            Great hotel, great location”

            Our family stayed at Ekho Safari Tissa for two nights and had a wonderful time. The staff were very helpful (especially the lady at the front desk named Geetha) and accommodating to our needs - we have 2 small children plus a baby. They helped arrange a safari for us and answered all our questions patiently. The rooms were clean and spacious and there was more than enough room for the extra bed for our kids. The food was quite good, especially the supper buffet. However, the lunch 'a la carte' options weren't fantastic - not a lot of choice and a little pricey. The only other negative was that there is no elevator...so we had to carry our stroller up the stairs to the second floor where we were staying. Otherwise, a beautiful location, very helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms and an overall great experience! Would recommend and would go back again if we had the chance.

            Great hotel close to Yala”

            Lake view, swimming pool, luxury feel

            The Safari Hotel is a new modern hotel, right by the lake at Tissamarahama. Our room was spacious, modern and very comfortable, with two comfy chairs as well as bed, and a very luxurious-feel bathroom, with a great shower. Check-in was straightforward, and cold towels and a welcome drink were a nice touch. Breakfast was a good buffet, and we also had the buffet dinner one night, which was fantastic. For lunch one day we ordered sandwiches from the a la carte menu, and these were also good - all served on the terrace overlooking the pool and lake. Staff were largely very friendly and helpful - sorting out laundry, etc. My only complaints are regarding the ineffeciency of check-out: this seemed to require a cashier to create our bill, and took a good 10 minutes. There was then an error (as mini bar charges were not included), and this took another 10 minutes to amend. There was also some confusion over a packed breakfast, which we thought we had ordered for the day we left at 5am for the safari. The confusion may (or may not) have been our fault, but at 5am the two members of staff at reception were unable to help at all - despite us suggesting they could maybe just give us some cartons of juice or pastries (which they must have had in for the main breakfast buffet). Language may have been the issue, but it was frustrating not to be able to take anything with us, considering the level of service the hotel offered at other times, The hotel also didn't offer safaris direct, which meant we had to arrange this via independent jeep owners who hovered at the hotel gates - seemed like a missed opportunity for the hotel to offer guests something direct, which would have been a bit more reassuring than handing money over to someone on the street (though the company we went with - Ruwan Safaris were excellent). All in all - a great place to stay within easy reach of Yala. The pool and sunbeds by the lake was a wonderful place to relax for an afternoon.

            An excellent stay!The aesthetic of this place is great, especiallyu when you take into consideration the price compared to other continents. The rooms were comfortable, the staff very helpful and accommodating. We were leaving for a safari at 5am and they packed us a breakfast to take away. Anything we needed, they'd bring to our room. Buffet was delicious, the chef was making egg hoppers to order! Not far from Yala national park where we had the best safari! Would highly recommend this hotel.

            Very comfortable, location good for safari at Yala”

            One night stay, to do a morning safari at Yala National Park. The hotel booked our safari for us (at very short notice) and provided an excellent packed breakfast. Lovely location, with views over the lake. Not much around the area but the main sights in Tissa were walkable. 45 mins drive to the Park. The buffet in the restaurant is very good and great value for money (the a la carte menu, slightly less so). Staff very helpful, although communication between them could be a little better. Pool nice, although seemed like it should have had more water in it. The room itself was very comfortable and one of the more luxurious we had during our trip (albeit one of the more expensive). We had the best night’s sleep in 16 nights here! This place was recommended by a friend and I would recommend to others.

            Hi Leila, Thank you for taking time to review your wonderful stay at EKHO Safari. We are thrilled to read that you enjoyed your stay and that you had the best nights sleeping 16 days here and that the food and that the rooms were good. Your concerns regarding the pool and the staff are duly noted. We do look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you again if your travels bring you back to Sri Lanka. We can definitely plan out a more extensive itinerary as well to see more of the country. Best Wishes, the EKHO Safari team

            Good: I booked two rooms for two nights with my parents and my son. The hotel is by the Tissa Lake. And both of my rooms have the fantastic lake view. Even we could see the birds' nests on the trees on the island. The housekeeper and the manager of the kitchen were kind and friendly. The hotel is clean and beautiful. The hotel is very near Yala National Park. If you don't want to get up very early, it's a good choice. Bad: The shower room is blocked in one room of the two. The telephone is out of service. If we wanted to talk to the housekeeping and the reception, we had to walk to the reception. The executive of housekeeping said the problems couldn't be solved.

            The Safari at Tissa is conveniently located close to Yala National Park and 'Katharagama'. Can be a great resting place for long distance travellers. Rooms and wash rooms are clean and staff is really attentive and friendly. I will recommend The Safari for anyone going to Tissa.

            Enjoyable Stay”

            My parents and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The view overlooking Tissa Lake was peaceful backdrop. The staff was extremely friendly and hard working, as was the guest manager, Udesh who made sure our stay was pleasant each day. The food was good and had also gone to the spa weigh was a relaxing time. Ekho also has hotels in Polonaruwa (Lake House) in which we had had lunch prior to arriving in Tissa. There too the hotel is situated overlooking the tank which is beautiful and had a pleasant lunch there. The guest manager, Kanchana was very friendly. I recommend either of these hotels as a nice place to relax and unwind.

