Visited the Owinka Lake resort with my office colleagues. This is a place ideal for a day outing and enjoy an entire day free from our busy lives.

The rooms/chalets are very spacious and the staff is very friendly. It was a nice place to spend some quality time. The pool wasn't that big but it was okay. There were so many outdoor activities. It was so much fun.

We spent a day at this place on last week end. This hotel is a mixed bag. The positives are the place itself, food and chalets. The hotel is situated near Bolgoda river and the scenery is mind blowing I must say. The hotel has a medium sized pool and it is adequate for a small group. Chalets are spacious...

We spent the day at this wonderful eco lodge. It has a value for the money. The prices were average. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's advisable to order food at least one hour before to avoid any disappointment. The fruit juices were fresh and pleasant. You can take a boat ride for Rs 3000 for an hour. It...

We spend one night at this lovely place, when we arrived there, we were really surprise. It’s like a hidden Gem in the jungle. The access road is very scary and feels like we are in jungle.
