The resort is rather far from the main attractions in Sri Lanka, so probably unsuitable for a long holiday unless you just want to lie around on the beach, but it is close to the airport and ideal for the first or last few days of a tour. The housing units are detached and spread around the resort. Some are...

WOW!! What an amazing place! We chose Ranweli as our honeymoon resort... no regrets! The food, service, people, location, cleanliness were all perfect... The ferry ride across the river adds to the feel that you are truly on holiday and away from any cares or worries. As you step out of your bungalow, the beach stretches for over 1 mile,...
