“Exceptional service, tranquil location, fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We had an unforgettable experience and wished we could stay longer. Highly recommend this place, the staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. The food is fantastic and the ambience simply perfect. One of the best places I have ever stayed, no complaints whatsoever.

We stayed here for 6 nights and used as a base for sightseeing. This is an excellent hotel and very accommodating for families. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and kept very clean. Staff are excellent, friendly and always there to help. Recommend trying the al a'carte menu as food was delicious!

We had 4 wonderful nights at Camellia resort. We had a lovely room which was cleaned twice a day. The last time they clean they make up the bed in a fashionably way we really liked. Breakfast is good, dinner is excellent. Enough choice and everything is fresh and organic. We also liked the design of the bathroom and the sunboilers on the roof. Very ecofriendly!
A very nice convenience are the plants which make sure that there are no mosquitos.
The ayuveda spa is heavenly and the birdwalk really interesting. Staff is making you feel welcome and make sure your stay is a success.

Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it all. The receptionist staff was helpful and any time was a smile. We had a good time in the Camellia Resort. Each resort had a unique theme, which makes just walking around it interesting. The bed was quite comfortable and the night quiet. I enjoyed both breakfasts very much. Lala & Budi was the front office does a fantastic job of assisting us. Overall a happy stay at Camellia..

This new hotel still has some small shortcomings but it certainly is a wonderful place. Lots of green and lots of fresh air with great attention to small details, such as lemongrass plants to keep away mosquitoes. Rooms are nicely designed with lots of light and some have a view on Sigiriya rock from the balcony. The food is great and the service excellent. The hotel has a very good location in the heart of the cultural triangle in close proximity to Sigiriya and Dambulla with Minneriya, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura within reasonable distance. A place to recommend !

Room Tip: Some rooms have a view on Sigiriya rock from their balcony. Others have lots of greenery and birds.

My group and I arrived here late night but it was good that our dinner was there for us. The food was good. I like the room which is very big and comfy. In the early morning was really fresh, nice surrounding, very pleasant. The pool looks great but i don't have time to swim. The staff were very helpful. Do not hesitate to stay here.

Room Tip: I like downstair
