  • The eco lodge exceeded our expectations. Muna and Carla were very welcoming and informative about the area. Muna dropped us to the temples on the first night and drove for our safari on the second. The lodge is built from locally sourced materials and the food is also served from stuff they have farmed or from local suppliers. They gave us a selection of delicious Sri Lankan food which was much appreciated. We loved our stay there.

  • Great time spent in this very peaceful and welcoming eco lodge. We regretted not having booked more time there. If you wish to go on a half-day or full-day safari it is ideal, ask Muna and she will give you all the necessary information before your arrival.

  • Incredible food. We couldn’t recommend this place enough to our family and food. We intended to go out and try the food in the city however after one meal we were absolutely hooked. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner (and dessert) at Gem river, and oh boy what a treat! Each meal was different using local products and each meal was better than the next!!

    Cass2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place! The lodges are compact and comfortable. (Be carful of the doors there quite low I kept banging my head lol)The food is really delicious I loved the banana curry. Muna and staff took good care of me advised of all things to do in the area.I was only there for 2 nights so had to pack a lot into the short stopover. You must go see the Temple ceremony’s and walk round the lake and obviously I did do the safari tour all arranged by muna. I did see the leopards in fact I saw two young leopards practicing there hunting skill chasing a porcupine around.I did get chance to use the river for bathing because the river had been in flood maybe next time.

  • Far away from all the sounds of traffic and so on is this a real gem to stay at a river that is also the border from the Yala Park and surrounded by trees with birds and other animals. The people help you with everything.

    Teunis2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Just wonderful. Super helpful hosts, pretty cottages, very close to the town. Very good food and a lot of very creative ideas on the whole area.

    Lisa2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was great place, as we asked about the place Muna has built and designed with his own hands, too beautiful! It is a very rustic experience! But there are jumping frogs in bathroom which is little scary if people dont like frogs !!! Haha

  • The stay at Upul's family was very good! The rooms look very nice and the spot under the porch is attractive. Everything was super arranged. For the safari we were picked up at the homestay. At night we could use the food there and it was a delicious curry. Thank you for staying at this beautiful spot.

  • Sanduns place is a little isolated but a very sweet out-house. The family are very kind and the food from mamas kitchen was absolutely delicious! -definitely recommend. There is only one bed for 3 people but it was comfy and the room was very clean. Air conditioning, towels and flannels are provided and it is only a 10 minute walk from the main village of kataragama. Definitely good value for money!

Sandun also give a good prize to go Safari. Yala is very nice, we saw a lot of animlas! The shower, air condition and the wifi runs perfect🙌🏻

  • A great place to stop over for a trip to Yala, food was excellent and A/C was a welcome reprieve

    Ashley2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was super relaxed. Sandun instantly made us feel like part of the family with his cute nieces and nephews running around and gave great local tips that we hadn't read about in the guide books. We booked a safari with Sandun and were not disappointed. A bunch of elephants, crocodiles, monkeys, birds and FIVE leopards later we returned to Kataragama. Sandun went out of his way to ensure that we had a memorable safari experience. The room itself is large, basic and has a rustic charm. It was very clean and finished to a great standard of detail. Location wise, it's a 10 minute walk to town where you can explore the pilgrimage site and try out great cheap eats.

    Mirko2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time! Anura and his family were excellent hosts. They gave us everything we needed for a comfortable and fun stay, specially all the yummy homemade Sri Lankan food!! The outdoor showers were the second highlight about our stay! Loved showering under he stars/coconut trees! Highly recommend staying here. We also did the day Safari, unfortunately we didn’t see any leopards and the Safari truck is not for those with a weak back, but we saw baby elephants playing in the muddy croc infested water, Yala National Park in all its glory, plenty for colorful birds and monkeys!

