Its a large bungalow like building with large rooms. The staff are very kind. The food served is average. (Mostly rice and curry) The hotel has a large swimming pool which adds to its overall experience. Its also in close proximity to the Udawalawe Safari Park.

Spent one night as part of a roundtrip in Sri Lanka. Maybe we were the only guests for that particular time. We arrived in the evening, and the big empty hotel and the cca 15 staffmembers were a bit scary at the first glance. Kind of ghost castle feeling. We were even considering leaving the place. But after a while,...

Sobana Hotel is located in a secluded area aiming at tourists planning to take the Udawalawe safari tour. Yet, the hotel itself is almost equally attractive with nice accomodations in colonial style, the best food we have had in Sri Lanka and a luxurious swimming pool, which was essential to be cooled of on a hot day. On top of...

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is on a beautiful location by a large lagoon. It is very convenient to the nature park for safaris - about a 15/20 minute drive. We arranged a safari through the hotel for 5000 rupees. We weren't told this didn't include park fees which are 3100 per person which was a bit...

We had chosen this hotel due to its closeness to the Udawalawe national park which is a 20-30 min car ride away. The hotel was a real surprise, more luxurious than we had expected with a beautiful garden, pools and great balcony view over the close by lake. We were the only guests at the moment, the hotel is apparently...

Have stayed at this hotel more than once and I must say that the hotel is a pleasant surprise considering what's in and around the area. Very quiet hotel with super helpful staff. Although it lacks variety, food quality is good and rooms are decently well maintained. There's a nice swimming pool if you are in mood for a dip....

Stayed here with kids as a base to explore Uda Walawe and it was great. Lovely big pool and super helpful staff. Rooms ok but we were out pretty much all day. Decent selection of food on the buffet. Seemed quite empty when we visited and the staff were eager to attract more guests and given the above they will...

Firstly,we didn't originally book this hotel but after Agoda issued a voucher but failed to confirm our booking and the next choice was now gone we agreed to the Hotel Sobana after checking out their website and reading reviews on trip advisor. To say we were disappointed with this hotel would be an understatement.It could actually be a nice hotel...
