Roman Lake Ayurveda Resort has a prized location at the edge of the winding Maadhu Ganga. More like a villa than a hotel, Roman Lake Ayurveda Resort was designed by Sri Lankan architect Channa Daswatte who has provided spectacular river views from the living and dining areas and each bedroom. Interiors are modern with polished cement floors and hardwood furniture. Spacious living room opens out to the swimming pool and the river beyond: hours can be spent taking in the views and watching the wildlife in the gardens. Go on a boat ride along the river which is scattered with many small islands, or just relax by the pool. Roman Lake Ayurveda Resort can be booked per room or in its entirety. It is the sister property of Roman Beach, another small boutique hotel located in Hikkaduwa.
