We stayed here for 4 nights during March 2015. When we arrived we were asked if we minded spending our first night in a meditation resort up the road as our room had been given to another guest who required two rooms. We had a visit to the national park planned the next day so said we would only move... More

Chalet accommodation of a high standard. Quite a long way from anywhere so you really have to eat in. Buffet is good at £10 a head and cocktails are about £3. Couple of things they need to resolve. There are no safes in the rooms which was the only time we encountered this on our tour. Also there is only... More

Located nearby the puttalam-Anuradhapura highway a really nice place surrounded by a man made small forest, giving you the experience of wildness and nature. Well maintained luxurious rooms with enough linens. The Place worth your money. It's only 10 minutes drive to the city and ruins of sacred city.

It is indeed a natural ambiance. The sprawling resort is ideal for relaxation. However, it would feel more dreamy, had given reflected light on the trees rather than ordinary hanging lights. They should also be careful in providing three towels, shampoo bottles, glasses, etc for the triple rooms..

Comfortable hotel with all the main amenities. But the cabin we stayed in was in need of some renovation. No mosquito nets and there were plenty of bugs in the room! No wifi in the room, but you can use the wifi in the restaurant and bar. The room was large and rather decent, but the bathroom looked really old.... More

We stayed just one night at the Palm Garden so didn't get the chance to experience all that it had to offer, which appeared to be considerable. Service was very good as were the rooms, although we had one just about overlooking the tank/lake which involved a considerable walk from reception. Thankfully the rains had ended by the time we...

We only had one night having arrived just before dark. We didn't get chance to use the pool but it looked inviting. Our large lodge style room was right at the back of the site which suited us fine as it gave us the feel of being surrounded by nature. The room was large, four poster bed with mosquito netting...

This hotel is conveniently located to be used as a hub for visiting the ruins of the ancient city of Anuradhapura. The main building is lovely with many places to lounge and relax in. The room and the bathroom both were very dated and in need of refurbishment. The food was also very disappointing with very little choice and lacking... More

Basically used the hotel as a hub between a visit to the ancient city of Anuradhapura and a visit to the Wilpattu National Park. In fact, the hotel looks a bit like a combination of these two attractions, minus the larger species of wildlife. The main building, the swimming pool and the garden are just great. But, the dense garden... More
