Truly beautiful place

The serene location abundant with wildlife
Jenny M. Groups Australia, December 15, 2012
Just perfect!

The service was outstanding, the location was serene and our rooms were beautiful and spacious.
We stayed here for a couple of nights while we explored the south of Sri Lanka. What a great place to relax. Our villa was perfect - beautifully decorated, spacious and very clean. We ate at the private restaurant, were served tea on the verandah at 5pm and had al a carte breakfast in our room. The food here was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The location was overlooking the Madu River and was very peaceful and the outdoor spa was lovely. The only downside of our stay here was that there was no accommodation for our driver, unlike the bigger and more mainstream resorts however I believe they are addressing this in the near future.

A very special retreat

Tranquil location and colonial style
the river house is a very special holiday retreat. it is in the middle of a green hilly area that overlooks the river. it's very lush and the house is only quite small (5 or 6 rooms i think). when we arrived we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. it was enormous! stylishly decorated but very in keeping with the traditional sri lankan colonial style. the bathroom was equally as large and we had splurged on a jacuzzi room which was a private outdoor space and a lovely indulgence. you are able to kayak on the river or take various trips. the pool, though samll, is perfectly adequate. as ever, in sri lanka, the staff were delightful - nothing too much trouble. the food was a little disappointing.

Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: 因为临湖,观光客乘船颇多,很是嘈闹!
Patrick O. Couples Sweden, April 24, 2011
läckert hotell vid sjö

stora vackra rum
detta hotell ligger en bit från havet men precis vid en sjö som är minst lika fin och faktiskt mycket lugnare att vara vid. Stora vackert inredda rum men inner gård. Hotellet har bara 5 rum så servicen är på topp, tyvärr är inte maten på samma nivå och det är en bra bit att åka till närmaste rest.
