We stayed for two nights. The rooms are very generous in size with a beautiful view across the lake. Regularly saw the elephants walking past and monkeys visit the balcony. Would highly recommend the hotel

This Resort is in a beautiful location with a fresh refreshing breeze blowing across the lobby area of the hotel. The elephant back ride trail is a spectacular feature across the lake and to see this huge animal take its long strides along the bund is a one time experience. The rooms are well appointed with modern fittings and the... More

Stayed for two nights and the dinner and breakfast buffets kept getting worse as the day went on! Not friendly and very poor service. The food was cold and they never refilled any of the dishes. Sometimes they charged you for water and others were free!

The entrance to this hotel is through a very basic, rough track but when you arrive it is ideally located for its views of the lake and people taking elephant rides. There is also a touch of local colour in that the lake/stream immediately in front of the balconies is used by the locals for washing and laundry. The rooms... More

We stayed at the hotel with our group (14 other people) and were appalled by the poor quality of the room and the dirtiness of the bathroom. The AC is strong and it is difficult to sleep if you are a light sleeper. The bathroom was very dirty and was not cleaned properly. We were surprised to see that some... More

Located close to many natural attractions (lakes, jungles), Sorrowwa Resort and Spa gives you an unforgettable experience. Elephant rides along the banks of the river is a great experience. The staff and the food are great.

Stayed for one night and scored the VIP room (401) which had 2 bathrooms, dining room and a living area, but no view to speak of. This hotel tries hard but falls down in some important areas. Water pressure in our room was just about non-existent and having a shower was a challenge but the floor flooded so less water... More

This was the 1st stop for our party of 4 doing the culteral triangle in Sri Lanka. We arrived in a rainstorm which does make the road to the lake muddy but we're welcomed with cool towels and a refreshing drink. The rooms were spacious with lovely balcony and view over lake. We did find the locals using the smaller... More
