I stayed at Laya Safari for 7 days during my quarantine. Everything was very well organised : meals came on-time,bed linen & towels were changed in the necessary days, Kothamalli/Ranawara were given to boost immunity levels & everyone from staff to the management made sure that my stay at the hotel was comfortable. I had so many authentic Sri Lankan meals and I would say it was really worth the money. The room was very spacious & had all the amenities I needed . The view from the room was an added bonus: it was just breathtakingly beautiful! Definitely a MUST-VISIT HOTEL. Thank you Laya Safari - Yala for the wonderful 7 day stay!
