Elephant overlook
Perfect location on the Maha Oya river, directly above where the elephants are brought to bath and play. Be sure to take a room overlooking the river. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating! Also, make a point to be on the balcony facing the river at sunset... and look up! There is a large colony of fruit bats that nest up river and at sunset they fly as a group into the forest to feed!

A hidden gem in, a must for elephant enthusiasts
Amazing view for a very fair price. The hotel offers premium housekeeping services and the food is great. But most importantly, you get to enjoy an amazing view of elephants bathing in the nearby river most of the day!

A life time experience.
We loved staying at the hotel, right in amongst the elephants. Watching them bathe in the river and so close to the elephant orphanage. Bottle feed two baby elephants.

Elephants!
I was nervous when checking into this apartment after reading some negative reviews, and I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The front desk staff was not friendly at all, but the rooms were better than expected. They were clean and the AC worked well. The location cannot be any better. When we were eating the delicious Sri Lankan breakfast, we got to watch elephants walking around the river and enjoying themselves. It was really cute when we had ordered the Western breakfast, you could tell that our server was disappointed that we wouldn't be trying the traditional food so he ended up bringing us a taste as well. We were glad that he did, as it was delicious!! I highly recommend staying here if you want to be in the elephant action. They walk the elephants down to the river right in front of the hotel, and it is magical.

Great location to see elephants bathing!
Good basic hotel. Clean, good service and comfortable. During our stay there were 3 weddings on the first day and 2 on the second, which made it a bit crowded, especially parking. Great location for seeing elephants bathing - just below the hotel and they walked right past us on their way to the river.
