This is a small hotel with only 20 rooms, but it is on an enormos property. The rooms are small bungalows, so the rooms are huge. The bathroom are very big. All bungalows have a terrace and it is magic to sit and lissen to all the animals sound when the sun us setting. The staff are friendly and the reception area is open. On the drawback it is at least 500 meter to walk to the swimming pool and spa. The spa close at 5 pm. You can be driven around be a small electric car. The restaurant is very small, and the menu is not large, but the food is tasteful. This is a nice place for some nights if you shall visit Sigriya ore Dambulla and the hotel concept is good.

We booked the suite for two nights, but checked out in one night as it was an overall disappointing stay. The rooms needs repairs and maintanance, the private pool had insects and animals in it, the food meanwhile was very limited in choice. It's a fantastic concept and property but not refurbished or maintained.

I stayed at the elephant corridor one night only. The room was fantastic, huge with a private pool, which made the return from the rock climb a real refreshing and great experience. Food is not that great however, and also the reception area would need some improvements and restoration. Staff was super friendly and helpful in organizing everything. Thanks again for having made a special Christmas to me.

Room Tip: I stayed in room MJ which is the farest from the common areas…sometimes a real deal

We went on a family trip and stayed in two super deluxe rooms. The hotel concept, the view, the rooms and activities on offer were great. The rooms are extremely spacious and the room amenities were great. The ability to cycle around the hotel and through the surrounding jungle is brilliant. All staff were extremely helpful and courteous. However the following needs to be fixed-
1. Food was horrendous-out of the 6 meals we had 3 were extremely poor. The Sri Lankan cuisine was quite nice however the western dishes that were on offer were below par. A Thai red curry chicken was served with rice for dinner which was nowhere near what Thai cuisine is like. We later found that most of the hotel guests had complained over this meal. Food is served a la carte and there is not much choice. If you have planned excursions during the day maybe opt for half board and have lunch elsewhere.
2. Room amenities- mini bar only contained water and we had to order drinks separately which defeats the purpose of the mini bar.
3. Cable tv-most channels can't be watched due to poor reception. This should be fixed or remove the tv's.
4. Wifi is only available in the lobby and dining area. With the price that we pay, I expected to have wifi access to rooms.

I sincerely hope that the above is fixed as it is a great place to relax and visit the surrounding areas. Also it is an extremely secluded and private place to relax with family and friends.
Room tip-all rooms are huge and comes with a plunge pool so it doesn't really matter what room you choose.

As for Cable TV and wi-fi access, despite our theme of going with nature, we do try our best to ensure that our guests are provided with every convenience. Therefore, we keep dongles at the reception which the guests can request for and use free of charge for internet access. We also advised our staff to have a look at the cable TV connection in your suite.

We are always looking for areas in which to improve and greatly appreciate your comments.

We hope to see you again in the future. Until then, please keep in touch with us via our Facebook page.
