Very cool. No internet,no TV, just the two of us and the crew. Yea, the "3 hour cruise" that comes with each day was really more of a 2+ hour cruise with the last 30 minutes being verrrrrrry slow so as to stretch it out. Food was great, crew was great, bed very comfy and facilities very nice. Is it... More

I took my husband here for his birthday surprise and it was an amazing experience. Food was great so were the staff. There are only 02rooms and the 02 days we were there we had the boat to ourselves. Do take the morning boat cruise as its beautiful to have breakfast on the boat.

Absolutely amazing!. we spent the most beautiful time there. It was secluded, quiet and romantic. The houseboat was extremely silent even when cruising. And they cooked us the most delicious food everrrr. It did take them quiet a while but that was ok since they had mentioned that earlier. Early morning and evening you can hear the Buddhists praying in... More

My wife and I visted Yathra by Jetwing for our anniversary (Oct 2014) and we were glad that we chose this place to celebrate. It was a unique experience and the service provided by the staff was amazing. The Captain was friendly and was happy to explained everything during the cruise. Thank you team Yathra.

Not only was the location superb, literally anchored in the Bentota Lake, but everything else was special. Our room was a one of two the boathouse has and it had all the mod coms plus great... More

It's 5 star comfort in a operational house boat. The boat has two Air-conditioned bed rooms. Rooms are meant only for two persons as they are rather small but very well equipped. Two rooms in the boat. (Accommodation for a third person can be made with prior arrangement with the management.) Even thought about an Umbrella and a torch inside... More
