This was the best experience in Sri Lanka and we tried many hotels. The communication with duminda was excellent and fast. The welcome was warm,The room was amazing, clean, comfortable and the attention to details (which is not common in Sri Lanka) was mindblowing. We enjoyed the dinner which was delicious also the breakfast. If you are planning the safari than this is the best choice. Perfect location. Duminda will make sure that his jeap is first in the line so you save time. Roni,our guide was also great. We saw many different animals. Overall our stay was perfect thanks to duminda who puts all his heart into this.

Our staying started with a little problem because of the last accommodation we stayed at Ella. He could be really angry at us but he was really generous. Also I had another little problem with the passport and he could take advantage in that situation. But he was just honest and tried his best to hand us the passport even after we left his cottage to move to the new city. Thanks to him I could get my passport back in Galle, which I left in Ella. I can’t thank him enough. He saved our time and money. HE WAS OUR HERO. We stayed in private room in a cottage with a private bath. We are sharing one wall with a family staying in the next room but we couldnt hear sound of them. We were two but you can stay with 3 people since the beds are 2 in the room. Hot shower is working well too. The cottage has a small garden and it has swings, hammock and a football so I reckon its also kids-friendly place, which is good for a family. Also for 700 rupees(per person) you can have amazing Sri Lankan home-cook dinner, one of them was their own style caramelised fish and onion which was the best dish I’ve had in Sri Lanka. Even the yogurt came as dessert was so nice. It was easy to organise safari and taxi with him too. Just talk to the owner and he will organise everything in a fair price. We are so glad that we stayed there. You can 100% trust him and will have best experience there.

We stayed for 1 night to go to Udawalawe National Park, the room was big and clean, great value for price. The dinner we had there was the best curry we've had in Sri Lanka. We hired the safari with them, Ronni was an excellent driver we saw elephants, birds, and many other species of animals, and it was the lowest price for the safari (we asked around before booking it).
