Easily one of the best experiences that my family and I, along with my friends had! From the time of the reservation to the end of our stay, it was five-star treatment. Great ambience, with an amazing team of staff who were dedicated to give you that VIP treatment from the moment you enter the gate. The food was amazing, and the rooms were so beautiful. Once you enter, you get the same feeling as being in a five star resort! If you are a person that enjoys tranquillity, this would be the perfect get away.

How else to describe these villas? Amazing, perfect, exceptional We stayed for 2 nights this week and loved every last second , Lionel and Sampath are fantastic, both great characters and so helpful. The villa was luxiourious and the setting out of this world ! We stayed half board and the food was superb, beautifully cooked chicken, incredible rice and curry and the best freshly squeezed juices ever. I wish I could give more than 5 stars we had such a relaxing stay and the perfect location to go and see the elephant gathering only 10 minutes away( elephants even come into the grounds at night). Thank you again for a perfect stay.

A hidden treasure in Sigiriya ♥️ We were super lucky to come across this beautiful place for our stay in Sigiriya recently. As soon as we noticed this place online we got super excited. We initially planned to stay one night and then head back home. However, as soon as we got there, it changed our minds. Not only because of the beautiful setup, but also its people, efficient services, great food and nature. Owner Chandi, Manager Sampath and rest of the staff made sure that we had a pleasant stay. They were super friendly and very efficient. The view from the room is spectacular. Peacocks and variety of other birds are just outside the room. I can highly recommend this place to anyone who wishes to stay in a calm and quiet place to experience the beautiful nature with great hospitality

Stayed for 2 nights of our tour, and it was an absolute treat to feel restful and miles from anywhere in between our energetic forays to Dambulla and Sigyria. Our bungalow was very spacious and comfortable, with a lovely verandah on which to sit with a good cup of tea, watching and listening to the birds. We heard the elephants at night and saw their footprints in the day, and the wild peacocks displayed for us while we relaxed in the pool. The reception and dining areas are beautifully furnished and the staff were just amazing; they seemed to anticipate our every need. The food was beautifully cooked and delicious, with a really good and wonderfully presented breakfast. The overall ambience is like a really civilised safari. (My only negative is the outdoor bathroom, but that's just me!)
