The house is beautiful with good beds, ac and a large bathroom. We were welcomed with a fresh fruit juice. Excellent as a home base for going on safari to the Yala Park. We also did the barbecue which was nice with regards to the setting. The food and the wine were not worth the 3.000 rupees though. Breakfast and...

We spent a couple of nights at Richards Cabanas during our recent trip to Sri Lanka. We have stayed there before and, once again, it was lovely. Just three cabanas next to a small river. Very clean and comfortable. Adjit was very welcoming and helpful and told my husband where to go to see more birds. He arranged an excellent...

We stayed at Richards Cabanas for two very pleasant nights. The food was excellent, the host was very accommodating and friendly, the villa was clean and spacious with a really nice stream running down the side. The Host also organised a trip to Yala for us which was very reasonable and of top quality. Highly recommend.

Stayed 2 nights in Tissa at Richard Cabanas. Anjit is a great host. The place is neat and clean, surrounded by nature. The food is awesome and the facilities on par with a 4* hotel. Staying on the terrace and enjoying a cup of tea was a great way to relax after a full day safari.

Very nice place: super clean and nice bungalows (only 3); best breakfast of whole Sri Lanka Trip; very gentle Manager; very good dinner as well- you just need to per-order during the day. Good organization of safari trips. 😀😀😀

I stayed here for 3 nights to relax and to visit Yala. The owner arranged our trip to Yala along with driver and lunch at what I believe was a good price. The cabana was clean, comfortable with excellent wifi coverage. I spent a whole day just sitting on the veranda watching the local birds along the small river next...
