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

We stayed in here because we were on a roundtrip and had plans to go to the Lions Rock the next morning. This hotel had a great location nearby. Nice hotel with a great service. They had free wifi, but only in the reseption area and the restaurant. The food was also good. The had a buffet.

Comfortable clean villas in beautiful setting. Room was a good size for triple share of three adults. Good sized bathroom with good amenities, although shower pressure not great, bath also available. wifi not available in room, but can be used around pool area or in restaurant. Staff were very helpful and good selection at buffet breakfast. Would defiinitely recommend.

The hotel is comprised of little bungalows for each room. Rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable and staff really friendly and helpful. Negative points wifi only in pool and bar areas. The food was good with a wide range of choice. The hotel is isolated if you don't have a driver, which for us was not a problem. I... More

This hotel complex is located down a dirt road away from the local settlement. There is a separate reception building, an open ended bar/ restaurant and Ayurveda massage. The rooms are individual square blocks along tree- lined paths. There is a wonderful view of Lion Rock from here which is particularly good early evening as the light catches it. Rooms... More
