Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa

Very wonderful hotel with great and quiet location. Mostly ate at the buffé, it was well prepared and had different themes every day. Our room boy Sugath was extremely nice, helpful and always smiling. His beautiful creations with towels and fresh flowers was someting to look forward to every day when coming back from the pool.

Lovely relaxing break with friendly staff

Bristol, United Kingdom

Came to Sri Lanka for a brief break as work and time stopped us going much further afield. Lovely setting for the hotel between the river and beach, lovely pool. Not a totally quiet hotel as the pool.is ideal for children but I felt there was a good balance between guests. The beach is just beyond the hotel and whilst the currents are strong as long as you stay easily within your depth you should be fine, but be careful. We ate mainly in the buffet as the food and choice was always good, and the staff were always friendly and welcoming. The new Executive Chef Chris has only been here a short time and is keen to generate a friendly atmosphere and he leads from the front, a nice guy who will be an asset to this hotel. Didn't eat in the 360 but ate in the Thai which was tasty. Stayed in a pool room, 2017, which was at the quieter end of the pool. No issues at all. Took a day trip.down the coast to Galle, well worth it. In summary would I stay here again?, in a word 'yes'..
