Mahaweli Reach,


Price From : US $ 105.30


This original ancestral home of the Panabokke family has evolved over the years from a four-roomed guesthouse to the present 116-roomed luxury hotel. The family still manages and lives in the hotel itself, providing a personal touch and maintaining the Kandyan heritage. Mahaweli Reach is now a joint venture with the Universal Group, who own many beach resorts in the Maldives. The hotel continues to maintain an intriguing mix of aristocratic Kandyan style giving it a unique atmosphere – refined yet not too stuffy. Go on a boat ride along the Mahaweli river, indulge in a relaxing massage at the spa, learn to cook a traditional Sri Lankan meal or learn to drape the Kandyan sari. Mahaweli Reach is well prepared to host weddings and is also an ideal holiday getaway for families with children.
