Totally a private place. We as a family enjoyed the stay without any disturbance and with a good quality food. We are happy that we selected this place for our vacation

The village around this house is amazing. It's really closed to the wildlife park. The host was really helpful and gave us really good tips for our travels. The caretaker and his wife took really good care of us too.

The environment is good and room is clean, comfortable, but the breakfast is too expensive. Room is 28 USD and breakfast is 14 USD.

Hello David Re your comment on Breakfast charge of Rs. 2100/- ( US $ 14/-). Though there is provision to order meals from the Bungalow, you had opted to purchase provisions from town with the help of your Driver and the Bungalow Keeper. The purchases had amounted to Rs. 2100/- NOT ONLY FOR BREAKFAST BUT FOR DINNER TOO. These purchases provided you with Dinner , Tea & Breakfast for the two of you + your Driver ( adding up to 6 meals + Tea). Therefore the cost for meals per head per day works out to only US $ 2.34 Re difficulty to locate the place. If the Driver followed directions given, it would not have been difficult.Clear land marks are given in the directions to the Bungalow. Perhaps arriving after dark would not have been helpful to the the Driver. Regards, Upaka

Upie's Folly is a beautiful place; everything about it is awesome. The rooms are very spacious with great ventilation and natural light. The food was perfect, especially the fish from the lake. Mr Kumara ensured that we had great time and helped us with the travelling around. I would definitely return to the place. Thank you, Mr Upaka. Cheers!

Upaka was a great host and they took good care of us. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were pretty good. The stand out for me was the food this was the best Sri Lankan meal I had during my stay. I couldn't get enough of it. Upaka and his caretaker ensured that we were helped with our travel plans and necessary arrangements were taken care of. Thank you for the help during our stay

Absolutely stunning and spotlessly clean residence, room had a beautiful overlooking the well kept gardens. Kumar and his wife were so sweet and went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience. The food was great and they even sent us on our way with some extra food for the trip to colombo. Highly recommend a stay here!
