On arrival we were greeted with chilled cinnamon scented towels, a lovely touch after a long flight to Sri Lanka. Our lodge was spacious and clean, though the bathroom had a bit of an odd smell. We had a couple of problems with the aircon but this was addressed quickly by the staff. The a la carte restaurant was nice, service was very good, though it would benefit from some music as you can't hear the band playing in the main bar from there. The buffet restaurant had excellent food, the sweets were especially good in their own chilled room. Service there was pretty good, though our drinks order got lost once. Drinks were very reasonably priced.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of a tour of the region and we were too busy to fully enjoy the surroundings which was a shame as the lake was beautiful and we'd have loved to have taken a walk down by it. There were opportunities to have a private bbq by the lake which we were asked if we wanted at least once at every meal (it got a bit annoying after a while). We'd have probably done this if we could have predicted what time we'd be back from our tour. There was also a small lodge on site where the guides all stayed, which meant we got a prompt start every morning.
On our last night we entered our lodge to find a lovely display of flowers spelling out a parting message and an elephant made out of towels which was a lovely touch.
Overall a very nice hotel and we'd definitely return.
