For our stay we booked a regular room and one of the two tree houses available. The rooms were of good quality but the tree house was simply stunning. My kids loved to stay there and watch the surroundings from the tree tops. Just be aware of the bugs in the evening, keep the door and windows closed ;). The...

Loved this place! Stayed in the tree house and was pleasantly surprised at the tree growing through the bathroom and windows opening into the paddy field. It really is a eco-friendly place -little insects make it through the mesh so people who fear insects should stay in the rooms in the main building. Once you dust them off, and switch...

A wonderful location literally in the middle of nowhere! The rooms are large and airy but no air-conditioning. However you can leave the windows open as they all have netting to prevent insects and mosquitoes getting in. With the fan on it's not too warm. The room and toilet were very clean and they even had tea/coffee making amenities plus...

It was nice but in comparison to other places we stayed it was a tad expensive for what it was. The hosts were lovely and we enjoyed our stay. The pool was the best bit…oh and breakfast too! There's a great massage place not far from here and well worth a stop especially if you have climbed Lion's Rock that...

First night, we booked the newly opened tree house because it looked nice on the photos. I should have asked for a room change as soon as I opened the lid of the toilet, it was infested by all kinds of insects. The cups and glasses were dirty. The toilet paper holder fell apart upon touching and the light bulb...

One night stay on our trip around Sri Lanka. Simply furnished but comfortable rooms with a large bathroom and great shower. We booked a triple room and were pleasantly surprised to find a second single bedroom rather than all three beds in one room. The gardens and pool area are really beautiful and lush and are very secluded - a...

We stayed there for 2 nights and they were among the best of our trip. The rooms are nice, the pool is small but in a lovely garden. The owners are very attentive and sweet. A special mention for the food which is just sublime. It's a set menu but it will please even picky eaters.
