Surrounded by vast paddy fields and a plethora of natural beauty, the Kithala Resort is a true piece of haven as one explores the magnificence of Southern Sri Lanka. Inspired by the scores of exotic birds one encounters at the hotel and the area is home to, the resort was named Kithala or the Purple Coot.

Kithala Resort is located in Tissamaharama and it is about 2km away from the town. Easy access to Yala National park. Staff was very friendly and polite by all means. We went there on a special Buddhist Holiday called “Vesak” and they had organized a nice event in the evening to celebrate the occasion. The buffet was not filled with many dishes but still the food was nice. All in all I would recommend this hotel for anyone
