What can we say but wow, wow, wow! We actually stumbled across this property on the web totally by fluke last year and liked what we saw and decided that this was a definite must on our Sri Lankan holiday.

We stayed 4 nights in 2 Tree Houses and loved this place. The accommodation, staff, food etc were all excellent & made for a perfect base from where you can do day trips to Annuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya & Dambulla. We had our own driver who stayed in their supplied accommodation & said it was fine. The breakfast each morning was... More

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.

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!!!

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...
