5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

excellent staff and very good service and amenities with staff going well and beyond to help and the horse stables were a treat.we couldn't finish half the things to do over there but ideally would be preferable for a minimum two day stay because a golfsession alone will take you a day

The environment is very calm and quiet. Access road is not in good condition though. I have been there many times (Only to the restaurant, haven't used the rooms) because of good food and the value for money. But the last time i visited the food was not good as usual and there was a big price bump.

Excellent golf course. With plans to construct the Colombo/Kandy expressway, this location is going to be most sought after. Well managed & preserved, this is a wonderful location for golf and/or just a nice quiet holiday. The club house serves good Sri Lankan & International cuisine (buffets available when there's a crowd). The staff are courteous. For non-golfers, walks along... More

One of the great golf courses in Sri Lanka. The hotel is located outside Kandy main city. The access road from Digana is not that good. However, it worth going there and you'll realize once you get there.

Surprisingly the photos of this resort on Trip Adviser do not do this resort justice. This resort is set in beautiful scenery and provides a delightful and quite challenging 18 hole golf course. We were a group of 5 male friends on a golf trip to Sri Lanka and we spent two nights here. Sitting out on the veranda, sipping... More
