What an incredible place with wonderful people. The grounds are a one of a kind art installation. Beautifully landscaped and so creatively decorated, with elements from the natural surroundings. This place is a work of art. It is near to Yala and the temple. The hosts Munasin…

What an amazing place, I’m a really beautiful location. Relaxing by the river felt incredibly serene and like the authentic Sri Lanka wilderness. The host organised an amazing safari for us at very competitive prices. I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Sri Lan…

Ajith and Carla have created a eco resort that was a pleasure to relax in. They were very helpful organising tour, tuk tuks (100R pp to town) and temple trip. The swim in the holy Menik river was fabulous, and Ajith took us on a wonderful half day safari to Yala. Request to get t…

Thank you for your review, we are happy that you appreciate our Eco lodge and surrounding. The dinner price includes the full menu, drinks and dessert with all tax included. Guests have all time free water. Our meals are cooked in a traditional method and most of ingredients are well selected and organic. On our Safari we go (and we do it always) from Kataragama gate an alternative and second entrance to avoid the 100/200jeeps from the Tissa main entrance. Actually 20 jeeps are not to many in a top high season. Unfortunately we are not alone in the park, so could be moments that we see also other tourists and jeeps and we try always to avoid the traffic jam and always trying to find new and less crowded trails in the park. In the safari if you didn't want to see the leopard you just can inform the guide/driver to go another directions and not to find the leopard, because most of the guest want to spot them.
