Stayed at Bopath Fall Rock Chalets, Kuruwita for a full board night stay on 30th March 2014 with my wife, and another couple of friends. This was one of the better hotels I have visited considering the overall satisfaction from the stay, and the very low price tag.
This is the closest hotel to the very beautiful Bopath Falls. From Kuruwita town the hotel is located just 3km away, and directions could be found very easily since it is leading towards the famous Bopath Falls. There are many places to visit in Kuruwita area, including ancient cave called Batadombalena which we have visited during our journey.
After the tiresome trek to Batadombalena we arrived at this place, and we were not expecting much from it as we were going for a one night stay on budget, before attending a wedding of a friend at Ratnapura very next day. But we were surprised by the quality of the service received, considering the low price tag, it was really good even when compared to higher rated hotels.
The chalets were nice, clean and they had the basic facilities needed. Most importantly rooms are located in a way that you can enjoy the surrounding nature, as well as the sound of the waterfall. The way they have maintained the large trees in the garden, not cutting them down to get the distance view was one thing I was impressed. You will surely enjoy the nature, and relax while being seated in the balcony area.
The food was another thing that was in higher quality than what was expected. We had three meals from the hotel and all were really tasty. The staff was friendly, talked with us and attended to any matters that we had. They did not treat foreign tourists and local tourists differently.
Apart from all, the most memorable thing there was the early morning walk to Bopath Falls. That was valuable experience to witness the early sunshine at the Bopath Falls, while there is no one at all near you (usually during the day time the Bopath Falls gets crouded). In overall this was a great experience and I would highly recommend this place for you if you are planning to visit Kuruwita area.
