Pros: The hotel has prime location on Pasikuda beach and entrance is very impressive when arriving. Staff are very courteous and even when we had a slight issue with our room, they couldn’t do enough to rectify and compensate us. The food on the a la carte menu and evening buffet are very delicious and represent good value for money. Overall, an excellent hotel with great rooms, service and facilities.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were incredibly friendly and the room was fantastic, the hotel is situated right on a fantastic beach and the pool is lovely too. Beach bar and restaurant give good options for food and drinks throughout the day.
Cons: Few slight issues throughout our stay. We found the staff to be incredibly friendly however we felt service was slow throughout the stay, sometimes waiting for up to 20 minutes for two drinks. We paid for the all inclusive package however it was very limited in terms of the food and cocktails available and this was not communicated to us properly beforehand.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent and the location was good
Cons: nothing. everything was perfect. looking forward to coming back
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The best property location in Pasikuda. Friendly staff excellent food choice. Large rooms very conferable. A must mentioned about the Sea food platter. Devine!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Beach Studio was very spacious and comfortable, as was the bed/pillows. The grounds and white sandy beach at the hotel were beautiful. A nice large pool with comfortable sun loungers. The beach bar/restaurant did nice lunch time snacks and great cocktails. The staff throughout the complex were very friendly, from the gardeners to the staff at reception, who were very quick at responding to any queries or finding out information you requested.
Cons: Noise of people above in the pool when you are in the spa.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I went to Uga bay with raised expectations from that previous stay with a hotel in the Uga chain and they did the magic again to treat us well above expectations. Seamless service ensured smooth transactions from check in to check out. Food and drinks were refreshingly fresh, made with attention and served with passion. Family friendly environment will ease the burden on any traveler with kids, specially if you are foreign to Sri Lanka. Special thanks to Head Chef and Mr. Chinthaka for warn hospitality extended to us.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved my stay at Uga, superb quality and pampering experience. I loved my room, the beach was super clean, calm, and nice, and the food was amazing. Breakfast menu isn't very big, so when I requested something extra my requests were efficiently met. Overall, it's a great value for money, thank you Uga team!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Best beach and hotel in Kalkudah. Ty the big and awesome Curry a la card and skip the expansive buffet. Take a beach Studio with a terrace, not the more expansive Ocean Studio, which is exactly the same size but has only a balcony.
Cons: Although Sri Lanka is quiet affordable for us Europeans, Uga Bay chared for staffing on EVERY bill, not to forget the two extra taxes you have to pay on top.

Pros: Food was better than a five star in colombo. location , rooms, pool, was perfectly done And the staff was so friendly caring and pleasant.
Cons: Ive been to so many places in pasikuda anantaya resort was nothing to unlike about.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff is incredibly kind and the room is wonderfully designed and very clean. The pool is cleaned round the clock as well as the beach. Having seen the neighboring accommodations this one stands way above the rest. Half-board is plenty enough food and you get a lot of local food now too (following past negative reviews I guess - seems like they listen to feedback constructively).
Cons: We didn't mind it so much but there are many crows in the area and they can get loud (this would apply to any hotel). In our case we also had a large group of people which were noisy late in the night - the house didn't seem to do anything about it - we weren't happy about it.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The resort is lovely, the beach and swimming pool area are beautiful. It’s an amazing place to spend a few days and really relax.
Cons: The music at the pool bar - same music every day and didn’t fit with the relaxing vibe the rest of the resort had!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room was big and so confortable. Swimming pool was huge and you were in front of the beach
Cons: No public transport to arrive. You need to take a tuktuk from valaichchena

