We stayed 3 nights in the Thilanka and everything went very well. The mango forest is magnificent and the hotel is close to Dambulla's main attraction. The service and the food buffet were really good! The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms come with a shower and a bath! The only negative point we saw concerns the rooms : they... More

Modest sized hotel which we appreciate in a lovely setting amongst a mango orchard. Pity it was not the fruiting season during our stay!! Rooms might be considered functional but they claim to be eco friendly; food and drink very good. In fact an excellent barman in Mahis. My wife had a massage but she rated it as hardly average.

We stayed at the hotel for our wedding in 2010. The staff could not have done more for us. The location was perfect and the hotel room was delux, particularly for the price. They had even filled the bath with fresh flowers for our arrival. Highly recommended for accomodation, food, service and welcome.

The food and drinks at this hotel was the best of the ones we experienced in the cultural triangle. However wifi is only available in the lobby and barely worked. Also the lobby, bar and restaurant are open air and attract tons of mosquitos.

You start relaxing as soon as you drive up amongst a field of mango trees. we stayed here for one night during a time when there were heavy rains and constant showers. The rooms were modern and clean, with a nice spacious balcony. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The pool is one of the main features at this... More

Have visited twice with colleagues for dinner. To begin with, the resort has easy access from Dambulla - Kandy main road and has ample parking facilities. The area from entrance point to the resort is large and very spaciaous with lots of shady trees. The decor at entry lobby is impressive with friendly staff to welcome the guests. You could... More

Serene and nice resort. Good place for people looking for very quite time. Rooms can be free of lizards but nothing serious, the issue was taken care immediately. It is too quite for family with kids. It would be great place for couples and honeymooners.

The garden area and location was good and spacious. However, the rooms were somewhat lacking in comfort. The fan was noisy and the AC was a little run down. However there was a nice garden with fruit and vegetable trees. And it was very green.

One night stopover at Thilanka resort in Dambulla is pleasant. Nothing to brag about, food was good and the garden was excellent, with lot of mango trees planted. Rooms were bit rundown needs refurbishment. Fittings like fans and A/C noicy. Central location and environment. Cower to Dambulla Rock about ten minute drive.
