We Stayed at the FarCry Resort with Sri Lankan friends yesterday and had a really wonderful stay. We ate a traditional Sri Lankan lunch and I have to say it was one of the best meals I have eaten in Sri Lanka. The vegetable curries were especially fantastic and so fresh tasting - despite distinctive spicing the taste of the just-picked vegetables (from the hotels own gardens) shone through. The more international style evening meal was also good, and the Sri Lankan breakfast was as good as the lunch.
The rooms were spacious, tastefully furnished, clean and very comfortable. TV, air con, ceiling fan, ate and coffee cafetière provided.The bathrooms were well fitted with everything you need available, e.g. Toiletries and Hairdryer. The pool was clean and very pleasant, pool towels are provided. The hotel grounds are lovely, with beautiful birds and wild life. All members of staff were attentive and charming, thank you to all of them.
There is a lot to do in the local area, although they all require a drive. The access road to the hotel is bumpy so be prepared, but once you are there it will be worth the effort! We would definitely return and recommend this hotel.

The FarCry hotel is about 800 m away from the main road. As the to the hotel road was to dirty we couldn't drive there by ourselves. Our driver then called at the hotel and they picked as up.
The hotel is very basic but clean. The chef tried his best. The staff is friendly and helpful but there English is limited. We were the only guests at this time. It was okay for one night.

First of all, I must thank the owner of this place for giving value for money. The staff from Manager Chaminda, Chef down to the two assistants were so nice and polite.
Special mention must be made of the quality of food and the menu arrangement. It was well balanced and of the highest quality . Taste was exceptionally good.
We were looked after like royalty and I will go again. We plucked organically grown mango and veggies.
The best thing was our safari to Wasgamuwa National Park on Christmas eve 24th 2014. We came across one of the biggest Leopards I have ever see just 10 meters away.
Head to tail it must have measured easily 7 feet !
Here Kingfisher Safari’s did an excellent job and we had a super tracker and driver Sugath.

Good location in the middle of a farm in a rural area..!!
Spacious rooms and superb pool !
Amazing food is the best thing !
Calm and quite ! Very friendly staff and excellent service !
Few hours drive to very scenic places and just five minutes walk to the river Mahaweli !!!
Bit over priced in terms of furnishing of the rooms and bathrooms and finishings of the buildings..
