Loved it. Relaxing for the parents while the owners and their new son took our daughter under their wing! While I was there one of the owners was sending a response to a previous guest who had shared news and photos of their new baby. It's filled with the kind of warmhearted people you want to keep in touch with.

We stayed here on our way to Yala National Park and it is in a beautiful setting in the middle of paddy fields and overlooking a lake. We had one of the new rooms on the first floor and it was a lovely, good sized room with air conditioning and a nice bathroom and shower. We had a nice welcome... More

We spend 3 days here and didn't regret it. The guesthouse is situated in rice paddies, to the Tissa Lake you just have to cross the street. Our room was spacious, clean and had a good modern bathroom. We had room nr. 8 on the upper floor which I highly recommend. The owner Jagath was very helpful with safari arrangements... More

The place could be nice but the bad service spoils it. Good location in the middle of paddy fields overlooking the lake and new facilities but the service is appalling and the owner a bully. When we arrived nobody came to welcome us and we felt as if we were unexpected intruders bothering them. during our stay nobody was particularly... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel and found it very relaxing and comfortable. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The views are lovely, overlooking the lake and totally surrounded by rice fields. There are not many rooms, so not many people or noise - it really is peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful but also unobtrusive. Comfortable... More

Our stay at the Serene Park Hotel was very pleasant. The hotel is located at a beautiful spot in the middle of rice fields and with a great view of the lake. As soon as we arrived the owner and the friendly staff did everything to make our stay there rememberble. We really got the feeling that they actually liked... More

We stayed here for one night before visiting Yala Nat park. The quality of food and service was superb. Ragtath, the owner is thoroughly professional and can organise your reasonably priced safari and driver to other destinations. I highly recommend this hotel.

We came across Serene park on trip advisor & managed to get a booking for 2 nights. Fortunately this property & it's operations are well maintained by it's owner Jagath &... More

The room was clean, and the owner was very helpful in arranging a safari to Yala National Park. There are also good views over Tissa lake. However, the air-con only worked sporadically, and there was no wifi available despite this being advertised. The TV in our room also didn't work. There's a very extensive menu for food, but during our... More
