We stayed in this hotel for one night on our way towards south coast, and for afternoon safari to Yala national park. We were the only guests, given spacious ground level room at the end of main building, facing towards the lake. Having tea and observing lake was very nice. The room was clean. Half board served in standard quality....

We stayed at Taprospa in Tissamaharama for one night in the last week of June 2014. It is a small property with only 15 rooms and is definitely not a luxury resort. However, the Resort is located in a beautiful place facing the Tissa Lake, which gives the guest more than he asked for in terms of natural beauty and...

Our room with lake view is quiet large. The bathroom is clean and we had a very good shower. I wish I stayed in the room and enjoyed the lake view instead of going to the worst safari in my life time. Tissa is not as famous as Yala, but Tissa is a great place for relax and doing nothing...

Earlier this year I stayed in Taprospa Palm Leaves in Jaffna, and I enjoyed my stay there very much. So when looking for a place to stay in Tissa- I trusted the Taprospa brand. This is what we found: an average hotel beside an above-average lake with below average food. The hotel is compact and feels intimate, the small pool...

This place is ideal for one night. If you are looking at going to the yala national park. The resort is facing the lake. We got a spacious room overlooking the lake. The room was clean. Service is also good, friendly staff. They provide packed breakfast which was very handy for the long early morning safari. They also arrange jeeps...

We stay there for 1 night in March 2014. We got a nice and spacious room with own porch and lakeview. The room was very clean as well and the staff very friendly. We did not eat there except for breakfast which was good. We can recommend this hotel if staying in the Yala Nationalpark area.

Taprospa Tissa made a perfect overnight stop between Uda Walawe and Yala national parks and, for £30 a night for a double room with breakfast, was excellent value for money. The 70s-style modernist hotel is on the shore of the Tissa Wewa lake and has its rooms clustered around a peaceful garden and pool with views across the lake towards...

Great find, the pool overlooking the lake had an amazing view however it did need a clean. Our room was on the ground floor and you needed to pass these bushes therefore I feel that the greenery around our room needed a trim as it they were clearly overgrowing into the pathway into our room. Bathroom had a slight odour...

Great hotel, incredibble lake view! The pool is small but you can sweam towards the sunset on the lake and watch the birds as you do... The room was big, clean, well decorated with good new shower.
