Our room was very spacious for three of us and bathroom was enormous with a bath and lovely tropical shower. Best thing about this hotel is the Staff, they are all so happy and smiling and anxious to please.... More

We spent 3 night there. The hotel is located in a quiet and peaceful area surrounded with trees. Rooms are clean, tidy and the bathroom is quite large. There is a nice swimming pool. Food is good, we had a great spicy curry there and there were several local dishes on the menu. Also you can be served food at... More

We stayed in the new rooms and ours was perfect. While we were there off season it was quiet. I would ask for a room away from the bar if it was in the busy time. Staff were really helpful. Didn't eat there, had a box breakfast to take on our early morning safari. The buffet dinner looked great but... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Yala National Park. We had a de luxe room and it was lovely. Really spacious and comfortable. The bathroom had a shower cubicle and a separate bath. The dining room was unimpressive with tables really close to the serving area which made it a bit difficult when several people were... More

Have you ever seen a peacock climbing up a tree? We have seen it from Hotel Chandrika Pool Side. It is one awesome hotel that will definitely tie your knot with the nature and will make you love it more. We stayed here for 2 days. We took a cottage which was recently constructed i believe. The hotel is middle... More

We stayed here for 1 night, after a visit to Yale, this hotel is very tranquill, the service is excellent. The food was very good, and they went out of their way to make sure the grandchildren had food they liked. We all enjoyed the swimming pool until very late in the evening. I would certainly recommend this lovely friendly... More

Overall this was a lovely hotel, with a very Scenic outdoor area. The pool is especially nice. It was also very quiet when we were there. We weren't very impressed with the restaurant food but the picnic breakfast they gave us for Safari was good. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming and was great for safari in Yala.

Chandrika hotel is an oasis. Beautiful rooms, lovely pool. Staff are really helpful. Lacks a bit if atmosphere however, everyone seems to retire to there rooms after meals. Perfect if you want a peaceful stay. Stayed two nights in Tissa but really one was enough, after doing Yala safari ( well worth doing, it was great)
