We only stayed one night but we wish we could have stayed longer! We were greeted with a fantastic traditional Sri Lankan welcoming and from that point on it was the perfect stay. Great food and accommodation. The room had beautiful views and the food in the evening was plentiful and delicious! We were picked up outside the hotel by our safari jeep and had an excellent day out. Would highly recommend!

We did not know about Kalu's Hideaway but were looking for a place to stop off for a late lunch and for my elderly Mother to spend a few hours while we went on the safari. Our driver said he knew a nice place and brought us here - and even though it was an improvised stop, we were warmly greeted by the legend himself (for those who don't know, one of Sri Lanka's revolutionary cricket players who helped transform the one day game) and the staff did everything they could to accommodate our requests even though the kitchen was about to (or had) closed. We were amazed by the beautiful, clean and peaceful property and have bookmarjed it as a place we will return to and spend a few days at the next time we visit Sri Lanka. Good food, cricket fans will love the memorabilia, wonderful hospitality, peaceful place.

Loved this place. Although only 3 stars , which may be due to only having 14 rooms and less facilities maybe. It was beautiful setting, peace, quiet, tranquility. Would definitely return for some R&R. Only point i would say is that it would be nice to have more food choices. Bit repetitive each day.

Very close to Udawalawe wildlife reserve. Very friendly with Kalu, Sri Lanka's world championship wicket keeper often in attendance. Veggy garden to supply the excellent restaurant plus lots of indigenous fruit trees. Good airy rooms with balconies overlooking the garden. Excellent pool. Really good stay

We spent one night here whilst visiting Udawalawe National Park and the Born Free Elephant Orphanage . On arrival we were given a head massage which was very relaxing . Our room was large and very comfortable with a good size en-suite bathroom . The restaurant looks over a lovely pool which was a welcome treat after a long day. We had wonderful relaxing beauty treatments , facial , reflexology and head massage .. the therapists were excellent. We loved the buffet style meals and the ‘cold room ‘ filled with fresh fruits and delicious desserts ! I highly recommend a stay here .
