My husband and I stayed here 10 years ago for our honeymoon and wanted to come back to this special place to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. We have come here with our 3 young children and it has been a very happy stay. We were given 2 beautiful rooms overlooking the lake. We love the rooms with the outdoor... More

Nice room, bathroom was clean. Pools were clean and sparkling. Breakfast and evening meal was nice. A very quiet area overlooking the lake. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Lots of monkeys and wildlife around. Gardens were well cared for.

We stayed here for a night but wished we stayed longer. Amazing views and service, what you'd expect for the price you pay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with a/c, big beds and some with access to a private balcony with amazing view of the nearby lake. Most rooms have nearby access to the restaurant, bar and pool.... More

We went there sometimes back(June 2012) for a holiday. It was a beautiful place. When we were there it was renovating. But we had a great buffet with many more selections. Rooms were not up to the expectation(may b due to renovation in progress). But now you can enjoy the place....

We were here only 1 night; the hotel looked nice, and the rooms were cosy, but a bit overpriced for what they offered. Could do with an open window to get fresh air inside, and would be good to have 'non smoking' rooms options. We arrived starving at lunch time, so we had some lunch and it was probably the... More

We stayed in Deer Park for a few days in May 2014. In short: it was just fantastic! The rooms are very nice and comfortable. All rooms are separate bungalows, which works well for the feeling of privacy. The staff was lovely and very accommodating, always willing to help with a smile. One day we have not even left the...

We stayed here for just 1 night and it was such an alternate experience and i loved it. We had a 2 storey townhouse right in front of the pool. The rooms had a lounge area at the bottom and king size bed upstairs, TV reception is a bit dodgy but the scenery overtakes the TV. The bathroom is extra... More

Large hotel with lots of bungalows. We had a bungalow with an upstairs bedroom. The rooms were clean and the bedroom was very comfortable. The bathroom was open air and with a good shower, plenty of warm and hot water. The food was in buffet style and was good. The desserts were wonderful. The view, overlooking the lake, from the...

We stayed two nights in Deer Park The room was nice, beautiful decoration, in good shape, clean, and the bathroom was not bad either (even if it is not brand new). The tv only had sri lankan channels (but we were not there to Watch tv!). We did not tried the swimming pool since we did not spend a lot... More
