Food was great (if there are a few people you get a little touch of class and elegance added to your meal since they don't do buffet for few people and the chef get to spend a little more time with your meal personally.

The hotel looks lovely. The staff was very very friendly. The rooms were great but need to do something more with the main door curtain as it doesn't cover the whole window. Food was not so great. Not much choice of food! need to do something on that. all in all Its a great place to relax! Thank you :)

We were very happy with this accomodation. Very large beautiful pool. Both Buffet and A la Carte menu was very good. We had packed breakfast and lunch as had very early Safari. The breakfast was included in our hotel price and was really adequate for lunch as well maybe with an extra nibbly or two. The lunch was over priced... More

This is a beautiful safari hotel very close to the national park. We were able to hire a vehicle and do a park safari in the Yala National Park. The food is very good and the staff are also very friendly and helpful. We will use this all the time we go there.

Elephant reach is a pretty average hotel. The hotel looks amazing on its website but not as good when you finally arrive there. The rooms were clean but the bathrooms could do with some work. The food is also average and not many local dishes. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at this hotel with my family as it was close to the yala national park and because it provided luxury accommodation. The hotel rooms are located separately in different cottage like structures. It's actually a wonderful sight and the best thing about the hotel is that you are greeted by elephants at night. This is really adventurous. The... More
