We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in this lovely hotel. Amazing surroundings, great wildlife. Staff were excellent. Fantastic. Bedrooms, were large although the bathroom was somewhat tired, so were the towels.

While we enjoyed our stay we found the rooms a bit dated from when we stayed here 3 years back I would recommend opting for a deluxe suite or villa as the superior rooms are not as luxurious

                Beautiful place for relaxing, plenty space in between small cottages ”
                Took so long for check in and staff were trying to get signatures of all guests in the group which consumes more time rather than just getting the signature of person who book the rooms. However place was fantastic as it situated in a rural land and ampule space to walk or jog. Nice lake near by and very relaxing. Staff very friendly. Buffet can be a bit pricy compared to local restaurants around for more authentic local experience. Safari can be organised to the national park near by. Price we got was super cheap and can’t fault anything really. Room was clean and super big.

                I was very very surprised to note the monkeys within the hotel boundaries and specially the "faeces" (monkey shit) everywhere (on the walk ways, on roofs, roofs, everywhere) and the singe was nasty. Further, the trees near the pool (royal palm) was infested with parrots at night and morning their droppings were evident near the pool and in the pool and the combination of the two smells made us loose our appetite. This is s very serious health hazard and the management has to look into this as if animal faeces gets into a wound, or digested while in the pool, it can be deadly. The hotel is fabulous no doubt but the serious health issue should be addressed immediately.

                Beautiful hotel, rammed full of very large and boisterous coach partiies”
                This is a beautiful property in a very good location. However it caters to very, very large coach parties. 250+ coach party guests when we stayed. All of whom arrive on masse. The buffet was reminiscent of queuing for school diners, and there were insufficient staff to manage the number of loud and boisterous guests. The limited selection at breakfast unsurprisingly catered for guests from China - based on the clientele. If you can put up with screaming children, chaos and a holiday camp atmosphere this is the very place for you! Such a shame as the hotel rooms, built as villas in serene grounds with a rural setting are well thought out and spacious. Also be aware if you book a room with a balcony there is no Tudor furniture so you cannot sit out due to the large troops of naughty monkeys terrorizing the place!

                The garden rooms are quaint and fit the lakeside and grounds which are lovely however probably time they modernised their bathrooms. We arrived late one evening for the buffet and some of the waiters (not all) made their displeasure very obvious. Not quiet the very warm welcome we received from the other hotels on our tour.

                After 10 days of guest houses, this was a treat for the whole family. The grounds are beautiful! My daughter loved chasing the monkeys around the property. It is wise to heed the resort's recommendation to keep items off your balcony; the monkeys are very sneaky (but cute!) The pool and food were also fabulous and the staff were friendly and attentive. The resort is a good base to see highlights of the cultural triangle.

                Nicely kept grass with scattered trees mostly Kumbuk (Terminalia arjuna) trees. Huge garden with Jogging and cycling track overlooking lake and Tree houses. This classic hotel managed by Cinnamon is better than newly built so called Eco friendly hotels which serves low quality food.

                We managed to see Dambulla Caves, Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, an afternoon safari at Minireya/ Kaudulla and Polonuwara using this hotel as a base. The rooms were good - ours had a huge balcony, but we didn't actually use this as there were monkeys around and I'm terrified of them! The pool area was clean and well managed, with a good pool bar service. The restaurant was the best we have come across in all the 8 hotels we stayed at (including compared to the Anantara resort in Tangalle) - the variety of food, change in menu each day and the amazing desserts are amongst the best we have come across in our travels. The staff were extremely friendly, stopping to chat and remembering specific likes. The only downside (if one could call it that) was the slightly slower service in the coffee lounge and the lack of entertainment in evenings. However this did not affect us as we were using the hotel as a touring base and had early starts so did not really miss any entertainment.

                There are just too many details that do not justify the rates this hotel charges. It is a beautiful set up, large and comfortable rooms, great pool, nice restaurant and bar. However, staff is poorly trained and not able to deliver the quality service you would expect from such a hotel (worst experience was a cat in the bar that jumped on my table when having dinner. Bar staff thought it was funny, I was disgusted). Overall, food is decent, location is alright, rooms are nice. Too pricy for what you get though.

                Hesha and chef have spoilt us with their outstanding service”
                This has been one of the top 3 world hotel holiday experiences we've ever had! So much so that we stayed in Aliya resort in Sigirya afterwards for double the price but the only thing we wanted was to cancel the latter and come back to your property!!! Hesha from housekeeping deserves a promotion for his outstanding service and the chef spoilt us with his efficiently baked gluten free bread and muffins without sugar to match with all my dietary requirements! Vino has also been outstanding as I kept receiving the water and ginger lemon and mint I needed to follow my Ayurvedic treatment and the inter team communication followed up on the water I needed: I have never been so generously spoilt even though my husband loves 5-star hotels: you remain unmatched so far! Thank you so very much indeed for one of the most relaxing benevolent trees and animals setting(too bad we couldn't enjoy the nice balcony because of the traumatic monkey invasion!)& congratulations for the outstanding service!

                October/low season prices make this resort such a great deal, exhausted from traveling around Sri Lanka this was a nice treat. The rooms are stunning, although my bathroom door didn't open properly. Amazingly comfy bed, HBO on TV, great patios, wonderful pool, and fabulous if not expensive breakfast. Just eat enough to let it pass for two meals

                Breath takingly beautiful. Saw a herd of elephants at the savanna at hotel. Gorgeous spa. Very good head and foot massage. Didn't want to leave. Kids loved the pool. Very well designed. Buffet was great. We just paid for each meal and it was really reasonable. They didn't charge for the kids, aged 3 and 5. Service slow. A la carts menu not great for children and buffet doesn't start until 7.30 which can prove tricky for kids used to eating early.
