The lake, the elephants taking tourists for rides and then the locals doing their washing in the waters. We were so pleased that we had a two night stay. The food was good, but inclined to run out of some things after a...

We stayed on the 16th and 18th of October 2014, and it was a really enjoyable first stop of our tour of Sri Lanka. The room was very clean and the view over the lake is very nice. The rooms have everything you need for a pleasant stay although the bathrooms could do with a minor overhaul (and AC). There...

Watching the sunset from our balcony overlooking the lake from this hotel was so relaxing. Every morning we watched the elephants going for a walk in the morning while eating breakfast, before the elephant rides started. The hotel was very clean, tranquil and the staff were attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying here, we felt very close to...

We had a wonderful time at the Sorowwa Resort and Spa in June 2014. The room was just lovely with fantastic views. The hotel is pleasant and has a very calm atmosphere and the sunset was just awesome. All the staff are happy and very helpful. In the morning you can watch the villagers wash their clothes in the lake...

This was a great spot to base ourselves for a few days while we visited Sigiriya, Anuradhapura and wildlife parks. The hotel is very new and very clean, our room was lovely and with a great view of the lake. The staff are charming and if anything too attentive! That is not a complaint, most are young and most probably...

Spent a night at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Nice serene view of the lake and you feel totally relaxed the moment you get in. Need a bit of improvement in the area of food, but a good overall experience. For those travelling with kids, the loft rooms are great. A small hotel, compact and nice with very friendly...
