Have stayed at this hotel more than once and I must say that the hotel is a pleasant surprise considering what's in and around the area. Very quiet hotel with super helpful staff. Although it lacks variety, food quality is good and rooms are decently well maintained. There's a nice swimming pool if you are in mood for a dip.... More

Stayed here with kids as a base to explore Uda Walawe and it was great. Lovely big pool and super helpful staff. Rooms ok but we were out pretty much all day. Decent selection of food on the buffet. Seemed quite empty when we visited and the staff were eager to attract more guests and given the above they will... More

Firstly,we didn't originally book this hotel but after Agoda issued a voucher but failed to confirm our booking and the next choice was now gone we agreed to the Hotel Sobana after checking out their website and reading reviews on trip advisor. To say we were disappointed with this hotel would be an understatement.It could actually be a nice hotel... More

As we are B&B travellers we were probably in the wrong place staying in this hotel. We enjoyed an excellent service especially from the manager. Every wish was arranged within no time and no surcharge. Unfortunately we found our room a bit dirty and there were everywhere ants (maybe seasonal). There's a great pool (where the breakfast was served to... More

This is a beautiful hotel, brand new, with very professionnal and friendly staff (especially the manager Lucky!) We were lucky enough to be able to enjoy this hotel all by our own (were the only guests that night), and that was such a great experience! The swimming pool is very big and very nice, which is quite enjoyable after a... More

We spent a few nights at this hotel as part of our honeymoon. We arrived late in the evening and didn't see what an amazing spot this hotel was in until our early morning game drive. You drive through quite a rural area to reach the hotel and there was a stunning lagoon nearby! During our few days here, we... More

The hotel is set amidst the Kiriibban wawe and the view is breath taking... The trees and the pathways are very quite and Relaxing. The heath Spa was good after a dusty day at the park and a dip in the pool was very smoothing. I thank the GM and staff on duty for the services and typical Sri Lankan... More
