10/10 Exceptional

We had an amazing stay here before going on safari at yala! Great value for money and the owners are very helpful. We had the whole place to ourselves. Pool area is fantastic and the cooked brekky in the morning was delicious and huge portion sizes. Would definitely recommend staying here!

We stayed at Serenity for a night to do a safari at Yala. We had a lovely stay, the room was very clean and nice, with a comfortable bed and nice shower. The staff was very lovely and friendly. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which were both very tasty. We didn't get to use the gym or swimming pool since we were staying for so little time, but it looked really nice. I would definitely recommend!
