    • Birding in Peace and Tranquility

      WATERS EDGE, TISSA WEVA, ANURADHAPURA 30th JUNE 2nd JULY 2019 I was fortunate to pay another visit to these premises one of my favourite locations. Despite the heat (the area was experiencing a severe drought and most of the smaller waterbodies had dried up), I still managed to enjoy myself immensely. Many indigenous and endemic trees have been thoughtfully planted in the extensive garden. The trees and plants were watered every other day in an effort to conserve water. Water in small pots was changed daily and the birds had a welcome drink and dip in these. It is such a delight to watch birds bathe.....how they enjoy splashing about in the water! Despite the dry weather I had 54 species of birds on my list. Mammals seen were a young Brown Mongoose too young to be on his own, and a charming sight as he ran around the dry grass, while a Black-naped Hare hopped in the garden. At night, while seated on the verandah looking across the waters of the Tissa Weva, the tranquility I experienced was almost palpable. The food, as usual, was excellent. Cook Mangala surpassed himself with tasty curries and a chicken dish one night which was mouth-watering. High standards of cleanliness and comfort are maintained. Snowy white linen and air conditioned rooms made us comfortable. The staff were attentive and at hand to attend to our needs. It was sad when my holiday came to an end as this is one location that I never tire of visiting. Its proximity to tanks and waterways makes it ideal for keen birders while those on cultural excursions will also find its location ideal. Tara Wikramanayake

      Our stay at Waters edge was simply wonderful. The home and the grounds are beautiful, very tastefully decorate and so private, it feels like you are in an exclusive private villa. The staff were so kind and attentive, and the food simply delicious. We were spoiled!

      WATERS EDGE, TISSA WEVA, ANURADHAPURA 7TH - 10TH DECEMBER 2018 I have visited this magical location many times and never fail to find something new and delightful during each visit. The peace and serenity I experience while sitting on the verandah at night looking at the three Dagobas of Mirisawetiya, Ruwanwelisaya and Jetawanaramaya illuminated across the tranquil waters of the Tissa Weva, totally rejuvenate me. The garden is spacious and as an enthusiastic birder, I have found many interesting species of birds within the premises, along the shores of the Tissa Weva and even in the home gardens of the neighbours. The rooms are comfortable and clean with snowy white linen. The food is sumptuous- authentic local fare with some Western dishes also available. The cook Mangala is a treasure. The staff are attentive and eager to please. This is an ideal place for a holiday. It can also serve as a base for visiting the Sacred City, the numerous Tanks or Wevas and irrigation canals built by our ancestors and other places of interest in the North Central Province. I am always reluctant to leave at the end of my stay and keep wishing for a few more days at this enchanting property.

    • Harmonious Stay

      Reviewed 22 March 2018

      With so many large hotel constructions coming up in Anuradhapura, Waters Edge clearly stands out with its homely style. This little bungalow over looks the Tissawewa with some stunning views of three dagobas - Mirisawetiya, Ruwanweli Maha Seya & Abayagiriya. For those who hate large hotels and want a simple and relaxing stay - go for it! If you are a birder, grab yourself a cup of coffee and sit back on the verandah, the garden itself is the home for some amazing birds!

    • Amazing in every way

      We had an amazing time at Waters Edge. It was truly home away from home. The staff went above and beyond to take great care of us. The food was delicious every single time and the hospitality....so gracious! The view is spectacular and the environment itself is just what you need if you're looking for a peaceful place. I'd go back there in a heart beat!
