2/10 Poor

Charged in full but not available
The hotel accepted my booking on this site for two nights, and I was charged in full but when we got to the hotel we were told that it is a quarantine hotel and they don’t accept bookings and that the listing was a mistake. They said they will refund in full but it still has not been processed and I have not heard from them at all. It has now been 4 days. The hotel still shows availability here even though they are not able to accept bookings. The phone number listed here and on their website is not working. We called to confirm the reservation before driving there but of course couldn’t get through. I also emailed them two days before the date we reserved but didn’t get a response.

2/10 Poor

Room had beautiful ocean view. That was the only good thing about our stay. Items in the room weren’t working (phone, tv was freezing, a/c was making a noise). We had to go down to to ask for additional towels several times as there weren’t enough. Poor minimal a la carte menu selection. Food was served cold and had to ask for it to be heated. Service was very slow and had to ask for things repeatedly.

The reception desk staff were zero customer oriented; busy with themselves vs attending customers. Lights were off every hour; TV was not working; etc etc

10/10 Exceptional

Kaya Health Resort is amazing. The facilities are gorgeous and well maintained, and the staff could not have been friendlier. I would recommend this to anyone I know, especially if you are interested in taking advantage of their extensive health services. One thing I would note is that you will be disappointed if you are expecting a beach, since Kaya is located next to a natural reef that prevents anyone from entering the water to swim. It is a beautiful location, and you should absolutely prepare for picturesque views, but do not expect to swim in the ocean. But don't worry, they have an infinity pool overlooking the water.

Good place to relax near the airport
Friendly staff who were falling over themselves to look after us. Waves breaking over the reef's edge meant that there was a gentle roar, which we found relaxing, and a dampness from the spray covering the external furniture, which didn't bother us.

4/10 Fair

The room had a nice view. But there were a few things that were dirty. Some of the robes had holes in them. Room service was not all that. They came to clean the room but didn't leave any towels. I had to remind them. There was a problem with our room key. It wasn't fixed until the next day because I had to remind them. The only kudos I can give is to Anthony. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our experience in Sri Lanka was good

Quiet hotel by the remote non-swimming beach
Hotel is beautifully designed but not well maintained. Beach is clean and quiet but by the edge of a reef and very dangerous for swimming, only good for walking. Hotel staffs are friendly but service is terrible. We stayed for 3 days and it took more than a day to get internet, TV and the safe to work. We paid for delux room and got standard room. We had to complain to get the correct room. The last day we spent by to pool and there was lots of local children using the adult pool, they were screening for hours and the pool staffs didn't do anything about it. We left and went back to our room and still heard the children carried on screeming. A comfortable hotel to stay perhaps during the weekdays.

A getaway vaca
Staff nice and helpful and welcoming. Room: nice was upgraded at low cost but attention to detail lacks. Room restroom lacks privacy. Wifi and tv did not work till last day. Wifi when connect was slow or locked so don't depend on it. Beach is not for swimming must go elsewhere. If wanna enjoy beach not place to be
