We arrived at this hotel - after a bumpy drive up a 3 mile track ! Our first impression was good with views of the pool and beautiful scenery. We were driven by golf buggy about half a mile to what seemed like the edge of the resort and given keys to 2 of the worst rooms we had stayed... More

Don't go there. Bugs everywhere. In your food, they fall from the ceiling on your head. If you go to the a la carte restaurant you will see two guys swiping the floor literally 24/7/60/60 but it's pointless. We had ants in the shower, bath and generally the bathroom. We had a mouse in our room and also around twenty... More

The hotel failed to deliver the b’day which I had ordered during reservation. It was my wife’s b’day & I had requested a cake as to surprise her but to my utter disappointment the hotel had totally forgotten the request. Upon checking out, when I inquired from the reception as to why this had happened the Duty Manager quoted that... More

Since its situated in a very wide land area, you can walk in and around the hotel land. We certainly enjoyed the walk in... More

A la carte restaurant looks also nice but when you sit the bugs are falling on our heads. The whole floor was covered by bugs. The waiters... More

Very nice quite hotel adjoining the kandalama lake. very friendly staff and helpful. We had 2 kids at age of 2 and 4, very family friendly hotel. The hotel is about 10 kilometers from Dambulla cave temple. Sigiriya rock fortress is also not very far from the hotel.
