    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I paid almost $800 for a single night at their King nest with a package inclusive of all meals and two safari game drives. Most of the reviews are misleading. It is about 45 mins to actually get to Yalla park gate. While it was OK, it was certainly not worth the amount we paid and is grossly overpriced. The hotel is probably a 2 star or 2.5 stars. There are no real amenities. Our lunch was tuna sandwiches only, and I am not exaggerating. Breakfast was just as disappointing. The safari drive was ok but the driver seemed rushed and was not as aggressive as other drivers in helping us get closer to the animals. For what we paid, they can do better. A lot better. It should not be priced at more than $150-200/ night for what you get.

    Luxury price tag for a hotel though comfortable not what would be considered luxury based on experience for similar packages in Africa. No tea and coffee making facilities, no bedside lights just a single bare bulb in the bedroom, bathroom light on a timer which went off whilst showering, etc. The staff and Roy in particular, went out of their way to try and make up for the disappointment in the facilities. There was no mention in the literature that the nearest part of the park was closed and it was over an hour each way to get to where was open. Roy accommodated this by offering an all day game drive for which we were very grateful.

    A very special experience

    They made us feel so special during our 2-day stay. The food was fantastic with some of the best curry we’ve tasted in Sri Lanka. Get ready for an early start with 6am through the safari gates. We were very lucky to see a sloth bear but unlucky not to see a leopard. Animals aren’t to order! There is also an afternoon tour as an option. Thanks to Madhu and the rest of the team.

    Great stay

    We had a great stay at Leopard Nest. The team looked after us really well, and the treehouse was really quirky and different - you can even see the indian ocean from the balcony. Quite cosy, but enough space for two and the air con worked well (if a little noisy). It was great to have a different experience from the usual hotels we stayed in during our trip. We were the only guests for the one night we stayed which made it even more of a unique experience. I was worried it may feel a little intense, but we were really well looked after and it didn't feel at all like the staff were looking over us all of the time - all of the team were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. We were all inclusive, which included two game drives. Drives were well organised and whilst the leopards didn't come out for us, the team tried really hard and we still saw plenty of wildlife and birds. Food and drink was plentiful and good quality. We were greeted from our afternoon safari with a large, ice cold G&T and a cold towel. Perfect!
