lovely rainforest, best host in Sri Lanka
We had a perfect stay here. Pali was the best host one could wish for and he even got a cake for my brothers birthday. The standard rooms are very basic, but ok. The food is great and Palis rainforest tour with a little swim towards the end was one of the best experiences in Sri Lanka. Thank you Pali!

Very basic rooms. Price too high for room and food. But Pali is a really nice man and very good guide. We enjoyed the rainforest tour and really had a good time with Pali!

Simple guesthouse with great rainforest tours
The excellent rainforest tour, the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff and the food
the rooms were rather basic but perfectly clean and comfortable. Pali was an excellent guide in the rainforest - a trip not to be missed by anyone interested in nature. The food was lovely. One of the very few places where we were able to get a real Sri Lankan breakfast of rice hoppers, dal and coconut sambas. All the staff were so helpful and friendly we immediately felt part of the family

One has to realize that you are in the wilds...
staff and the availability of Pali for tours
Enjoyed the stay. There aren't many choices of hotels and one has to remember that one is sort of in the middle of no where. You won't find hotel chains and luxury places to stay. One does 'rough it' to some extent staying in the area, but don't feel it is much of an issue when one considers the area, remoteness, etc. Staff is really good - Pali is a good guide, and enjoyed talking to Dilshan.

We really enjoyed our time at Sinharaja rest.
Very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure that we had an amazing stay, a fantastic tour of the rainforest and great food.
We really enjoyed our stay. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the guesthouse had a very homely feel. The tour of the rainforest was great, the guides were fantastic and we had a really great day.

Perfect place for visitig the rainforest
the professional and friendly guides, food, air temperature
It was a remarkable experience. I agree with all the previous comments that the guide Pali and his brother are real profesionals, very nice and cheerful people. The whole day trip to therinforest was a unique experience - swimming in the mountain pool neer the waterfall, having legs fish massage, seeng a lot of stuff. The atmosphere in the hotel is just perfect. You feel like at home. They cook like for themselves so the local food is superb. Do not expect the rooms to be real three stars. They are basic and used. But the bed is very comfortable, and what we liked the most was the cool air in the night (no need for A/C). The location (coordinates) mentioned by Agoda are wrong. So you better look for the Eco Lodge (owned by the same owner and situated the next door) in Google Maps - thap position is precise. We were travelling by car (rented in Colombo).

The best guide for the rainforest tour!
Great tour, great people, great food!
Pali really knows everything about "his" rainforest! We had a lot of fun swimming under the waterfall and in the evening with the other guests. I warmly recommend to stay here!

Atmospheric place with perfect hosts
Sangharaja Forest tour, dinner with other guests, friendy staff
Don't go for luxury but for a great time. The owner Pali is also a guide for the forest and gives a great tour. Even a swim under the waterfall is included. We had a great time with the other guests, having dinner and talking in the evening. Rooms are basic but ok.

A great base for your rain forest walk.
The lovely experienced staff
Great place to spend a few nights. The forest walks organised and undergone with Pali, the owner were not only interesting and adventurous but really good fun. You can also do the walks if you are not staying at the hotel. So a good mix of people always works well!
