The most beautiful hotel we stayed at during our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, literally cannot fault. The location is a bit far out, but there's still a lot to do whilst there. We purely stayed here for Yala (safari arranged by hotel), but they kept us entertained for the entire stay (dinner is also amazingly tasty, so say yes to that ($10)). Stayed in a family room, which was HUGE. The couple who run the hotel are so so nice, and they also have the cutest dog!
Owner guided our driver on the phone. Upon arrival we got help carry our bags, tea and coffee and a friendly chat. Booked safari via the lodge. Dinner was superb, lots of traditionally cooked vegetarian food and fresh juices. Next morning we got coffee and tea before heading for safari at 5.30. The place is very beautiful, owner super helpful and friendly. Only minus would be the very slow Wi-Fi, wasn't able to book a place for our next destination.
