Naserah, Sri Lanka - September 2020

Close friends and I spent 3 days at this incredible resort. It’s a beautifully designed eco friendly place with delightful touches that evoke a sense of the romance and charm that safaris had in a bygone era (with all the modern comforts of course). We had wonderful attentive service, delicious food in the most amazing setting (dinner on the sand dunes on a moonlit night was magical)... The spa n massages were superb and professional as were the game drives with thoughtfully prepared snack boxes...

The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much for them. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. We had highly experienced trackers...
