We were all pleasantly surprised when we reached the Thilanka Spa Hotel. Great decor in the reception area. The rooms are set out in 'houses'. Semi detached with rooms on the ground and first floor. Enough room to swing the cat round. In a beautiful setting next to paddy fields so we were careful to spray against mosquitoes. A nice... More

The entrance with the mango orchards giving lots of shade is a sanctuary by itself. The staff are very warm and welcoming and the property is maintained to the best of their capabilities. The rooms are large and have a specious sit out / balcony which is very relaxing after a long day of being on the road or visiting... More

When we arrived, we had a poor first impression as the hotel did not have a record of our reservation. The poor impression was based solely on the General Manager's attitude and rudeness to this and we have contacted the hotel about this. Aside from this we had a lovely stay at the Thilanka Resort and Spa with Ramesh and... More

Lovely resort laid out in a mango plantation. Long pool has one end in the open air foyer which also contains the bar at the other end and features very helpful and friendly bar men.The room was excellent but was quite a long walk from the lobby area. We had a hot water problem which had to be reported twice... More

Nestled among the greenery of Sigiriya; This place is the best to get some relaxation. Their concept of the "Kamatha" to have lunch is quite interesting. The meals served in "Kamatha" are uniquely Sri Lankan and paved us to have an unforgetable experience in Sri Lanka. The service and the staff is really great.

Beautiful & peaceful hotel just outside Dambulla, set away from the road, perfect for a relaxing stay whilst visiting the surrounding sites. Staff are great and the food in the restaurant is excellent. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the pool is perfect for a cooling swim after a day site seeing. Highly recommend

We loved this hotel and it's beautiful setting. The staff are all really friendly and helpful, especially Puttie the bar man. What lets it down is the maintenance. Our air con was so noisy, as was the fan. We never did get the TV to work and even after they tried to fix the air con it did not work... More

We stayed at Thilanka Resort Dambulla for three nights and it was the best decision I ever made. From our arrival to the departure everything was excellent: the most attentive and friendly staff, the beautiful and spacious room, the serene atmosphere and last but not least Chef Upali's delicious food which I miss so dearly when I'm back in Germany....

There is only a few rooms at Thilanka. I arrived after a 21 hour flight and a horrible 4 hour drive from the airport. The room is gorgeous, one of the best I have ever stayed in. There is a spa bath. The buffet stayed open for me to 10:30pm in the evening when I arrived. The staff were for... More
