Nice place with good access to Yala. We went on a friend's recommendation. A lovely quiet spot with beautiful buildings and restaurant area, but we thought for the money we stayed in other places in Sri Lanka that offered slightly more. We stayed only 1 night (and it could be an anomaly) but the dinner was okay (not outstanding), the bikes were often being used by others and there was no one around to ask if there were any more. Outside of this, friendly staff and very chilled place to stay.

Beautiful hotel located right on the river in Kataragama. Staff was very friendly and greeted me with a smile. This is a family owned hotel and they treat their guest like family. I highly recommend eating dinner at the hotel. The food was delicious and the atmosphere in the dining area was nice. They helped me set up a full day safari in Yala National Park complete with breakfast, lunch and an experienced guide. The guide worked hard to track down leopards in the park

Really great place to stay. They organised a safari for us which was amazing. Saw elephants, bears and leopards! Only thing to beware of is that the location is hard to find if you don't come from kataragama. Dinner is also available on request at $10

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you appreciate our natural Eco lodge and our responsible safari. We are located out of the main road, 3 km from the town, that's why it's a special spot out of the main touristic area. Hope you enjoyed our traditional meals cooked on the wooden fire in our unique restaurant area. Hope you come back again one day. B regards
