The room and ensuite toilet was clean comfortable. Do keep your doors and windows close though if you do not wish to have any friendly visitors like toads and and flying insects in your room since its in the jungle. Very friendly and helpful staff who made sure I had everything I need. The food at the restaurant is good... More

I found this place by accident, I looked at a few places, and this was definitely the best. I am a single 50 year old female cycling through Sri Lanka for 3 weeks. I immediately felt comfortable here, I intended to stay for 2 nights, but my tree house is so gorgeous I am staying here for 5 nights. The... More

This tree-house hotel is simply amazing! Located in the jungle you get the full wildlife experience, jungle roars and bird chirping from the minute you arrive! We stayed in the top tree-house with a magnificent view of Sigirya Rock and access to a nice private balcony. Nandawe (owner) very kindly offered to drive us to Sigiriya Rock in the morning... More

Been there for about 2 days and they where magical and mind relaxing experience.. Never been in that much nature you sleep and wake up in birds singing and breathtaking view of the Sigiriya Rock.. An experience I will never forget!

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
