This was the first stop on our Sri Lanka tour and ended up probably being the best hotel we visited. We stayed in one of their chalet style bungalows which had a huge main room, very comfortable bed and an excellent modern bathroom. The location was great for us to visit the ancient cities but also benefitted from being in a nice quiet, rural location by a lake so we also got our first experience of Sri Lankan wildlife with chipmunks, monkeys and monitor lizards on view at breakfast. The whole complex was of a very high standard with a great pool and the service was excellent with very friendly staff, who spoke very good English.
The real highlight though, was the food which was simply outstanding (and the best we had on our holiday!) A fantastic variety of local curries and international options which were all very good with lots of variety and lots of fresh cooked dishes like rottis and naans. Our only criticisms were that it was a slightly long walk from our chalet to the dining room (was was made worse by the rain when we were there) but this is very trivial!
