A Resort with a Heart for Nature ”
1) Location is good, about 30 mins away from Yala National Park 2) It's quiet and secluded so you can sleep sound at night 3) Beautiful Rustic Room with a balcony overseeing the Yoda Lake. Spacious too! 4) Staffs are attentive and does their jobs efficiently. The packed breakfast for our Yala excursion was thoughtful and nicely packed, a good gesture. 5) Has a beautiful pool overseeing the lake. Though we didn't use but saw lots of guests enjoying themselves there 6) Food is moderately good, it's great that they use organic produce of their own. 7) Tried the Ayuverdic Spa, my first experience so I can't comment if it's good or bad. Masseur was very warm although she can't speak much English and has good massage tempo and skills. Only point to improve is the ayuvedic center, looks tired and old. Spotted a lot of dirt and lizard poo on the walls.... And the shower after the massage is way too cold...
Dear Cynthia, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family and thank you for choosing to spend your time in Yala with us. It was a pleasure to note your satisfaction with just about all of the services and facilities on offer at the hotel. We are a little concerned though about your experiences at the Ayurveda Center and have informed our Doctor in charge about your comments. He will look in to the matter and make the necessary changes wherever possible. Please do keep us in mind and drop by for another visit soon. Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager.
Beautiful location and convenient to safari parks”
Nice big room and balcony. Great value for money. Food was average and again value for money. Mozzies were bad though not a fault of the hotel and regular for the area. Take your own plug in bug zapper. We found it convenient to the safari parks. Staff very friendly and helpful. We were there for a couple of nights only and suited our needs.
Dear Phil Let me start by thanking you for choosing to spend your holiday with the Thaulle Family and for taking the time to give us such a wonderful review of your experiences. It was indeed a pleasure for us to have hosted you and to know that you enjoyed most of the services and facilities of the hotel. We understand your issues with regards to the mosquitoes however since we are a Green Hotel we tend to avoid the use of strong pesticides that can be harmful to nature. Usually things like citronella help control the pest problem. We sincerely hope you will be able to visit us once again in the not too distant future and all the Best for the Year 2018 Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
This hotel has huge potential and could end up as a luxury boutique hotel. Facilities and room were gorgeous! A few things though....staff speak and understand very little English. Upon checking in, I asked the reception if the one bedroom suite was available and how much would it cost to upgrade. He sais yes it was available and that it would cost $30.0 to upgrade. I said good, and wanted to upgrade. When they took me to my room, it was not the one bedroom suite, but my original room ( which was very beautiful anyway...). When I questioned the reception, he then said the one bedroom was not available. Same language issues at the restaurant. One guy ordered scrambled eggs and ended up getting 4 fried eggs! You should have seen the look on his face! Priceless! . If this hotel can fix this, it will definitely rate as a very nice luxury boutique hotel!
Dear Marie, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family and our sincere thanks for spending your time in Tissa, at our property and for further taking the time to give us a great review as well. The language difficulty has been an on going issue as we try to recruit team members from the surrounding area and their level of English is not in the highest order. We commenced some training recently for the staff members in the rudiments of the language and the response has being good. We do hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future and, fingers crossed, we should have a team who would be more proficient in the language. Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Perfect 2 night Stay”
We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Yala National Park. The resort provided generous breakfast bags for us as we left at 5am for the safari which was a thoughtful idea. We decided to upgrade to a superior double room which was a lovely large room with a balcony overlooking the water. The meals and breakfast was first class using the freshest ingredients. Loved the location, very peaceful. The staff were very friendly and happy. I would definitely recommend others to book and stay at Thualle Resort.
Dear Carolyn, At the outset we, The Thaulle Family would like to thank you for staying with us and for the top notch review done on this site. We are so glad that you enjoyed all of the facilities and services offered by the hotel.

