Bronwyn P. Families with older children Singapore, June 20, 2014
Basic accommodation good location

location to attractions, quiet, isolated
We booked two tree houses and were travelling with our two children (14 and 10 years). Tree house rooms basic and nothing for children to do on site. The novelty of sleeping in a tree house wore off quickly. This accommodation is probably better suited for couples, singles, as there is a nice area to sit and chat, drink wine and enjoy the quiet bush setting and Lion Rock . There are defined tracks to houses but is a track in the shrubbery no lighting. Bring head torches for better vision. Fan did stopped working after ten minutes but we had a lovely breeze which kept the temperature down and rocked the tree house gently. Bring books, cards etc if you need entertainment at night. There was driver accommodation and meals if you are travelling with a hire car. Our host, Nadala, was friendly, helpful and cooked a lovely dinner and breakfast. You need to pay extra for water and if not at meal times pay for coffee. Excellent location to Lion Rock and Minneriya National Park which were both wonderful experiences.

Amazing views from your own treehouse

Friendly and Attentive staff, Great food, Quiet surroundings
We stayed at The Thick Forest for 2 nights in March, the treehouse iteself had amazing views from the windows and balcony of Lion Rock and was comfortable given that it was perched up in a tree. The treehouse had basic amenities which was to be expected. The walk to Sigiriya Rock from here was about 15 minutes through a well trodden path through the forest. The highlight of our stay here was the friendly staff, Ajith went out of his way to ensure we received excellent service, arranging a trip to the national park as well as cooking up a storm in the kitchen. His traditional Sri Lankan dinners and breakfasts were a real treat. Although priced a little higher than eating outside the accommodation the quality of the food all locally and freshly sourced and cooked was worth every rupee. We would stay here again and recommend to other couples and travellers who enjoy peaceful surroundings in the middle of nature.

For the adventurous traveller

Close to nature, friendly staff, good breakfast
The stay in one of the four tree-houses of the property was definitely one to remember as it was quite a novel experience. While the location and setting is very innovative, one should be prepared for a very basic room, no frills but clean and comfortable. Good preventive arrangements were made for mosquitoes and insects which was our major concern. The staff was extremely helpful and cooperative, there was a nice welcome drink and the breakfast was good. All said and done, will recommend this place only to the slightly bold or adventurous traveller!