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved the design of this beachfront resort. Casual luxury on a beautiful sandy beach! For the full experience, try for the upgraded Oceanview Suite. It's nice to fall out of bed for an sunrise ocean swim, and shore walk, to watch the night fisherman bring their boats in onto the sand. The pool is always ready for you and the restaurant has great food choices. Also, I had a great massage in their Spa.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely stunning hotel, The pool was to die for. Located right on the beach. Our room was stunning. The bathroom huge. Breakfast plentiful. High praise to the staff. They were so welcoming and friendly. A real credit to the hotel.
Cons: Nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The facilities of the hotel, rooms, shower, cleanliness, swimming pool, are really 5-star. Bed is very comfortable. Location; very quiet and relaxing with breathtaking views.
Cons: We booked a private ocean suite, but were disappointed when we discovered that the privacy is a bit limited: you share it with other 3 rooms, including the private pool. Bitter-sweet feeling when we found out that we (foreigners) were practically financing the accommodation of the locals: locals pay much less for the same thing. The food, breakfast and dinner, is far from being 5-star quality.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is absolutely ideal for a relaxing holiday and service is almost perfect.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful pool, rooms, beach etc... A very luxurious place. It is not a big resort so it never felt really busy or crowded.
Cons: There was a problem with them overbooking. Instead we were put in a lower standard hotel for a night, then also given free spa treatments... But we would have much prefered to just stay at the hotel all 3 nights like we booked. The first day or so there was no hot water in our room- not something you expect when you pay so much for a room! They also know you're a captive audience with few restaurants or bars around so food/ drimk at the hotel is pricey.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing, so attentive and helpful. Spa is very good and a reasonable price. The location is fantastic, on a beautiful bit of beach with a lovely (almost) infinity pool. Rooms are comfortable and we'll furnished with a huge bathroom. Overall Maalu Maalu is a great place to spend a few days.
Cons: The food is average. It's expensive for what it is but that's the nature of this sort of hotel I suppose. Also we never had any hot water but it was so hot it didn't really matter to us too much. They have an extensive wine list but only one or two bottles of each so they ran out of our choice (within our price range) very quickly. Better to do a few and have good stocks of them.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The resort property executes its theme thoroughly and is both cute and comfortable. The large pool in the center of the property is wonderful, the chairs plentiful in the off-season (we visited early September) and the ocean serene and easy to swim in. If we're in this part of Sri Lanka again we'd absolutely consider a return visit to Maalu Maalu.
Cons: The breakfast was nice and if we stayed again we'd include it, but the a la carte menu was rather mediocre. Luckily there's a few really nice kitchens immediately adjacent to this property and you have plenty of food choice. The local area around the resorts here is modest and you'll have an adventure finding some supplies you may be looking for. We had an minor issue with an air conditioner stopping working twice but it wasn't a major issue and the site's service team were very quick to make repairs.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic and so helpful. After an issue on the first night with dinner (in mitigation we had just had a major storm) they couldn't do enough to make up for it. Mr Tennekoon (Head Chef) put on a lovely pre dinner cocktail party the next evening with superb finger food ( the mini pizza's with a little Sri Lankan spice were a big favourite). The beachfront location was excellent and the Spa very good. Dilshan at the front desk was a star whenever we had any questions or requests. The waiters also were cheering for England in the Cricket World Cup final with us. which made for some fun one evening.
Cons: Could have a little more light in the bar area as it was difficult to see when we were playing cards. Also the rooms could have had a little more light in them as well.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic hotel Fantastic staff Fantastic location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: happily spent the holiday in that beautiful hotel...the setting was perfect ..beautiful cottages clean n friendly environment ..wow the pool was perrrrrfect ...good is also good....
Cons: the colours of the chairs at the restaurant..the black chairs gives a dull n unclean look to the restaurant..it makes the place more n more darker when comparing with the surrounding.. ...if it is white with blue cusions or white chairs with black cusions it will add more beauty to the restaurant and will be more radiend

Pros: location and building was excellent worth for the money reception staff was very nice and helpful
Cons: we ordered meals for the room. It was not brought. after 45 minutes we reminded the staff. Then only they said no enough staff and brought food to room. after finishing we inform restaurant staff to collect empty plates. they did not come. we had to hand over the plates to restaurant to keep our room smelling free. if no sufficient staff was the problem , we could go to restaurant and bring ourselves and return back after finishing ourselves. But restaurant staff and coordinator did not respect the feeling of guests.
7.9 Good
Pros: The half board food was really good with a great variety of choice. The location on the gorgeous beach was great. The staff were friendly and attentive.

