4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Small hotel with 23 spacious rooms most with large balconies over looking the Habarana reservoir. Placed centrally in the cultural triangle, with easy access to Anuradhapura, Avukana, Mihintale, Polonnaruwa, Segiriya, Damblla, Ritigala, and many more attractions, this is the perfect base for exploring the area and for relaxation. Facilities include a lovely swimming pool, small gymnasium, and a spar offering... More

Staying here for 3 days to be able to capture some sight seeing locally. The room is great and the balcony view is mesmerising looking at all the wildlife. The thing that could be better is the staff being multi lingual. For example you ask for a coffee then have to tell a few more people until you find one... More

We stayed here for two nights and were really pleased with this hotel. Our room had a great view of the lake and the food was lovely with a good selection. All the staff were friendly and helpful. You can see plenty of wild birds if you take an early morning stroll along the lake side. It was a great... More

We stayed here 3 nights and can't speak more highly of this hotel. I am sometimes unsure what other reviewers expect. Ok wi-fi isn't in the room, although we could just get it in 206 and 207, the idea is to have a Holiday, you Fong need it in your room, it's no effort to go down to the fantastic... More

Stayed at this hotel for a few days after Christmas and the view really is stunning over the lake. Unfortunately the hotel was just a little worn and dated and wasn't up to the standard that it really could have been with a little work. The rooms were nice but things were breaking, for example my parents ' AC didn't... More

Nested at the edge of a small lake, Sorowwa Resort is a small resort which is modern in design but surrounded by the tranquillity of nature. It looks and feels fairly new and everything works mostly, although we didn’t manage to lock onto a wifi signal from our room on the third floor. Our friends one floor below had better... More

Ok the road is very "local" for 100m and the restaurant struggled to provide a full range of choices but that was because it was off-season and there were few visitors. Staff were very friendly. It helps to have a sense of humour which I suspect some other reviewers may find a challenge. We enjoyed reasonably priced good food once... More

One of Sri Lankas best designed hotels, with sensational wildlife views, with lots of environmental qualities, let you down by silly mistakes. The worst of course, there is no wifi in the rooms, owner probably thinks that he can raise consumption, by forcing people to use the open air lobby, very unpleasant because of the mosquitoes. Strange is that in... More

If we could give zero stars we would. So we say boycott this place We only went for the elephant riding and not the hotel but since the elephant riding is owned by the same people we are posting this very poor review. Why? We told them why and were not offered any money back or an apology. We were... More

We arrived at the hotel expecting to relax in sorowwa resort for a three night stay in habarana. In reality we didn't enjoy our stay at all. The rooms are old, with wet stains (in the first night we stayed in a room with leakage in the bathroom). The pool was too cold and dirty with insects all over and... More
