I stayed here for 3 nights while exploring the triangle of historical treasures in the region. The hotel is lovely with outstanding views of the mountains, valley and the neighborhood elephant. The pool was clean and refreshing and they even made cute towel animals on the bed. :) The staff were superb and I can't fault this for a short... More

We visited Sorowwa resort and spa especially after seeing it's scenic beauty through a TV programme. The place looks very calm and relaxing to be for a change. Loved the rooms - the size of the room with the see through bathroom, the outside view through the balcony. We had a swim in the pool however the water is extremely... More

Lovely location,beautifully restored building. Easy access to Sigiriya, ordinary food, great room but bathroom not very functional for older folk who can't step in to the bath for a shower. The food was very ordinary and the female staff on the desk were surly and abrupt at best. The male staff are hospitality trained and it shows. I'd go back... More

Stayed for 3 nights while visiting the cultural triangle for which the hotel is well situated. I got first a room with a bad odor in the bathroom. I went to the recrption and asked to get another room. I was told that the hotel was fully booked (which wasn't true) and the service boy was sent to solve the... More

This resort was wonderful. Check in was friendly, offering a welcome juice and quick with any information needed. The rooms were clean, hot water in and good pressure in the showers. The view from the balcony was stunning, as we overlooked the lake and could watch elephants and other wildlife go by. Breakfast buffet was plentiful, service excellent. I would... More

This was a lovely hotel, in a wonderful location, overlooking 2 lakes, with elephants giving rides to tourists ambling along the lakeside. Magnificent sunsets from the balcony! The hotel is small and more intimate than huge hotels, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent with lots of choice. Our room was spotless, spacious with a... More

This is a pleasant medium sized hotel in a nice location overlooking the large lake with picturesque elephant rides creating a lovely tableau. The approach to the hotel isn't auspicious with the most uneven rocky road imaginable leading to the door - I don't know why they don't get this fixed. Service is very friendly but with a degree of... More

We had an excellent experience. It started before we even reached the hotel, still making our way from Colombo for a late evening checkin. Around 21:00 the hotel phoned our driver to see what time he expected to arrive as they had to close down the buffet. Would they like us to prepare a couple of plates of food for... More

We only stayed for a night but this was the only stay what I would not recommend as there are far better hotels in Sri Lanka and there might better ones in the close region as well. The location is in a slum area and road to the place is awfully bad, almost brakes the car. The staff is nice... More

I read the other reviews, & yes there may have been little things to complain about, but they're not things that are any different to other Sri Lankan hotels.. And the staff are well meaning, even if they completely don't get how to mix lime with vodka, or make a capuccino, or just forget it altogether. Our rooms overlooked the... More
