Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Kalkudah

Reviewed 9 June 2015

Malu Malu was a place everyone was talking about. It was one of the first hotels to be put up on the east coast after the end of the war. We of course traveled in 2014 to Malu Malu. The rooms were above market rates and we booked a double on H/B basis with a pool. It was a disappointment because:

1. The pool was not private, it was shared with the adjoining room. This was not mentioned on their website.
2. The pool was not cleaned properly as a result we did not use it.
3. The rooms were supposed to have a rustic finish but it looked cheap. The room size was small however the bathroom was comparatively quite large.
4. There was no seafood on the menu although we were right next to the sea.

The only good thing was the dinner which was set up on the beach. We liked the ambiance with dimly lit lanterns.

It was really worth the long drive to the resort. The soothing music during the evening and the sunset was simply amazing with the white sandy beach. Food was mouth watering with a great selection of food.

The ambiance of the hotel suited the theme very well.

Long live Maalu Maalu!

After a long drive to get to the resort it was refreshing to be greeted with a cold towel and a smiley face! From the very first welcome to the last goodbye, the hospitality was unbelievable from the gardener to the resident manager!
I and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, mostly because of the attentive, obliging and very friendly staff and of course the tasty food! The room itself was spacious, especially the toilet layout. Housekeeping was impeccable.
The homely feeling and the warmth that spreads across the resort is very inviting and look forward to my next visit, hopefully in the very near future.

Room Tip: Book one of the very end rooms with direct sea view!

Really happy with the stay at maalu maalu. Specially the foods were delicious. The sea was really nice & calm. Staff at maalu maalu were very friendly & they supported any time we needed. Room was nice & the big stylish bathroom add more value to that. Only thing is they don't have the facilities to arrange water sports & they get support from near hotels. I suggest that they should have the facilities to do so (Coz they have the nice beach & calm sea). It was a great stay at maalu maalu & highly recomend.