BEST HOTEL IN SRILANKA ”
Although this may not be a real 5-star hotel, but the staff performance is definitely 5-star. They are very welcoming and I like the design of the room, It's very clean, the bathroom is also well designed although there's no shampoo and shower gel in the bottle. I still enjoy the one night stay there. It's about 20 minutes from the Yala National Park, you can see many animals on the way there if you are lucky. Hotel is kindly enough to pack the breakfast for us. Again, I like their hospitality! Stayed July 2015

A perfect stay at the new Thaulle Resort”
We stayed at Thaulle Resort for two nights on January 4th and 5th. We had a warm welcome from the staff and the hotel manager who came to greet us on our arrival. We got a Comfort Double room with a balcony and a view on the lake. The hotel is just 3 months old, so our room was impeccable. Large bed, nice bathroom. My wife loved the interior deco, and me the cleanliness. On our first night we ate at the restaurant and we went for the course menu. I was impressed by the quality of the food. You can tell that the chef has studied and worked abroad, and mastered a culinary style of his own. On the second day I ordered a la carte. Again, delicious food. The chef even prepared some special requests that were not even on the menu. The staff at Thaulle Resort were all smiles and well-mannered. Helpful front desk staff, attentive waiters, and a friendly hotel manager. The hotel is in a quiet area, so it was easy to relax. We had a great stay, and we would certainly visit this hotel again.
Dear Louis, What can we say but WOW! The Thaulle Family would like to thank you for staying with us and for the top notch review done on this site.

Far exceeded our expectations”
We absolutely loved this hotel, and particularly it's location on the shores of the lake. The view from the garden and our balcony over the lake filled with water lilies and dotted with small boats was fabulous. The resort was beautifully decorated & furnished.The bedroom was gorgeous. The bathroom had the best shower of anywhere we have stayed in Sri Lanka. Breakfast & dinner were excellent with a great choice of dishes. Service and friendliness of the staff were first class. We loved the proximity to Yala National Park, which was the main reason for visiting, but we were sad we only had one night here. We will definitely stay here again but for a lot longer. We were so impressed by everything it had to offer. The gardens are glorious too.Shaun, the General Manager, was charming and clearly impressed his high standards on his staff. Delighted there was a shop selling clothing, jewellery and souvenirs which were of good quality Driver accommodation too.
Dear Steven, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family and a very big thank you indeed for not only the time spent with us while in Yala, but for further taking the time to give us such a great review on this site as well. It was indeed a pleasure to have met you as well and we hope you and your family will be able to visit, as discussed, during the next year as well. My personal thanks to you for the very kind acknowledgement towards the efforts taken in maintaining standards and services.... Though I still have a few ways to go before becoming General Manager. Best Regards as Always, Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Beautiful hotel with amazing dinner”
Staff were super friendly and dinner was amazing (and great value). The lobby and dining area of the hotel is just so aesthetically pleasing. Really great pack away breakfast because we checked out early too, so thoughtful!
Dear Colleen, We wish to start off by thanking you for choosing the Thaulle Family for your time spent in Yala and for the fantastic recommendation given to us on this site.

Beautiful hotel, with amazing views over the lake. Very nice dinner in the garden. Had a wonderful Ayurvedic massage.

Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Relaxed in a beautiful location”
This is an adults only resort with many clients making use of the Aruvedic Spa (be prepared for dressing gowns at breakfast). The staff are attentive and helpful. Eat from the buffet rather than the a la carte menu... at least until the arrangements regarding the management of the kitchen have been resolved. That said, the buffet is very good for the size of the property and the use of the garden for moonlit dinners is very romantic. Rooms are a good size, clean and well equipped. The pool is big enough to swim in but not olympic size! The Resort is on the 'right' side of town for Yala park so it is possible to get there early in the morning without hold ups. To get into town itself get a tuktuk. I can recommend the boat rise on the lake there, which can be arranged when you get there and costs about £10/$12.
