"A wonderful palace to have the perfect mix of indoor camping experience for those who don't want to spend the night at the mercy of the wilderness. The staff is friendly and the food is great. If you want tougher drinks, staff will take care of that as well. I love the place."

"Very unique experience. You have the feeling of being in the jungle. The tents are comfortable. The staff is very helpful and professional. The food is very good. I did not have high expectations before coming here but after spending 3 days here, it was one of our best accommodation in Srí Lanka. We were here with kids. They also enjoyed staying here. The pool is superb. The food is delicious. The camp is marvelous"
