We had booked our stay at Lakmini Lodge on the Hasthi booking website well in advance. When I tried to contact Lakmini to let them know our driver would also need a place to stay, the phone numbers didn't work, and two emails I sent bounced. Eventually I got a reply to an email, which offered to make a reservation.... More

Very clean and new hotel. Beautiful and very spacious rooms. Perfect for a family. Nice breakfast and great view on Sigiriya rock. The management is very helpful if you need anything. Only monus is that there were sometimes groups of noisy youngsters staying there.

We were unlucky on the first night with a slow fan but we changed rooms the next night and slept fine. Theres 2 things that really made this place for us. The first was the... More

Nice place - the owner is a good guy who is willing to help with booking tours etc. The view from the garden is fantastic - you can see the rock..! There are different types of rooms. Old ones with a fan, and a new building where I guess you are able to see the rock from the balconies. There's... More

I stayed at lakmini lodge for two days. The room and bathroom was simple but clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The standard was good for the price. They offer tours including safari, elephantrides and a lot more. The owner gave a lot of useful information for my further trip.

We found the place by sheer luck. It turned out to be a wonderful experience, thanks to chandy, the owner. He's really helpful ad has a network of contacts all over the country. He will recommend places to stay and visit. Will also show you around the place and you'll see things that aren't in guidebooks. Oh, and the tree... More

Best kept secret in Sigirya, excellent views of Lion rock. Especially from the roof terrace - where the owner directed me so I could do my morning yoga in peace and quiet. It really was the most beautiful setting. OK, breakfast was a little slow but at this price you really can't complain. A lovely bunch of people running the... More

Really helpful owner - will book any tours you want. Helped me to get onto a shared jeep safari to Minneriya with a different lodge because I couldn't afford to get a whole van for myself. Relaxing treehouse to spend the hot middle of the day in with a view of the rock. Breakfast was amazing! Would definitely recommend.
