    Best room by far in Sri Lanka”

    I stayed in Ekho , Sigiriya, was disappointed, to my surprise the Ekho Tissa was such a beautiful property and what made it special was the courteous nature of the staff. They obliged to all our tantrums and kept the smile on their face. Special mention to Mr. Nirosh, who helped us throught out our stay. Rooms facing the lake gives the best view... Food was also great be it Al carte or buffet. The breakfast range was also good. Rooms very nice and fixtures were nice. Generally water is seen as a source of revenue, the team here were very helpful and provided with water whenever we requested. The entire 2 days were so memorable and it made one of our best stay in Sri Lanka. I again say infra and facility aids the process, but hospitality nails it. Tissa lake is delight for walkers and we did twice in as many days, just next to the property. It's 1.5km from Tissa town and around 20 km from yalla and bundella park. Must stay if you staying in Tissa!!!

    Excellent, the suite room with view of pool and river was excellent.”

    Excellent hotel, room was clean, breakfast and dinner was good with variety of food. You can go for walk Tissa Lake and have a boat ride. The swimming pool is good but there should be a board saying people to have shower before going in the pool. The bathroom in the room should have a larger soap and shampoo holder. We don't recommend anyone to go and see the Tele cinema which is about 20 minutes away, it is just a waste of money, you will see only collapsing building where they make movies before. Overall the hotel was excellent, we will visit again next time.

    Can not fault this place! ”

    Some of the best accomodation we have stayed in in Sri Lanka, especially for the price!! Modern decor, room was very big and clean with a hot shower with good water pressure. The buffet dinner was fantastic!! Staff were lovely and very accommodating, we arrived at 10pm and they were still able to organise a safari trip for 5am the next day. Thank you for a wonderful stay, would 100% recommend for anyone wanting to close to Yala national park.

    Excellent Stay for Family with young Kids ”

    We stayed in this hotel for one night, before taking morning Safari at Yala (5am). Staff is super friendly, food is great (buffet or a la carte) and they pack breakfast when you need to leave early for Safari. Rooms are clean, super good service and very nice view of the lake. Definitively I recommend this place. We traveled with 3 kids (9, 6 and 2 yrs old). Hotel facilities work very well for families.

    It is the most famous property in that region. Everyone from our driver till the tour guide praised about this hotel. The rooms were huge and bathrooms were very clean. The lake front pool and the pier make this property worth visiting. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. Food buffet was good also reasonably priced.
