Ranweli Holiday Village is a beautiful resort situated on an island of its own. The experience is unique because tourists get to experience the beauty of Negombo's beaches and the privacy of being on a secluded little island. Rooms are cozy and villa style. Friendly staff and good food. No complaints. Highly recommended!

Located in awesome place where surrounded by both river and sea. It's very good nature friendly hotel with nice private beach. Great Pool and entertainment room with pool & TT table. Only two negative points, food and the service in the restaurant.

We stayed in a standard sea facing bungalow, room was good with sea view, powerful air con and a big bed and a nicely fitted out bathroom. Food was fine, I like the restaurant looking out to the sea. Service from reception was very attentive. Bar area to sit at night comfy. Its tranquil because its isolated, so nowhere busy...

This was 3 days relaxing at the end of a tour. It had a basic pool but not much else to do. Rooms comfortable and pleasant. Restaurant food and service was just about OK. It is pretty remote so not easy to visit any local areas. Unfortunately weather was not great so maybe that coloured our view.

This is an amazing holiday retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of hectic traffic, fumes and noise of this beautiful island of Sri Lanka. To get to the hotel we crossed on a punt then taken along beautiful serene and tranquil paths to our room. It was heaven on earth for the week we were there. Hotel, staff and...

We booked through virgin holidays from 26th December- 3rd January and had a wonderful time. We are a fun, close-knit family so generally have fun wherever we go. BEWARE- WINE IS NOT INCLUDED IN ALL-INCLUSIVE. We love wine, so this meant we had a hefty room bill when we left. They have to import all wine which is why it...

The hotel setting is great... The management however will try to tap into your pocket for anything they could get their hands on. Extra charges will be invented..On my checkout I was told to pay an extra amount not mentioned in check in. The manager Mr Senaka said its because of early check in.. When I said it was pre-approved...
