Location is in the jungle far away from restaurants. Food is bland, served cold, mostly buffet style. Hotel too far to find an alternative for the food. Jungle is beautiful but naturally filled with bugs, beware. Pool is fun. Rooms are spacious but barren. Beds are hard, linen very old. Shower on the cold side.

This was an unexpected and very pleasant surprise! Accommodation is in an individual chalet or a spacious room in a 4 unit building dotted around the large property with the open-sided dining room and lounge in a separate structure. A walk across an enclosed bridge takes you to the pool which is stunning in itself and has a large lounging... More

What a lovely surprise the rooms are roomy and the grounds are huge. The swimming pool is a good walk away and a oasis in the jungle. Having a beer at the bar waiting to try out the restaurant. The staff are friendly and we were given a drink on arrival. The only downside so far is that it is... More

I would only recommend you stay here if: You don't mind doing battle with insects inside your room and whenever you set foot outside in the evening. You are happy to be off the beaten track. You are not too bothered about the quality of the food you eat. If the above would bother you, don't stay here. Would not... More

Honeymoon trip during 14 days in SK. We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and it was awesome. Room was large, clean and with AC. Bathroom also perfect. The best area is the swimming pool in the middle of the jungle. Not crowded when we were there (October 2015). Breakfast and dinner were buffets : OK but not outstanding >... More

We stayed in Sri Lanka for 9 days and this was by far our worst experience. The room was far from the reception, oversized, under-furnished, dirty and full of insects. We tried to kill them but soon realised they must be coming in through the balcony and front doors. It was then we noticed that the doors and windows were... More

We stayed there for 1 night and it really did feel like you're back to nature there. The staff were very helpful and the location is beautiful - quite isolated but you really feel like you're getting back to nature here.
