6/10 Good

The property is amazing - grand and beautiful. The architecture is very good and so is the view. You can spend a lot of time around the property and enjoy it. Staff is not very helpful - had to ask for a pool towel 3 times still did not get it. So, that's something they can improve upon. They do not have a buffet breakfast, so the staff provides a fixed menu. Overall, its nice and beautiful but staff can be more helpful and they can pay little more attention to attending to the guest.

Very good service! Ufortunately ended up getting quarantined and had to use the hotel for my quarantine... They took good care of us and called us several times a day to make sure we had food and water or needed anything. Impressive!

Great stay and great facilities
We had a great stay at EKHO Safari Tissa. We were upgraded to a suite with lakeview upon arrival. The facilities were in great condition, and the swimming pool (quite) clean. Dinner and breakfast bouffet with lots to choose from. The only negative is that the safe did not work.

Great hotel on the lake in Tissamaharama
Hotel is in a great location right on the lake. Rooms are nice and clean. Recommend staying in the lake view room. From bed you have a view of the lake. Langur monkeys playing on property. Theres an island just off the hotel in the lake which is teaming with wildlife. Room service was prompt and delicious. Good pool. Comfortable bed and pillows. Amazing water pressure from rain shower. Great loungers in front of pool to watch the sunset over the lake. Down side Checkin process seemed longer than it should have. No balcony in room Bathroom needs some update Walkways are loud becuse of the A/C units are attached on the side of them
