“Magical impression of the sri lankan way of life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We arrived as guest in the open arms of the two borthers and their families and left with the regret that we made som real friends whom we had to say goodbye to, the rooms are spacy, utterly clean and comfortable wit their own porche overlooking the ricefields filled with animals that like to pop up in early morning where hou get spoiled in foods and flavours and you just have to let them indulge you in all the curry s and lovely vegetables their auyrvedic meaning and you have the lush of tastes.. Even when I said I would love to taste the maniok again they went through the troubles of driving two villages just to be able to serve it...the breakfast , the fruitplatters filled with jackfruit, sugar can, mango lemo melon papaya and all the others just to give us the taste but above all their warmth and friendship and how they we t over themselves just to please us.. We actually made friends there and we miss Nimal and Eranda and their families already hugely.. Not staying here would be a mistake it is an experience you have to indulge in

Great location, next to a greenish paddy-field. Really glad we stumbled upon this hotel. Just few minutes from Ancient City of Polonnaruwa. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean huge luxurious rooms, bathroom and small porch area for each room to gaze at conspicuous paddy-field. In my opinion great value for money you pay!
