To say the good things first: The garden with pool is a nice place to relax in the afternoon. We had a fantastic tour of the Udawalawe national park. We have seen beautiful and new rooms in the building.
Unfortunately, we had bad luck with our stay. We got a room that was quite worn (dirty walls and light switches, ugly mosquito net). We booked a day trip to Sinharaja forest and didn't get a good briefing or tour organisation (in fact, the accomodation only books the driver, not the guide - which we learned too late). So after a nice, but very short tour the guide tried to charge us an exaggerated price and got very upset when we claimed that the correct price would be much lower. The driver didn't help us and the owner of Pavana resort refused any responsability.)
Things were complicated by the fact that the staff speaks very poor English.
Be sure to have dinner in Sarathchandra Restaurant just 200 metres down the main road.
