Got sick after staying here. It was a little dated I was not impressed for the price. The pool is nice. The service was fine. However it is better to look further up the road there are much better options near Sigiriya.

We'd read the reviews and asked to stay in this hotel for 3 nights during our tour. It started magically, transported through the lit up mango trees by tricycle and delivered to the lobby to receive our cool towel and welcome drink. The pool looked stunning, but it did strike me that it was placed there for stylistic, rather than... More

We were driven to the hotel reception in rickshaw. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom was very spacious. I would definitely visit this hotel again. There were loads of vegetable plantations on the way to the rooms. The pool over looks paddy fields.

We stayed overnight at this utterly charming hotel, made up of "villas" decorating the mango plantation. The whole effect was as in a Safari Park but without the wild life! Lots of chipmunks though! Superb pool of 50m long, flanked by terraces and palm leaf umbrellas. Spa and massage parlour also! All vegetable and fruit produce is grown in the... More

Exceptional in all respects. We had set our expectations to match the price and star rating but were incredibly surprised at the standard of this hotel. Rooms are spacious and exceptionally well appointed. Staff are wonderful; polite, helpful and engaging. This hotel deserves a higher star rating. The standards throughout the hotel (pool, reception, lobby and food) are all well... More

We arrived at Thilanka Resort and Spa in the late evening and were met by bicycle rickshaws that would take us and our luggage to the hotel. It was a magical introduction to the property as we were driven through a mango forest draped in fairy lights. Upon arrival at the hotel itself were were presented with a cool drink... More

The tricycle ride into the awesome pool & lobby area really impressed us. It felt like being in paradise after you enter from the car park area. The whole hotel area consists of mango trees, rice paddy and other fruiting plants. There are 4 big rooms in each building that line the boulevard parallel to the paddy field. The room... More
