Tree days at this hotel it´s splendid experience to stay in the middle off the bush, nature near Sigiriya. Staff very friendly and very good dishes, the swimming pool is nice surprise, bungalows clean and ratio price and amenities very good. I recommende this hotel to group of friends, couple or family also.

We went there with my girlfriend last year and we were amazed by the location of this hotel. Lost in the middle of the jungle after a looooooooong road (mind your butt, there are holes everywhere and the car can't avoid them) if you like to be isolated from other people, this is the place to go. Staff is very... More

This place is a long way from the town centre and a mile or 2 up a dirt track off the main road. You cannot get anywhere without transport but the owner is helpful with arranging excursions and transport. A very quiet restful place in the country, with a large garden and a swimming pool. It has an attractive open... More

This is somewhat in the middle of nowhere but worth the effort for a night in the countryside where you are literally surrounded by fields and rugged landscapes, birds and wildlife.. Our chalet room was a little tired but was clean and comfortable. The food was very good, particularly the vegetarian curry which was yummy! We didn't use the pool... More

You need to drive a little trough the fields before getting there. It is surrounded by the forest, the place is lovely. The comfort is correct and the employees are very kind. They give good service. They walk with us to show a pond that was nearby. Food is good and swimming pool is clean.

I stayed at this resort during the off-season and loved it. The owner and his nephew could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. The resort is settled on seven acres of prime bird watching wilderness through which the owner offers lovely, guided dawn walks to see and listen to the many birds as they greet the day. Although the... More

Extremely friendly if perhaps 10Euros overpriced for a double room.The pool and restaurant were clean, the rooms less so. But this is a quaint and quiet place to stay way from the dust and bedlam of Dambulla. The perfect place to come back to after climbing Sigirya. They will cook to order for kids, chili free too.

Difficult to access specially after an heavy rain... We appreciate the nice swimming pool after one day visit to Pollonaruwa and Sigiriya. The place need some renovations and have the potential to become a Nature Resort because of this location! Food was ok, but may be more choice would appreciate.

We were a bit apprehensive about this place after reading the reviews (it was prebooked by our travel agent), but we were very pleasantly surprised. After a bumpy ride down a gravel path we arrived at the lovely resort among huge boulders and with an inviting pool right outside our 1/2 bungalow. We were the only residents for the two... More

This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Friends and I booked the hotel through a 3rd party and arrived at the hotel in the early evening. The road into the Hotel requires a competent 4x4 vehicle to navigate through what is essentially a dirt track. Our first impressions were not good at all. The reception... More
