5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a wonderful 5 nights stay in the other corner. Arrived quite late on the first day with our 2 young children ( 5yo & 2yo), even then the staff was only happy to help. We had booked 2 villas and they were very comfortable and spacious and was cleaned almost every day. The choice for breakfast, whether local... More

What a great place to spend a few days while exploring the Cultural Triangle or just to relax and connect with nature. Superb rooms (we had the family chalet, 3 friends), excellent food, the staff was more than helpful and accommodating. The pool is wonderful, especially at night while morning runners such myself will love watching elephants come by. They... More

Accommodation was very nice. We were a group of 7, stayed 3 nights, loved the lovely setting. Very warm and friendly staff ever willing to help. Excellent food. Perfect base from where you can do day trips to Annuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya, Dambulla. A visit to Minneriya National Park is a must.

Quiet and relaxing place with a limited number of wood bungalows in a tropical garden with a pool. Warm welcome from the owner and smiling staff. Good situation to visit several cultural sites (Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa...) and see the elephants of Minneriya national Park.

This place has a resident naturalist who leads informative local walks during which we saw a myriad of bird species. The location is very convenient for trips to see wild elephants and also for visits to Sigiriya for... More

My partner & I loved this place. Such a great setting & friendly people. Woke up in the morning to monkeys outside our room. Lovely food & very friendly staff. We would visit again in a heartbeat. Only regret is not having chance for the nature walk due to a jam packed schedule. Definitely stay here!!!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights whilst travelling around Sri Lanka for our honeymoon. The good points: The setting of the hotel was beautiful. The hotel offers a free nature walk which was actually a highlight for my husband of the whole holiday. The gentleman who provided the tour had some excellent stories and was very knowledgable. He...

A lovely, eco hotel, with separate bungalows set in nature. Very clean and tidy grounds with friendly staff and manager always around to help. The breakfast was delicious, always lots of food as well as the dinner. We had a BBQ one night, enough food to feed a party! The hotel respects the nature around them, which was very nice.... More

First of all, the staff at this hotel (TOC) were as good as you will find anywhere. The manager was very attentive to our every request and it was a delight to meet him. The dining room crew were outstanding and the kitchen staff were clearly very experienced, well-organised and knowledgable, so we really enjoyed our meals. The fact that... More

A very luxurious but eco conscious resort. If you are not into heat or bugs this is not the place for you as the outdoor areas can become hot and there are lots of mosquitoes due to proximity to lake. However that aside it was a beautiful setting near the jungle and elephant walkways. The bird expert Sunny was great,... More
