We were very impressed with Serene Park. Even before we arrived, we had a feeling of goodwill from the host. We made contact soon after arriving in Sri Lanka, asking if they could assist us with organising a safari, as we would only be staying the one night. Not only did they arrange a safari, but when we realised 4... More

What a lovely place. We had the big first floor room with a large communal covered patio right outside. Must be one of the best views of the lake in Tissa. There are a couple of hammocks on the patio and easy chairs. Downstairs is the large open eating area and reception desk. Everything is spotlessly clean. The owner/manager Jagath... More

This place is a perfect place to stay for a trip to Yala national park. The interior is european, rooms and facilities are spotlessly clean. A very nice room with a/c for a very reasonable price. Great view over Tissa Lake. The host drove us to Ella and showed us Kataragama on the way for a very fair price.

Home cooked best quality food for dinner. Quiet and clean, no shops or restaurants in the surrounding. The TV set in the dining area can be switched off. Comfortable beds and bathroom, air condition and wifi perfect. Illumination for reading in the bed could be better

The hotel is in a paddy field with lovely views over the lake. We had a huge room albeit a bit bare with a large en suite. The owner and staff were really helpful lending us a mobile phone to call our UK bank and refusing any payment. There is no landline hence no credit card payments although the owner... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed it! The owner and all staff are very friendly and try to make guests feel comfortable. The room was basically furnished but charming. Especially the view into the rice fields was very, very nice. The terrace was an ideal place to relax. The food which we ordered was delicious, breakfast very good with local... More

Our stay here at Serene Park was nothing but amazing! The staff were exceptional, the location is a postcard in the rice fields, and the food is by far one of the best dishes I have ever eaten (Sri Lankan curry and rice). Absolutely phenomenal.
