Well managed property, comfortable and clean. The Chef is excellent and is well supported by his staff who are all very courteous, warm and friendly. This my 2nd visit and the service levels have been consistent and even better I must say. Well done and keep it up. Cheers!

As they say with any great tourist destination, accommodation is all about three things - location, location, location. That said Boulders has everything else going for it as well. Just 10 minutes from the doorstep of the park the property has a wonderful frontage, just walking distance from the Kirinda beach. Meals were always excellent - one day on request...

Great for relaxing, card...

Loved everything about Boulders. Great staff, super chef and the whole set up;clean and simple. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Everything was so conveniently situated with great attention paid to details. For instance, every bedside had a socket and it's bedside light doing away with the hassle of each one charging their phones in turn. Good job Boulders!

My family chose this bungalow when ever they think of going to Yala. We have stayed at 5* 4* hotels and resorts everywhere in Sri Lanka but I should say this charming bungalow gives the real family holiday experience. Nothing to complaint, Sarath and Gnanadasa has a good professional background. Sarath has worked for more than 30 years at one...
