I would just say make sure you spend some time in the hotel to stay at the pool, do some spa treatments or meditate outdoor. There are bikes you can take to explore the property thats certainly something nice for families to do.

We had good hopes at the time we reserved this hotel for one night to stay after cricket match between Sri Lanka vs Pakistan on August 30th 2014. Our all expectations were dissaphere at two separate stages. First is at the check in front desk and second was moment we entered in to our reserved Royal Suite Room. Front desk:... More

The location is outstanding - the rooms are very spacious. Could have been a tru 5 star hotel if the amenities in the rooms (towels, soap, dryer...) were of a better quality. Ask for quotations first when you want extras - we were surprised by the price of a birthday cake. Great experience at the spa. .

I would start by saying that the description of the hotel on the various websites does not do it justice. Beautiful location, excellent spacious rooms and the staff was simply and genuinely very welcoming, helpful, and pleasant. We were prepared to extend our stay despite the fact we would lose our money for our next booking. regretfully there was no... More

We traveled all across Sri Lanka, and this was definitively our best hotel of the trip. We chose to limit our stay due to the mixed reviews in Tripadvisor. What a mistake! This turned to be a much more charming hotel than many other resorts which received higher grades. The rooms are just gorgeous, especially those with the plunge pool... More

We spent 1 evening here and did really enjoy it. I was a little concerned after reading all the terrible reviews but here was our thoughts. 1) it is expensive but the hotel and grounds are stunning. The rooms are just lovely-note the plunge pool is simply a small pool of cold water not a hot tub or jaccuzi. The... More

This hotel is simply a dream. Rooms are incredibly spacious, having a living room and a separate bed zone. The bathroom is huge as well but the highlight is surely the indoor pool. Only, the water is quite cold so you can t really relax in it. Staff is caring and always smiling. Restaurant is good even if breakfast could... More

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
