4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed one night on our visit to Sigyria. The hotel has a real feel of being on safari with splendid early morning and late evening views. Small hotel with some accomodtion in bungalows. Nice pool area, bar and restuarant area. Staff are very helpful and friendly. It is a small hotel with fifty rooms, so nice ambiance. We left early... More

This was the first accommodation for our Sri Lankan adventure. We stayed for 2 nights and were really comfortable. Our bungalow was #123 which was near the pool and close to the dining hall and reception. The grounds are well-maintained and there are many birds visiting. We didn't see the peacocks but we certainly heard them! The staff was friendly... More

Reminded me of good quality African safari lodge. The accommodation was clean and pleasant. The food was fair but heavy emphasis on the curry at all meals. There was always an alternative though. A pleasant small pool was a welcome addition when we had a bit of down time.

This was the first hotel that we stayed in after arriving in Sri Lanka and for us it was just what was needed after nearly a full day travelling. The accommodation was a semi-detached bungalow which was clean and comfortable. The neighbours were very loud but I could not blame the hotel for that. The food in the buffet style... More

Average quality place. Service of the staff is good. Rooms are not in good condition. Rooms are very spacious. But the water is very sticky and not purified well. Not much variety and quality of food. Waited long time at the entrance get some ones attention.

This hotel was chosen by our tour operator. Since we had not chosen an expensive tour we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were pretty standard, but the quality of the food was excellent. A buffet was served which had a huge range of both western and Sri Lankan food, all freshly cooked. Most of our group chose the local food... More

My boyfriend and I never made it to Kassapa. My boyfriend's mom passed away while he was on his way to Sri Lanka. When we informed the management about our situation and asked for a bit of assistance, they refused to give us back even a fraction of our reservation fee. The reason they gave? They overbooked during that weekend... More

I never made it to Kassapa due to the sudden death of my mother 3 days before my arrival. After giving them 24+ hours notice of the situation, they refused to refund any of our 2 night stay despite several attempts to offer any documentation necessary, etc. I was extremely disappointed they couldn't make any sort of exception due to...

This is a beautiful hotel, set in a serene rural area but within 20 minutes of Sigiriya Rock, and within an hour or so of Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura, and Dambulla, this property is ideally situated. At the end of a hot day, the clean and moderately large pool offers a welcome dip, accompanied by the sounds of peacocks and other birds... More
