We stayed at the hotel for one night during a tour of Sri Lanka. The rooms are in cottages spread over the grounds. They are nicely appointed although the bathroom floors are very slippy when wet. The pool is superb and was enjoyed by the children. The dinner buffet was over expensive and over the top. There are a lot...

What a lovely resort! Beautiful grounds situated on a lake with lots of bird life and peaceful views. The bungalows were beautiful, and everything--wifi, ac, etc. worked perfectly. We especially enjoyed the "second" pool and a la carte restaurant. The buffet at the main restaurant was excellent as well. Hated to leave!

This widely spread resort with cottages dotted under tree lined paths was a tranquil, restful place. The rooms were comfortable, clean and in good decorative order. The pool side was very pleasant and the restaurant was well situated overlooking the garden and pool. The service was impeccable and the food and drink tasty albeit on the pricey side. The choice...

The location of the hotel is amazing against the lake. The extent of greenery and natural beauty is such a relaxing and peaceful environment. The chalets with their rustic look, really add to a greater sense of privacy. It is showing signs of required maintenance but this is negligible. The staff were most helpful and courteous. Although an open design,...
