    Awesome Hotel , Awesome people :)”

    After doing my research online , I managed to book South Lake for short stay, from the entrance itself we been treated nicely, every single person works with awesome Sri Lankan smile and they are truly willing to help without been lazy, one thing made me realized that from the time of hotel construction to service everything is properly planned and design and facilities meet global hotel standards in many ways , you get proper warnings for hazards, hotel rooms contain almost every features and every detail is well designed, assume everything was done according to hotel compliance and I clearly noted the difference compare to typical design and proper compliance. when it come to food we got morning buffet and Ala crate for lunch & dinner, food selection is not huge but it contain all basic food types such as western, Asian, etc, at the moment they do not serve alcohol due to legal restrictions but the management told me that they have requested for licence and they will be getting it soon, hotel is not located near the beach but you can simply cross the main road and walk towards the beach in seconds, overall hotel is not just an ideal option for weekends, I was told they had number of long stay guests visiting the place, overall hotel do have all physical facilities and awesome people at work, we were so thankful to the staff who made our stay memorable.

    Could be better”

    Our 2 weeks in South Lake Resort was good but there was so much that could be much better. I’ll break down tips, themes of strength and areas for work we felt were important. TIPS - by snacks and water locally using a tuk tuk to go to Ahangama or Habaraduwa for no more than 300-400SLR - Head to Unawatuna 700-800SLR for cheap eats, affordable massages, fun nightlife and vibrant atmosphere. - Head to Midigama 700-800SLR to immerse yourself in culture and local life. STRENGTHS - Serene views from the pool and overall chilled atmosphere. - Rooms were spacious and cleaned well daily. - Staff were helpful and and responsive. IMPROVEMENTS - Menu was western and bland, the chef made us exquisite Sri Lankan cuisine on request but it needs to be on the menu. - Tuk Tuk drivers varied. If the hotel continue to recommend certain tuk tuks they must be open to feedback about them. - What’s on offer at the hotel. Things like cooking classes, themed evenings, arranged excursions.

    Awesome hotel and surroundings. Some staff are uninformed, room cleanliness needs improvement”

    One of the receptionist was very ignorant and did not know any info about the hotels facilities such as pub opening times or hotel excursions. The room was not cleaned properly (floor), the balcony was constantly wet with puddles because of a water leak. Other than that it was an excellent room(lake view room) and the environment was amazing.

    Sea, River, Pool & Large pond... wow!!”

    It was better than expected! Its a lovely, spacious place with comfy rooms and friendly staff. Chalets are build around a large man-made pond with fish and birds. It was very relaxing. The restaurant food was also very well priced.