    Asavari2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We used the Heina resort as the base for our safari in Yala. A family of 5 of us comfortably shared one of the two eco-lodges, which was equipped with 4 double beds, air-con, mosquito nets and a fridge. Our toilet and shower block was right next door. We were well looked after by the staff, who made us very welcome and the food was great. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

    Lee2018-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best stays we've had so far! The people are way too lovely, the food is from another planet and the location is calm and beautiful! The way to the location is like a foretaste of the yala national park. Bhagya, one of the hosts, even showed us the nearby temple which combines three different religions and told us so many interesting facts about everything we wanted to know. Go there or go home!

    Laurie2018-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Heina nature resort was very enjoyable. Pictures are accurate, location is great, and Anura is a great host. The location is in the jungle, but that is what we enjoyed most about our experience there. I definitely recommend staying at Heina!

    Simrin2018-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is stunning, definitely a place to go... especially for the shower which was an amazing experience for us. Everybody was very helpful which makes it even more amazing! I recommend it for sure!

    Zohra2018-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing in many ways! Close to nature, beautiful birds and monkeys in the garden. We went to the temple one evening which was a wonderful experience. The highlight was, of course, safari with Bhagya. The food was amazingly good. All staff were very hospitable! Thank you Anura and all the staff!

    Anna2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • When I first booked this Airbnb I didn't realize how spacious it would be! This eco-resort was a gem in Kataragama, located near both of the famous temples that Kataragama is well known for. The resort itself was beautiful and well maintained by Anura and his staff. It is located right near the rice fields, so you are very to near to nature. It was an incredible experience to stay in this accommodation and experience Kataragama away from the typical hotel. On top of that breakfast was delicious! If you're looking for a unique stay for your time in Kataragama book your stay at Anura's eco-resort...you won't regret it. Thank you again!

  • I was a bit worried about this place at first because there weren’t many reviews or comments, but I booked anyway because the rooms looked cool. I showed up and IT’S A VEGAN ANIMAL SANCTUARY HOTEL WHERE THE GUESTS CAN PLAY WITH THE ANIMALS???????????? I played with a 1.5 year old monkey, some bunnies, a baby squirrel the size of your finger...and there were plenty of other animals roaming around the hotel, such as turkeys, roosters, peacocks, monitor lizards, and fish. If you don’t like being near animals, you should probably choose another place to stay. But if you’re a normal non-psychopathic human, this place is paradise. Also, all the guests hung out together at the large outdoor dining table. We all became friends as we played with the animals. The whole atmosphere was very laid back. We played music after dinner every night and talked. I heard that many of the other guests had extended their stays once they realized what a gem it was. The food was amazing. Best coconut sambol in the country. They also had eggs, milk and can get meat if you request it, but it was always kept separate. Yala safaris were competitively priced, including a guarantee that you’ll see animals, otherwise you’ll go again. The room was clean and had an incredibly cool style. The hotel grounds were beautiful. I was devastated that I had to cut my stay short and go home early due to the coronavirus, but I will definitely be back. Best hotel I’ve ever stayed at!

  • We really enjoyed our stay there; everything about this place is pure and spiritual, with evening celebrations happening in multiple temples and shrines. Humbhaha Resort is basically situated in the jungle, so the abundance of wildlife surrounding is as impressive as the Kataragama temple complex itself. The place is built in a distinct and charming way with lots of creative touches, the hospitality and atmosphere there remain a clear highlight of our trip to the island. We spent some time talking with the host, a wise man who offers all the help you can possibly need in that zone. He introduced us to the mythology surrounding the sacred multi-religious town of Kataragama. Wish we could stay there longer. Amazing place, most recommendable!

  • Amazing hospitality!

    Laryssa2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Keep it simple! You do not really need to say more. An idyllic eco-farm without much frills, but with a lot of charm! The temperature in the mud hut was very good to endure, the bed for a 1.95m tall people a little small, but for two still good to handle. The view from the tree house to the river was just relaxing and the food was incredibly good for an acceptable price !! Those who value communication, food and the environment rather than luxury are in very good hands here.

