"Ranawara, like Sri Lanka itself, exceeded all of our lofty expectations. The place is quite simply magical. Beautifully put together, delicious food, a wild and wonderful beach, cricket every day with the charming guys who work there – we will be coming back again and again."
Ranawara is a stunning haven for relaxation. Once we arrived, there was no need to leave during the entire stay. We were a large group mixed with adults and teens and there was something for everyone. We spent a lot of time in the massive pool gazing out over the estate watching birds, peacocks and other wildlife while listening to the crashing waves. In addition to the cricket match with the staff, the teens enjoyed the cinema room with movies, video games and board games. The study provided a nice space for the girls studying for their upcoming exams. The huge outdoor living room on the first floor was our favorite place to watch the sunset and have predinner nibbles and drinks. The director organized massages for us in the spa room overlooking the estate grounds and they were sublime! The food was delicious! We had Western and Sri Lankan dishes and they were all wonderful. The chef was a master at utilizing local, fresh ingredients. For those that did want to venture out, the director arranged a trip to the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary which is very near the estate. There were other similar trips that could have been arranged nearby, however, who could be bothered to leave the doting staff and lovely surroundings.
The most wonderful place I have experienced ever. Outstanding views and stay friendly as if you are at home.
