While there are some issues with Serene Park, overall we really liked our stay at this hotel. First, the issues-the rooms have very high ceilings and air conditioner units too small to properly cool, which was an issue with...

We stayed here for a night while in Tissa for the Yala National Park. Room was great, spacious and clean, and air conditioning was working well. Bathrooms are also clean. There are big paddy fields in front of and behind the hotel, which you can enjoy the views from the second floor onwards, pity that the fields arent harvesting when...

After reading many reviews, we decided to stay at this hotel while going on safari at Yala. The location of the hotel is ideal: just outside of the hustle and bustle of Tissa and on the lake. The downstairs reception and dining area is open air, and there is a large balcony upstairs which offers amazing views of the lake...

Within walking distance...

We needed a place to stay overnight after Yala safari, and I was completely happy that we chose this one. Owners are very friendly, offering you juice on check in, trying to be helpful. We were leaving for safari at 5.30 am, still they were up to serve us fresh brewed coffee and packed breakfast. Rooms are new and clean....

We stayed here on the recommendation of our guide while visitng Yala National Park and were not disappointed. Lovely lake-side location amongst padi fields. The welcome is very warm and the food amongst the best we had in Sri Lanka. Delicious curry and fresh fruit from their own garden. Rooms are spacious and clean and it is good value. Recommended.
