I stayed with a group of friends, we came straight from the airport which was a comfortable two hour drive. The setting is so peaceful, good for nature lovers. The staff were lovely and the food excellent...lobster on the set menu! They are building some rooms around a garden where you will be able to pick your own fruit and... More

I love the fact that the hotel is connected with nature which gives a very calm feeling, perfect getaway for a new year. The food is delicious, our room was elegant and the balcony view is to die for, had a good relaxing time with my friends, totally worth it.

Remote, yet 2hrs from Colombo, worth the ride. Serene location, on a private lake, beautiful views, great birdlife! Excellent service, great cuisine and very comfortable chalets. Great for stop-over or romantic weekend-break.

Nice place with unimaginable landscapes which perfectly suits the name "Serenity". I was fortunate to visit twice. Amazed by the surroundings, tea plantation, the lake, greenery, birds and the calmness. foods are also very nice. the rooms (boutique with its own name) will make you feel like home.

Nice place with calm and quiet environment and beautiful surrounding, so much of greenery, friendly staff and much to do with your friends. They need to improve their food quality and a little bit on the quality of the rooms.

Great location, but this is where the positives end. The rooms look nice, but are filthy. The hotel doesn't spray any insecticides and there are big holes in the ceiling, so don't be surprised to find spiders bigger than your hand in the room (or roaches, leaches, etc like we all found) Soundproofing is also unheard of and neighbours can...
