We arrived at the hotel at night. The staff was friendly and the food wasn't bad. However the drinks and beverages at the bar were quite expensive. The rooms are comfortable and the view of the lake from the hotel is beautiful.

Watch the Windows. They are not secure. Two men entered my room through a locked window with sinister intention. After this I did not feel safe and the hotel and police did not care. Organised crime racket where people knew this was happening, I'm lucky I wasn't robbed and raped.

The setting is incredible and might have been a real good hotel at the start. Now there are clear signs of neglect. Avoid the lowest range of rooms. It is definitely a better function venue than a resident hotel.

I stayed at Centauria Lake Resort about 10 years back. At that time I was not impressed by its rooms, the service or the food. Yet, I realized that it had lot of potential, mainly because of its location bordering the scenic Chandrika Wewa (lake). When I visited Centurauria recently, I was pleasantly surprised to see a positive change to... More
