We stayed in this great tree house with balcony and view to Sigiriya rock. With sunil one of our hosts we went to Pidurangala a rock besides Sigiriya Rock. It was a phantastic trip. The rice and curry was very good, but a bit expensive.

Nice stay in this atypical hotel. The room was charming and confortable with sanitary inside. Lovely terrasse with view on the Sigiriya rock. For the diner, we didn't eat at the hotel because it was too expensive. But the breakfast (included in the room rate) was good.

There are just three cabin trees in the middle of the jungle just some meters away from Sigirya Rock. In fact you can see it from the Cabin Tree. Regarding the food, the only choice is Sri Lankan. At night you can hear the monkeys.

We enjoyed our stay at thick forest. Both of our hosts, sunil and ajithnandana were fantastic hosts who were warm, informative and extremely accommodating. They helped us adventure off on our own when we wanted to and Sunil guided us when we needed it (and did a great job!) Dinners were very expensive at 1200 per person but they were... More

First off the location. It's called Thick Forest, so expect to be in the forest and it can be a little bit difficult to get to (get good directions before you go). We really enjoyed that aspect of it. We did have a frog in the toilet, I thought it was hilarious and loved it, fiance...not so much. Small number... More

From March 2014 onward hotel was under the new management, and we did renovations as well. We have solved all the matter you faced at that time. Now we have corrected the location on maps in Agoda and Booking.com and now you can get correct directions from it. As our hotel situated in the forest, super market and other places... More

We stayed at The Thick Forest for an entire week - and loved every day of it. We booked the property easily through Agoda, and hired a driver to take us there from Kandy. He found it with minimal fuss. The place itself was a little way out of the 'main' part of Sigiriya (there is not much too Sigiriya!),... More

We were at Thick Forest for 1 day. We were the only one there, and of course we had the best room of them all, up high and with the perfect view to the lion rock. We were not bothers much by bugs or other kind of animals actually. The bed was good and the shower okay, but the toilet... More

I booked this as a surprise for our 2 boys. They stayed in their own tree house and they highly raved about the experience. They had a big lizard in their room which they found very exciting and I heard them talking long after the sun had set. The tree houses have proper windows so are not open to the... More