    Etienne2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great option for us! Rob was an incredible host who toured us around the property when we first arrived and personally drove to town to get us dinner when our dinner plans fell through. The eco friendliness was nice to see and we appreciated having access to RO water. I would 10/10 stay here again.

    Leah2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here! It was one of the last stops of our trip in Sri Lanka and one of the best. We arrived about 2 hrs earlier than expected but that was not at all a problem. Had the most amazing breakfast/lunch/diner, all home cooked with fresh ingredients. On our second day Robert arranged a safari for us. We had a kind driver who was amazing at spotting animals, because of him we were lucky enough to see 2(!!) leopards and lots of other animals. The driver also arranged a very nice breakfast and lunch for us. The accomodation was near a river where you could have a nice cooling swim. There was also a kind driver arranged who brought us to our next destination, with a super nice drivingstyle. Would totally recomend going here to have a relax few days in the beautiful nature.

    Charlotte2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot close to Yala National Park. Rob upgraded us to the cabana because it was available. Nice bonfire area perfect for chilling in the evenings and a great property overall! Surrounded by nature and quiet place to relax. And cool jungle shower. Highly recommend this spot as a base to explore the Yala area!

    Ellie2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rob has created a piece of paradise where you can open your heart and senses to Sri Lanka's natural world. I spent hours sitting by the lake and the river immersed in the everyday dramas of remarkable wildlife I had only ever seen on a television. The quiet company of fellow travellers shared the same experiences as well as the delights of home cooked traditional cuisine, now cooked on the premises. Watching my dinner cooking on a wood burning stove was another incredible first. I can't rate this place enough! Spectacular, simple pleasures!

    Karen2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Roberts eco-farm. The location is absolutely stunning and very peaceful. Robert is a very welcoming host that takes great care in making you feel at home and comfortable. We had a nice bicycle ride and visited kataragama and the natural area around it. We will definitely come back!

    Marijn2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We extended our stay at Ackara Vissa and moved from the Cottages to this traditional mud house. It was a great experience living in this beautiful, fully natural house out in the nature. Rob and his team have created a little paradise and there hospitality is amazing. Looking forward to visit them again during our next Sri Lanka trip.

The hosts here are lovely and are always happy to help and serve you. We also did a safari with them and we enjoyed it very much. We would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Tissa.

  • I had such a great stay in the Natural Cabanas. The place, the people, the location are just amazing. Super close to the beach, loved falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of ocean. I felt so close to the nature there. Really grateful for all the care and help Malith and his family provided. Very kind and thoughtful. The food (mama’s food) is soooo delicious, their rice and curry is the best I had in Sri Lanka. I would be happy to return to this place. Thank you again. Bohoma Istuti

  • The property is located near the bus station. The accommodations are in a quiet back yard. Ours had its own entrance and hammock and outside seating. We also booked a safari tour. We didn't see a leopard, but we saw a lot of elephants. All in all we can recommend the accommodation.

  • Rooms are clean with basic necessities. Signed up for their full day tour and I am not disappointed. Malith was our driver and guide and he is an expert on the park's area. In the morning we already managed to spot leopards 3 times, some elephants, ox, crocodiles and many different birds. He is also very skilled at moving our vehicle to the right spot among the crowd to catch a good view of the animals. Malith is also knowledgeable about these animals and he's able to explain their characteristics and park behavior to you. I am very pleased with my experience at the park. Highly recommended!

  • The room was clean and arranged a chartered car to Bundala for us, a very pleasant journey.

    Yu2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation conditions are ordinary, but his family's Safari is still very good. The trip to Yala National Park is unforgettable. We saw Ceylon leopards and elephants. The number is small but it is already very good. Thank you!

