The owners did a great job in making a beautiful hotel that captures the natural setting. It was probably one of best stays in Sri Lanka. The staff was as helpful as they could be and organized our trip to visit elephants and Pollonnaruwa and car service to our next destination. They are trying to get 5-star status and maybe...

We were lucky to have booked the single rooms during non peak days. Super clean, tidy, super service. While we were one group of the very few people who were staying here, we got the best service possible. We even sat next to the CEO and he asked for some feedback from us. Being close to three fantastic parks, this...

Visited here with a group of friends. Everyone seemed very set on making sure we had a good time, which got a bit much at times but didn't spoil the stay New Years Eve dinner was extraordinary. The grounds were beautiful. The room needed a bit of love but were comfortable. All in all a happy experience.

stopped over for Lunch. Meals were sub standard and we noticed that the serviced did not come from their heart. Could give a 5 Star for cleanliness though Scenic location near the tank and not very far to the wild life par if you wish to see elephants.
