This is a very well appointed retreat set in the middle of the paddy fields, overlooking a large lake. Superb hospitality from the owner, Jagath, and his team in the kitchen, and as a family with two rooms booked for 2 x nights we could not have wished for a better place to stay. The rooms have been furbished to... More

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in August, with the purpose to visit Yala National Park. The owner helped us book a jeep, which was nice and not too expensive. The room was great! Very spacious, clean, and a beautiful bathroom. The airconditioning worked fine in the beginning, but as more rooms got occupied, it stopped working more frequently.... More

Jagath was responsive by email and telephone and we secured a lake view room. The location is great; down a driveway opposite the lake, albeit with a receding waterline. It's within easy access of Yala and a short walk away from some restaurants The staff are warm and courteous, reflecting Jagath's personality. Our room was spacious and could sleep four... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while on safari in yala and loved this place!! It is nestled amongst paddy fields in front of the lake within a lush garden making it a very peaceful and tranquil place to be. The rooms are big and clean and there are plenty of communal areas to sit around and enjoy the views... More

The rooms were very nice: modern and clean with pivate balcony. The owner and his family where both friendly and helpful in arranging a Safari... More

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights in May to do a safari in Yala. We were greeted as soon as we got out of the cab with a welcome drink. We also had a safari set up for us to go to Yala the next day. I will admit- the safari driver got really nasty with me at... More

We stayed at Serene Park hotel for 2 nights. It was a really pleasant experience - the hotel is probably located on the best real estate in Tissa. It sits amongst rice paddies, adjacent to the most beautiful lake. We saw lots of birdlife, including the majestic kingfisher(s). The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was... More

On our first day in Colombo we met an American woman who recommended this hotel to us. Knowing the fellow travellers recommendations are usually the best, we booked ourselves into the Serene for 3 nights. It was a fabulous recommendation and Jagath the owner was such a fabulous host who could not do enough for us. Our room was very... More
