Summary of Grand Udawalawe Safari Resort

This lovely hotel opened 5 years ago and is ideally located within a 15 minutes drive from the Udawalawe National Park. The staff are extremely friendly and will make you feel really welcome from the minute you arrive at the hotel. I was personally impressed and touched by all their warm gestures and this definitely made my stay even more special.

I stayed in the luxury super grand suite which had a large room with a very comfortable bed, a living area, a lovely bathroom with a rainfall shower and rooftop terrace with beautiful views over the pool and the surrounding landscape. I also enjoyed breakfast as you had the option between a continental breakfast or a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was nice to try. Plus, they have lots of local fresh fruits which a chef will prepare for you on the spot. 

If you're planning to go on a jeep safari in the Udawalawe National Park whilst in Sri Lanka, then I highly recommend staying a night or two at the Grand Udawalawe Safari Resort.
