In Sri Lanka, I was all one month. Of the 10 days I spent in this beautiful and peaceful place. The Well House is for me one of the few places where I will definitely like to come back. Their food was delicious! I look forward to go back there again.

I've been here ten days. It was a perfect 10 days in a great location. Well house was the best accommodation in Sri Lanka, which I met during my trip. Excellent staff, tasty kitchen, clean place and comfort of the highest class. It is a good choice to your relax. The owner is a great man in the right place....