7.9 Good
Pros: Breakfast selection was good. Room tidied twice a day and each night beds were turned down. Very peacefull location right on the beach. Nice swimming pool.
Cons: Not enough sunbeds. Some restaurant staff not very attentive. Ceiling inside the restaurant area extremely grubby.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The whole resort is beautiful. You’ve got the beach more or less for yourself and enough space and hammocks to please everyone. The rooms are nice, the beds are very comfy and everything is very clean!! All the employees are also really nice and try to comfort you. Breakfast is also really nice and I would say worth the price.
Cons: The dinner (buffet) has quite a variety of food and everything is ok. But it’s nothing special. We ate way better for less money so I would say it’s not worth the price. Though you don’t get many options around. The cocktails we ordered were also quite small and not good. Same for the massage. I can really not recommend it. Overall we still enjoyed our stay but would just not book any extras if not necessary.

Cons: The only problem was the beach. While the hotel cleaned their part of the beach the rest of it was littered in plastic. The litter would have drifted in on the current and not a reflection of the hotel or its cleanliness. We were told that they recognised the problem and the staff were going to spend the day cleaning it.
7.1 Good
Pros: We got upgraded by the manager and that made the difference. the rooms were very nice but the bath water was cold.
Cons: Beach is beautiful but too many rubbish.

Amaya Beach - Kalkudah - Building

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Amaya Beach in Valachchenai, you'll be 0.1 mi (0.2 km) from Pasikuda Beach and 13.2 mi (21.3 km) from Batticaloa Lagoon. Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Event facilities at this resort consist of a conference center and a meeting room. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free valet parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms, staff and cleanliness.
Cons: The WiFi wasn’t so good.
6.7 Good
Pros: Not much. The a la carte menu was OK and the restaurant staff very nice. Otherwise I was not at all satisfied with this hotel for reasons below. This is a five star hotel supposedly and though the rooms are nice and it looks very swish in the lobby and corridors, it does not actually live up to its rating. I have stayed in equally nice rooms for much less.
Cons: 1. The very poor English on reception. 2. The wifi that infuriatingly changed passwords constantly and which was virtually unobtainable in my room on the second floor (1209) 3.The entire theme of the hotel is cubism. Everything is square built which might look very nice but I defy you to sit comfortably in a square chair. The bedroom has a huge window into the bathroom for some unknown reason, and though there is a door on the toilet itself, it is made of GLASS! Unbelievable. Also the glass shower door has a very heavy square stainless steel handle on the inside. I dread to think what would happen if you were to slip in the shower and hit your head on the 90 degree corner. 4. The swimming pool is not designed for adults who wish to have a decent swim. It is deep at both ends but very shallow in the middle and a swimmer just hits their feet on the bottom trying to swim the full length. I therefore spent my entire four days stay at Passi Villa next door. I knew from two years ago they have an excellent pool and for a small fee I was able to enjoy a decent swim. 5. THE PRICE !!! When I booked this hotel maybe a month before arrival, it was about 18,000 rupees per night. I booked it thinking I was getting five star facilities for a few days rest on the coast. WRONG! I was totally dissatisfied with the place but even worse was to come. Before I checked out, I looked online at the current price per night and it was 9,500 rupees, or nearly half what I paid. I tried to question this disparity with front desk staff but they were adamant that as I had booked at the higher price, that is what I should pay, which I did reluctantly. I therefore now request for the GM to contact me on gordonclarke3@virginmedia.com to explain to me exactly why I paid double and what I got for my money and give me a refund.. It is an absolute disgrace that prices are manipulated like this. I feel I was robbed.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The overall impression is minimalist, but palatial. Amaya has everything you would expect to find in an upmarket resort: large pool, excellent cafes and restaurant, gym, private beach. The rooms have all mod cons and are spacious. The food comes in the form of a sumptuous buffet with a huge selection of foods and some tasty Sri Lankan specialities. The staff are ultra-friendly and always ready for a chat or a laugh, creating the perfect resort atmosphere.
Cons: Only two negative aspects: you cannot go into the water at the private beach as it is very shallow and under the surface there are sharp rocks. The pool is too shallow which makes it very warm.

