Extremely misleading photos
We booked three rooms, paid high for them. All three had problems; the resort is nothing like the photos. Room 1: Extremely poor lighting. Room was on ground floor, bathroom window did not shut,anyone walking by could watch you. There was no phone(!)in the room. Room 2: Water dripped outside this room from an unknown source, which made the front entry slippery and dangerous—staff did nothing about the drip. There was no hot water in all bathrooms—just barely lukewarm, and staff said, that’s it. Room 3: HUGE amount of ants on bathroom countertop; staff came and sprayed and left all the dead bodies right on the countertop (see photos). The next morning, there were a gazillion live ants on the mirror. Staff told us, this was ‘Sri Lanka’ and we had to expect ants and critters in our rooms. NO Wifi. We had to use our phones as hotspots all the time. We found two cockroaches on our beds. All the furniture was old and scratched. No shutters on bathroom window and wind raged, so the bathroom door, which did not shut properly banged incessantly. Same with the room upstairs, so we were kept awake by two doors banging all night long. Toilet did not work. Pool was filthy, with sand and debris in it.(see photo)And, pool and hot tub was cold at night.The hot tub does not work AT ALL, staff said it was not a hot tub but a ‘jacuzzi’ so no heat. We checked out the next day. A terrible experience at Sundaras Resort & Spa; absolutely do NOT recommend this place.

Vacation in Dambulla
A hotel that has a great location, many things to explore in the area. The hotel has a new swimming pool and a very cool pool bar where you can hang out and enjoy the nice music. Be sure to go to an elephant safari and also to get a Ayurvedic massage. Very good service and super friendly staff!

Good value for money
Nice resort with clean swimming pool. There is a spa but we did not use it and so cannot comment. The place is lush and so there are some bugs which is to be expected. The place is still being renovated and so the rough finishing is evident. It is a bit rustic. The walk to the rooms is out in the open and so if it rains, it can be a problem. The restaurant is very clean with only the occasional fly, which is amazing considering almost all other establishments seem to have a swarm of flies everywhere including on the food! The breakfast and dinner were good. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful.

Has great potential
Stayed for a 2 days whilst exploring the ancient cities, was a good base. Very close to the Cave and Golden Temple. The room was very clean and the first of house staff were very accommodating, offering flexible tours (to Sigiria). Unfortunately, during our stay, they gutted out the pool and only offered some guest the opportunity to go to another hotel to enjoy the pool. The food was buffet type, nothing to shout about. This place has great potential.
