Our stay here at Serene Park was nothing but amazing! The staff were exceptional, the location is a postcard in the rice fields, and the food is by far one of the best dishes I have ever eaten (Sri Lankan curry and rice). Absolutely phenomenal.

This is a relatively new property I believe, and it's just not worth the money. The location is beautiful, and the food is very good (breakfast and dinner). The front desk is also helpful with arranging, from a safari to a driver to a tuk-tuk to go into town. Air conditioning is also very good. There were too many problems... More

We stayed here for two nights for our safari in Yala. The hotel is wonderful, rooms are lovely and clean. There is a communal area on the ground and first floor with hammocks to chill out in too. We had dinner here both nights and the Sri Lankan curry was incredible! Breakfast was also great too. The owners were lovely... More

Friendly staff, very friendly owner who helped us with businfo and took us to the busstation. Serves goodtasting food. Location is no problem. Can be booked directly by e-mail. Did Yala National Park safari in Tissa - very recommendable, but do a fullday safari so you can get away from the crowds on the morning and afternoon safari.

We stayed here for one night after the place we had originally booked turned out to be awful. We were booked on a safari at 5am the next morning so we needed a good nights rest and we got it here. The hotel is currently undergoing expansion and they appear to be building a third floor so there was quite... More

My husband, son and I stayed one night at Serene Park as we were to visit Yala park the next morning. We found this hotel to be very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced, the staff very friendly and obliging and the setting is spectacular - among rice fields. Across the street is a great lake where many species of... More

This was our favourite hotel during our trip to Sri Lanka. The owner and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable (and had good AC!) and the food was really nice.

We (family of 5) stayed for 2 nights in this hotel in july 2015. The view, on Tissa lake, is excellent! The hotel is situated in the midst of green fields. Charming staff, and good food, as well dinner as breakfast. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Airco and fan worked without any problem. I would certainly recommend this hotel. In... More
