Such a beautiful resort that feels one with nature. We saw this resort on our way to Aberdeen Waterfall and thought this would be a wonderful place to spend a romantic getaway. The manager Ranjan was extremely helpful and suggested that we book the hillside Cabana and we fell in love with it the moment we went in to see.

The cabana is made out of wood and stone. It doesn't look like much on the outside but when you go in, the interior is so romantic and you have a view to die for. On one side it's the tea estate and on the front, the splendid view of green misty mountains.

They have a natural pool which has water flowing in from the mountains and flowing out of the pool down the mountain. So you have fresh mountain water in the pool, no chlorine and yet clean. It's pretty cold but not uncomfortable. Perhaps because it's fresh water. (Or maybe because we were so happy it was impossible to feel uncomfortable)

The service is superb. Everyone is eager to help you out any way they can and they go the extra mile to make your stay truly relaxing and memorable. We ordered Sri Lankan food and they tasted delicious.

You can go on a walk in the tea estate but keep an eye out for leeches.

I think the other rooms are pretty basic. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely recommend the cabanas. The cabana has a double bed and a single bed so it should be good for a small family as well.

Room Tip: Choose the wooden cabana as they provide the best views and have best interior also.

One of the best place to stay in a wooden cottage covered with tea plantation.Staff was very friendly and they prepared what we like to have for meals.Food was very tasty.When you go there book wooden cottages.They have currently two.Other rooms are inside the hotel.So wooden cottages are the best for enjoy nature, to see nice mountains and listen to bird singing early without disturbances.Pool was good natural water comes from the hill.Can visit Aberdeen Falls with a guide from hotel and beware of leeches everywhere.Keep salt water bottle or lemon juice with you.Currently ,the entrance road( to hotel) is very bad like off road.They said they will construct it soon.

Room Tip: Choose the wooden cottages only.Can stay without noises and disturbance.Also best place to enjoy nature from outside.

We stayed at Maskeliya Oya before we climbed Adam's Peak. It's a very welcoming guest house and the owner in particular is very happy to chat (his English is excellent). The room was comfortable - perhaps in need of a little TLC but everything we needed including hot water.

The food is fantastic and the staff are very smiley and polite.

Worth noting that the drive to the start of the Adam's Peak climb is just under an hour. We're quite fit but had ample time to make the climb before sunrise (left the guest house at 12:45am. Be aware that during the busy pilgrim season, particularly full moon and Saturday nights, you cannot expect to climb Adam's Peak without queuing behind a barrage of people!

I cannot think any better place to stay couple of nights to explore Aberdeen and Laxapana Water falls. Both the water falls are within hours reach. The manager of the place is very knowlegable about the area and a True nature lover. The restaurant staff prepares Delicious native Sri Lankan meals. The rooms are very clean and plesaant. I will recommend this place to any traveller without hesitation. Look forward to visit the place again to Treck Seven Virgins mountain range.
