We stayed here for 2 nights during our trip across Sri Lanka. Right after our arrival, staff ripped fresh coconut streight from palm tree in their garden for us. They recommend some nice locations near to the hotel (Nice lake where many bats flying in the evening etc.). Early in the morning we went on the safari and the staff packed food for us. Very nice stay full of nice and kind people.
