The service provided is outstanding. Jagath and his staff are courteous and friendly without being intrusive. Their aim is to make your stay in the area as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They speak good English.
The accommodation is very good quality and of a high standard and well maintained. The air conditioned rooms are very spacious, the beds very comfortable and everywhere spotlessly clean.
The food? The Sri Lankan curries are second to none! Don't eat anywhere else! The grounds are beautifully maintained and much of the produce is used for the meals - fruit direct from the trees, vegetables straight from the garden, rice from Jagath's paddy fields (which abound in bird life). We don't eat meat so had many different vegetable curries. Delicious!
Tissawewa is just opposite the hotel providing lovely views, especially at sunset time. The local people selling wares and along the road (which can be busy at times) and fisherman on the lake all add local colour. A 10 minute walk away you come to a huge colony of fruit bats.
Yala is about 30 minutes drive away so if you are going on a dawn safari a good packed breakfast is provided if you want.
