Thank you very much Jeewantha – F&B | Chef Ranjith and all the staff. We spent our stay with fine wine and food from Chef Ranjith and lovely service from Jeewantha and his staff in the restaurant overlooking the amazing scenery of Sigiriya rock.

- This is a 78acre property built in 2003, a place which was more or less reserved for rich foreigners or the the local elite with a price tag of 60K or more 10 years back. One of the most expensive places those days and a place I had heard of but never thought will be visiting one day at... More

The landscape from the restaurant is great, going for a walk around the place is nice, you will see many wild animals (iguana, snakes, squarels, monkeys, peacocks...). The service is very nice, everybody is smiling and propose help or asks if everything is OK. The rooms are very large, good AC, very nice view. We also appreciated the private pool,... More

A must stay if visiting Sigiriya, brightened up my trip even though the Sigiriya rock (main reason for going there) wasn't all that impressive. The staff were charming and friendly, the location was tranquil and relaxing and the hotel itself is quite beautiful. The only thing I would say is that I encountered quite a few mosquitoes-a minor distraction.

If you're looking for a few relaxing days in isolation, then this is the place. The rooms are gorgeous, each having a plunge pool and overlooking amazing scenery by the lake. At night you hear animal sounds, it's quite special. The pool area is also very nice, only 400 m walk from the deluxe rooms or by buggy. The staff... More

First image is good, very nice property and good service at check-in. However, the facilities need a renewal (our door didn´t open/close properly), and the cleaning was poor (apart from the insects, which in that area may be difficult to control, there was a mouse in the room, which is not acceptable). We stayed only one night, and only noticed... More
