“Idyllic home away from home with Mother Nature ...!”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were visiting from Singapore and our stay at Far Cry was absolutely fantastic. The bungalow blends so well with its natural surroundings and has all the creature comforts offered with discreetness, class and a deep harmony with the natural beauty of it's surroundings. Shanta and his colleague were excellent and we are very grateful for the way they looked after us.
Thank you Yohan and Manjari for the opportunity to experience such a wonderful place!

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in May 2015

Second visit of us for 2 days. Wish I could have stayed longer. One of the best nature retreats I have ever stayed. Cant beat the taste of Shantha's food, the cook, care taker...etc. one of the nicest human beings ever met. Will visit soon again. And Thank you Yohann for maintaining the true essence of the place.

“Great place to stay for the cultural triangle”

This is a bit out of Habarana so make sure you print out the map, our tax driver wasn't totally sure where it was. But what a great place to end up. Very private on a very large property, there is a caretaker and a chef who provided us with great meals every night. It was a great pleasure to come home every evening to a meal of a very high standard in such a rural setting. Take your own alcohol but the staff are more than happy to put it on ice and look after you.

Owner was great with communication.

“I died and went to heaven....”

I died and went to heaven. I spent seven days in the heart of Sri Lanka's elephant country. Quiet, a place to be in nature in the center of some of the best national parks, birds elephants trees and village people.

I went there to get away from people, write and be in a natural setting. Great food, a host with lots of information and a very special place.

The architectural design is modern, clean yet very much part of the place. Clean spacious and amazing.

“Above our expectations”

We stayed at Far Cry 3 nights and the place is very nice clean and quiet. We tought this was a very good choice. The location is a bit far from the Habarana village but this is perfect.
The warm welcome from Shanta (host) made a huge difference. The nature around the house is nice. The food prepared for us was also very good.
