10/10 Exceptional

The staff made me feel welcome and safe from the moment I arrived. They organised for me to share a morning safari with another couple who were staying there - this way we all saved money and it’s better for the environment. I really appreciated this! Our guide for the Safari “Parera” was fantastic! He made sure we were the second Jeep in the park, and drive quickly but safely and professionally. He knew many species of animal and always stopped for everything. He could spot a gecko on a tree ten metres away! When we reached the end of our safari we found a mother and baby elephant having a mud bath. It was so beautiful and we watched for so long even though we went over time - Parera called the hotel and made sure they waited for us to return so we could have breakfast and watch the elephants for longer. Thank you so much Parera!

Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We absolutely loved the outdoor bathroom. The fish massage, pool and gardens make it a very relaxing stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to please guests. We enjoyed the idea of the outside bathroom, but there were thousands of ants. The grounds were lovely as well. Restaurant is okay but I loved the special "date night" tables they had

2/10 Poor

They may give your room away!
We booked 2 months in advance and had been in contact with resort in the weeks leading up to our trip. When we arrived, we were told they didn’t have our booked room available as the had double booked it. They offered a tent, which we didn’t want as we had been camping up to this point and wanted closed walls to keep insects out. They weren’t apologetic at all and we found a different place to stay as a result. We wouldn’t book again. Poor customer service. Lack of consideration for plans around travel. And we found out later that they overcharge for safaris. So we are glad we didn’t end up with them.

Basic accommodation set in nice grounds with two decent swimming pools. Go for the poolside rooms if you want to stay here. This property also can organise jeep safaris to the Udawalawe park. Email the hotel to organise this ahead of time, we’ll worth it. Did 6 hour tour with breakfast, guide was excellent. Saw dozens of elephants. Much better than Yala for elephant and other wildlife spotting (did an 8 hr trip to Yala the next day and saw almost nothing as the forest is so dense at times and overcrowded with noisy jeeps)

Fun experience in the tents!
We only had 1 night here, to do 2 safaris at Udawalawe National Park. Hotel organised us the safaris very easily, around 20 mins drive away from the park but it is fun travelling in the Jeep. We stayed in the permanent tents, which was really fun and added to the safari feel! Tents were fine, have aircon and mosquito nets. Nice pool areas and restaurant was fine for food and beers.
