We stayed in Lake Lodge on the 15th and 16th of April and had a relaxed time there. The room was spacious and enjoyed the nice view from the balcony. Our 7 months old baby too had a comfortablea and happy stay. Room was clear and nicely set up. Bathrooms were cool, with the raw look of its architecture. The bed sheets and mosquito net could have been more clearer than expected because of the baby. Anyway it didn't matter because we were prepared with her necessasities.
The food was excellent. Enjoyed natural taste of Sri Lankan fruits and vegetables. I love the candle dinner by the side of the swimming pool, we had. …which was really amazing. Thank you for the great hospitality we had throughout the stay. Though it was quite hot during this period, due to good service and facilities we had a lovely stay. Thank you so much.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Greetings From Lake Lodge Boutique Hotel....!We are kind to inform you that the Lake Lodge Boutique Hotel is now running with a new management from 01st October 2012. The new management was brought this property in February 2012 and after that we were closed for 8 months for renovation of old six rooms and billed new six rooms. We reopened in October 2012. The history of the original structure dates back to the time of the construction of Kandalama hotel in the Early 1990's. The famous Architect Geoffrey Bawa was taken over the area by helicopter to choose a site for the Kandalama hotel. Having preferred the Lake Lodge site, found it too small an area to build the Kandalama hotel. He then recommended his friend Mr Hameed whom he had already designed a boutique hotel for, to acquire this land. The land was subsequently acquired on a long term lease from the government for development.The original plan was to have 20 rooms, however due to constraints caused mainly due to the slump in the tourist industry during the war years; construction began only in 2004 and was stopped at six rooms. Provision was made however for the expansion plan, a large swimming pool constructed, kitchen and restaurant. The original project consisted of 6 large 450 sq ft rooms overlooking the Mihintale hills and dambulla caves. The swimming pool, kitchen and reception area overlook the Kandalama reservoir. The extent of the property is 4 acres. The establishment continues to provide its guest with the highest quality standards in Hospitality service combined with two contrasting yet equally fantastic panoramic views that immediately tends to relax the mind. The dry zone sunset to the west on a clear day is much more spectacular across the sky than from the more humid coast of the Island."Experience Our Worm Hospitality" Thank YouBest Regards, Ranjith P'KumaraManager ... more less
