This property is located in a town called Kuruwita, but not in Kalawana. The address of this listing mention the both city names. I guess it should be only Kuruwita but not kalawana. I hope somebody can change this

The view (from the balcony of our room) of the undulating mountain range of the central highlands with the poignant Sri Pada (Adam's Peak)... More

Regretfully we arrived somewhat late and stayed one night! Place was almost empty. Pillows with flees but new ones after complaining! Beautiful surrounding and helpful staff. Food was oké if you order Sri Lankan food! In the morning many birds and wonderful views . A place you might easely skip during a round trip!

AMAZING!!!! After arriving at Lake Serenity after a very long and distressing journey we were so pleased to be greeted by Viktor and Nishara, who are a part of the wonderful team working at Lake Serenity.

The staff was friendly and the boutique was well organized and had all required accessories. The surrounding is beautiful, quite and calm. There is walking paths from the hotel main buildings to the Boutiques area. The restaurant was little slow but OK. Food is quite good. Hotel is surrounded by tea plantation.

Interior of the room had the theme of an antique villa house of Sri Lanka with luxury antique furniture but with all the modern facilities such as Wi-Fi,... More
