Having recently been taken over by Theme Resorts, the Kithala Resort in Tissamaharama includes a modern hotel which was formerly known as Hotel Priyankara and now offers a very good standard of accommodation at reasonable rates. All the rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated and have balconies that have amazing views over the vast paddyfields directly behind the hotel.
Among the best resorts in Southern Sri Lanka
Being situated in Tissamaharama (between Kataragama and Yala), the resort is the perfect base for exploring many cultural sites and wildlife attractions to the south of Sri Lanka. The resort is minutes away from the popular landmarks of Bundala, Debarawewa and Kirinda. The historic Tissamaharama temple is also on the doorstep of the resort.
The resort itself is surrounded by picturesque paddy fields and is the perfect place to rewind after a day of discovery.
