Lake Serenity Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 17 Ratnapura B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 November 2017

For nature lovers, which any visitor to Sri Lanka must be, this hotel combines a botanic farm, tea plantation and a nearby Gems mine. Service is attentive and personal, closely overseen by the resident GM. The property has an inviting swimming pool. We have stayed in a so called Chalet, which was specious and well maintained. As commented before - food has a room for improvement.

overall - a nice place to stay as a base for exploring the area.

It was one day of our honeymoon selected to spend in a nature friendly place. We were enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere well and the little lake was very attractive with mist embraced us of cold winds.
We think it is better if they can develop some yummy menus as the meal offered us not matched each other .
Also we are not happy about the final checking outs and management should consider more about the comfort of the guests.

The lake and surroundings are beautiful, as are the individual villas for the most part. Food is pretty good, but not amazing. Unfortunately, my stay was spoiled by the very low doorway into the bathroom. I managed to crack my head off it 3 times in a single night stay, which rather dampens one's appreciation of the other more positive aspects of the place. I believe the layout of each villa is different, but if you are more than 5'6" avoid the one named Tiger Eye.

Room Tip: Avoid Tiger Eye villa unless you are short.

The name it self describes the hotel very well. 'Serenity' it is! Located surrounded by a tea and rubber plantations and a beautiful man made lake and with calm, relaxing atmosphere in the garden.
Access roads are also in very good condition and hotel site is easy to locate.
We were warmly welcomed at the hotel entrance and a buggy car is there for us to get to the inner hotel area where the rooms are located.
Staff were really nice and helpful.
We used the pool and you can watch the beautiful sun set from there as well.
We were on half board basis hence went to get the dinner at restaurant by the lake. Food was tasty and the service was good too. However we had the breakfast in our room.
They are maintaining an in house farm where you can see the traditional methods of farming. We were taken there by the hotel manager him self and explained everything very gently.
We were totally satisfied on our stay and I recommend this to anyone who are seeking for a relaxing holiday..!!!
