we managed to find Kalu's Hideaway (KH) whilst looking for a last minute family holiday for 3 days.we chose it after the positive feedback from friends and family. the hotel is very close to Udawalawe national park and you can get one of the cabs to come and pick you from the hotel itself when you want to go on safari.
think one of the strengths KH has is, its staff, Chandana and the team managed to make our stay very comfortable as nothing was too much of a hassle for them. there were few draw backs. i was in the new wing of the hotel and was given a room, which i would say fairly recently built. but it started to leak on the first night from the roof.( have to say it rained pretty heavily) they didn't have much of an option due to the hotel been fully booked..it didn't rain the 2nd night so it was fine. the outside garden is pretty relaxing and well kept. think their strengths in culinary skills are with Sri Lankan Cuisine and they did a good job at it. I will definitely visit this hotel if I go to this area, and i hope the issues with rooms will be sorted and the one of the plus points would be the friendly atmosphere and the staff who made the difference..kalu well done..loved the entrance and seeing a bit of cricketing history...best wishes for the Chandana and the Team as well...Ranga Sovis
