Stayed in the main Resort Hotel, which are individual double bedroom cabins. Set among trees it is a very tranquil and calming place. The environment is superb, walking through gardens down to the river with monkeys swinging through the trees prior to breakfast was superb. The views from the dining room are exceptional and the food and service are superb.... More

We booked 2 river garden cottages 4 months before our trip via a accommodation website. A friend who lives in Sri Lanka near to Belhuloya went to view the hotel and check on our booking to find that the reception staff couldn't find it in the diary - he advised us to check directly. After sending 3 emails which were... More

This was a three bedroom small resort. The main attraction is you can view the fall of Worlds End. Picturesque view of beautiful landscape. The river flows through & it is always refreshing to have a bath. But for some it may be cold.

River garden is a very pretty place to stay with cabanas set in a lovely garden, filled wit the sound of water and birds, and monkeys and some very bold monkeys playing in the trees. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and they can organise some interesting treks and activities. The food and drink are fine, and the only... More

We were booked into this "resort" as part of our 10 trip to Sri Lanka - cycling and hiking and it was the worst of all the hotels we stayed - so it may be value for money but from our perspective (having paid Ecoteam a price) it was not adequate.
