Sundaras Resort meant 4 days of total bliss. It's only a few minutes from the beautiful cave tempels (do it late afternoon for sundown) and not that far from all the sites in Sigiriya. So a perfect base to see the area. But the hotel is also a heavenly spot for some relaxing around the fabulous pool (or chilling in... More

Pool is nice. Rooms are ok. I wouldn't recommend it and I wouldn't go back, but it is ok if you have no other options. We booked a twin room, but we got a double room and it seemed like a lot of trouble to just get what we payed for. Breakfast is everyday exactly the same, nothing special compared... More

We stayed two night and it was very good stay. The hotel has a swimming pool where you can swim a bit. Staff is very friendly. Highly recommended!! Great value for the money. Its very close to the Dambulla Temple. Its quite silent during the night. AC works great

Save yourself a day, get a driver and do it as a day trip... The hotel was cheap and cheerful, staff were friendly but the pool looks like a death trap with exposed wiring etc... To top it all off there was an unfortunate 'misunderstanding' with how the hotel organised the driver for our return trip to Kandy. The old... More

Pros - quick check in - cute rooms (although very basic) - very close to Golden & Cave Temples - pool Cons - no mozzie nets on the beds or screens with plenty of gaps in the walls and ceiling to let them in. There were some huge ones in the bathroom. - pool isn't finished and looks really hazardous... More

We stayed there one night. We booked standard rooms but was up-graded free of charge as there were free delux-rooms. Rooms where nice and clean with view over the new swimmingpool (still under construction). Buffet night and morning was fine. The manager was very helpfull and had good advices for the onward travel.

Ours was a direct booking after receiving confirmation of availability from the manager. Staff were welcoming, although “Rocky” (the resort’s pet) seemed a bit tired. We stayed four nights at Sundaras, making this the base for our daily ventures to Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura and Sigiriya, not to mention the Cave Temple which was within a walking distance to the resort. I... More

Bathroom was also very clean.The food in the restaurant is delicious as well. Sundaras Resort is a a great base to visit the Cultural Triangle and is also only about a 5 minute... More

We arrived late and tired. We had a warm friendly welcome with a juice and cold hand towel. The owner explained as he was still doing our room that they where over booked. When we where shown our room we did not complain as we thought that we may have to move on. The room was dank, airless and not... More
