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

My Family decided to stay here on our way to Yala. The property is good but the service was the worst.

The pool was a perfect place to cool after a long journey from Colombo. The hotel rooms are comfortable. Sri Lankan cuisine was great.The hotel is perfectly placed in Yala only 10 km from Thissa town. The staff is friendly and helpful. Special thanks to restaurant manager Janeka for the friendly service.
