We stayed at Richard's Cabanas for one night and really enjoyed it. We wanted to extend two more nights, but unfortunately, it was already fully booked. The two cabanas are set in a lush garden on a quiet street. There's lots of birdlife so it's perfect for some relaxation. The room itself is quite large with a nice bathroom with...

If you are looking for a launching pad to go to Yala then this is very decent. There are only three guest rooms so this is a nice small place. Rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. But if you are looking for luxury then this is not for you. It is comfortable but basic. The manager Ajith is a...

The house is beautiful with good beds, ac and a large bathroom. We were welcomed with a fresh fruit juice. Excellent as a home base for going on safari to the Yala Park. We also did the barbecue which was nice with regards to the setting. The food and the wine were not worth the 3.000 rupees though. Breakfast and...

We spent a couple of nights at Richards Cabanas during our recent trip to Sri Lanka. We have stayed there before and, once again, it was lovely. Just three cabanas next to a small river. Very clean and comfortable. Adjit was very welcoming and helpful and told my husband where to go to see more birds. He arranged an excellent...

We stayed at Richards Cabanas for two very pleasant nights. The food was excellent, the host was very accommodating and friendly, the villa was clean and spacious with a really nice stream running down the side. The Host also organised a trip to Yala for us which was very reasonable and of top quality. Highly recommend.
