We stayed here for two nights as a couple. The hotel itself is lovely , clean rooms with comfortable bed and a nice pool to relax in after dusty temple visits. However we were coming to the end of our 3 week visit and were shocked to find that we didn't get the usual warm Sri Lankan welcome or in... More

Great green setting by paddy field. Was so relaxing. Had a lovely room; spa bath didn't work but was a lovely shower. The pool is good and a relaxing spot. I had an amazing massage there by a very sweet woman. Food is average which is a shame. They were great at knowing what I could have with my Allergy... More

The hotel is created very nicely facing a Paddy field. Only 4 rooms in a block, the rooms are spacious and I liked the styling used in the rooms. The choice of food served in buffet was little but OK ...Nice place to be :-) ...

Rooms are large, strong air con. Rainfall shower and jacuzzi bath. Pool is clean and refreshing. Had a massage here. Pricey and fine. Spa situated right next to the bar with only a bamboo curtain in between. You can hear all clattering and upbeat music. Jarred with my peaceful massage! Food was bad. We'd been in Sri Lanka 10 days... More

Large rooms spread out over a large area, we had problems with our air on the first Niigata but it was very quickly resolved the next day. Comfortable without being super modern, good buffet food, very nice staff and nice pool although all one depth.

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
