Stayed here for one night with a plan to do the safari the next morning. Unfortunately a separate company let us down with our driver so our trip from Galle to Yala ended up taking over 5 hours in a 30 year old banger with no air con, and we just decided to go to our next hotel early the next day as we had a few things planned there. That'll teach me for saving a few quid by booking a driver from outside a bar in Galle-not least because of the almighty bollocking I had off the Mrs when the blame was inevitably thrust at me. I'm joking (but only as she saw me write that). Anyway, the hotel and its staff are fantastic. To be honest, once we arrived and had a little scout around taking pictures of crocs in the lake about 60m from the swimming pool, the prospect of sleeping in the wild (albeit it in wonderfully appointed chalets) became a little daunting. The little grey langur monkeys are cute but were a bit of a surprise when I met a group of them sat outside our room when I nipped back for my wallet. They happily wander about amongst the chalets, as well as wild boars (small ones) and insects the likes of which I've never seen. The guides are always on hand around the resort however as the management urge everyone to be escorted between their room and the restaurants at night, so there is really nothing to worry about. The little monkey sods woke me up jumping in the metal roof at 6 am though. Luckily I saw the funny side by about 7 am. The breakfast is excellent and the evening buffet was absolutely superb. In fact it served the best fish curry I had all holiday. It'll set you back about Â£25 a head including drinks, taxes and tip, but it is very good quality and could cost a lot more given there's no competition. If you're planning a trip to Yala, the cinnamon wild is not to be missed.
"What an experience"
As soon as you drive into this incredible hotel and see alligators sunning themselves on the rocks in the middle of the lake next door you are not you are in for a special treat. Any hotel where you need a member of the hotel security team to accompany you at night when you walk between your room and the main dining room tells you that you truly are surrounded by some of the most amazing animals on earth and it is not uncommon to see wild boar just metres from the hotel. Our room and the food was incredible but the only slight complaint was that it was impossible to keep your room cool during the day - as the electricity cuts off when you take your key with you - so it would take a while for the air conditioning to kick into action each night when you returned from dinner or your safari. But that was only a minor detail for an adventure as good as anything you will find in Africa.
"Love this Resort!"
This is a late review (Stayed in Dec 2015). We stayed 2 nights in a chalet pretty near the reception. We have chosen to stay near as we do not like to always trouble the hotel staff to accompany us to the restaurants in the evening. We have encountered a wild boar, rabbits and many monkeys at dawn and dusk. We always make it a point to go for dinner before dark and anyway we have to wake up really early for the safari. It is advisable to get the hotel staff to accompany you to the restaurants. When comes to hotel rooms I am quite particular. I came here with a lower expectation as this resort is built in the wild I must say that the room we have chosen was pretty impressive. It was clean, comfortable and nicely done up except there may be some sand on the floor if you walk barefooted otherwise it was quite clean. We did walked out to the lake just outside the resort which I strongly advised against doing so on your own. We saw lots of birds, large crocodiles in a distance, an eagle and water buffalos which one of them wanted to charge at us. Luckily 2 dogs were following us all the way begging for food as we were feeding them. We were constantly watching the behaviour of these 2 dogs as they are more sensitive to danger. They left after we were heading back to the resort. As we were nearing the bend next to a mud pool something emerged from the water. Luckily it was a smaller crocodile and it went back into the water quickly. We picked up our speed and left the area asap. The scenery at the beach was spectacular which is very near the resort. About the pool, no comment as we didn't swim in it. Our tour package was inclusive of all the meals. I must say that the buffet dinner has quite a good spread and most of the dishes were tasty. Given a chance will return to this resort. For an urban dwellers like us, staying here is an adventure itself. In fact we enjoyed our time spent at the resort more than the safari.
Sorry, I don't like giving bad reviews, but I would not advice anyone to visit this hotel. Basically it was swarming with beetles. All over the floor of our room, on the walls, on our clothes, in the restaurant - you name an area and they were there. We were told that they had heavy rainfall which pushed the beetles to the surface and there was nothing they could do - not convinced I'm afraid. We had to stop the first night as our safari was at 5am in the morning, but I had our second night cancelled as I could not have coped with another night. We had dinner there which was amazing - the food was delicious, but you really can't enjoy your dinner with beetles climbing on your shoes and clothing! We found more beetles in the car the following day and when I opened my suitcase at Nuwara Eliya, there were more beetles. You know what it's like if you know someone has headlice, everyone starts itching, well for days I was still looking for beetles. The reason I've given it 2 stars and not 1 is because the staff were helpful and polite (they accepted our cancellation) and the room was OK. I know some will say, well what do you expect when you visit a jungle? Well this isn't my first visit to a jungle hotel or a safari park and what I don't expect is to be invaded by beetles. It reminded me of the beetles in the film "The Mummy". Yuk! Would not go back if they paid me to.
"Interesting but a little tired"
The lodge has an interesting setting located on the edge of the reserve. Great to have boar and monkeys wandering about the resort. The rooms are comfortable and well fitted but a little tired as is the pool area with tiles lifting. The customer service people try hard and are delightful. Careful if you use the laundry service. We had a T Shirt returned with a hole bunt through both back and front.
