We stayed here for couple of nights during our tour in Sri Lanka. The resort grounds are huge and nicely landscaped. Very nice swimming pool The room we got was pretty poor though. The room floor is somekind of green vinyl which color your feet. The room was also quite worn. While it might have been cool and hip in... More

We had a lovely stay at the hotel. The gardens are beautiful with many mango trees and it has a lovely pool overlooking a small paddy field. Location is convenient as well- short drive to the famous Dambulla temple. Also be sure to check out the food stall just opposite the hotel for some traditional Sri Lankan food.

I have stopped for lunch during on our way to Habarana. I was stoned from the breathtaking view. When you enter the place you see a large garden and a walk way. Once you go in to the lobby you will see the pool and an awesome view of green paddy field. They have a long pool which runs from... More

Large, modern rooms with a super-sized bath which we decided would take too long to run! We stayed for 3 nights in May and were delighted there were not many other guests, adding to the tranquility of the location among the padi-fields. A wonderful place to locate yourself to see the Cultural Triangle. We returned mid-afternoon each day and enjoyed... More

This is a beautiful hotel. From the driveway to the reception area to the pool to the rooms. We spent only one night here and it was during heavy rains so I don't think we even got to appreciate the full impact of the design as it would look under the sun. Checking in and out was very quick and... More

We were seduced by the pictures on the web site to stay at this hotel - a big mistake!! Compared to the other 3 hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka this was far and away the lowest quality. The room we stayed in was in a very distressed state- the wardrobes and bath room were of very poor quality.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night after visiting Sigiriya Rock. The room is adequate and mosquito free. It also has a wonderful pool which was a welcome sight under the swelling heat. Downside was we experienced a blackout in the evening but the electricity came back after a couple of minutes. In additional, we ran out of toothpaste... More

Arrived at the hotel in the evening after a long day of traveling, and was pleasantly surprised by the look of the hotel, the pool, and the room. Took a quick dip in the pool which was lined by mango trees decorated with fairy lights. It was very pretty! Dinner wasn't great tasting, but ok I guess. This would be... More
