A truely relaxing environment,large rooms with an outdoor area to chill & relax. Very happy, helpful staff, & the food is excellent. This hotel has become a favourite while travelling around Sri Lanka. This Hotel is well above some of the 4**** that I have stayed in.

We arrived and the staff didn't find our booking and as the manager's phone was out of range, we had a problem. Not a good start. Fortunately it was solved within 30minutes and we got to our room. Room was nice, clean, painted with warm colours, bathroom a bit small. We had dinner there, food was good. Twice during dinner... More

One of the best places I stayed in during 3 weeks of Sri Lanka. Absolutely beautiful place, with big and very clean rooms. Aircon is working fine, wifi is very fast and food is great. Considering the price, this is a very very good deal. Only downside was the fact there was no mosquito net. There were a few mosquitos... More

On our round trip through Sri Lanka we wanted to visit the Yala national park. Since it is low season we did not reserve but just dropped in. And we were in for a surprise. This hotel is on a different level. It is superclean, has a modern design and has a very nice garden with lots of comfy seats.... More

We booked a deluxe room at my village for two nights at the beginning of April. The hotel is nicely designed, it has a beautiful yard, the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Food is good and it is freshly prepared. Definitely recommend this place as very good value for money in Tissa.

This hotel is excellent as a jumping off spot for Yala. It's also fairly close to the main city center (200rp tuktuk) and also very close to the lake. The hotel itself is incredibly comfortable and well designed. From the sitting areas downstairs to the sort of "modern safari" styling of the rooms, there are great places to just sit... More

As soon as you enter the main gate of the hotel you think you enter another world. The garden area is nicely decorated so that you can relax and spend your evening before the safari. The rooms are very spacious and clean. So is the bathroom. You can organize your safari directly here at the reception for fair prices. They... More

We booked this guest house because of the good reviews both in TripAdvisor and in Booking.com. On arrival we were welcomed and we could choose our room. We were also offered a coffee too. We chose a room on the corner, because this room was very spacious. The ceiling is quite high, giving a feeling of space. The room is... More

This is a memorable place to stay - can't recommend it highly enough. The design, decor and facilities are amazing for the price. The food is all freshly cooked to order - breakfast is wonderful and their rice and curry so good. The whole place is kept very clean and there are comfy chairs around to lounge in the peaceful...