            Excellent property”

            Stayed here for two nights in January 2019 Pros: 1) This is an excellent property at a great location. It is right beside the picturesque Tissa Lake and is a short walk from the Tissa and Sandagiri stupas. The decor is excellent and the front lobby, dining and pool area are very spacious and tastefully done. 2) The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and extremely clean. 3) The staff is very courteous. 4) The front desk was very helpful and helped with all our travel needs and spoke reasonably good English. 5) The food was very good and tasty. Breakfast spread is excellent. 6) The hotel prepares packed breakfast/lunch for safari. 7) The WiFi speed and connectivity was excellent. 8) There are enough places to eat around the hotel and it is a 15 minute walk to the town. 9) We used the hotel laundry and the service was good and we got our cloths back on time. 10) The place is extremely quiet at nights and the sleep quality is great. Cons 1) Vegetarian dinner choices were limited.

            Good hotel, quite fancy”

            Stayed here to visit Bundulla and Yala. It's an upmarket hotel, with all the mod-cons. Bathrooms were huge and the best that I had in all of Sri Lanka. Swimming pool was a bit heavy on the chlorine, but the deck area and the lake views were incredible. Would definitely recommend. Note that it's a fair hike into town (Tissa) if you want groceries or a wider choice of food. It's walkable though (and definitely go the long way around the lake - that's beautiful), or else take a tuktuk (there are many available).

            The room, delicious lunch buffet, good location for access to Yala National Park.

            Only there for one night but would have stayed longer. Our room was just lovely; clean, comfortable and all that a room should be! The food was fantastic, staff friendly, and the entire facility felt very safe. We enjoyed a safari at Yala National Park. Knowing we would be returning after check out we proceeded to check out before we left; kindly, the staff granted us a late check out for FREE! They were incredibly accommodating. Although it is a quite normal for drivers to be given a place to sleep for the night, we had not let them know in advance and they were still more than happy to ensure that he was also taken care of. I would recommend this hotel without reservation.

            Extremely helpful staff especially the reception manager who helped us arrange taxi to Bentota as well as Safari. Lovely pool, great Sinhalese trio music, nice breakfast. Room comfortable, everything we needed, balcony overlooking lake. No trouble mosquitos (great surprise). Wi-fi signal good and fair streaming (not continuous). 5 minute walk to local restaurants. Nothing much else to see in the area, Stupas, but that’s ok local shops, way of life. Great stop Yala Safari.

            Comfortable room, nice lake view and good food

            A convenient location for you to get to Yala National Park, like most other hotels in Tissa. I like the view of the Tissa lake that this hotel has to offer. A short walk from town but still manageable. Good food served at the restaurant. The hotel in general has a chalet/resort feel to it. Very good service from the staff there.

            This hotel is a great spot to stay if you want to do a safari in Yala. We arrived after midday so had to book a safari for the following morning - reception organized it all for us and the driver was fantastic. The pool was lovely and the staff all so friendly. Our only negative was the lack of vegetarian options at the restaurant. There were a couple of extra things on the room service menu we wished we had seen prior. Otherwise a good stay!

            We stayed in this hotel for one night, before taking morning Safari at Yala (5am). Staff is super friendly, food is great (buffet or a la carte) and they pack breakfast when you need to leave early for Safari. Rooms are clean, super good service and very nice view of the lake. Definitively I recommend this place. We traveled with 3 kids (9, 6 and 2 yrs old). Hotel facilities work very well for families.

            We had booked for couple of nights at EKHO safari hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Rooms were very clean and had a good lake facing glass wall. The staff was good, well trained. The lake side sit-outs are the best, serene view, variety of birds. Only down side was : Swimming Pool was not clean, me and my kid had got down, the floor was slippery.

            We staying in the Safari Hotel for 1 night so that we could go to Yala Safari. The hotel was very nice with a nice pool overlooking the lake. Apparently there are Crocodiles in the lake that sometimes come into the hotel area (safely). All of the staff were very helpful and it was easy to arrange the safari with the hotel. The best restaurant in town is also a short 5 minute walk away.

            Some of the best accomodation we have stayed in in Sri Lanka, especially for the price!! Modern decor, room was very big and clean with a hot shower with good water pressure. The buffet dinner was fantastic!! Staff were lovely and very accommodating, we arrived at 10pm and they were still able to organise a safari trip for 5am the next day. Thank you for a wonderful stay, would 100% recommend for anyone wanting to close to Yala national park.

            Food, room, views

            We stayed at this hotel for one night for our safari trip, and our stay was just perfect, the room was nice and clean, amazing views from the room, the food was excellent. They had a set dinner menu for 1000 RP, we didn't expect much but the food was surprisingly more than perfect especially the fish with the garlic butter. The pool was under construction which was a bit frustrating and we wanted to use it before our safari trip, but the staff offered us to use a pool in a different hotel nearby which we didn't do. They should have notified us about this before we arrived. The staff were a little bit inexperienced especially at the restaurant, and they kept watching us all the time to take the empty plates, at times I felt like I had to eat quickly just not keep them standing next to our table. Other than that, the hotel was perfect and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Tissa.

            We were not impressed that reception staff seemed to find the closure of Yala National Park amusing. Nor were we impressed that the pool was closed for maintenance during all of our 4 night stay. Lastly, we were far from impressed with the quality of Ekho Safari Tissa's catering, especially the buffet breakfast and dinner.
