Great stay near Tissamaharama
I love this place and could have stayed longer. A clean swimming pool. A restaurant on site and we could eat any time. Staff were very accommodating. There was also a free jeep tour (offer tips) of the local area where I saw monkeys. Wonderful!

Major construction
Overall it was ok.. good design. Newest rooms. My problem that haven't disclosed that they are under construction. Try to relax at the pool when workers are putting tiles 5 miters from you and stare at you all the time.

Good place, a bit isolated
This is a great place, with a great staff. The pool was just being finished when we stayed here. It will help because it is a bit removed from restaurants and the town in general. If there for a safari to Yala, they will arrange that for you (at a slightly higher price than in town)

Good location for safari
The reason for coming to this area was to visit Yalla national park. The hotel organised an excellent half day safari for us with a really good, knowledgeable guide. This was really helpful as there were so many touts offering trips it could have been a nightmare. The accommodation was adequate, the staff friendly and helpful. All in all it provided good value for money.

A modern hotel with a traditional touch.
Just minutes off the main road, you enter through an impressive gateway and see in front of you an almost fairytale structure, set in a tropical garden. Large rooms with cold drinks always available. FYI however, I suspect that it's a little walk to town or anywhere else if you don't have a car.
