We stayed in a double cabana, which was quiet and air-conditioned. The bathroom was spotless and to a very high standard. The bedroom itself was also nice, although our double bed was actually two single mattresses pushed together (but in a secure way). The owner was one of the most helpful people we met during our trip. He arranged a... More

Made to feel very welcome by Richard in his lovely cabana - great room & lovely breakfast. We didn't have dinner there, we walked the short distance back to the main road & ate in a local restaurant. In the morning watched a man climb up the coconut trees to get nuts & trim leaves - made it look so... More

Fantastic stay, a highlight of our Sri Lankan adventure. Really comfortable room, newly done up with large, sleek bathroom. Delicious dinner served on the porch of your cabana, best dal on the island! Really friendly owner, helping in any way he could. Thoroughly recommended!

What a stay, not much I can say to top other reviews but Richards cabanas is an absolute gem. The best so far on our trip. Ajith was one of the most friendly knowledgeable and welcoming people we have had the luck to meet this trip. The curry and rice we ate there was outstanding and everything about the room... More

Ajith is definitely the star attraction. The host has foresight into what the traveller needs and with his abundance wealth of knowledge you know you have arrived at a special destination. The property is serene and has a natural peaceful charm. The rooms are immaculate, comfy bed, spacious, great water pressure, best TV reception in Sri Lanka, free wifi, Breakfast... More

We recently stayed at Richard Cabanas in Tissa - and it was a great place - the best of our entire trip to Sri Lanka. The hosts were so kind and welcoming and very generous. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable - and had some character in their decor (a bunch of flowers, and some nice pictures on the... More

We stayed at Richard cabanas for 2 nights in June 14. What a wonderful place!! Fantastic food, comfortable room and excellent service! Ajith couldn't do enough for us, including serving us packed breakfasts at 4.45am before we went off on a safari! If we returned we would do a safari with Ajith as he clearly had a wide knowledge, respect... More

We can't recommend this place enough. It's such a beautiful rural setting (but still only a 100 Rs tuktuk ride from the centre of Tissa) and it was an oasis of calm and peacefulness. The rooms were immaculate and colourfully furnished, and towels, soap, plug-in mosquito repellent and even a hair dryer were provided, along with great air-con and a... More

They were fully booked when we arrived so we came back the next day for two more nights. Having seen the competition we were even more grateful for the warm welcome and friendly service at Richard cabanas. The room was superlative for its price range, the bird watching from our veranda a pure joy. Had we been there for our... More
