Had a good sleep, excellent rooms. Ok plunge pool. Went in windy season and had an awesome time. Had dinner by the pool on a full moon poya day. Don't forget to ride the bikes and spend time by the paddy fields. Also try to get the paddy field chalets. Lovely friendly staff. Overall as good as will Uyana but... More

Having just left this wonderful resort after 3 days of relaxing we can't recommend it enough to anybody wanting to visit the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka and escape the humdrum of day to day life! Our villa was beautiful (although blinds and seat coverings could do with a little TLC), the plunge pool perfect after a day's sightseeing and... More

This is THE BEST resort we have ever stayed. Very calm environment. Very friendly staff. Chalets are well located around a water tank. No one from other chalets can see us. Very private. Common pool is very nice. Facing to long view. Private pool also fantastic. Jacuzzi bath is really great experience. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

One of the best Boutique hotels I stayed so far. From the arrival to Departure, it was great. Lot of non traditional hotel activities, like horse riding in the wild environment, cycling from your villa to Reception and other activity places. You truly live with the nature with Monkey going over your villa and Peacocks roaming around the large paddy... More

I wouldn't say I'm a picky person but I can often find things that hotels can improve on, but this hotel is absolutely perfect. There are 20 private villas on a 58 acre estate which is teeming with wildlife. Two beautiful peacocks joined us just before breakfast to take a sip from our private pool. Vijay and the front of...

This is the best boutique hotel we have seen in Sri Lanka so far (and we have been to umpteen). Well laid out in a huge expanse of land (with plenty of jungle fowl, peacocks and monkeys), the large chalets are equipped with every comfort and gadget, with picture windows right round, and a large private jacuzzi pool located outside...

Large luxury individual chalets, with own plunge pools. High quality service, very friendly and responsive staff. Beautiful pool to relax by. Great location to visit the nearby ancient cities. As honeymoon couple we were very well treated. Good food. We were on half board and were delighted that didn't not mean buffet at Ulagalla. Highly recommended overall.

Absolutely 5 star resort. For us, as two able-bodied adults and a relatively chilled 14 year old who like a combination of doing stuff and not doing much, the high points were: Beautiful, stylish private bungalows where you can watch the monkeys and sit in your own private plunge pools. Cycling to breakfast and dinner in the main house. There... More

Have skimmed the 'average' reviews, I am not sure how anyone could give this resort such a rating. This was our first stop after a 4-5 hour drive from Negombo and we arrived around lunchtime to be welcomed by friendly faces, a refreshing cold towel and an equally cold drink. A special mention to Samiru (or Sam) who was so... More
