Certificate of Excellence
Concept and Design Embracing one of Sri Lanka's most beloved animals, the elephant ('Aliya' in Sinhala), the Aliya Resort & Spa is set in the lush forests where elephants roam free. An artful blend of contemporary architecture and the minimalistic style with an authentic Sri Lankan touch, the resort aims to provide the distinctive experience of a villager's uncomplicated lifestyle. Location - Sigiriya, Sri Lanka Accommodation Each chalet's chic yet simple structural design has been carefully planned to blend in with its natural surrounding and have been built to comply with green building guidelines on energy and environment. The resort consists of 96 rooms that come equipped with all modern comforts, illustrating a discreet opulence. These rooms have been uniquely designed with the colours and motifs of Sri Lankan batik with themes mostly inspired by the elephant, giving them an artistic appeal. In addition to the chalets, the resort accommodate 18 spacious luxury tents.

Staff excellent. Fabulous pool. Decent restaurant. But we felt it lacked atmosphere. Main area rather like being in an airport. Accommodation generous size and comfortable but essentially in concrete blocks.

Mango sorbet and cold towel on arrival set the scene for a fabulous stay. Our room was amazing, the pool was one the best we’d seen at a hotel, a choice of 3 restaurants and the food at the 2 we tried was really good. The location was quiet and the views stunning.

"The rooms in the blocks of four around the gardens to the right of the hotel were ideally located."
"A room close to the pool with a view of all that rich greenary!!"
"All rooms are good"
"Cabins are very good but to get to them is down a narrow rough path"
"Best to choose a room nearer the pool area. We were too far away, and had to trek over there for a good 8 mins"
$99 - $227 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
