Far Cry was hands down the best place we stayed at while in Sri Lanka. The property is true to the photos, and affords a very comfortable but authentic forest experience

The house was great, the pool was a wonderful oasis from the heat and the local staff were attentive and friendly. The meals that were prepared for us were basic but tasty and they happily dealt with our wide ranging dietary requirements.
