The staff here are lovely and so helpful and accommodating! They showed us a nearby watering hole that animals come to drink from at night and we were lucky enough to see a big group of elephants. The room we stayed in was lovely and the view from our balcony was incredible, highly recommend

We stayed in the tree house which had a fabulous balcony view. The room was cosy and gelt secure. Just a short walk away there is a water hole where on our first night, we saw 4 wild elephants emerge to drink and bathe at sunset! Nice food served in the restaurant, very helpful staff, lovely surroundings and they can organise your safari from here.

This was a nice, quaint place in a very convenient location to the entrance to the park. It’s literally a one-minute jeep ride from the park office (where you get your jeep entrance permit) to the hotel. As with many places in Sri Lanka, the food is wonderful and abundant. The service is exceptional and the staff is very accommodating. There is a nice balcony off the room to enjoy the breeze and look out onto the trees and field below. Because you are right across the fence from a national park, you are going to have little critters and other animals in and around your room and the grounds. This is to be expected and makes the experience feel closer to nature. The rooms have AC, which is nice because it can get a little warm once the patio doors are closed and the wind dies down. In the morning, you might be lucky and see some nice birds from the room: hornbills, peacocks, etc. We saw a few monkeys darting around and at night, some elephants wandered into the field nearby. It’s a cool experience feeling so close to a national park.

Wilpattu national park is one of the 2 best leopard spotting destinations in the world. Amazing place for wildlife lovers as hotel is full of wildlife. Included with our incredible safari ride, in which we saw 3 leopards and a sloth bear, we saw 71 species of animals in total at a two night stay in Wilpattu. The rooms are very reasonably priced for the amount of food given and the rooms size and comfort ability. The staff are nice and the manager is extremely informative and friendly. They gave toast instead of the regular buffet for my father who was sick. For people who have a special interest in birds there is a bunt you can walk along which is less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel. It is safe as it is surrounded by an electric fence and is 5 minutes walk from the entrance. The experience was the best ever trip I have had.
