Not recommended”
Not clean - no water in bathroom - a lot of animals inside the room - small bed - no English speaking staff - overpriced - difficult to find. Breakfast was good.

You get what you pay for”
We came in the area to do white water rafting. This is one of the cheapest options to stay. For one night OK, don't know what I would do if we stayed more nights. No Wi-Fi.

Perfect stay”
Room, food, cleanliness
Perfect stay, nothing to complain. Tip for the owner: put a sign at the road, so it will be easier to find. Thanks for the pleasant stay!

Worst mattresses, almost impossible to find.”
Nice view
We finally found the place, had a cup of tea. Then we tried the Bed: No way that it's possible to sleep there: Very small, matress out of straw, feels like lying oh the wood. Afterwards we switched the Accomodation withput sleeping there an withound getting money back! Owner lives in Colombo, the guy who is there speeks no word in English.

Great Stay”
friendly owner, location, great view
Had a wonderful time at fern hills. Malik has developed his property to make for a very peaceful stay that is wonderfully blended with the natural surroundings. You will wake up to the sound of the wild animals around the home and drink tea watching the sunrise over the surrounding mountains. A quick drive to all the activities around Kitigula. Highly recommend this stay!

Best Place to Get Away!!”
Ongoing communication with owner; food was to die for!!; view and surroundings untouched, beautiful and serene
Fantastic stay - highly recommend it!! Fern Hills Resort, in secluded Kitulgala, is a bit challenging for tuktuk drivers to find, if they are not from the area. There is no sign on the main road, and the entrance to the resort is too steep for tuktuks to climb. HOWEVER, the owner is more than accommodating: confirming our reservation with us before our arrival, giving our tultuk driver directions in Singal, and meeting us at the gate to welcome us! Our room was very clean and had on demand hot water for the shower. The cottage amenities were "rustic"-styled, and very comfortable. The cottage itself is surrounded by a huge garden of native Sri Lankan plants; a guided tour revealed many spices, fruits and specialty trees! Also, a resident giant squirrel and a wild band of monkeys! The view from the guesthouse is incredible! Aberdeen Falls are observable through the valley mist, an absolutely stunning sight! The owner graciously organized a white water rafting trip for us - he even drove us there and back! The rafting company was experienced and made us feel safe. Regarding food, as the location is isolated, you almost HAVE to eat at the guesthouse. You get a choice of a Western or Sri Lankan meal (for breakfast, lunch and dinner) - we ate Sri Lankan for every meal during our two-night stay...and it was delicious!! Every meal was prepared exclusively for us by the most wonderful housekeeper; expect rice, lunu miris, chicken, vegetables, yogurt, fresh fruit and tea! We found the price of the meals on the high side (650 to 750 LKR/meal/person), but all of the food really was exceptionally delicious (best dahl curry so far!). As well, the owner is fluent in English, making it really easy to communicate! All in all, our stay in Kitulgala was absolutely incredible, all thanks to the Fern Hills Resort...if you love water sports, need a break from the touristy coast, or just want to get away from the city, this is the place to go!!!
