Glaming at it's best!”
Athgira was the perfect spot for our family of 5 (we had 2 tents, 3 kids in one tent, 2 adults in the other) mainly because of the pool which was welcome relief after our safari. There is not much to do in the town so 1 or 2 nights is enough. We did 4 nights and got a little bored. We enjoyed 2 1/2 safaris (one in the morning and one in the afternoon on a different day which was super interesting to see different animals) and a visit to the elephant rescue home. The highlight of Athgira was the STAFF - such a dedicated group of lovely people who went out of their way to make sure our family was comfortable.

Over-hyped 'camping' experience”
Not bad, but not worth the detour. They really overcharge for their BBQ, which is the only dinner option. Pool was nice though.

Glamping in the jungle ”
The fabulous 'tent' accommodation, pool,
I think this place is really underrated. The luxury tents are gorgeous and are spotlessly clean with a good bathroom and comfy beds. It's really glamping and a great place to stay pre safari. There's a river at the bottom and I saw a 3' ling monitor lizard creeping around it- my first sign of wildlife! The pool is fab but needs about 5 X as many sun loungers for the number of residents! Also a loungey area to mingle would be nice as otherwise everyone sits quite far from each other in the restaurant at night. The hotel organised a superb safari for the next morning on my arrival in very luxurious jeeps and I had a good guide and saw lots of elephants and wildlife. I'd recommend this place. The company also have another hotel called Athgira River Hotel and this is also lovely with very luxurious rooms and a nice pool. It's right opposite the Elepgant orphanage which is very handy and worth a visit to see cute little baby elephants at feeding time.

Manager and organisation no good”
They make overbooking and send you in other hotel with price lower and dirty and don't refund the money. Don't book this hotel they have organization to take your money

River Camping”
The Staff , The manager was a nice man, he enjoyed a good laugh
Ideal for a nights stay, rooms are comfortable not amazing. Everything is organised easily. Bbq,safari,private car onwards...no problem. Felt as though they made a healthy profit without charging a fortune. Watched the river rise with the afternoon rain and never saw a mosquito . Maybe the time of year or just lucky . Park was nice too .

Clamping in style.”
1. Location near to Udawalawae National Park 2. Breakfast down by the river 3. The swimming pool.
We arrived around 7 p.m. in the dark, the last 80 kms of our journey by tuc tuc which ran out of fuel on the way. Directions to this place are actually 4 km away at a restaurant of the same name/ownership. They at least provided a motorbike guide to help otherwise you would never find it. Our booking had not been received as the internet was down. That's all the negatives, thereafter we were treated wonderfully, a tent was found overlooking the river, dinner served by the recently opened swimming pool and arrangements made to go on Safari the next morning. The food is excellent we had Cuury & Rice washed down with Lion larger. The following morning at 05.45 we were served tea before our guide took us on the most amazing Safari into Udawalawe National Park, returning to the campsite around 9.30 a.m. We were ushered down to the river to our table for two, complete with tablecloth, exotic fruit platter and chilled juice. Cooked omelette followed with Ceylon tea / coffee and toasts including a local coconut roti. Just fabulous. We spent the morning in the pool, the best in Sri Lanka, swimming under the shade of Palm trees before checking out to visit the Elephant Transit Hospital. If you like camping then you will love this place, if you don't like bugs and insist on air conditioning then book elsewhere!
