“Excellent”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Roof top view is elegant and offers beautiful views of surrounding. Short drive to Katharagama and Yaala. 5 minutes drive to Kirinda Temple. Rooms are well furnished clean and quite spacious. Give us chance to see the outside surrounding through the glasses. Peacocks are always there around the bungalow and Deer's too could be seen. Must mention the food made by Appu is delicious! This is a kind of place where guests do not hesitate to go back.

“The most Wonderful Safari Holiday we ever had”
Reviewed 22 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

There were 10 of us in our Group family & Friends and we checked in on 12th Jan Friday afternoon for lunch. From the Welcome drink thru out breakfasts, lunches and scrumptious BBQ dinner – all meals were great and ‘Big Thank You’ goes to Appu and his team for delicious meals and care in serving them.
The Bungalow in whole situated in a superb location on the main road leads to Yala National Park, just 10 minutes away. The modern architectural designed luxury house which had a breath-taking scenic view and space gives feeling of relaxation. We had a marvelous 3 day adventurous vacation with full of fun and relaxation with great food. Thank you for providing us such a great time Naveen, will definitely looking forward to be back !

Highly recommend to anybody who requires a friendly, homely environment with calm, relaxing atmosphere to spend a great safari vacation !

Ingrid was our first Trip Advisor guest. She bookeed the bungalow more than 6 months ago. It was indeed a pleasure to host Ingrid and her team. We are very happy that they liked the food and the bungalow. Hopefully you will visit us again sometime soon.

“Nice place at the edge of Yala”

person found this review helpful

We made a last minute booking for Tree Tops after checking many options around Yala and have to say this was the best out of the lot. It is within around 10 mins distance to the National Park. 6 of us stayed in the large dormitory-like room with 2 attached washrooms which were extremely spacious, clean and well maintained. The surrounding is very nice with a spacious garden to spend time with. They have a large balcony we used overnight for a chit chat enjoying the Yala breeze. You can also see elephants that roam close by across the road

Although we made a last minute booking, Navin was able to arrange a full rice and curry dinner for us, prepared by the Appu himself. Appu is very friendly and helpful. He even volunteered to prepare breakfast for us at 5 a.m. before we left for the Safari.

Owner Navin is a very friendly, professional person and he checked up on us over the phone to make sure the booking went well.

Overall great stay, we wish we could have spent more time there, but we had a jungle calling to attend to Will definitely go back for a relaxing stay on the edge of Yala.

Reviewed 3 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

This Villa has a considerably nice view. We love this hotel for cleanliness. Owner and hotel staff are very friendly. Rooms are better than ok, beds are comfy, hot/cold water is available all the time. As a holiday experience, me and my friends left the hotel with our smiles☺️on our faces.. So, I recommended Tree Tops.

“... just like the pics :)”
Reviewed 9 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

For once, a place that doesn't deviate much from the pics :)
Absolutely gorgeous place; a beautiful sanctuary to relax-in amongst wild nocturnal deers and dancing peacocks in the morning. Apparently you can sometimes see elephants too at night. Clean spacious dorm type rooms with attached bathrooms. One with 6-beds and another with 4-beds. these were upstairs. Perfect for a 9-pax family like ours.
There's also another room downstairs.
Navin the owner was constantly in touch with us to ensure smooth check-in and that our needs/request duly noted.
Mr.Appu the caretaker and cook served us a good spread for dinner and the best breakfast of our entire trip. Tosai with condiments (chutney & curry) and milk hoppers. Excellent cook he is. Warm and friendly too. Even made rasam (indian herb soup) on demand for my grandma.
Hi son-in-law Mr.Sudesh was also very helpful in accommodating all our requests.
Overall, a fantastic place with superb service staff and cook.
My only regret is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy this place
If yer only staying for one night, then do check -in early and soak in the tranquility; pretty sure sunset will be awesome here :)
Definitely would return. Keep up the good work Navin. Thank you! Cheers!

“Very Adventurous Hotel”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

If you want to experience the wildness up close, this is the place. Situated in Yala, this is the most adventurous place to be in.
This hotel is truly amazing and in harmony with nature. Real gem of Yala. You can see wild animals just in the territory of hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Staff is really helpful and amazing.
Most recommended if you need to run away from the world and just enjoy nature and great food.
