“Well placed lakeside hotel near the sites of Polonnaruwa. Rooms are simple yet very comfortable with breathtaking vistas - which can also be enjoyed from the terrace and the swimming pool. Luxuriant gardens and an Ayurvedic centre. A secluded spot to relax in and explore the wildlife in the area. ”

Hotel Overview

“The hotel is rather low key but the terrace overlooks the vast ‘tank’ (reservoir) with its islands and low lying, tree-covered hills. It offers wonderful long views at sunrise and sunset, with plenty of bird life. The large, well-maintained and luxuriant gardens, plus a good pool, go some way to mitigating the rather uninspiring architecture of the place . There is an excellent ayurvedic centre. The dining room is a bit dark and school-like, but the Sri Lankan menu is good.”
