Wonderful place in polonnaruwa. I choose this place for my engagement function and it was arranged perfectly in an outdoor location. Staff and the management is very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to isuru for all the arrangements as i requested. Thanks to chef for delicious Sri lankan foods. Buffet was awesome. Recommending this place for your function also your stay in Polonnaruwa. Location is beautiful. Definitely will visit this amazing place and the staff again.

Large, airy, well laid out restaurant. Very good buffet meals (Eastern) clean and tasty. Large garden area, accommodation for overnight stays available. Said to be owned by the daughter of the President of Sri Lanka. Men's toilet doors could not be closed properly, wash basins not cleaned for over a week. A sure sign that the management personnel have not sighted that area for some time.

We had a brilliant experience at this hotel, it is like a little piece of paradise in the middle of Polonnaruwa. Service was impeccable, the rooms lovely and comfortable. The food was sensational and they could not be a more accommodating group of staff. The pool was gorgeous and the surroundings delightful. I would highly recommend this hotel and I would make this my base next time and travel to see the cultural triangle. 10/10!! Loved it :)

The hotel has a great potencial with nice rooms and a great pool. However the aircon makes a lot of noise at night so we cannot sleep at all. The room was nice with good light. The pool has a nice view as well but with bugs that bite us. The food is more focused on Asian menu, for western is not easy to find something in the buffet.
