Tried this hotel as our favorite place of stay at Kataragama (Refresh Cabanas) full. Hibiscus turned out to be an excellent spot to relax with plenty of bird watching and a very big garden to walk around. There are 2 natural ponds where most of the birds come in the morning and in the evening. If you are lucky you may also see two crocodiles coming to these natural ponds, but we didn't see them. Some of the rooms are opening into the paddy fields which is owned by the Hotel owner. This is a family run business and a very relaxing place to spend your time. The pool was under maintenance after the long lockdown period, Food is mainly eastern & Western and quite good. Ample parking in the property. Our special thanks to Owner Mr Sarath Kumara and his son Rajitha( Manager); staff members KAsunika, Nirasha & Ireshika for making our stay at the hotel very comfortable.…
We stayed here for two nights with the plan of visiting Bundala Bird reserve which was sadly closed due to Corona Virus restrictions. Instead we did a tour of the hotel grounds with our guide and saw over 40 species of birds! It was wonderful to have time by the pool in such a beautiful setting. We loved our poolside ensuite room and the first floor dining room with great views. The food was good and the staff were attentive and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it.
Stayed here two nights. Lovely peaceful place at the bottom of a dead end. Beautiful gardens that attract the birds. Rooms have air conditioning and are comfortable with a good shower in the bathroom. Breakfast excellent with a good choice, evening meal very good too.
We had a relaxing stay here and it was a good base for doing a safari. The staff were wonderful. The food was excellent-we requested chicken (off the bone) curry and rice-fantastic. The pool was clean and warm. Would recommend.
This hotel is quite off the track and far away from any hustle and bustle. It was very relaxing and quiet here and the staff were very good and accommodating. Food was decent, nothing amazing but it was nice. The pool was clean and lovely to just chill around during the day. the rooms were very spacious and clean we enjoyed our two nights here.
