This is a really well located hotel facing the huge lake in Tissa surrounded by rice fields. The view is great and they have spacious seating area on each floor including hammocks and an observation deck so you can see the whole area around. Convenient location to be picked up by safari jeeps and they will happily get up early...

Manager clearly said that he welcomes locals and foreigners in a different manner. Our experience was awful. He screamed at us when we asked to open the gate around 10pm. He couldn't control his temper and yelled at us in filthy words. So there was no option to go out in the night, the gate kept closed. View was nice....
