Its a gem inside the wilderness. Interesting way the hotel rooms are laid out like cottages. Staff were friendly and the stay was great. A special mention must go for the bathroom, half of which is open to natural light- a very interesting feature.

This is a good location for the cultural triangle. The "chalet rooms" are spacious and charming. It would be good if there was a safe and a rack to dry clothes/towels. The pool area is lovely and the buffet and a la carte food was good and reasonably priced. It's nice and quiet. Service is good. I would recommend this... More

I feel a little sorry for the people commenting that it was the best hotel in their stay – they don’t know how much they missed in terms of hospitality and quality at other places. We spoiled ourselves to smaller boutique hotels and I definitely don't regret the time I spent hand-picking these on the internet!!! We opted for the... More

The hotel is in a good location with views of the rock from the pool. Unfortunately, as we were so busy sight seeing, we only really got to eat breakfast, late evening meal and sleep here - although there are few facilities other than the pool. It lacks a bar area to unwind before or after your evening meal. Our... More

Hotel is ideal for visiting sigiriya rock and dambulla caves. Just get a tuk tuk from the lobby. Nice pool with view of the rock. Gardens are lovely and well maintained. Cabins/chalets are private, have AC and a tv and bathrooms are clean and roomy. Buffet breakfast and dinner were better than any other hotels we stayed in during our... More

This is a resort type hotel with bungalow, two floor each housing total four units. We stayed at the ground floor just next to the pool, where you can see the lion rock at a distance. Room is average, though it is big, but just simply beds, desk, chair, wardrobe, with a huge but empty area in the living room.... More

I spent 2 nights with my family of 6 - The best value for money and the food was excellent. The staff were courteous, friendly and always willing to help. I spent 10 days traveling the country and was very happy with this hotel. In addition, Roshni at the head office was extremely helpful in getting us the rooms. Thank... More

Our family loved it here. We stayed for two nights and it was perfect for what we wanted. It was secluded and not near anything, but we were only there for late afternoons/early evenings and then the main evening before heading off in the morning, so it wasn't a problem for us. I believe that there are some better quality... More

We stayed here for two nights recently. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. It's far from anything walking distance, so you need to have your driver take you to eat or the store. The wifi is only available in common areas and is really weak. The rooms are very quiet and most are separated from each other.... More
