Stayed 1 night in April 2017
Beautiful surroundings”
A beautiful resort, we only stayed for 1 night to do an early morning safari. The hotel organized the safari for us. Clean and nice family room. Our kids loved the turtles and fish pond, as well as the small playground and swimming pool. The breaskfast is fairly basic and since we didn't have it included in our room fee, it was pricey for what it was. Our kids ate one bowl of cereal each, but we were still charged full price for them - bit disappointing. Otherwise no faults, would stay again.

beautiful place do not get a massage!!”
Beautiful place to stay and easy access to the safari. Had a very lovely stay until my friend and I decided to get a massage (both young females). Both of us experienced repeated unwanted sexual touching from the masseuse (male). We tried to inform the reception, however it appeared not to be understood. Obviously this experience greatly ruined our stay and made us feel quite uncomfortable. Would recommend the place but not the beauty spa!!

Lovely hotel in Udawalawe”
Very enjoyable stay - beautiful hotel, grounds and pool. It was a tranquil & comfortable setting that was convenient to get to the safari parks. A lot nicer than in the pictures online. Restaurant food was basic which was a shame as if you could have enjoyed a beautiful meal here it would have been fantastic. Staff were polite and helpful but would be handy to have more info of local activities. I'd definitely stay here again but would research other places to go for dinner to provide some different options.

Lovely village ”
We stopped there for 2 nights. Staff organised us safari ride. It was the most exciting time to watch elephants just 2 steps in front of you, crocodiles, buffalo, peacokos and much more. After we had relaxing time by the pool. The lodge is located in friendly village. Worth to go for a walk around. Amazing stay.

Best stay of our trip”
We loved every aspect of Nil Diya Mankada, our rooms were clean, spacious and very comfortable. The food was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. They even have an ayurvedic spa to wind down. The manager was a very hospitable person generously offering help as well. The arrangements for the car and driver to and from the hotel saved us plenty of trouble too. Definately a joy to have been able to stay here!

Great location, wonderful for families”
This was a simply beautiful lodge, rooms were excellent, pool clean and maintained, staff so very friendly. Venue lovely for children to run around, restaurant on site but poor quality food, I think they are still developing menu but we still loved staying here. Would stay here again!!!! Air con, TV , fridge, has everything you need after a hot safari, small convenience stores close to buy drinks to put in your fridge. We spent two nights here and that was perfect really, one of the better places we stayed in Sri Lanka!!
