I have visited this place with two more friends. Its a great experience to stay in a tree house with nature at its best. Night was awsome. You can see the Sigiriya rock a few hundred meters away from your balcony. Food was excellent, really friendly staff. You can wake up in the morning by listening to songs by many...

We had the most amazing experience for our entire Sri Lanka trip in the Thick Forrest. The room was remarkably clean, we ate the most delicious rice and curry and the manager was exceptionally nice. Customer service is still something non existent in most parts of Sri Lanka, but we were treated like royals in the Thick Forrest. The feeling...

The tree house stink, full of humidity, no amenities, full of insects, and its DIRTY, we had a horrible experience, and had to leave to another hotel as it was impossible to sleep in there. The pictures give u a wrong impression, unless u like to sleep in tents and in the wildness don't go for this hotel.
