Wow!! Beautiful setting, beautiful gardens, spacious and private rooms, the staff are friendly and be prepared to "talk" cricket.. Being South African, led to many discussions about the game. A very good location to for day trips to Sigiriya and Polonoruwa.

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and professional, great customer service. The best pool imaginable and incredible grounds were they homegrown all the produce served in the delicious restaurant. Attention to detail is faultless - mum and I were sad to leave!!!

The hotel design is unusual with the pool reaching right into the lobby! The rooms are huge and extremely comfortable. The staff friendly and welcoming. The buffet is not as good as some I have experienced in Sri Lanka and as usual its much better to stick to the Sri Lankan food. Good location for visiting Dambulla.

This place is simply paradise. The only downside is leaving - oh, and not being taken for a drive in the Jalopy! There's a cricket green, bright blue iridescent kingfishers, monkeys, peacocks, a river, amazing staff and a good bar. The food wasn't great but who needs to eat in paradise - Sri Lanka at her very very best. The... More

Our room was on the 4th floor at the jungle end of the hotel. We had monkeys on our balcony (although warned to not feed them) kept the doors closed when they were about. The room was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. We had a fairly hectic schedule and were quite tired when we returned to the hotel... More

After a hectic drive and Sigiriya rock climb, we couldn't ask for more. Comforting swimming pool (next to bar), massage for those who wished to indulge, lovely rooms (our rooms were upgraded to Delux) with Jaccuzi and all this in midst of their own plantations. Thilanka resorts serve you fruits and vegetables from own garden. Food is delicious whether you... More

What a great welcome and overall stay we experienced at the Thilanka Resort and Spa. From the moment we were collected by the rickshaw to our check out 7 days later, we were blown away by the service, the food, the rooms and the general ambience at this holiday retreat. The property is, in effect, a working farm where a... More

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel, it was very nice. We had view to a lake, and the room was clean and sweet, not so new but good. The food wasn't so good, very spicy. There is a nice pool. The staff were friendly and very nice. We recommend this hotel for its price and what you get in... More

Thilanka Resort and Spa is a beautiful property, nestled amidst lovely green surroundings, where the resort grows their very own fruit and vegetables. The room was spacious and very comfortable and even had a balcony, from which you could enjoy the green views and birds chirping. The bathroom was a wonderful surprise...it came with a jacuzzi bathtub as an added... More
