I absolutely loved this hotel! I chose it after reading the many excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and I was not disappointed. The cabanas are huge with elegant but simply furnished bedrooms complete with fridge, a/c and fan. The bathroom is well equipped with indoor bathtub and shower as well as the gorgeous outdoor shower. Although the end of the bathroom is open to the elements, by which I mean the rain, mosquitoes can't come in because of the mesh. Every cabana has a lovely tranquil patio.
The food was delicious with lots of choice, service was great. As other contributors have said it was very wet in December so we didn't get to use the lovely pool and yes, the paths were very wet and muddy.
The location is truly beautiful, very rural with rice paddies, lovely little houses and an abundance of birdlife. Just go through the gates and turn left or right to find yourself deep in the Sri Lankan countryside.
All the staff were friendly and professional. Check in was speedy and we were greeted with a welcome drink. We were also provided with a welcome fruit platter in our room. All in all this was an excellent choice of hotel to visit the nearby sites of Dambulla, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa. However there was no wifi so I'm only giving this hotel 4 stars as a result.
