This hotel is located in a prime area if you are interested in experiencing Yala, but the property is in serious need for renovation! The front office staff were professional and polite but F&B service was terrible. The room we were given was situated just opposite the restaurant and we were unable to get any sleep as the bar was... More

This resort is a cool place, the houses are independent and the architecture is simple and elegant. The restaurant is so nice as people take care of you very well. Executive Chef and Janaka the manager in restaurant were very kind. The rooms had snags in bathrooms.

A good location for a good price. The room was ok but bathroom was stinking. Location is good for safari. Food and the staff was good. Nicely landscaped garden and peaceful environment. But poorly maintained rooms.

Poorly maintained rooms let this hotel down which is in an otherwise beautiful setting right in the middle of the wildlife section of the island. The food was good with superb service well supervised by the able restaurant manager, Mr H M Janaka. The staff were friendly and willing.

This place wasn't up to scratch compared to other hotels. The room wasn't properly cleaned when we checked in.There were drinks from the last guests in the fridge, no toiletries and dirty looking linen - I'm not convinced the beds had been changed. When I complained, I was met with shrugs. Our AC leaked onto our bed in the middle... More
