Stayed here 2 nights and the experience was amazing. The staff was very helpful with our requirements. Best place to blend with nature and since we booked around 3 villas we got the whole place to ourselves. The manager Chanaka who works at the Yala property took his time to come and greet us and share his experiences about the wild. The BBQ they organized for us was truly amazing and delicious. Overall amazing experience and with the friendly staff who would go beyond to cater you needs, would definitely recommend anyone to visit this place.

We were at Kahandamodara in September 2020, With a bunch of my friends. Amazing place with superb service.. Pool: Safe and Clean Food: 3/4 course menu, mouth-watering food, balance, and healthy diet, Always didn't forget to check our preference as well. Nature: Huge property, very quiet and calm, But definitely you can sing a song and have some fun. Sleep: We stayed in the two-bedroom AC villa, super clean, and had a comfortable sleep Service: Fast and detail, Staff has arranged surprised milk rice for my birthday. Thanks a lot  Definitely would like to recommend it to someone who wants to relax your mind and nature lovers too... Special thanks to Sajith Withanage who recommended this place.

Had an amazing experience there, with a great mix of peacefulness, kindness and relaxing. Booked the full package with doctor’s treatment, massage and meals on top of accommodations, and it was clearly worth it as we left re-energized. The food and the site manage were everything we wished for.
