Good spacious rooms around a central pool area that was welcome respite from the heat. The food was excellent on our three night stay especially on the two nights when the hotel was quiet and we were given some respite from the holiday buffet with a menu and good waiter service. The only criticisms are the bumpy approach road and... More

I did not like this hotel. While our room was "clean", it was also home to a large colony of ants and there were hoards of beetles massing at the door waiting to infiltrate the room whenever anyone went in or out. They got everywhere, in my hair, in the bed, everywhere. My mom says that means that the room... More

We spent one night at this hotel after a safari to Yala National Park. I wish we had more time to stay there. The hotel has beautiful bungalows around a swimming pool with a big pond, in which we discovered there is a Crocodile in residence. It is lovely and quiet there with beautiful flowers and shrubs in abundance. The... More

Spent one night and enjoyed it very much. Beautiful place surrounded by a garden and a nice swimming pool in the middle. Rich breakfast and helpfull stuff. Only problem is the lack of backup for the solar system which heats the water. No sun means - no hot water ....

Unfortunately, we stayed at this hotel only for one night. The bungalows in the hotel are arranged round the pool, the single rooms are quiet, very spacious, clean, and equipped with ceiling fan and air-conditioning. The hotel itself is a very good starting point for Safaris into the Yala NP. The restaurant is located directly above the main entrance, close... More

We stayed here for one night whilst on safari at Yala National Park. The hotel is situated in lovley grounds with a decent size pool and good size well appointed rooms ideal for short stays. Both the evening meal and breakfast were excellent, and the staff are all lovley. We would definatley stay here again.

We stayed here on the day we went to Yala National Park so we definitely recommend for anyone doing the same. Large, comfortable room, nice pool area and the food was lovely. Flowers on the bed on arrival was a lovely touch.

Ok so this place looked okay at first, nice pool, airy main building with open restaurant. But then we saw the room. Small, which normally doesn' t bother me, but now it did as for 10000 rp per night I have stayed in much bigger ones here. It was quite dirty and rundown. The room was also home to a... More

We stayed here for one night as part of our Sri Lankan tour, originally we were supposed to be doing a Yala safari but as my wife was pregnant we were advised not to so we spent the afternoon in the gardens relaxing by the nice pool. The bedrooms were simple but clean, there was very little hot water as... More
