Tranquil, beautiful, intimate and luxurious
My wife and I had a most wonderful stay at The Oliphant. It's one of the rare hotels which live up to the beautiful photos you see on the official website. Location: It's not very accessible so you need to hire a driver or rent a car. But the inaccessibility is part of the charm. The Oliphant is in a restored colonial bungalow that's over a 150 years old, and in the middle of the Oliphant tea estate. Accommodation: Despite the age, the hotel was recently refurbished and very well maintained. It has all the creature comforts and amenities you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel. Service: The service is simply superb. The staff are highly attentive and personable, and make the greatest effort to ensure that your stay is comfortable. We particularly enjoyed Keshavan's warmth and his sharing of life in Sri Lanka. Keshavan's colleagues (apologies as we didn't get all their names) were also wonderful and models of excellent service. Dining: We went for the half board option and absolutely enjoyed the food. Value: The Oliphant is not cheap. But it's great value for money compared to similarly luxurious accommodation in Sri Lanka. Overall: A splendid stay.

wonderful place to spend relation time with a love
it was a wonderful stay for 3 days. just beauiful remote garden where you can spend good time alone with someone you love. nothing else to do. you might need a car to be able to reach to nearby city where you can get food and wash your clothes. i would recommend to rent a car (prefebly with a driver) if you want to go to different cities in sri lanka. they have a kitchen to provide food. but prices was at least triple of any good resturant. also no washing machine which is supposed to be there in such remote area. anyway, the place is not to miss if you are visiting sri lanka.
