We had a wonderful time at the Sorowwa Resort and Spa in June 2014. The room was just lovely with fantastic views. The hotel is pleasant and has a very calm atmosphere and the sunset was just awesome. All the staff are happy and very helpful. In the morning you can watch the villagers wash their clothes in the lake... More

This was a great spot to base ourselves for a few days while we visited Sigiriya, Anuradhapura and wildlife parks. The hotel is very new and very clean, our room was lovely and with a great view of the lake. The staff are charming and if anything too attentive! That is not a complaint, most are young and most probably... More

Spent a night at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Nice serene view of the lake and you feel totally relaxed the moment you get in. Need a bit of improvement in the area of food, but a good overall experience. For those travelling with kids, the loft rooms are great. A small hotel, compact and nice with very friendly... More

Good property by the lake. I was very satisfied with the room and the ambiance. My children enjoyed the elephant safari which was right next to the hotel and an elephant can be sighted almost every hour. The food was below par and we expected a better variety for LKR 18,000 Full board double. It was quite surprising and dissapointing... More

Great personal balconies to watch the sunset. You can walk on the elephant path. Wonderfully spacious, sunny rooms. A nice, new feeling to the place which was refreshing after staying in older, established places.

We stayed for one night after visiting Sigiriya (Lions Rock) and Minneriiya. The staff were helpful and our room over looking the lake was beautiful. Unfortunately, as previously noted by others the room lacked many personal touches which for a hotel of this standard you would expect. The buffet food was less than adequate, even after complaining to the chef,... More
