Review by 566tinib

We have been to two other resorts of the same price range on our trip and Mahaweli fell of the back.

Although the hotel was pretty empty we got a room right next to a family with a young kid that was noisy throughout the stay.

The aircon problem we had didn't get fixed although we had three staff trying.

NO veggi dinner choice on a set 5 course menu apart from fried rice and pasta and the waiter seemed very new and overstrained. At breakfast we had to go and look for a waiter to serve us and then waited 30 min !!! For some fruits and scrambled egg, which seemed like they used one egg only for each portion.

We were glad to only have booked one night and changed hotels after that.

It seems like it used to be a good hotel in the past but now during covid times they don't live up to the standard that other hotels manage to hold even in these difficult times.

Underrated and slightly outdated hotel....

Review by bbtrees

This is a great place to stay. The hotel is very close to the Kandy city, and right next to the mahaweli river. The staff were ultra friendly, and the food was nice...

The rooms are really spacious and the amenities in general were very good. The hotel seems for some reason stuck in the nineties, and seemse to not have kept up with the times. It's a place with great potential and they could do a lot more to make more of the beautiful riverside vistas the hotel offers..

Best food in the area and awesome service!

Review by dbeligala Bowling Green, Ohio

I have ordered several times from Mahaweli Reach and we love the food. Delicious, healthy and less oily. The service is on time, freindly and very convenient...

Mr. Nayanajith Jayamal is doing a wonderful service and he will process an order with just a single Whatsapp message. Moreover, we can have the food packaged as per our need by request. Highly recommended.
