10/10 Exceptional

Best hotel I've stayed in period. The photos do not do the Sandhya justice. If you're looking for a quiet beach resort like experience with exceptional service, this is the place. Due to the lower number of rooms compared to other resorts on the coastline, it's much more quiet allowing you ample time to relax and recharge. The staff at the Sandhya have created a seamless relaxation experience for city goers like myself to tune out completely. With gentle waves basically at your doorstep and amazing food & drink menu, I couldn't recommend staying here enough. Definitely on my list to revisit in the future,

Hotel is very nice, rooms are big and clean, and breakfast is delicious. Very quiet perfect for couples. If you looking to surf Infront of the hotels and more dining options around you, this spot will not fit.

A truly unique stay
I came back to Sri Lanka for the first time since the pandemic looking for a place to relax and base myself. The photos of Sandhya looked amazing (note - somehow better in real life) so I booked 7 nights. I was not expecting the simplicity and luxury I found and, with the small number of rooms, equal parts private and communal. I describe this as a modern guesthouse, coupled with barefoot luxury overlooking a pristine surf beach in the Southern District. Dan and his team do a great job making everyone comfortable, well fed and hydrated! The menu is tight but considered, and enough to keep me interested for the duration of my stay. There are a couple of good local places within a few minutes walk if you so wish. By good fortune I met the owner as he passed through on a visit. I always enjoy meeting the person behind the property, and Alan was a pleasure. Will I be back? Absolutely. The sheer easiness of all this space offers makes it a no-brainer.

6/10 Good

The property was all good except the fact that the common areas didn’t have any fan or AC coverage and it was super hot to sit in any of those areas. There was no phones or any communication channel to call the helper staff from the room and you were expected to go around the property looking for a staff.

I originally booked in for two nights at The Sandhya—I was sold by the reviews of the hotel but wasn't sure about the beach as some reviews I read said it was too close to the highway. From the moment I arrived, I fell in love with this property and the beach. Everything is done so thoughtfully at The Sandhya—from the awesome service and interior design to the location, and delicious food. The beach is super chill and has a really nice laid-back vibe—the road wasn't an issue at all and the beach is great for walking, swimming, and surfing. My room (#3) was awesome - the view is incredible, it's spotless and the bed and linens are very comfortable. Water is provided and turn-down service is offered each evening. The staff really goes above and beyond while you are staying there and since it's a boutique hotel you really feel like you're being taken care of. I had booked 4 nights in Weligama afterward but cut the stay short to return to The Sandhya! Upon my return, the staff made me an amazing Sri Lankan dinner and when I checked out they gave me a Christmas gift! Super sweet! Breakfast was included in my stay and it was awesome: fruit juice, fresh fruit, toast + jam, and your choice of breakfast with coffee/tea. I also ate dinner there several times and the food was always delicious, well-presented and the service was impeccable! I can't wait to return to The Sandhya and highly recommend it!

Great location, on a beautiful beach. The hotel and rooms have a real ‘wow’ factor about them. Great views from the rooms. Very relaxing environment, nice pool, great food and exceptional service in a boutique style hotel.

We loved the hotel so much that we extended our stay from the originally booked 3 nights to 10 nights. The staff were beyond wonderful and we felt relaxed and "at home" in the environment. I had not experienced a boutique hotel yet in my travels and after staying at the Sandhya, a boutique hotel would be my first choice. The intimate, relaxed environment was a nice change from the typical large resort. The hotel's design, décor and attention to detail were exceptional, sort of a modern minimalist environment, yet with everything you need. And, you cant beat waking up with full ocean views right out your patio! Wonderful resort, would absolutely recommend and would definitely visit again!
