We stayed at Kalu's Hideaway for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved our room, the food and the lovely surroundings of the hotel which was great for bird watching and enjoying nature. The river is at the bottom of the grounds and a great place to sit and enjoy the sound

What a fantastic hotel - staff very friendly and helpful. Amazing food. Rooms with a/c are very comfortable and spotless. If you're planning to visit the wildlife park it's the perfect place to stay. We even got a packed breakfast. Wish we'd stayed an extra night.

This is a lovely hotel with a nice pool and excellent food. Beware the "Standard Room" which sadly all have a view of a concrete wall. This is not made clear when you book. When we complained the hotel said they were full and unable to upgrade us, but fortunately our driver /guid

Hi. I have contacted you through the link on your website twice, about booking a safari on 12th December during our stay but you have not responded. Is there another email address I can use to discuss this please?
Sorry not to check the site more often. I booked the hotel through an agent in Ann Arbor who also selected other hotels/tents in Sri Lanka. I went through several wildlife parks in Sri Lanka but again, the agent had selected a guide who made the arrangements. They were very accomodating at Kalu but it was not the best park to visit, perhaps my guide's poor judgment in drivers. BTW I would not recommend going to Yala (way too many people and poor administration)

Hi, Does Kalu Hideaway provide accomodation for drivers? Thank you
Yes they do provide driver accommodation but it is sometimes best to phone ahead and check they have some available as they can get very busy at times.
