Firstly this is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the true nature.Very friendly hosts were most welcoming at this quiet lodge, in this stunning location. Rooms are very clean and beds comfortable. Meals are excellent and local produce used such as fruit and veg. Go there, disconnect,and enjoy!

We arrived late in the evening after a long drive, we took a 5 minutes look and got back in the car and drove 4 hrs through the night just to put some distance between us and this place. Do not go! The road to reach is impossible and it takes a good 2 hours to drive 27km. The place... More

Stayed two nights with my family, all the cottages with excellent view focused towards the water fall. Though the stairs are little steep for elderly aged, worth taking a break. Staff are very friendly, and way out to meet your requirements. Rooms are categorised as family and doubles, well maintained rooms. Fresh and Sri Lankan food served warm, goes good... More
