Very quiet place in front of the lake. Everything very good, the rooms, the food, the view, a very good place to rest after yala park visit. Indika - the owner has a travel agency that can help to organise you trip.

We stayed here for one night when we visited Yala National Park and really enjoyed our stay - it's one of the places we stayed where we wished we could have stayed for longer. The location is slightly out of town, but don't let this put you off. The service we received from the staff was exceptional; lovely welcome drink... More

I chose this hotel partly because the reviews were outstanding, and now I wholeheartedly agree that every compliment is earned! They provide you everything you need (wifi, ac, clean, comfortable rooms, and delicious food whenever you're hungry!) but without any of the fuss. They arranged transportation, an epic safari at Yala, even tickets to a local festival so that we... More

It's very far away from town, but very quiet. The driver's quarters aren't that nice to be honest..but since it was one night our driver didn't mind. Our room was fine, comfortable bed, clean, large, with a large balcony. It takes around an half hour to arrive by the entrance from Yala from this location..so be aware of that. Food... More

We (4 adults and 1 kid) stayed in a family room for 1 night. A little bit remote from the main road. But the view is very good. We enjoyed the quiet and beautiful morning in the courtyard. The employees are very kind.

Fabulous views of Lake Tissamaharama (Tissa), peaceful and convenient location and cozy great value boutique style accommodation made it the perfect base to explore Yala and southern region. Very clean rooms with great showers, mosquito nets and all modern amenities (like tv and ac, that we didn't use - we don't like ac) and a wide wooden balcony overlooking gardens... More

It is a very good sleep! The view of the lake is well worth the budget price. The balcony on the deluxe accommodation allows for great bird watching. The beds were above average, the in-room bathroom is fine. This is a quiet and rural property. The staff was kind and considerate. Breakfast was standard guesthouse in Sri Lanka fare. It... More
