“Just as good as we know we get at Flower Garden hotels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We have taken holidays at Flower Garden, Unawatuna for six years and found Lake Resort as good as the high standard we have enjoyed, and come to expect, at Unawatuna. Sassi trains his staff very well, the service is exemplary and the food great. As you arrive in the tranquil lake side setting you immediately know you are in a Flower Garden with the layout and style of the buildings and the warm welcome from all of the staff.

Room Tip: We had room no. 1, very handy for the swimming pool but less view of the lake than those nearer to t...

We had 3 nights in Tissa and we spent them all at this small 'lodge'. Our rooms was lovely with aircon, TV and a veranda with a great view of the lake. The food was ok but nothing special and the staff did well despite communication problems. Good value for money.

A fantastic hotel with very cool room.....
With a nice swimingpool. The hotel is near the lake and from the fance you can see the buffalos having a bath. Its about 1hour drive from yala park. The breakfast ist quite good but the menu has not much to choose.

An exquisite, low-key "resort" (it actually has only about 5 or 6 "cabanas" in total.) Set among beautifully kept gardens, next to a lake you can walk around, watch local fishermen, buffalo and other wildlife, do some ad-hoc birdwatching (kingfishers abound in the flower meadows alongside). The quality of the food emerging from the kitchen was amazing (two of the three of us are veggie). The pool is small, with little bridge going over it - very picturesque. The place is down a series of little tracks away from the town of Tissa(maharama) - about three quarters of a mile to a mile away - so it will ideally suit peace & quiet lovers (like us). Cabanas were large, beautifully and tastefully furnished, with everything provided. Extremely well-priced too. Staff are quiet and unassuming, very helpful despite struggling a bit with English.

The hotel is a bit far away from Tissa so you need to take a taxi or a tuk tuk to get there. The hotel itself is great. The cabins are spacious and clean. The food is good and the service exactly as it should be. I stayed at the hotel for two nights and had a great time.

Stayed here for two nights in one of their lovely cabanas.

This hotel is situated a little out of town but it is in a lovely location next to the lake. The water level was quite high when we were there so you couldn't do a lot of walking next to the lake but the birdlife was superb with lots of Sri Lanka's typical waterside species to be seen and it was great to watch the farmer herding his water buffalo. It was also very nice to walk around the nearby footpaths.

The rooms are large, comfortable and well maintained.

The meals were generally good. The staff are very helpful although not a lot of english is spoken and they all work hard to keep things spotlessly clean. There is a nice little pool.

The hotel is a little difficult to find and is not the most centrally located hotel in Tissa. However, this has it's advantages as it is very quiet with the lake right behind the hotel (we actually saw water buffalos bathing in the lake!). The rooms are big and new with all the amenities required. The pool is also a great place to relax after long days at the safari and the actual garden is lovely. Our main reason for staying in Tissa was for the safari at Yala and our hosts were able to put us in contact with a safari company, which is the best way to organise your safari. In our opinion, we received fair rates and our driver had good knowledge of the animals. The hosts were attentive and really did try to help out in any way they could although speaking English was not their strong point so it was sometimes a little difficult to communicate. The food which was served both for breakfast and at dinner was really tasty. They have a wide variety of choices on the dinner menu and we ended up preferring our meal with the hotel than in town. Overall we had a great stay as it was very relaxing and perfect for our main purpose of going to Yala for the safari.
