Vihangama is a perfect place to relax and unwind. We were two families and booked 2 deluxe cottages. The rooms were perfect clean linen etc. It has a nice sit out. The plantation walk is very relaxing and is not acres together, it is just perfect. The Tunga river is just about 200 meters away from the room and one...

Large area. Nice view, several options to suite budget from standard, deluxe, bunker to river facing villas. Food is optional so choose to eat here or outside depending on the plan. Food is great and 250 bucks for dinner and 150 for breakfast. Staff is very friendly. There is Private river beach. Beer available.

The only reason I gave this place 3 stars is cause the place is very pretty and I did not want to be rude. But, well the service is very bad. They refuse to serve dinner in the room cause it's a rule. But they could have made an exception as we were travelling with my one year old son.I...

We went on a long weekend based on a last minute decision to Vihangama as the place was known to a friend. Normally, we would not go to a place which is ranked so low on trip advisor especially on the customer service part. We took 2 of the river front villas. These were really good. Clean, well furnished, good...

The host at this place has no respect for the customers. Our room was not ready at the check in time. He did not even care to apologise. Since we already knew that the food is expensive and without variety from Tripadvisor reviews, we chose to eat out. Next day when we were his staff checked rooms for damages beforecheck...

I visited this place during Apr 2016. The place is serene and wonderful. The biggest worry is the hospitality from owner and staff. They charge for everything and nothing is complimentary. This is a place suitable for those who simply wants to lay back and relax. However, if somebody really wants to be involved in some activities, then there are...
