We stayed at My Village Hotel for one night after our Yala National Park Safari. It's a quaint boutique hotel with only 3 rooms and the African type decor went hand in hand with the Safari theme. Our room was big enough for the four of us - two adults and 2 kids (9 & 12 yo). The beds were... More

I stayed here for three nights in March this year (2015). Sujith (the owner) couldn't have looked after me better - fantastic service and delicious Sri Lankan curry in the evening. Sujith also arranged a brilliant bird-watching tour by tuk tuk - much better than joining all the other tourists in Yala and Bundala. The guest house is very peaceful,... More

Our 2 night stay with a party of 8 was far beyond our expectations. The rooms and premises were very clean and well maintained, staff attentive and Sujith the owner cooked us excellent meals. He was also flexible: cooking what we bought in the market and preparing dishes to our liking. He arranged a good driver and jeep to take... More

We loved My Village. Fabulous huge rooms, spotlessly clean. All the staff were excellent and the food was really good. They don't have driver accommodation so our driver stayed just down the road but ate all meals with us. Really lovely outdoor area. When we came to settle the bill, the owner gave us a discount (unasked for) and also... More

Spent two nights at My Village on the recommendation of a friend whilst visiting Yala National Park. I was not disappointed. The room was great. Nicely designed (by the owner who is an architect). Little touches like small stone shelves at different heights built into the wall. The patio area outside the room was a pleasure to relax in. Lots... More

Whole 5 stars! The best service, very friendly and polite personal. Their cook is a God! Not only tasty but beautiful - rice&carry is delicious. Comfortable rooms, new stuff in bathroom, new QUIET! a/c, many cute interior decisions in rooms and gardens. They're near the lake, but there is not so many mosquitos here, they really do their best. Opposite... More

Bucketing down with rain but still a great place to stay. Inexpensive, beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and Justin the manager is the friendliest guy in Tissa, what an exceptional man. We were a bit out of town (that was good) but Tisssa (easier to say than Tissamaharama) is easy to get to by Tuk-Tuk which Justin will arrange for you... More

I just returned from my second trip to Sri Lanka, we stayed few days at this hotel. Again, I was very pleased by the hospitality of the staff and owner, I feel like at home. They build second floor which shall be opened soon. Definitely I would recommend this hotel for all visitors who would like to stay here. Martin

We found this place from the accomodations list in the Rough Guide and stayed for two nights. The room itself was pleasantly spacious, very clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful with all of our questions. Food was delicious - both dinner and breakfast. Unfortunately, it was very rainy by the time we went there... More
