We really loved staying at thick forest. It was a bit like posh camping really with wooden huts suspended high in the trees. It was wonderful t be able to spot our roof tops from the top of sigiriya rock, they really sit alone in the middle of the jungle.
We ate here both nights as there is not really anywhere else to go apart from the sigiriya hotel and the food was very good. It gave us a chance to try lots of different things, some of which we loved and some we didn't but it was interesting and all well cooked.
We went to the sigiriya hotel to use their pool both days and only paid 1.25 each time. Their pool is great but I think our treehouses provided us with more fun.
