We thank you for coming to Thotupola for an IBJ programme as we call it. IBJ means
"Inward Bound Journey" that is, the learning outcome that you experience by doing a programme with us gets into your inner system and remains with you for the rest of your life. In other wards by participating in an IBJ programme it helps to see the "Real You...in You" which had been hidden all this time. This is also called "Your true potential"

My wife and I came to Sri Lanka for our honeymoon. We found the local language to be a bit of a barrier and couldn't get around as easily on our own. Nayana (Reservations Co-ordinator) from Thotupula Lakeside Resorts, genuinely helped us out in a manner, where we have never been helped before. She helped us co-ordinate the rest of the trip as per our preferences and budget and also kept in touch with us to make sure the rest of our trip went as planned.

This smiling and hospitable staff at the resort and Nayana were the highlights for us. The resort sits on a lake giving you a view that is earned usually at retirement. Getting up in the morning, sitting at the lake sipping their cooked tea is a feeling both of us really cherished.

I have nothing but great things to say about the place and the staff, if you are the kind of person who enjoys checking-in and not venturing out, there are numerous in-resort activities that you can indulge in: wall climbing, aerial rope (jump from a 3 storey building into the lake), kayaking and a swimming pool. If you crave Sri Lankan cuisine: the in-hotel prices are comparable to driving outside and eating out. From string hoppers for breakfast with fish curry to Sri Lankan dal, chilli chicken, fried rice and their local desert, all of them come in generous
quantities making sure you are not left hungry (the quantities were usually more than a regular hotel). The hotel staff are extremely open to your comments and will happily change anything if needed. Since we were on our honeymoon, the staff also arranged to provide us with a complimentary fruit basket, which lead to a feeling of being truly cared for. Additionally, on check-out day we had to leave earlier before breakfast, on notifying the staff they arranged to pack us sandwiches and fruits in lieu of not being able to serve us a proper breakfast.

Had it not been for Nayana's help and the experience she made possible at the resort, we were genuinely considering cutting our trip short and heading back home ...

room facility-good but need proper maintenance.Bath room is exposed to the trees out side & should have some curtains for the windows.Should have intercom.TV can add some value.

Excellent service.Good people and very friendly.Superb food.Lovely and clean environment.Only issue is that your hotel is not facilitated to accept credit /debit cards.
The way customer handling we can never ever forget Nayana and Kumara.Also please ensure to hang name boards at every junction so that people will not miss the place.Some times ago it was there and now it is not.

Room Tip: As we had a day out unable to comment on rooms

I was at this resort with my wife during my visit to Sri Lanka. Service of the Aisha and team was very good. Rooms and the location were very attractive. The morning tea was fantastic. Only thing is the food which is very expensive. Also it'd be better to have a phone in the room to contact staff. However me and my wife, we were both very happy about everything. Thank you Aisha and team for the service and everything.
