We stayed at Richards Cabanas for two very pleasant nights. The food was excellent, the host was very accommodating and friendly, the villa was clean and spacious with a really nice stream running down the side. The Host also organised a trip to Yala for us which was very reasonable and of top quality. Highly recommend.

Stayed 2 nights in Tissa at Richard Cabanas. Anjit is a great host. The place is neat and clean, surrounded by nature. The food is awesome and the facilities on par with a 4* hotel. Staying on the terrace and enjoying a cup of tea was a great way to relax after a full day safari.

I stayed here for 3 nights to relax and to visit Yala. The owner arranged our trip to Yala along with driver and lunch at what I believe was a good price. The cabana was clean, comfortable with excellent wifi coverage. I spent a whole day just sitting on the veranda watching the local birds along the small river next...

We stayed here for 2 nights in June to go to Yala National Park. The cabanas are situated next to a lovely river and the rooms are clean and spacious. Furthermore, the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating and even packed us a lunch to take on the safari.

We travelled Sri Lanka staying in different places most nights and out of all the places we stayed this was by far the best. The owner was so friendly and polite (like most Sri Lankans). The bungalow was clean and situated in relaxing quiet blissful gardens. After a long day in the safaris its the perfect place to relax in...

I stayed last week for 2 nights solo so I could go to Yala for a safari. The place is great and it is all because of Ajith. He was so welcoming and his wife's food is amazing. Up there with the best I've had in Sri Lanka. Thank you for looking after me, the place felt like home!

We stayed at Richard Cabanas for one night after our afternoon safari to Yala. The cabana was lovely, very clean and just next to a river. We had a really good and fresh dinner and a great breakfast, both on our private terrace. The fruits from our breakfast came from their own garden. The host was very kind and attentive.
