    Went in for a day outing with a friend. 5 star customer service by the waiters and also the reception staff. Food was tasty and the portions are more than enough. Prices are also very reasonable. Garden, pool and rooms is very well maintained and cleaned. Rooms were slightly dated and no balcony but given the price paid nothing to complain. Food on the other hand was great. No MSG in the fried rice and their BBQ platter (mas kade) was superb.

    Such a filthy place. Recently had a family wedding and it was not up to expectations. Money swindlers who wants everything to be paid in advance and promises to fulfil our requirements but fails to do so. That manager who is incapable of doing anything is not worth mentioning. In terms of cleanliness, the main hall is stinking with leakage and poor air conditioning. It is as if they run a group of thieves. The management recommended someone for the wedding deco and that guy was also the same. They ruined the deco. We were disappointed with the poor deco. Please don't trust them and ruin your wedding day

    Doesn’t recommend this hotel for anyone who is intended to have their dream wedding, poor management and service, gave a very hard time during the wedding day, hygiene level is 0. Most of the chair covers weren’t clean, covered with fungus. Also the management itself suggested us a wedding decorator (called sihina) saying that he is the best person in town, he dint give us what we proposed, messed up the entire decoration. He is a scam what we went through our big day, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone for their big day, was very disappointed with their service.

    πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž My wedding was recently in this hotel. I can’t recommend this hotel for wedding functions. Because, management is very cunning and no flexibility at all. All the fairytales are before the advance payment done. Poor coordination during function. Changing rooms are not good quality 😑

    We had our wedding without a hitch at Saffron Beach Hotel on 10th July and want to leave a thanking note for the hotel crew's amazing job on the day. We were hunting for hotels in the coastal line and the glamorous banquet halls of Saffron caught our eyes. Plus they were spacious enough to cater our pax amount (250+). We had our first meeting with Mr. Susantha Gunawardane who supported us in planning the event. On the day Mr. Gunawardane and Mr. Dinesh Perera coordinated the event throughout ensuring that everything went to plan and made sure we & the guests were well looked after. Our function had a tight agenda, but the staff were on hand to help with every additional detail. Hotel management even went an extra mile to change the wall curtains in their hall upon our request, for which we are grateful. The buffet had been arranged nicely and kept running smoothly. Many guests were delighted how exceptional the food was, so our compliments to Chef Sampath & the kitchen team. Well done Team Saffron. Cheers!

    Perfect Venue with Delightful Food and Friendly Staff! We had the most enchanting wedding at Saffron Beach Hotel on the 23rd of July. It was an unforgettable experience that we will cherish forever. From start to finish, everything was absolutely flawless, thanks to the impeccable services provided by the hotel and its amazing staff. The first thing that struck us was the serene and calming surroundings of the hotel, with its beautiful beachfront location. The decision to have an outdoor poruwa was simply perfect, as it added a touch of elegance and romance to our special day. We cannot praise the banquet manager, Mr. Gunawardhena, enough for his exceptional hospitality and flawless arrangements. He went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our wedding was meticulously planned and executed. His friendly demeanor and attention to detail made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. Now, let's talk about the food - it was simply divine! Our guests raved about the delicious and sumptuous spread that was presented to them. From the starters to the main course and the delightful desserts, everything was prepared to perfection. The culinary team at Saffron Beach Hotel certainly knows how to impress! But the true highlight of our wedding was undoubtedly the warmth and friendliness of the entire staff. From the moment our guests arrived until the last dance of the night, the staff made sure everyone felt welcome and well taken care of. Their genuine smiles and helpful attitudes added a special touch to our celebrations. If you're looking for the perfect venue for your dream wedding, we wholeheartedly recommend Saffron Beach Hotel. With its serene surroundings, delectable food, and friendly staff, it truly is a hidden gem for those seeking an unforgettable wedding experience. Thank you, Saffron Beach Hotel, for making our special day so magical and for creating memories that will last a lifetime. We cannot wait to return for future celebrations!

    Need to improve reception hall staff. I participated function on ground floor right side hall. They need proper training about how to work when function starts. They bring cups even above heads. I see more and more.. Hall arrangement is ok, if above can improve..

    Situated near the Wadduwa beach with beautiful scenaries. Attended there for a wedding function. Spacious halls with good conditions. Food and desserts were great. Several halls are available for functions. Sea food restaurant and a pool are there. Clean washrooms. Ample spaces for parking.

    Worst hotel ever seen. Yesterday we went there to participate in one of our friends' wedding party. Management closed the buffet without any notice at 3.00 pm. Almost 20 people were unable to get the lunch because of that, and they were very rude when asked for foods. This kind of issue has to be changed, especially that GM guy doesn't know how to talk to customers.