Dear Nigel, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family and a very big thank you for not only choosing to spend your time in Yala with us but for further taking the trouble to review and give us such a good score on this site. We are indeed pleased to note your full satisfaction in most areas and we are doing our best to rectify some of the issues from the kitchen department. We do hope you will be able to visit us again in the not too distant future. Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Tranquil Safari Getaway”
The place was secluded next to a beautiful lake. It was very serene and tranquil, perfect for a getaway. The food was good and service was very hospitable. It's about a 20-min drive to the entrance of the safari.
Dear Katrina, Warm Greetings from The Thaulle Family and Thank You for spending your time in Yala with us and for reviewing your stay at the property on this site. It is a pleasure to note that most of our services and facilities were to your discerning standards and we will do our best to maintain and improve these as and when necessary. Best Wishes and we do hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future. Thanks and Regards, Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager.
Relaxing small/medium resort hotel convenient to Yala park”
A rather nice and relaxing place! We were upgraded to a lovely room (thank you!!) but all the rooms seemed to be nice and lake facing. The room was very clean. Good WiFi. The pool and surrounding area was quiet and very pleasant. My partner had a very enjoyable massage. The food was good with enough choice for the western visitor to SL. All the staff were very helpful and a credit to the hotel. But, at 860, the Lion beer was expensive (we’ve never paid more than 750 even at the Heritance Tea Factory!) although the other drinks were not so bad. A really good stay and choice for those wanting small resort/spa de luxe accommodation.
Dear Peter Thank you for choosing to stay with the Thaulle Family and for taking the time to give us such a great review on this site as well. It was indeed a pleasure to have been your host and we are glad that you enjoyed the services and facilities of our property. Some of our items may seem a little expensive and the main reason is that Thaulle is a Tax registered company and we have to pay inland revenue on each and every one of our transactions. Please do keep us in mind the next time you visit the beautiful shores of Sri Lanka. Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manage
Off-peak hospitality. ”
Service was bad. Staff were rude. Breakfast and dinner was average at best. The only thing that commanded a satisfactory feedback was the view. We had an ants infestation in our room, informed the staff that it was actually getting from bad to worst, staff came in with a can of baygon and sprayed it all over the room. (We happened to be having dinner in the room as well). Breakfast experience was terrible, waiter was rude and impatient. Needless to say, we were out of the hotel first thing after breakfast, and would not be returning anytime soon.
Dear Asile, At the outset we wish to thank you for choosing Thaulle Resort for your time spent in Tissa. The management has made a very special note regarding all of the areas that were not up to standard. We will address each situation with the respective departments concerned to ensure this does not happen again. As you may notice from most of the other reviews, this is not our usual standard. However if we dropped the ball in this instance, we do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. The entire Thaulle family joins me in sending our best regards and we do hope you will visit us again and give us the opportunity to prove our worth. Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Great hotel for good price”
What a nice surprise almost at the end of our stay in Sri Lanka. Thaulle resort is few kilometers from Thissa, at the board of the lake with nice stupa view just behind the lake. Very kind service , always close by, always asking if things are ok, always smiling 😉 The building is a 4 story, not particularly nice from outside, but inside from lobby, to rooms, dining areas are well done, spacious, design between modernity and local touch, always light from a lot of big windows. Rooms and bathroom are great, safe, minibar, quiet AC, huge bathroom, comfortable beds, nothing to say. Breakfast choice is good, combination of local food and international one, with plenty of fresh fruits. We tried also Ayourveda massages, both of us were extremely satisfied. This was for us clearly best hotel in Sri Lanka and by far not the most expensive, which makes it good value for money. We would definitely recommend it
Dear Roman, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family! It was indeed a pleasure to read your uplifting review regarding your stay with us. We will continue to improve our standards of service in order to serve our valued clients better. We have started a training program in the hotel for all team members and this is just the start as we want our property to be the best in the area. We do hope you will visit us again soon. Best Regards Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Good overnight stay”
I would recommend this hotel for an overnight stay. We stayed here as it was a booking at short notice.Good location .Clean rooms.Has an Ayurvedic centre . The breakfast was simple.We had dinner at the restaurant.I would recommend the Calamari or prawn side dish.Large portion and tasty.
