Hotel Yapahuwa Paradise
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Yapahuwa
Reviewed 13 February 2013

This was my first time in Sri Lanka and my 1st Sri Lankan hotel.. a very pleasant introduction to Sri Lanka with the white ibis walking round the outdoor swimming pool when we arrived!! It was rainy, hot and very humid (but i guess thats Sri Lanka!) when I was there so it was a bit of dash in the rain from the rooms (in their separate blocks) to the main hotel for breakfast, but that's OK for me. This is a 'posh' hotel by Sri Lankan standards, the bar is quite expensive. The decoration is very good and ethnic in the communal areas, and all very nice to an English eye, but the facilities are. maybe not to an American eye (I learned - ref: lynette if you read this :-)). There is air conditioning, and the bathroom was fine for me .. but some may find holes - like no viable tv (I don't care), no room wifi (you have to sit next to the man in reception to get it and the staff don't really know what wifi is) and the food is limited, but very good. Overall i think the hotel was charming. (just don't expect the Dorchester in a country that's only 2 years on from a major civil war). Overall a great place to stay! - having stayed in few hotels after this in Sri Lanka, this was a good one!

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to the main block

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. What we liked most at Yapahuwa Paradise was the fantastic hospitality, especially from Menaka and his team. The rooms are airy, spacious and clean. The food was good and we had carte blanche over menu selection as there were not many other guests at the time. Unfortunately the lake had dried up because of the draught so that the views from the rooms were not that spectacular as it would have been otherwise. The Yapahuwa rock is less than 2km away from the hotel. It is a nice place for a relaxing and peaceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The hotel is located near one of sri lankan old heritage site. There is a natural lake which gives the best view near rooms. Also there we can watch birds and have nature walks. Front desk is more professional on welcoming guest s. Superb location. You must stay at least 2 days for your real stay.

Clean and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed complete with mosquito netting. Large clean bathroom. The gardens and pool area were a delight.

All the staff, including waiters, room boys (glad of the electric mossie killer which was plugged in by the time we had finished dinner) and bar manager, were very welcoming and friendly.