    This place is good for family and office gatherings. Customer service is good..since they undergo with constructions you can't experience buffet facility. But you can order some of their authentic food which is worth the price. The garden area is maintained well.

    Visited this place for a wedding. Located next to the Wadduwa beach. Hotel surrounding is beautiful and elegant. Wedding hall was ok. Meal were on average quality and that may depends on the menu selected. Staff was friendly and supportive. They has sufficient parking space for visitors.

    DO NOT TAKE YOUR WEDDINGS HERE! PLEASE PLEASE BE AWARE! Saffron Hotel management and it's employees are running a scam on stealing wedding gifts of couples who get married there. If you like to have a wedding, please reconsider unless you don't care what happens the precious wedding gifts you receive from well-wishers!

    The best place to hang out with friends and loved ones for a nice quiet drink outside near the beach stretch with the wind on your face. The food is delicious and the staff is well equipped with knowledge.

  • 1/5 Nishan I J. 9 months ago on Google
    One of the worst dining experience. Waited around 1 Hr. Seated for a dinner with whole family. Management must be keen to cater a crowd which can manageble or have to inform prior to the dinners that they are unable to cater. Extremely sad and disappointed.

    We had chefs day gathering at saffron beach on the 29th and the event was a great success. Chef Dudly and the team have done an amazing job by setting up a excellent buffet to please the chefs. Dinesh and his team was also very cooperative and courteous and gave maximum support without any hesitation . The venue is fabulous for any occasion and have ample space.

  • 5/5 Deelaka L. 2 years ago on Google
    I have visited the place to participate for a wedding function. Meals were good and arrangements were good. But the issue is they do not have Sanitizers available at any place. At least at the reception, washroom, entrance of the wedding hall, no where we were able to find Sanitizers. Better to have your own PPE when visiting.

    We had a function recently.Food was delicious.Noting wrong with it.But service is very poor.When food is getting over from the buffe refill time was very high.We have to inform several times to refill the water for glasses.Aircondition capacity was not enough for the function hall.

  • 1/5 Pu2enc s. 1 year ago on Google
    participated to a wedding function and their service was very poor. Buffet has closed without even informing the guests or client. And the manager was a guy who does not know to communicate or deal with guests. Have not seen such an irresponsible manager for his own duty.

  • 5/5 Harshana D. 1 year ago on Google
    Great to spend evening with your family or friends. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food prices are reasonable and the surrounding is cool. This is a beach front resort and very easily you can access to the beach. Nice pools is there with a baby pool.

  • 5/5 Prasanna R. 1 year ago on Google
    A good place to go for a vacation. I was there in 2012 with our office staff get-to-gether but unable to add a comment. Its amazing memory to remaining again and again...! The rooms were clean and comfortable. They have a variety of tasty food. The staff was really friendly. overall excellent !!

  • 4/5 Pramodh S. 1 year ago on Google
    Good place to have some relax time with your family or just for you. Staff is very helpful from the security officer to the waitor boys. You can access the beach as well. But the beach is not safe to bath. Pool cost is 500rs for 3 hours seems bit expensive and pool is not very enjoyable. When we were there felt like chlorine level is high in the pool. Also you dont have 1hr or 2hr pool options you have to pay 500 for any situation. There is a good grass area where you can play cricket if you have bats and balls. They allow you it. The food is not good. That is the bad part of this hotel. Food was very dry. And we ordered a pork stew. It is also not taste and not cooked well. Chicken devilled is the only good thing we had. Apart from the bad food quality other facilities are okay. You can some nice clicks as well.

  • 1/5 Nafees A. 1 year ago on Google
    Don’t do any weddings here anymore. Managers are liers. Specially Mr Samsn Rajitha who promised to give lots of our requirments. But didnt provide anything . We were so embarrassed at our wedding due to poor service and not providing our requirments . But the manager took extra money saying he would fulfil all. Be cautious if you are doing a wedding at Saffron. Director board may not know about this manager who cheated on us. Please remove this manager.

  • 3/5 Sasanka P. 1 year ago on Google
    Good place for wedding. But rooms and service not good. Buffet item delayed in the wedding time. Be careful when booking. They not deliver as they promise.

  • 5/5 Malki I. 1 year ago on Google
    Had a really nice day out at here with my family. Environment and its vibe is peaceful (not much of a crowded day). Also had nice gestures from the staff. They were very attentive and helpful throughout the day (from reception staff to restaurant staff it was same). The buffet was also fine and satisfying. All the dishes were excellent and delicious. Had a great day at Saffron ❀️
