It was a really nice place but the management was in a really low level. The rooms were very untidy, the surroundings were very dry and it made our stay there uncomfortable into some extent. If it is managed well, the hotel could be in the top among the competitors. The food was not that much good in the first... More

We loved our stay at this unique hotel. Spent only one night there, although could have handled many more. The room with outside pool is a dream. Staff is super-friendly and will do just about anything for you. We stayed there in off-season and basically had the place to ourselves, which was another plus. Definitely would do it again.

Absolutely brilliant location , from the driveway to the chalets just gorgeous. The front of house team were young and willing to meet the customer needs. Very poor management, need to learn something from Indian Taj group and Oberio group in hospitality. The food for vegetarians was very poor, to that extent we skipped breakfast before we went to sigiriya.... More

This property used to be one of the top properties in the country. I was excited to travel and stay for 2 nights here with my family. We were offered the presidential suite.

On the road to Sigiriya, the hotel lobby gives you a great view over lion's rock. The rooms are well accommodated with high ceiling, huge bed and bathroom. Don't be fooled by the private plunge pool on the booking website, its mostly pictures of the Presidential villa plunge pool, deluxe room's one is so tiny there is no point using... More

Our get away to the Elephant Corridor could be rated as the best ever relaxation we have experienced in a hotel. Major improvements have to be made on the food and hospitality where the hotel could be catered to world class with the great atmosphere.

Don't listen to the negative reviews… this place is AMAZING and as far as I'm concerned the perfect resort. It blends in with it's natural surroundings whilst still being very much luxury.
