We stayed here in order to climb Sri Pada (Adams Peak), a bit more than an hour away by tuk-tuk. Anything closer was already booked out but we were happy with our choice as it turned out, because this place is very peaceful and calm and relaxing, and we needed a bit of a break by then from the traffic and other general excitement of Sri Lanka. Looking out at a placid, mirror-like lake and being surrounded by a tea plantation dotted with beautiful eucalypts (from home!) was a real breath of fresh air. Now for the 'pluses": a very comfortable bed with lovely fresh white cotton sheets; a clean bathroom with the best water pressure anywhere, not just in Sri Lanka; the very excellent service of the manager, Ganesh; superb home-cooked Sri Lankan curries and cold beer. Ganesh organised transport to take us to Sri Pada to see the sunrise and back 'home' for a hearty breakfast and bed. After our climb up 5,000 steps and back down we were especially glad of such a peaceful, comfortable place to rest. Thank you Ganesh!
