My wife and I stayed 1 night at TOC. Another night or 2 would have been better if we had the time. TOC is perfect for a quiet and relaxing few days. The raised cabins are large and comfortable and the big surrounding deck is great for chilling out in the surrounds of the jungle. The staff are very friendly...

This is a small 9 chalet type hotel. The bungalows are spread out within a very well cared for garden and organic kitchen garden too. There is a very good restaurant within the complex that has a most relaxed atmosphere in the evenings. The staff, with special mention of the chef and restaurant staff, are all really welcoming, rooms spacious...

You access the place though a hanging bridge. On the other side a guard adds further security to your already good feeling. Nice restaurant with personal and high quality service. Meat is not a speciality of Sri Lanka, so I suggest to order whatever else and you won't be deceived. Good breakfast, with "custom" omelets, etc. Swimming Pool. Very quiet...

This "eco-resort" was virtually empty, this being between seasons, but staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, including the chef and server who rustled up supper; room was clean and fully furnished; the most-accommodating manager gave an escorted tour of the resort's own gardens and showed off the working elephant; naturalist, Dhilip De Alwis, showed us a plethora of...

Everything was perfect. The rooms were nice and clean, the pool area was beautiful and very peaceful. Great food. Lots of wildlife - monkeys, birds, lizards - and a very enthutiastic naturalist. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
