I was very positively suprised by this accomodation! The place is clean, beautiful, has a good location and has a nice garden. I have been travelling in Asia for one month now and i can defenitely say that this is the best accomodation i have had compared to the costs. I am not joking when i am saying i have had the best shower in the last weeks. They have a rainshower with nice warm water. Also the breakfast was really nice and the host is very kind. He helped us book a safari, which was great and helped us finding the right busses to Ella. By the way, 10 min walk from restaurants and 15 min drive from the national park. I would defenitly recommand to anyone!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights in March 2019 so we could visit Udawalawe national park. We were greeted with the warmest welcome from Janaka, who organised a taxi from Ella at a very reasonable price. The cabana is new, clean and comfortable. You can spend hours sitting on their terrace reading and watching the birds (which don’t notice you’re even there!). We eat breakfast and dinner here twice, which is cooked by Janaka’s mum, whose dishes were delicious and plentiful. Janaka organised an early morning trip to the national park (5 am start) at a very reasonable price with a tour guide called Tariq. We loved the safari and Tariq has hawk-like eyes and can spot all kinds of wildlife. We saw herds of elephants, spotted deer, crocodiles, turtles, monkeys, wild boar and various birds. Tariq is very clued up and knew the various species of birds we saw. He is also very considerate for your safety and even helped another jeep, which was stuck in thick mud. When we arrived back at the cabana, we were provided with a big delicious breakfast. Later that day, Janaka arranged our visit to the elephant transit - charity sponsored organisation, which rehabilitates young orphan or sick elephants so that they are ready to be released into the wild. This place definitely pulls on the heart strings! We highly rate this place to stay (Janaka is the kindest and will organise any activity you wish to do) and the tour with Tariq.…
Great place to stay! We initially book for 1 night, but we fall in love with the place, so we stay one more night! Very friendly guest, great safari, amazing breakfast and dinner, super super bathroom and room. What else? Hardly recommended!!
Very clean and nice room. The attention was super good, the host even delivered breakfast 6 in the morning before the Safari tour, the service was beyond the expectations. We really recommend this place. /Pamela
We booked this accommodation we'll in advance of our s tray in Sri Lanka not to have to worry about it while travelling. To our great surprise owner cancelled our booking after he found out that we will not be doing safari with him, which left us in a situation where we had to find a new accommodation at the last moment! That's not a surprise that you want to have during your holidays so my advice is to stay away!
