Love the Lake Wave. Amazing hosts, very casual and easy going - good bloke. Ideally located close to town and the lake views are great. Get a room with a balcony. Some good cheap food in town and lots of religious sites to visit if that is your want.

アヌラーダプラのnew railway st.の徒歩5分程度の場所です。ところどころ、宿への案内が立っているので迷わないかと思います。もし、トゥクトゥクで駅から向かうなら100ルピー程度だと思います。 駅前に大きなスーパーがありますし、夕食などはスーパー併設のレストランを利用しました。朝食付きで、簡単なものでしたが充分でした。 遺跡地区へは、トゥクトゥクか自転車が良いようです。私たちは、宿で自転車を一台400ルピーで借りて回りました。だいたい半日から1日あれば充分楽しめます。 宿は目の前が湖で朝はとても綺麗です。シャワーは水でしたが、気温が熱いので問題ないかと思います。夜窓を閉め切ってしまうと、ものすごく暑いので、窓を開けて蚊帳を使へば少し涼しくなります。オーナー夫妻は明るく気さくな方々で、息子さんが千葉で働いているようです。

Opali and his wife are very welcoming. You'll feel at home. He will tell you where to go, which is not in the books! Insiders places and really worth it! If he has the time, he'll bring you. Had a good breakfast and loved the food in the evening! Around there's a main street with a big supermarket and tuktuks... More

Upon arrival I was offer a nice cup of tea. The rooms offer excellent facilities with a lake view. This is very rare in Anuradhapura. Excellent wifi connectivity as well even in rooms. This is rare in most travellers budget. The owners family is lovely and friendly.
