          Very far from town, uncomfortable stay ”
          Our driver was in lost when finding this hotel. It's very very far from town and there were not enough signs to indicate where the hotel is. Room looks old and facilities were below our expectations. Air-con dripping water on the bed... Staff's services was excellent. Environment around there was good. In short, if u are just looking for a hotel which silent and peace it would be one of your choice. However, if you would travel here and there, then just ignore this hotel.

          Perfect location for adventurers. You can do kayaking, abseiling, birdwatching on the lake. Lizards are walking undisturbed in the park. The food is prepared with vegetables from their organic garden. They also have honeybees, and the person in charge, is always happy to give information about bees, honey etc. The owner is promoting by any means organic farming in his country. If you take this location you will do a perfect choice.

          Excellent location in Yala. Near Tissa lake with nice view. The room is quite clean but recommend the tent which is more comfortable and luxury. We had two dinner in the hotel. We love the rice and noodle very much. The hotel arranged the safari to Yala and lunugamwehera for us. Everything of the safari are well prepared. The boss and staff are very helpful, taught us to recognize plants, birds, fruits, etc. This is a woundful stay in Yala, highly recommend!

          Service, Accommodation, Peacefulness
          Wow, just wow. This place was beautiful, so peaceful, the tents/rooms were so comfortable and luxurious, the restaurant had amazing food and the staff were so friendly and would do anything for you. The only down side was the bad wi-fi signal, however when you stay here it's actually pretty good to be away from the "real world", switch off your phone and enjoy the calm surroundings. The hotel is also very environmentally conscience which is great to see nowadays. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

          Room, services and environment
          Yala adventure 's environment is so great. There are many trees, plants and butterfly garden and a lake. All of these are so natural. The Room clean and tidy. We arrived late because of raining. The manager and staff are kindhearted and warmly. They welcomed us and we felt so warm and happy. We had dinner and tried the Sri Lanka hand pilaf with the manager's guide and introduction, it's traditional and interesting for us. The food and fruits are fresh and the vegetables comes from their own garden. It's really great !!! The most important thing was twe saw the fireflies, it's so amazing in there. The manager named Sameera, he is a very kind person and he like nature, so follow him you can feel and know more about the nature. It's very good choice if you like to close to nature. It's pity we stayed in there only one night...and we have no time to feel every great things in there...and they prepared very great breakfast and picked up for us because we were going to yala national park. We shared our breakfast with other Russia couples and they said we saved them, but I want to say it's our hotel saved them because the breakfast was so abundant! thanks all staff and we will chose yala adventure again if we come to Sri Lanka again.

          nice staff, delicious food, good view and everything.
          The hotel is excellent for everything. 1. located: It's near by Tissa lake, there is a garden where you could see a wild peacock in the afternoon each day. We saw the lizards and different kinds of birds in the garden as well. but staff would notice you close the door & window to avoid animals in. 2. Staff: nice staff, because we need get up at 4:00am to go to Yala Safari, they not only prepare breakfast for us, but also gave us some big bottles of iced fresh juice and water to take away. 3. Food: not close to city centre, we ate dinner in the hotel, spaghetti and fired rice are delicious. 4. Room: clean and comfortable. but please not open the door at night. there are lots of Mosquitoes outside. In a word, It's a excellent experience.

          food
          I traveled alone (female, 33 years) from Colombo up the west coast, through the hill country and the south coast. I stayed in 7 Hotels or guesthouses and I felt good, welcomed and safe throughout my trip. The Yala Adventure Hotel was by far the most extensive place i stayed at and it was unfortunately the only really awkward place. The "service" was just overwhelming, annoying and took away my privacy. I would not recommend this hotel for solo travellers unless you appreciate to be alone, eat alone and feel observed by the staff. The food is good though, the room was clean (but not reply worth the money in my opinion). It is really far away from Tissa and in the middle of nowhere. A tuctuc ride from Tissa costs around 500 rupees.

          The staff, the food and the surroundings
          The place was still being built when we went and we were one of the first guests. Comfortable rooms but a little small and only the top room has nice scenery from the balcony. They have a seating area right at the top of the building which has great views which they set up for us for dinner. The staff was excellent and very well trained and attentive. Meals were excellent value for money. Overall a comfortable stay.

          Estuvimos alojados en una Luxury Tent (tienda de campaña) y fue mejor de lo que esperábamos. Llegamos por la noche cuando la cocina estaba prácticamente cerrada y, aún así, nos sirvieron una cena buenísima y muy variada, nos encantó. Al día siguiente nos despertaron para el safari a las 4.30am y prepararon el desayuno para llevar. La tienda de campaña estaba muy bien acondicionada. Espaciosa, cama grande, aire acondicionado y decorado con gusto. El baño limpio y con una gran ducha y el wifi funcionaba perfectamente. Lo recomiendo totalmente para personas que busquen estar "más ambientadas" en el plan de safari en vez de en un hotel normal. Tiene las mismas prestaciones que un buen hotel pero estando en plena naturaleza.

          La nourriture y est excellente et goûteuse. Un vrai curry Sri lankais avec des ingrédients issus majoritairement du jardin ou de producteurs locaux. Un merveilleux curd frais... tout est bon et frais. Le propriétaire et son équipe sont serviables et accueillants. Le lac accueille de nombreux oiseaux. Le propriétaire est aussi ornithologue et photographe. Prochainement, il va construire une piscine avec vue sur le lac. Un endroit calme et plein de sérénité. L’hôtel propose des activités pour découvrir des pratiques traditionnelles ( pêche, fabrication du curd et du « miel » de fleur de coconut!.)

          l'accueil, la nourriture et le site
          Quelle belle rencontre. Nous étions les seuls voyageurs dans cet hôtel. Le personnel et son manager ont été aux petits soins pour nous : activités d'escalade, tir à l'arc mais surtout des repas extraordinaires. nous avons goûtés des saveurs inconnues. Les légumes sont bio et viennent du jardin. On vous fait cueillir les fruits et vous l'avez dans votre assiette. L’hôtel vient d'ouvrir, la salle de restaurant est en construction et nous avons mangé aux chandelles dans le jardin et le lendemain en haut de la tour. Le site est très beau, au bord du lac un ravissement pour les amateurs d'oiseux. D'ailleurs le manager veut faire venir un spécialiste. Ils nous ont organisé un safari full day, leur chauffeur a été très performant pour débusquer les animaux contrairement au guide fourni par le parc. les chambres sont très belles mais leurs tentes encore plus. allez- y vous ne serez pas déçu ! (mais difficile à trouver).
