We have just spent 2 nights at Flameback (family of 5, 3 teenagers). Amazing luxury tented accommodation on the banks of a stunning lake. The staff could not have been more welcoming, kind or attentive. We loved it!

This was our first night in Sri Lanka after a long trip and it was extraordinary. We were warmly welcomed, the tent is beautifully located in front of the lake. It is furnished with style, is very clean and most of all comfortable. The diner was also a wonderful experience, not only all dishes were very tasty (excellent barracuda fish !) but they were decorated with style. Congratulations to the chef ! To wake up with the song of the birds was very nice and the breakfast in the middle of nature was excellent and relaxing. Thank you very much to the manager and the whole team who made our stay so unique, particularly when the country is facing a severe crisis. It was a pity to stay for one night only because there is much to do at the hotel and in the surroundings.

If you come to Sri Lanka to be with nature, this is the place to experience it. Not a camping kind of gal and learned what glamping is after our stay! What a superb and unique place! Being in a tent, with a shower, bathroom and air conditioning in the middle of the bird sanctuary! The staff were so attentive the minute we arrived. We did a cooking class and the food was so GOOD!!! Hopefully, I can recreate it at home! Our guide for the bird watching nature tour was so knowledgeable - he spotted and pointed out so many beautiful birds. This is superb place to stay near Yala National Park. We are on a private Sri Lanka tour for 10 days. Our driver is great and we have experienced no issues at all. We felt safe and everyone here is super friendly, welcoming and taking care of us.

This is 100% one of the best places I have ever stayed. In October 2021 I got to stay here for my honeymoon vacation and I have nothing but good memories here. Stay was super friendly and extremely attentive and understanding. Special thanks to the staff member who was dedicated on helping us who was such a wonderful person. This is absolutely a hidden gem of a place. And I have to mention that the food here was amazing. Definitely going to re-visit here on our next visit to Sri Lanka.

Me and my partner stayed at the Eco Lodge Flameback for 3 nights at the honeymoon suite for 3 nights and without a single doubt we can say, that this is the best experience we had in Sri Lanka. ROOM : Since we stayed at the honeymoon suite (Presidential suite) it was a huge room. Not to mention your own private pool. In terms of cleanliness, it was absolutely spotless. FOOD : As for food, you cant exactly complain about the food. The options isn’t too many, but if you plan on eating something that isn’t on the menu, just tell the head chef and he will make it happen for you on the spot. Also, it is a must to try the local cuisines. The Sri Lankan breakfast was extremely good. We also joined a local cookery class where they teach you how to prepare some of these cuisines. LOCATION : Being surrounded by a lot of green and a lake literally next to your room, its amazing. You wake up to the amazing sound of the nature and birds. If you get lucky, you wake up to monkeys running around next to your room. Thankfully, we got to experience both of these. STAFF : All the staffs were incredibly helpful. They will make sure that you always get what you want. I would specially like to mention the Assistant Resident Manager (Sampath) who is the best staff you can meet in the hotel. He is always happy to help you out with a smile on his face. Overall I would highly recommend to stay in this hotel. You will not regret it.

Superb lodge reasonably close to the southern Yala entrance. Super tents are on stilts - puts the glam in glamping. Buffalo breeze through, the lake is yards from your deck while the raised platform restaurant is very ‘safari’. As invariably the case, staff are lovely and attentive, even laying on a bird safari free for us in the vicinity. Food was excellent, layout of the place including the smallish pool was perfect. Top marks from a foodie/birder keeping away from the crowd.

This eco lodge is truly a gem. We stayed here for 8 nights and did't want to leave. The staff, tents, and food were all out of this world. We literally can't wait to go back for another holiday - some of the hightlights were the safari tours to the National Parks. We had the most amazing ranger/guide called Chami who was so knowledgeable about all the birds and wildlife. He helped us to view and photograph so many birds and animals on our safari trips. We would recommend asking for Chami for the safari tours. The manager of the resort, Prashath was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make our holiday very special. Also the lady at the front desk, Dihani and the restaurant manager Sampath were very attentive to all our needs. We would really recommend a holiday at Flameback Eco Lodge!

This little lodge makes you feel right at home the moment you arrive! I am definitely not a "camper", I consider myself a "glamper" and Flameback does not disappoint! The A/C is nice and powerful and it's lovely to wake up with the sunrise and sounds off birds chirping and monkeys jumping between the trees. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely accommodating. We were only here for 2 nights but could have stayed another just to enjoy the pool & scenery. Don't miss out on the local massages!

Hotel and restaurant staff are amazing, so welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you! Curry for packed lunch is delicious. Very well run lodge, although location is quite close to a busy road. Felt my holiday had started the moment I stepped on to the restaurant balcony :) Pool with view of the lake, so you can bird watch while you swim :)
