We arrived at The Safari early evening after driving from Galle, and were taken straight up to our room. We were both blown away by the incredible view from our bedroom which overlooked the lake. The room was very nice with a large bed, two chairs overlooking the lake and a large, very smart en suite bathroom. By far this was the best hotel of our trip.
There is also a large pool with sun loungers facing out over the river, all-in-all a tranquil paradise and a great spot for anyone with an interest in birds. Contrary to previous reviews we were perfectly happy with the food, the buffet is the only option but there is a wide selection with lots of local dishes.
Would definitely recommend The Safari - make sure you get a room overlooking the lake!!!
