Very convenient for visiting the Lions Rock. There is a jungle around, you can hear and feel the nearby wilderness. Service is excellent, assortment and quality of food is very good. Nice swimming pool.

i stayed here as a solo traveller and it was very poor value, for the same price i was able to stay at the Queens hotel Kandy. Nice setting in the jungle but very basic room and no soap provided in bathroom. Breakfast disappointing, told I would need to pay extra for bacon with the eggs!

This was my third visit to Sri Lanka and second to Kassapa Lions Rock. The resort is comparatively new. The chalets are very big well designed. The food variety is great. I was leading a group of six senior citizens. And Kassapa was our first halt. After the tiring journey from Colombo to Sigiriya, the only thing they needed was... More

We stayed one night at this hotel during our two week visit yo Sri Lanka. The staff were excellent, our room was an oasis in the heat, and the food was magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed the chance to relax here and wish we had stayed longer.

Kassapa was a bit more upmarket compared to most of the other places we stayed at in Sri Lanka however it was worth it. It felt good to relax at the pool and enjoy some good drinks after our trips to Sigiriya, Dambulla, Kadulle and Polonnaruwa. The staff and especially Dilan were wonderful and taught us some useful Sinhalese phrases.... More

The cabins were excellent - I love the bathroom especially, with natural light. We were enchanted by the little squirrels in the trees between the cabins, occasional fire flies at night and the birds in the morning. The staff... More
