The services of the hotel since the time that you arrive are superb and something unique. You will be welcomed to the beat of traditional Sri Lankan drums and with a welcome drink. The Front office staff is very helpful. After check-in you will be escorted to your rooms either by a quite stroll across the well maintained beautiful gardens of the hotel or in a buggy-car. House-keeping and room-service is quite efficient to excellent. The rooms are quite comfortable. We have experienced all types of room offered by the hotel and the facilities offered can be considered as true value for the money that you pay. The hotel garden is very well maintained by the staff, which I have seen working round the clock. The rooms are also quite clean. The most attractive thing for us is the location as it is in very close proximity to the Kandalama Lake, with early morning and late evening breath taking views, which is quite relaxing. This can however, be more spectacular when the lake is filled to its full capacity and not during the drought season. We have experienced the spa, which was held in two locations. However, currently only one spa exists as the hotel is under renovation. We preferred the previous spa, which was located inside a wood-like location, instead of the spa near the swimming pool. We also enjoy the time spent on the swimming pool and strolling around the garden of the hotel, which attracts quite a few wild-lives. In nutshell for our family this has been an excellent hotel to spend a few days during each of our holidays. Very children friendly environment. Very supportive and friendly staff. Hence we have visited this hotel since 2006, at least twice each year. Also this hotel is in close proximity to the World heritage sights such as Sigiriya “Lion’s” Rock, Dambulla temple as well as couple of hours drive to the heritage city of Polonnaruwa. Also if you visit during the season of Elephant Gathering at Minneriya tank, it is also a couple of hours drive away. Taken together, me and my family do not have any hesitation in strongly recommending this hotel for a unique experience in this part of the country.
