We liked this hotel, a tranquil setting in a tea plantation around a small lake with nice grounds and wildlife. It was very quiet when we stayed, and we received a warm welcome and good service from the manager. Room was large, with nice furniture and a balcony overlooking the tea plantation. The bathroom needs an update, and the room... More

Perfect place to stop between airport and the Uda Walawe and Yala Nature reserves. This hotel with its beautiful lake is a natural bird and wildlife watching paradise. There is so much to see just within the grounds. Rooms are large and comfortable and the food in the restaurant over the lake is excellent.
