        We absolutely loved our stay at Anilana Nilaveli Resort. The hotel and room were clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was fantastic and catered for Gluten Free. There are boats sitting on the beach outside the resort waiting to take you to Pigeon Island.

        Very relaxing”

        To be honest the food was really good. Really really good. In love with the creamy pasta and the chocolate mousse . pay more attention before serving the butter and jams. the butter which you guys served for us was not so good. and for the morning breakfast bread boul add more buns and try to serve some sorta cheese. The rooms, it was good but not excellent because they have not served milk or the cream pkts in the room. at last i would like to say that Anilana Nilaveli is one of the most beautiful and relaxing place. The best place to relax i guess. Our family went there to stay only one night. even we have booked for one night but as according to situation of the hotel we extended the stay for 2 nights.

        Perfect getaway, fantastic staff and oasis of tranquility”

        We have just returned from Sri Lanka where we travelled around a bit and I had looked for somewhere that I thought would be relaxing with a bit of style for the final days. Anilani Nilaveli Resort was the perfect choice. The staff were wonderful, they could not do more to make our stay perfect. As it is right at the start of the season, the hotel was very quiet which meant that the breakfast and dinner buffets were usually not available, but the staff made sure that we still had plenty of choice and were very happy with everything. The hotel is very beautiful and if you are looking for a tranquil get away right on the beach, this is perfect. We were feeling very lazy so mainly read by the pool, went swimming in the sea, did some jet skiing and a fantastic snorkelling trip to Pigeon Island. I would not hesitate to return again and was sad to leave it behind. The food was very high quality, the rooms were large and beautifully designed.

        Best on offer..... and we looked around in person too!”

        After reading many reviews and doing our research we were a bit hesitant after reading some reviews that pointed out this hotel is a 'concrete block.' Like all reviews, you have to sift through them all and find a happy medium; therefore, we went for it. And how thrilled are we that we did. The hospitality is warm, sincere and authentic. Roy (Head of F&B) was sensational. Do strike up a conversation with him and learn more about the Sri Lankan customs, culture and food. The beach is rustic and unassuming. Yes, there is some debris and plastic washed up, where in the world isn't there. Don't let this get in the way of taking a swim in the green clear waters, with rolling waves...There are two large pools, ideal for families and kids. Which was perfect for us as it prevented kids running riot around the beach lounges on the sand. Normally resorts can charge outrages prices for food and drinks as they have you in there snare. At Anilana, we were shocked at how reasonable the prices are!
