Tamarind Tree Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Yatiyana
Reviewed 11 January 2015

Stayed for one night after arriving from Colombo airport which is about 60 mins away. It is quite remote but secure and set in nice ground. Spacious accommodation reasonable buffet style food. The former president of Sri Lanka was there for a meeting during his election campaign

Room Tip: Get a room close to reception as grounds not well lit

We enjoyed our stay at the Tamarind Tree , the service was great, The location serene. The The food was great too. The accommodation was comfortable and cosy. The Hotel eludes an relaxed atmosphere amidst a coconut plantation. The hotel is located just an 60 min drive from Colombo. Unfortunately the property is not marketed to its true potential.
The service rendered by Senaka & Tuan need special mention The F & B guys along with the chefs.

Room Tip: The rooms close to the pool. especially the chalet type rooms are ideal for a family

we stayed here for 1 night after arriving in Sri Lanka. Close to airport and set in it's own grounds, the rooms were very spacious but a little tired. Nice swimming pool and friendly staff. Buffet meals, dinner and breakfast were ok, but nothing spectacular. OK hotel for one night, but well away from anything worth visiting

This hotel is very close to the airport in Columbo and makes the perfect place to rest after a 12 hour flight from the UK. At the end of your holiday it is also perfectly sighted to minimise all the stress in flying home. As a hotel it reaches back in time to when the British forces were based in Sri Lanka and my guess would be that this was an officers club or leave centre. Bungalows and rooms spread out around a lovely swimming pool and in the shade of some beautiful trees. The rooms are large and comfortable; equipped with television and coffee/tea making facilities. WiFi is available free in the bar/lounge area and can be purchased when needed in the rooms. Food was good and the staff friendly and efficient. We liked this hotel and the loss of one star is only because the hotel needs a bit of a face lift and it looks a little shabby in places. Overall a very nice place to stay.

Our flight from maldives was delayed hence we missed the connecting flight to India. Srilankan airlines by which we arrived at Colombo made arrangements for a separate flight to India. For transit time they were sweet to book us Tamarind Tree Hotel . We reached there at 7.30 and left the hotel at 11. We had breakfast. The spread was less than ordinary. No Dosa, Idli etc. Service was poor maybe for transit passengers. The reception is very nice specially the huge wooden curtains. The rooms are very nice with a small lawn. Nice stay
