We arrived three days after the official opening, a month after the pre-opening. I would like to give it a 5* but I cant despite the amazing complex, spacious rooms, great food and the friendly staff. I do understand that certain things still had to be fixed (elevator, running water for bath tub, …). Just it will never provide the same luxury than other 5* hotels. And with due respect, that’s what I expect for that price. Otherwise than that I can highly recommend a stay there. They offer (free) driver accommodation as well.

An artful blend of contemporary architecture and the minimalistic style with an authentic Sri Lankan touch, the resort aims to provide the distinctive experience of a villager's uncomplicated lifestyle. Location - Sigiriya, Sri Lanka Accommodation Each chalet's chic yet simple structural design has been carefully planned to blend in with its natural surrounding and have been built to comply with green building guidelines on energy and environment. The resort consists of 96 rooms that come equipped with all modern comforts, illustrating a discreet opulence. These rooms have been uniquely designed with the colours and motifs of Sri Lankan batik with themes mostly inspired by the elephant, giving them an artistic appeal.
