I highly advise against staying overnight in Pinnawala... but if you have to do so, then I would recommend this guest house. Pinnawala is much better for a day trip only for the elephant sanctuary and then to watch them bathe in the river. In the area there are no produce stands or markets. Everything completely closes down by 4:30pm... More