Pros: “The Calm Resort and Spa” name describes the quality of the hotel. We only stayed 2 nights there. We should stay 5 or 6 nights absolutely calm environment at the beach front Pasikudha. It is good to see early morning sunrises from the room. The sea also calm, Green flag is on all the time. It is safer to have a sea bath any time of the day. Special thank goes to Palitha, the swimming pool supervisor who look after us whole day when we were at the beach. The hotel location, comfort, safety, quality of the food and the hospitality offers by the staff is excellent. Thanks for the Browns Group Ltd [Ceylon] to managing the resort in higher slandered.

The hotel is located just in front of the beach with an amazing pool facing it. Even though there is not much variety in the food proposed a la carte, the prepared food tastes amazing, especially the seafood grill they prepared! I loved it! The ambiance is peacefull and very relaxing especially for someone who is looking to take a break from a busy life in Colombo. The spa they propose are of great choice and the therapist is very good. I will definitely come back for sure.
Cons: My only regret is not having hammocks in the beach for hammock lovers like me. But this doesn't change in anyway in the service they propose
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, beautiful pool and instalations
Cons: Food quality was REALLY expensive for what it was: beef was 3 out of 10, and we payed 15USD for the buffet and 60USD per room night, doesn't make sense at all, but we really enjoyed the instalations .

Pros: Absolutely beautiful location, can’t compliment it enough. You pretty much have a whole beach to yourself, save a few cows! The staff were so helpful efficient, great service. Rooms are massive with a little kitchen and bathroom, all face the sea. Very comfy beds.
Cons: Maybe the food could have been a little better but was still nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A paradisaical hotel in front of the beach. The place is really nice and so quiet. I think there are in total only 8 rooms so you often feel like you have the entire place for yourself ! Staff is always prepared to help you and food at the hotel restaurant was absolutely amazing.
Cons: Wifi wasn't working really good (but it was the same in all the hotels on the East Coast so maybe normal...)
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is fantastic - really needs to be emphasised. Away from the busy Pasikudah beach, it sits almost alone on a long stretch of unblemished coastline visited primarily by fishers and crows. Long 10km walks on the beaches, seeing almost no one. The staff were very friendly - but do need a little more training in hotel and service skills. Food was excellent - thanks to the cook.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice beach and big pool. Our kids loved that they had the 2nd floor for themselves.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Way better than the photos give it credit. Perfect place to celebrate my birthday. Cows on the beach Exceptionally priced
Cons: Nothing
5.0 Okay
Pros: The hotel has good facilities and very good rooms. Fabulous environment to spend your vacation.
Cons: I booked two double rooms twin. But when get it n to the room only I realized that they have arranged a double and a single room. When I complaint it took almost 1 1/2 hours for the staff to get another bed but it was also a bunker bed. One of my kids volunteered to sleep on that but felt really sad.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The lovely quiet beach not busy & pretentious like Passikuda, pretty much had it to ourselves. Lovely pool, spacious room, nice & quiet due to only 8 rooms. Beds were very comfortable, lovely balcony & view.
Cons: Only non-locals staying there. Built by army & therefore army staff get discounts. Staff very nice but have very little English except the lady at reception who was very pleasant and helpful. Menu at the restaurant very limited, ate out quite a lot.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The photo's online do not do this hotel justice, such a beautiful landscape & location. My room was enormous, amazing creature comforts, exceptionally clean & comfortable, great shower. Great huge swimming pool, delicious food from the restaurant, the manger is full of wonderful and helpful information.
Cons: There wasn't too many options for food (cafes / restaurants) around the area, so you had to stay at the hotel and eat from the buffet. Most of the staff, could not understand English and if you needed anything you had to try and find them hiding in the air-conditioning area of back of restaurant, it would have been great if they came out to the pool or beach area and offered drinks or food / service.... The diving centre that sits along the property, the staff were a little over friendly.
