It was a nice stay because we got a upgrade to the treehouse.
Strangely enough we had yo pay for the lunch during the safari, in the program it was included.
The drive was 12 hours, which is too long, so we shortend it.

Had such an amazing stay at Wilpattu Tree House! We stayed at the top storey of the treehouse and we were treated to a stunning view of the tree line. The balcony was perfect to soak in the serene and peaceful surroundings. There is literally a branch coming through the walls, so I would suggest using the mosquito net when sleeping. There were some mosquitoes and lizards in the room at night, but we weren’t bothered by them. All part of the treehouse experience! The toilet and shower were in good condition, and the air conditioning and appliances all worked fine too.
We had the buffet dinner at the restaurant the two nights we were there. And the food was simply delicious! Do take a walk by the small lake near the compound, it was a nice stroll with stunning scenery. Saw some deer in the distance too!

We stayed for 2 nights in Tree house Deluxe Room which is apparently the properties best accommodation.
Given the properties location it is well presented. Our tree house room was on the third floor. The last of the stairs to the room are reasonably steep and care needs to be taken.
The room itself is fairly basic with no safe apart from a lockable cabinet. The outside sitting area is a pleasant place to sit and take in the surrounds.
The bathroom on the other hand is grubby and unpleasant. The shower cubicle strangely has nowhere to store soap or shampoo and is severely stained (photos attached). The toilet hose leaked and continued to fall on the floor. The door handle came away from the door.
Our room was not serviced, and on enquiry we told that the regular housekeeper was away and the backup was not up to standard. What the .........
The staff is friendly enough and the manager and his assistant took time to speak with us whenever possible. The food is adequate and plentiful. The beer was cold.
We were told that elephants, from time to time, pass through the field in front of the hotel on their way to the nearby village. In fact, we were told in the early hours of the morning we arrived the elephants went to the village destroying a mango tree and some fences. Is this possibly the age old story ...”you should have been here yesterday..”. Low and behold that night at about 8pm there they were, several elephants not more than 100 metres in front of our tree house, passing through the field again on their way to the village. What a sight !!!
We were only there two nights and given its location the property, apart from the bathroom, was OK as it is the closest property to the safari park. Would we recommend the property – too close to call.

the whole place was nice. we stayed at a tree house room, the view was very nice. the staff were friendly. the room needs a little renovation. the food was simple and delicious.
considering staying in the heart of nature and with all the trees around, expect the insects.
