This lodge is perfect stay in Sigiriya. Owner is nice and fiendly man will help you on any questions. From lodge you could enjoy view to the Sigiriya Rock. Location is very good, just 15-20 minutes to main entrance by foot. Curry is the best in the whole Sri Lanka - you should try it! :)

We really enjoyed our stay at the lakmini lodge! The room was clean, the owner is really helpful and the breakfast was also good. The lion rock was a highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka! You can get there just in a 5min tuk tuk drive. In the evening we could enjoy a really delicious curry at the lakminii... More

My friend and me stayed 2 nights there and had a great time! Rooms were simple, clean and at reasonable prices. Highlight is definitely the tree house with an amazing view to Sigiriya Rock and - if you're lucky - to see some wild elephants. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the cooking of his wife was delicious!!

Had a good time at lakmini lodge. Friendly staff, specially Gayan, nice practicing english with him. Such a great character. Breakfast with view on the rock is great, however one branche of the tree should be cut for full view ;)

The real gem is the treehouse in the garden, that is a rustic hut where you can have breakfast or han out with a fantastic view of the Rock. This created... More

Lakmini Lodge was an experience… The guy who runs it was desperate for us to stay there and was a mixture of quite sweet and helpful and overbearing and untruthful. He told us the hostel had wifi, when actually you had to walk up a dirt road and sit outside his house to use the internet and the rooms weren’t... More
