I have just spent a few fabulous days at "TOC" and can highly recommend it. The grounds are a peaceful respite from the hustle bustle noise and activity that is Sri Lankan life. The pristine cabins (only 9), nestled within beautiful surrounds and shady trees, are perfectly designed for their environment, with decks onto the surrounding grounds and if you desire, a couple of tree top decks to have evening drinks and listen to the birds. A minor item which could be considered is that some small hole have appeared in the mosquito nets, (but this doesn't change my rating).

The staff could not be friendlier and more helpful; the 2 guys serving in the kitchen were fabulous. The food is great - but for my personal taste, could have had been more spicy -closer to the heat I was expecting from Sri Lankan curries.

As a wildlife lover, it was brilliant to meet the entertaining Dhilip de Alwis, the resident naturalist, photographer and birdwatcher. Make sure you organise an evening walk with him alongside the reservoir. He helped make this a star rating for me.

In addition, Habarana is a convenient location to the cultural triangle and to the National Parks.

Stayed 3 nights in the big house on stilts just past the restaurant (rooms 1 & 2). Worked out really well with the 3 children in one room and my wife and I in the other. Meant some privacy from each other but with adjoining doors plus a single exterior out to the fantastic covered outdoor sitting/eating area - perfect family accommodation!!

Had a lovely time there with a nice mix of local tours (Sigirya Rock, Dambulla Caves and Elephant safari) and onsite strolling (do the nature walk with the interesting/entertaining Dhilip, plus visit the vegetable/fruit garden and stop for fresh ginger tea!!).

I'd recommend just to eat onsite - lovely food (with fruit and veg from their own garden), and seemed very reasonably priced (family of 5 all well fed for 4000-6000 lkr [20-30 GBP] ).

Biggest mention though must go towards the staff who were all so welcoming and kind.

Definitely stay here if you want to just chill, surrounded by beautiful wildlife.

Ps. If you have your own driver, as we did (brilliant concept!), they also provide lodgings for them which is a nice bonus.

This is a great place to stay in Habarana either for solo traveler, couple, family or friends. I love the concept of the property. My family and I love nature and it is nice to have a break from city life especially for the kid. It's a nice getaway from the typical hotels in a building. Your room is in an individual cottages. It's nice to have only a few people in the property. It keeps the serenity of the place. I love the fact that there's no television in the room. You will definitely see bugs around, you may use insect repellent you have or the one they provide in the room (Citronella oil) . We even woke up one morning and see monkeys sitting in our table outside the room. The property is secured so you will feel safe even if you walk around at night. It is away from the main road (you have to cross a short hanging bridge to reach the entrance) so it is quiet. We arrived late night and we were greeted by the lovely staff with cold towels and juice. Our chalet is beautiful. Perfect for a family of 3. Airconditioning was working fine bathroom is simple. The food at the restaurant is very good however, my family was looking for more Sri Lankan dishes. Their menu is mostly Western but we would loved if there are more Sri Lankan dishes to offer because we can't get enough of delicious local dishes! If I may suggest that they improve the desserts on the menu. they're ok but not amazing. We were able to try the pool as well. The water is cold. Nice dip after a sweaty day climbing the Lion Rock. The also good thing is that they have their own jeep with awesome driver/guide for the Safari and they charge fairly. No sweat with booking. We arrived there without a booked tour because we wanted to do things ourselves. We didn't arrange for a tuktuk going to the Sigiriya Lion Rock. The kitchen staffs were the best. One of them has his own tuktuk so he took us himself to the Rock and patiently waited for us to finish and he even brought us to an amazing restaurant for lunch. They even helped us contact the local driver who will pick us up for we are having trouble contacting the taxi company. They even gave us a souvenir of our family photo for free! They also have the organic garden where they plant their fruits and vegetables. The garden caretaker even gave us a small tour and picked some fruits for us to taste! Overall we had an amazing stay. Good accommodation, good location, more so amazingly helpful & friendly staffs. We recommend this place to our friends and my family will definitely go back here!