Dear Mahdevan, Ayubowan! Thank you for choosing the Thaulle Resort for your time spent in Tissa. We are happy to note that you were satisfied in most areas and assure you of our continuous commitment to improve our levels of service. The seafood choice is indeed good as we have a very good supplier of fresh seafood who delivers to the hotel on a daily basis. We do hope you will keep us in mind the next time you visit Sri Lanka. Best Regards from the Thaulle Family! Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
five star hardware but terrible restaurant”
This resort has a good location, nearby the lake, can get the lake view both in room and restaurant. Also has the best toiletries in sri lanka. However the disappointing part is the restaurant. Not many choices in breakfast and dinner buffet, and the expensive 'papaya juice' tastes like water.
Dear Chao, Warm Greetings and our thanks to you for choosing to spend your holiday time in Tissa with us. We are happy to note that you were satisfied with most of the facilities and services on offer. Your comments with regards to the food and beverage services were informed to our Chef and he has already looked in to the matter and ensured that such a thing will not happen again. We sincerely hope you will be able to visit us again and in the meantime..... Best Regards from the Thaulle Family! Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Like the shower best, powerful water. Room bit small but very comfortable. Good view to the lake. Good breakfast. Hotel arranged the full day safari. Our driver/guide is professional to make much effort for our sight for more animals. The pool is very cooling.
Dear PAK, Thank you for staying with us and for the high score given on your review. It was a pleasure to note that you were satisfied in most areas. As for the size of the rooms, i would advise you to look at our superior or deluxe rooms, these are noted to be larger than most rooms, even rooms within this same category. We do hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future and till that time, Best regards from the Thaulle Family. Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Beautiful hidden gem in Yala!”
This hotel is lovely! We stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting Yala National Park on Safari. It is centrally located and not far from the NP but it feels secluded and tucked away. The rooms feel very traditional yet with the modern comforts including a huge bath and the views look onto a vast wetland area. Good selection of food also and staff are attentative.
Dear michelle, Warm Greetings from the Thaulle Family and our thanks to you for the fantastic review given on your experience at the hotel. We are so happy that you chose to spend your time in Yala with us and that we met with you discerning expectation on such a high level. Please do keep us in mind and drop by once again if you should visit Sri Lanka in the future. Best Regards, Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
wonderful hotel for safari”
we stayed at this hotel for access to 3 national parks - fabulous location. quite expensive excursions and you can book independently for better priced jeep tours into the parks. we enjoyed the restaurant for both in room and garden dining. the pool area was a bit crowded and wifi coverage was not the best. facility was new and beautifully decorated. we would definitely go back again for another visit.
Dear Amy, What can we say but "WOW", thanks so much for the wonderful review. We have passed on your score and remarks to all the team members. We are happy to note that you enjoyed the time you spent with us and as you mentioned a second visit, we eagerly look forward to welcoming you back. In the meantime, best regards from the Thaulle Family. Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
Eco friendly surprise ”
Being offered produce grown by the hotel along with homemade jams and fabulous banana cake was the icing on the cake. Agoda you need to ensure the photos used reflect the room being booked as I definitely saw what turned out to be a deluxe room against the description of a standard room. The manager was good enough to move us so we got to enjoy the fabulous views.
Dear Debby, Warm Regards from all your friends at the Thaulle Resort and our thanks to you for such a great review based on your stay with us. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in Yala with us and got a chance to try out our garden grown home made products. We also have home made Ice Cream! With regards to the rooms advertised, we too have taken the necessary measures to rectify the matter as we do not want to deceive our valued guests in any way. The entire Thaulle Family hopes you will visit us again in the not too distant future. Shawn J. Peterson Front Office Manager
