It’s best to arrange a vehicle from the hotel in Bentoa to arrive in Elephant Stables. From Elephant Stables, you can do day trips to Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and to other interesting places. Please feel free to call on 081 742 3200 or drop an e-mail via our website in order to provide you prices.

Dear Reed, When we first opened the hotel, the water pump was fixed near the citronella room hence there were a few clients who were disturbed by the hum it produced. We have moved the water pump to a different location during last winter season hence the subject belongs to the past now :) We hope to see you soon in Elephant Stables !!!
