These are two new cottages in good location is Tissa.

The cottages are clean, spacious, especially the bathroom is pretty big. There is AC in the room.

We had very good rice&curry in the evening and the breakfast was also good. The owner is an interesting character to have a talk with.

The location is tranquil but only about 100 meters from the main road with all the required services. There is a small stream nearby so be prepared for some mozzies

Richard Cabana is 2 bungalows, comfortable with a luxury bathroom and as clean as possible, as new! It is a little paradise in nature with a river and exotic birds.
Ajith has his own vegetable garden and makes a delicious rice and curry. My driver Rathanayake from Sri lanka Tours brought me to this place and I thank him for that.
I will come back Ajith!

We stayed at RIchard cabana guest house one night. The place is very nice, cleane and comfortable.
The owner, Ajith, is really very kind and welcoming person.
The dinner that has been prepared by his wife was excellent and definitely one of the best we had in SRi Lanka.

Richard canbanas is a great place to stay. The bungalow we stayed in for one night was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The food was absolutely divine and the manager very friendly and caring. We can highly recommend this little hotel to future guests.

Without a doubt one of my finest experiences thru my 3 months traveling this year was a few nights stay at Richard's Cabana's. Richard goes out of his way to make you feel at home. The rooms are brand new, spacious, and comfortable. After 26 years of driving around Yala National Park, his knowledge and passion of wildlife in the area is like none other, making the stay enjoyable, talking to him about the bird life around the Cabana's (there's a lot), and life in the park.
We stayed 2 nights and ate there for every meal, the food cooked by his family is the best experience of local cuisine i experienced in Sri Lanka. Home cooked goodness, and lots of it.
His local knowledge is golden when working on what to see in the area, as he knows all the cool spots not mentioned in Lonely Planet and other tourist guides.
Each room has cable TV but because of his love of nature, our TV stayed locked on The Nature Channel.
Its safe and reliable so no need to worry about being swindled, and if he offers to come with you on a daily adventure, take him, you'll be pleased he came along for the ride.
Well worth a visit and a great man to know. I can't wait to visit again.

Stayed there for one night with my parents and two kids. We had a wonderful time. Rooms are clean and well kept, food is excellent, and the owners are very nice and caring. Definitely a good place where I will go back with great pleasure.

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 1 night and enjoyed our stay immensely. The food, accommodation and service were 10/10. The cabanas are modern and large and the owner of the cabanas is very helpful. His wife is also a wonderful cook.
