Good location. Near the Katharagama main religious shrine and temple which was the reason for our visit. Only stayed there for one night. Food was superb. Hotel room was specious but the bathroom needed a bit more up keep. Management also should look at providing WiFi throughout the hotel which I believe is a must these days.

This is, in my opinion, a really beautiful hotel. I travelled around Sri Lanka for two weeks, as part of an organised group tour (so I didn't pick the hotels), and I felt that from an aesthetic perspective this was the best hotel we stayed in. The pool area is almost picture post-card perfect, with a quaint little bridge, large...

Had a nice stay.The meals were delicious and attractive, specially the dinner. There were various types of food. The rooms were well maintained and very clean. The special thing about this is the underwater music in the pool. There was a attentive staff.

A fabulous holiday. Really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Perfectly spaced. Pools were well maintained. General staff was very humble and courteous. It was really thoughtful of them to even get breakfast packed for us during our Yala safari. The Manager helped us throughout taking care of our needs. Maybe some more variety in food...
