I visited this resort for 2 days during my trip to Sri Lanka. It is located very near to the Sigiriya rock fortress. The facilities are good but any shortfall is more than made up by excellent service offered by Jay and his boys. They took care to prepare a vegetarian meal for me and even served breakfast at 11:30... More

Everything about Jay's Holiday Resort is great. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable. You feel like you are in the jungle! The pool is fabulous. This is now a hotel I recommend to my friends planning visits to Sri Lanka. You won't be disappointed!

Stayed for 2 nights here and it was a lovely hideaway. Surrounded by jungle and with plenty of greenery between the buildings means you have the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. Service was excellent and the staff were incredibly helpful. Our room was huge as nd very clean. Dinner was excellent value. The pool was great after... More

Very nice place out of town with a nice garden and a swimming pool. Rooms large, clean and with all you need. The service was very prompt and all people very kind. Food was good, even if the menu for dinner is not too large. You can do birdwatching just sitting in the garden. The owner is a nice and... More

We started our trip in Sri Lanka with 4 nights in this hotel and it was a very good way to start. The location is very enjoyable, in the middle of the forest, with a nice pool to relax after some day excursions. We were there with our 3 years old daughter, and we recommend. The crew was absolutely lovely... More

I stayed at Jays for two nights. At first, I was a little worried because my AC was not very cool, but they instantly switched my room. AC there took forever to cool off, but by morning I was FREEZING. So, be patient. Rooms are clean, but bathrooms could use an upgrade. Very old and run down. No wifi in... More

It was definitely a delightful stay in Jay's Resort. Family with young children will find the room spacious. Room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. Aircon is working fine and it is a bonus in midst of hot weather. Premise is safe and children can play around the big space. Location of resort is very near to places of interest... More

I stayed here for 2 nights during the low season. My room was large and could see it being a great place for a small family. I was the only guest but this was not a problem because during breakfast, I was treated like a queen. I met with the owner Jay over my first breakfast and was introduced to... More
