“Very nice staff, the accomodation were clean despite an invasion of ants in the bathroom. Very close to the entrance of Sinharaja forest but a bit isolated. The food was good.”
“Great staff, kind and always ready to help. They wake up super early to prepare your breakfast before your trip to the Sinharaja forest. The place is peaceful and beautiful with a lot of wildlife around to discover (the staff will help you). We spent two nights and we highly recommend this place. Also it’s really close to the forest entrance (3 km).”
“Location: Lodge is situated within 25 minutes walking distance. But the road to the park is interesting in itself: you can see some birds’ species, and, if you’re lucky enough, endangered monkeys. Room: Clean, well equipped, although lacking a mosquito net, so be prepared to sleep with a bunch of friends:) The room has a nice balcony, overlooking the forest. Moreover, the cabana itself is almost on the edge of the forest, so you can feel a total immersion into nature with some commodities handy.
Service: The staff is off the charts. They are very attentive and adjustable to your needs, e.g. they can prepare the breakfast very early if you’re going off to some early birding.”
