“Peaceful, relaxing and unique”
Reviewed 19 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Absolutely fabulous. Lived up to expectations and the good reviews. Very warm welcome. Great service from the staff. Fab plunge pool to cool down in after a day out. Lovely rural location, great to escape the tourist treadmill. Food is fab, perhaps a little pricey, but so delicious and it's quite special having a personal chef! The open air sleeping deck is a unique experience, and worth booking for this alone. Would come again and would recommend to others.

“Beautifull house with pool in which you are taken care off.”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Far Cry lies a little remote (15-20 min from main road) but provides a unique house with pool. House looks even better at night (as the photo shows). The surrounding is peaceful and green. Staff is very helpful and prepares terrific meals. You will feel home from the first moment.

“Wonderful accommodation, superb setting”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Cultural Triangle. Although it is a little way out of town it was prefect, the most wonderful setting and close to nature.
Yohann, the owner was incredibly helpful and was available to help organise tours and transfers.
The staff at the house were very friendly and cooked the most amazing Sri Lankan meals for us. Truly some of the best food we have had in Sri Lanka! Amazing!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I can highly recommend it!

“Idyllic home away from home with Mother Nature ...!”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were visiting from Singapore and our stay at Far Cry was absolutely fantastic. The bungalow blends so well with its natural surroundings and has all the creature comforts offered with discreetness, class and a deep harmony with the natural beauty of it's surroundings. Shanta and his colleague were excellent and we are very grateful for the way they looked after us.
Thank you Yohan and Manjari for the opportunity to experience such a wonderful place!

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in May 2015

Second visit of us for 2 days. Wish I could have stayed longer. One of the best nature retreats I have ever stayed. Cant beat the taste of Shantha's food, the cook, care taker...etc. one of the nicest human beings ever met. Will visit soon again. And Thank you Yohann for maintaining the true essence of the place.
