Our room was spacious. Glass covered three sides and the high roof framed views out into the canopies of trees. The entrance area features a muddy water hole just outside with wild life galore. Facilities were good - not the same as you would expect of a city hotel but capturing the adventure of being surrounded by nature. A spectacular rock climb borders the 35 acres complex and was perhaps what captivated us the most!
My family and I enjoyed a peaceful weekend in the middle of a jungle, Warmly welcomed by the Staff and their hospitality was excellent. The property was hygienically well maintained. The Rooms was very spacious and the view of the lake was breathtaking. The place was very calm and quite. Food was absolutely delicious. Overall everything was perfect and would highly recommend.
We had a good feeling about the resort even prior to our arrival. Hakim, was super friendly and very cooperative in terms of giving out all the necessary information. He was also very prompt in answering messages pertaining to the booking and nice enough to recommend the type of accommodation we should go for. The manager, Mr Nimal was kind enough to communicate with us before our arrival. He was very responsible to check with regards to our meals on the given day. His welcome was warm, friendly and he made sure at very instance to make our stay very comfortable. Mr Nimal was also very concerned about our safety on the way back home and made it his responsibility to call and check with us to ensure that we had arrived home without any hassle. He is also very knowledgeable about the organisms that one could see and hear at this wonderful eco resort. Ruwan, provided us with the utmost service at the restaurant. He was super conscientious. He made sure that all the dietary needs were met. Ruwan, was extremely friendly and was kind enough to share his expertise in relation to the locations we should visit during our stay. The resort had an abundance of nature hidden within the premises itself. The sound of birds from the crack of dawn until the end of the day, friendly visit from the monkeys around forest, a wonderful hike to a rock to experience a breathtaking view of the landscape surrounding the premises, a beautiful lake with a myriad of biodiversity. The food was very fresh, great presentation, full of interesting flavors and the portions were just the right amount! We had the opportunity to meet Samitha a wonderful trishaw driver who took us to see one of the attractions close to the resort. He was very responsible and helpful guiding us through. Our stay at the ‘Minivet Villa’ was very secluded. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. The villa is the furthest from all the other villas and the restaurant. We were very lucky to have stayed there. …
The calm and tranquil atmosphere that this location offers is amazing. I went there with my wife and 4 other friends and we enjoyed every minute of it. Our only regret was that we stayed for one night when we should have stayed for longer. The hotel has some amazing rooms that have views to match. The staff are also exceptionally friendly. Overall we loved the place and would definitely stay here again.
