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

Gorgeous setting in spiriting distance of Tissa and gala national park. Some of the most spectacular scenery in Sri Lanka. Clean bright rooms, quiet, lovely service, super breakfast, nice staff. The walk back in the darkis really spectacular, rooms have air con and fans. Hot water.

Stayed here for one night as a base for our Yala safari, really nice place, clean & comfortable. The owner was super helpful, sorted us out a great safari & bent over backwards to help with arranging all we needed. Lovely area to chill out & read with views of the rice paddies & the lake. Was a functional visit... More

We stayed here 2 nights in March and we liked it. The hotel is quite new and we had a room upstairs. Very clean and quiet, good airco, nice bathroom, but it lacked a little interior designing like paintings, good lightning. The welcome area and dining area downstairs could be a little more welcoming, as the staff is watching tv... More

We stayed at the Serene Park for one night and had a fabulous stay. The hotel is in a beautiful location, just rising up from the rice paddies. The owner said he owns about 2 acres, which they were just starting to harvest when we arrived. There are also fruit plants planted right around the hotel, and that is the... More

We headed to Tissa for a Yala safari and booked two nights at Serene Park based upon recommendations found on Agoda. While there are some issues with Serene Park, overall we really liked our stay at this hotel. First, the issues-the rooms have very high ceilings and air conditioner units too small to properly cool, which was an issue with... More
