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

The entrance to this small and tranquil hotel is stunning. Lovely gardens and a long drive to the foyer where a beautiful pool surrounded by rice padis. The rooms are comfortable and the staff friendly and welcoming. The rooms are well placed throughout the hotel and the spa was an experience. We loved returning to this quite and peaceful hotel...

Big large rooms, excellent condition. Lots of greens around have to be careful of mossies but kids enjoyed satellite tv. No internet in room, only in lobby. You get chariot from car park to reception . 100's of mango trees! There's a green luscious paddy field next to it! A true Hidden spot!

Friendly floor manager. Great pool and location. The rooms are clean and big. Everything looks beautiful and the bar is nice too. It's a shame there was no wifi in rooms but just in public places. Breakfast is great (you can request omelettes which are nice) and the optional dinner is pretty good too if you like Sri Lankan food.

this resort is my favorite out of 3 hotels stayed during my ancient capitals trip in Sri Lanka. This hotel is based on European style design with spacial rooms. Smart and valuable choice for anyone who wants to visit Matele district (Sigiriya).
