“Very helpful caretaker”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Walked in. Away from the main streets on a quiet road.A nice garden with a parking lot. The room is OK, clean and everything works. Good pillows. No complaints. Very helpful caretaker, he arranged a late dinner and a 5 am tuktuk for me. The price seems reasonable.

Lovely, small guesthouse, basic but comfortable room. Calm place near the bus station (10min walking). Bala is kind man, he helped us to rent a motorbike, he took us to bus station, he was very friendly with my child Gabriel. He cooked delicious meal. Good value for money. I recommend this place.

This place is not awful, but I most definitely would not recommend it. The guesthouse and rooms are very basic, but much more expensive compared to similar (or even better) places in Sri Lanka. I decided to book a room here anyway, because I read such nice reviews about the host. My experience was different. When I arrived in the evening, Bala demanded to see my reservation before even letting me inside (I still had the backpack on my back), and he wasn't very welcoming. After showing him my reservation details, his mood turned 180 degrees. After I went to my room to have a shower and go to bed, he kept knocking on my door with different excuses: various non-urgent and non-important comments that he forgot to say. When this happened it was already after midnight, and it only stopped when I stopped answering the door (after having answered it 4 times already). I am not assuming that he had bad intentions, however, he should be aware that it makes a woman traveling by herself very uncomfortable when an unknown man keeps on knocking on her door after midnight.

Great WiFi, clean room, comfy bed, quality sleep.
The room we chose had a cigarette smell through the AC, we didn't understand why. It was the one with the king size bed.
We had dinner there, Bala cooked curry for us. It was very good.

Room Tip: Do not take the kingbed room because of the weird cigarette smell.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Of the many small guest houses we have stayed in during our stay in Sri Lanka, the Nature Resort stands out by far. We were treated like family by Bala from the moment we arrived until the last wave goodbye. The accommodation itself was spotless with excellent wifi, aircon etc, etc. This really is wonderful find for easy access to Yala. Our trip to the safari was organised at a very reasonable rate for the jeep (you have to pay separately to enter the park) and much cheaper than the locals trying to get your business.
What really stands out at this venue is the most amazing home cooked food. Bala goes to town to get fresh produce daily and then spends a good few hours preparing what is probably the best curry that I have ever eaten. I doubt this could be matched by any of the restaurants here. Then this is then all repeated at breakfast time!
Bala is a kind, generous hearted man, who made us feel like really special. His attention to detail is flawless, and we were only sorry not to have stayed longer.

We stayed for two nights as a group of four and booked a safari with the guide recommended by the hotel. The rooms and hotel all round are very clean! Bala loves to cook and makes the best traditional curry. Having been in Sri Lanka for a week already we were starting to get a little tired of eating the same thing so he changed it up for us making some of his family recipes, such good food. He obviously takes a lot of pride in his work and always waits for you to start to make sure you like it before leaving you to eat. A very genuine man and a lovely little hotel!

We traveled with friends and family last weekend. The design of the guest and background is very nice. Very calm place to relax also very close to Tissamaharama Town.
Rooms are very clean and neat. Foods are good. The care taker (Bala) supported us every time. he is very good. I directly contacted the owner before go there. He is nice gentleman. He supported us in many ways until we checkout from there.
Had a nice time.
Finally I would like to say, Nature Resort is good place to stay for locals as well as foreigners.
