Mahaweli Reach Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a beautiful hotel, with well appointed facilities & a particularly lovely spa area. We did arrive a little late, but the buffet was very tired by 9pm, so I canโ€™t say we really enjoyed our food.

Booked two rooms for three nights arriving on 26 December 2017. Upon arrival it appeared that the hotel had erroneously booked four rooms for three nights. Inspite of our proof of one booking only the hotel debited our Amex card for the second and incorrect booking. Only after two months and with the assistance of and America Express the hotel partly corrected their error. No excuses, nothing. A place to avoid. Bad feeling, bad experience. Never again.

We stayed in a room with views to Mahaveli river and it was very nice. The room was huge for two people. The food was great and we enjoyed a breakfast in the boat. The staff is friendly and the breakfast in the boat is very recommendable. There is a pool area and its located jsut a few kilometers far from Kandy.

We group of 3 couples stayed in this hotel for two days from 2nd March. The hotel location is ok as it is on the bank of river. Rooms are spacious but it is old construction. But the service is lot to be desired, breakfast buffet quality is not good and most of the items were being served cold and no proper refill. Even in the dinner, quality of indian food was much below par. Overall, not a good choice to stay. There may be better options in Kandy.

The ambiance was wonderful. Delicious food and extra-ordinary customer services. Loved our stay in the presidential suite. Its perfect for a new couple or short family. The view and surrounding area is a big big plus

Mahaweli Reach, just 10 mins drive from Kandy World Heritage site. Location is the most amazing thing. You can have dinner by the River Terrace. The design and interior is more familiar to colonial architecture. Presidential Suite was lit ๐Ÿ˜ Food is so good. Recommended ๐Ÿ‘

Nice big rooms, well furnished but smelt damp. Very small wardrobe. Could be a bit noisy at times and not sure why, maybe something to do with the vents. Restaurant ok, nice by the pool. Pick wisely and stick to the local dishes which chef does very well. You must try the clay pot curry, very hot but delicious and served with amazing thandipan bread. Curd with palm treacle is a yummy treat too

We enjoyed our stay at Mahaweli Reach Hotel during our lovely stay in February 2018 on our third anniversary . It was convenient in terms of location, atmosphere, staff friendliness and hospitability. Also we loved the massage at the Spa..must do !

Wonderful stay, everything was perfect regards to desk ladies Srimali, Aspara, Hashini,, Dilakshan, and Chamari. They service was excellent and the politeness of the staff was first class, the grounds are well kept the pool was perfect,

Went for the dinner buffet and the food was awesome while the staff was excellent catered to our need perfectly, a must visit destination. Thanks harshi for her help in getting a reservation and awesome table.๐Ÿ˜