    Guests who stay at our property in Yala always leave with a smile. The outdoor restaurant is pleasant for wining and dining.
    Rooms have mosquito nets, to keep the bugs away. The outdoor garden is well manicured and offers tropical fauna and flora. After a rugged day on a safari, dust and mud covered attire can easily be cleaned through the in-house laundry service.
    Yala is an adventurous, tropical treat. Yala is synonymous with leopard safari. Elephants in large herds can be seen here as well. Crocodiles, sloth bear, deer, wild boar, and buffaloes are just a handful of wildlife here. The Buddhist temples at Tissamaharama are worth visiting. The visit to Kirinda is special, with the Queen`s statue and the lighthouse. The temple at Kirinda is beautiful.

  • Such a wonderful place to stay!! A walking distance from the bus station too. Nishan and his family were very welcoming, his wife will cook you dinner from a menu they’ve prepared and we ate there every night!! They arranged our safari for us and we had an excellent driver pointing out all the animals (leopard!!!). And on our free day they were kind enough to lend us their scooter to check out the sights around town. Such a hidden gem for a great price, also very clean!! Thanks again for everything!!

    It's an Eco friendly lodge, built in a rustic style using renewable and natural material. A place for a responsible tourism and safari. Bordering the Gem River where guests can enjoy the clean water and refresh body and mind. We also organize visits to the ancient temple - Situlpowa inside the Yala.

  • Munas place is built so thoughtfully and beautifully causing minimal harm to nature. They have recycled and re-used a lot of naturally found things to build this place. We were amazed! It takes a brilliant mind to build something so amazing and yet simple, with no frills attached. Kataragama is a beautiful place with more peacocks than people. You can see peacocks walking around everywhere in this property. Muna is a great host with wonderful things to talk about and is an even better cook. His creativity is seen even with his food. They helped us arrange a safari too to the Yala National park. One tiny complain is that we would have liked it if the bathroom had hot water and maybe a little more lighting in the room. Apart from that, it was all great.

    Gajanan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The space is breathtaking, the attention to detail was amazing. Beautiful river right beside, to dip your feet in to escape the heat! We paid for lunch and dinners and they were the best meals we had on our travels! Well worth the price. The rooms were warm at night, however being from Canada we are just not used to the heat and humidity. They tried their best with ceiling fan and bedside fan to keep it cool! Large bathroom and endless space to explore in the garden area. Truly a unique place to stay and perfect stay for doing a safari in the Yala National Park!

    Kelsey2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Carla and Muna’s place was absolutely stunning, artfully designed and very grounding. We were only here 2 nights but were wishing we had stayed longer to spend time on the property. Every detail was so thoughtfully placed, from the layout of the restaurant to the bathrooms. The food was delicious and healthy and the staff super friendly. We will definitely be back again and are already recommending Gem river Eco lodge to our friends!

    Ashley2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The grounds are beautiful, right next to a river. The furniture is unique, there is something to discover everywhere in the grounds. The food was also delicious. We also liked the safari. If you like the nature is the accommodation just right, some animals get lost in the room of course. We would come again!

    Birgit2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay and relax under the heat of Kataragama between big lizards and playful monkeys . Our host Carla was really reactive, always trying to suggest good tips and helps. The staff was really kind. We booked our Safari in the Airbnb and we were really satisfied of our guide Jani, his kindness, his knowledge of the National park. We were lucky enough to see all animals possible ! As an Eco lodge, you won’t any find air conditioner in the rooms but fans. So be prepare to sleep in a warm room ! Our bathroom could have been cleaner, the room better illuminated and signalisation to find the place could be improve

    Pernet2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Exceeded my expectations! Everyone was very welcoming and helped make sure I had a good time.

    Kirsten2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Muna's place is very special and filled with thoughtful artistic touches. There is a beautiful garden and courtyard for you to discover and relax in.There are many different magical places to explore including the river. It is amazing to watch all of the birds and small animals, peacocks coming and going. Staff at Gem River are always helpful friendly and eager to attend to your needs. We had some delicious meals. This place far exceeded our expectations.
