I visited this place for the first time last January with friends. Rates were reasonable for rooms and food. Food was great. They even cooked stuff we brought for a small fee. Staff was very polite and complied with all our requests including bringing snacks to the rooms during heavy rains. The stream was absolutely wonderful for a evening dip....

This was my third stay and still the food is awsome. After munching down oily food through out the life, this is a really good place for traditional Sri Lankan food. No words to express. The owner is a genuine mid aged person who is always observing the staff. Worth, clean rooms. The stream is a super stress relasing joint....

There are two roads to travel. 1. From Baddegama highway exit. This road is good than the 2nd path. around 30 minutes traveling time. 2. Form Pinnaduwa highway exit. This road is worst. Because still road is repairing. Please use baddegama highway exit for traveling.

Went to Kanneliya Forest Resort for the day yesterday, but felt the standard has gone down. The room was fairly clean and there was still slightly warm water from the geezer, but room smelled moldy and even the bed sheets felt damp....quite run down from our last visit a couple of years ago. The biggest disappointment was food. Wasn't good...

I was there few times back and stayed one day. That was a nice place and we can have a natural bath with cool water stream. Rooms ware comfortable clean with enough space. It was close to Kanneliya forest entrance(about 300-400 meters).

Don’t get caught in the Kanneliya Forest Reserve trap. If you are lucky you might escape with just a day wasted on a day tour from the Hotel. If you are really unlucky you might waste 3 days/2 nights staying either in the extremely rundown Forest Department Bungalow which is like a poor orphanage in all aspects, or book online...

Every where kanneliya rain forest and we can here water sounds and birds sounds to the hotel. Very small hotel, But it is 300m to rain forest entrance. That is big advantage. foods also up to certain level. Liquors we have to bring. there is no Bar. very friendly staff and owner Anura also helpful to us.

This place is amazing and takes you back to nature. It is not know on the tourist circuit so not many people know about it. The resort is not far from the entrance of the Forest Department Center. To be going into a rain forest within one hours drive from Galle is a pleasant surprise. The Resort has about 10...
