光地に行く途中にあるので便利だなと思いました。旅行に行くとトイレが汚くて不快な思いをすることも多いのですが、このホテルのトイレには日本製のウォシュレットがついていて清潔で驚きました。本格的なアーユルヴェーダのトリートメントは初めてでしたが、本当に気持ちよくて頭もすっきりしました。緑に囲まれた川沿いのコテージで非日常の時間を満喫することができました。次回は家族でゆっくりと滞在したいです。

        スリランカ式のホテルです。”

        日本の会社なので、日本式を勝手に期待していたのですが、あくまでスリランカの宿。スリランカ式にしては、ウォシュレットや歯ブラシがあったり、清潔で不自由はないというところ。スタンダードコテージに泊まりましたが、設備的には日本のビジネスホテルレベルという感じ。スタッフの教育が行き届いているし、親切なので気軽に話せました。ロケーション的にも奥まったところにあって静かだし、リラックスして過ごせました。
