#8 of 36 Specialty lodging in Kirinda
Neem Tree House is an immaculately designed villa located at the edge of Yala National Park, in a grove of Neem Trees. Tucked away from the tourist trail, the elegant villa overlooks a serene lake which attracts plenty of wildlife. The minimalist architecture of the property is inspired by the surroundings and invites you to leave your cares behind and let the gentle cooling breeze through the neem trees soothe your soul. The villa has three spacious air-conditioned rooms, two of which have ensuite bathrooms. It also includes two separate bathrooms that can be shared amongst the guests, with hot water provided to all bathrooms. In addition, there is a large cool veranda which sleeps up to 6 people on comfortable beds overlooking the pool and garden. In total, the villa can accommodate 12 persons. We have a thoughtfully crafted menu that highlight the full bodied flavours of traditional Sri Lankan fare as well as the subtler flavours of western cuisine from which you can chose your meal options. You will have a staff of 5 led by Ranjith who will cater to your every need without ever intruding on your privacy, so that you can truly relax.

We traveled as a family with kids. Our experience was simply perfect. The food and the warmth of Ranjith and co's hospitality was top notch. The serenity of the jungle enveloped us. Would dearly love to be back, and soon!

We stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful spot! We are a family of 6 adults and would definitely stay again if back in the area. Everything was very clean and the food was excellent! Ranjith had a early 5 AM morning breakfast packed and ready for us to take on our safari. Supper both nights was incredible. Pool was great. If you have the chance to stay here, I would highly recommend it.

This is a fantastic place to stay at with family or friends if visiting Yala or the surroundings!! Beautiful villa, spacious rooms, lovely pool with a view of the lake (we saw peacocks roaming around, cows and buffalos walking over to the lake all while in the pool). The manager and wife are very lovely and cooked amazing Sri Lankan food. They were able to cater to the various food requirements in our group too. Thank you for a lovely holiday.. we will return!!

We stayed at Neem Tree House for two nights in December 2018. The property is beautiful — a pool with lotus flowers right next to the dining room table, ensuite bathroom, and lots of natural light. But the staff is what took our experience from great to unforgettable. Ranjith sets the tone for outstanding service, and was the perfect blend of ready to assist with anything we needed while also giving us space to relax. Nothing beats home-cooked Sri Lankan food and the food at Neem Tree House was top-notch. We would absolutely stay here again.
