I stayed in this hotel and loved the setup of the villas and the nature in the hotel. Very peaceful environment and the hotel got great views of the Kandalama tank. The food at the restaurant wasn't attractive as the same dishes were rotated during meals.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable and bathroom very adequate. Would highly recommend as a place to stay as staff were welcoming and helpful. The... More

On arriving our check in took about 30 minutes, the Reception staffs were never smiling and they were having arguments for few minutes, in... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights and what a pleasant experience. The huge lobby area with welcoming seating and open air was so invitingly different. Although it was very busy during the stay it is spacious enough in the restaurant area to not feel crowded. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The... More

This hotel is stylish and modern yet also full of character. I loved the huge open plan reception, restaurant and bar area that is open to the gardens with a view across the swimming pool to the lake. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the bathroom is huge, they are in bungalows spread through the lovely grounds. The... More

This hotel is exquisitely set and is very relaxed and tranquil - it is the perfect place to chill out and enjoy the wildlife. It is a good few kilometers outside of Dambulla (850 rupees in a tuk tuk). The rooms are very nice and the pool area is great. While the breakfast if very good, the evening meal selection... More

Did a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka and stayed at 5 hotels so I got an idea of different types and standards. By far this gem of a hotel was my favourite. From the warm welcome with drinks and face towels, the exceptional customer service, the elegant and calm pool to the beautiful grounds and lake this place will... More
