We decided to stay another night, because it was so nice over here! We stayed in the cabana near the river. We were given binoculars and a bird book to watch the birds that were flying around over here. Also, the owner showed us around in his garden. The room was very spacious and clean. Dinner was very good, we... More

We had a great stay at Richards cabanas. Ajith, the manager is friendly and helpful. The welcome juice was delicious and he chatted with us about doing a safari in yala national park. He organized it and made a pot of tea for us at 4:30am before our safari. The rooms are thoughtful and detail oriented and I would only... More

We had a fantastic time staying at Richard Cabanas. The host Ajith was fantastic and welcoming. The room was large, clean and modern and surrounded by nature. There were two peacocks in the stream next to our room when we arrived. Two things for us set this place apart. Firstly Ajith's wife cooked us the most amazing traditional Sri Lankan... More

Truly a gem tucked away in Tissa. My parents and I stayed for three nights and used it as a base for Yala. There are two very special things about this place: Ajith (the host), and the beautiful natural setting of the cabana (by a canal, surrounded by trees and many many birds!) Ajith's wife prepared our meals, and the... More

We stayed in the beginning on June, we had 2 cabanas. The gentleman was brilliant preparing one room with balloons and a banner to celebrate our friends birthday, a table in a lovely restaurant in the town for us and a taxi to and from the restaurant and he arranged our safari for the next morning. He organized a packed... More

My husband and I stayed at Richards Cabanas for 2 nights on our honeymoon. Ajith was a great host setting us up with a great driver to Yala National Park. His wife makes delicious food although the menu is limited. Everything in the room was brand new and very clean. We took the bikes out for a ride around Tissa,... More

When it comes to customer service, sometimes the smallest places show the worlds most luxurious hotels up. Ajith and his wonderful family are so attentive and caring they really do make you feel special. From welcoming you with fresh juice, lighting incense outside your room and providing good tips on local attractions, this family really do aim to please. Ajith... More

Booking accommodation for Yala gave us the biggest headache....and I am really glad we chose Richard Cabanas. Just everything is right. One can watch colorful birds from the veranda but the grass is cut short and therefore suitable for people that don't like unknown crawly wildlife. Good working AC. Nice sitting area outside the cabana. The bed were two singe... More

We stayed 2 nights in Richard Cabanas and enjoyed it very much. It was perfect location for the Yala Safari. Our bungalow was very confortable and it was great to have breakfast/dinner on the terrace. The food was excellent, the best we had in Sri Lanka. Thank you to the owner for making our stay so enjoyable. Hope to be... More
