Lying just south of Udawalawe National Park, on the edge of Chandrika Reservoir, the Centauria Lake Resort is a simple yet comfortable hotel.

The main wing has 42 rooms, and four lakeside cottages each contain two rooms, most of which are air conditioned, with en suite showers and lake-facing balconies. There’s also a swimming pool, café-bar and Ayurvedic centre. The hotel operates excursions into the park in 4-wheel drive vehicles with naturalist guides to see the 250-strong elephant population, plus red-faced malkoha and other birds.
