The Hideout Sigiriya
Ranked #13 of 107 Sigiriya B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We stayed at The Hideout for three days of our honeymoon, and it was private, peaceful and relaxing. The staff were incredibly welcoming, the breakfast was plentiful and the service great. The room was clean and spacious, we paid extra to upgrade to a room with a better quality bathroom. The small outdoor pool was ideal to cool off in after a hot day, and it was ideally located for Sigirya Rock, Polunwara and Dambulla Cave Temples.

The Hideout had only been open 2 months at the time if visiting, and was still a work in progress. The shower was either freezing or boiling, the mosquito net was ineffective and we were badly bitten and we kept having to ask for more toilet roll.

However, it was good value for money and I would highly reccomend it as quality mid-range accomodation in Sigirya - and suspect that this time next year it will be thriving with travellers.

We stayed in this guesthouse 4 nights and we found it perfect. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Upali, his wife and the staff are very caring. We enjoyed the pool and the garden. We especially appreciated the sri lankan food served every night and the rich breakfast( fresh fruits, pancakes, bread, jam, eggs...). Upali's precius advice really helped us organizing our tours.

Upali and his wife have created a very nice place for travellers to base themselves whilst in Sigiriya. The newer rooms were clean and comfortable although possible could have had an extra piece of furniture given the large size. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The pool (and floating sun lounge!) was a welcome way to cool off after a visit to Sigiriya by bike. The top floor of the guest pavilion has great views over the farm and across to Sigiriya rock, and this area will only get better once Hideout's alcohol licence is approved and some cos furniture is added (as planned).

My father and me stayed for two nights in August 2013. It was our favourite accommodation (and we wish we had skipped our trip north to Anuradhapura ruins and Wilpattu national park and stayed here to explore Polonuwarra and national parks.)

The restaurant, pool, gardens, staff and care were 5 star. My father is 75, not in perfect health and I thank Ulpati and his wife and team for making him feel great about himself.

The rooms/bungalows are simple and attractive, and I loved ours, which had green colours, a little kitchen and space and light and fresh air. Each morning fresh flowers were set out in water bowls at our front gate, which was gorgeous.

It is a great and happy place to stay: cosmopolitan and calm and a great expression of the owners' pride in modern Sri Lanka. The chef is very skilled. We loved!

And - repeating my "traveller's tip", if you are choosing between the ruined cities, choose Polonuwarra and stay here!

The hideout is a nice place with an amazing staff, super friendly and really trying to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The pool is wonderful and since there are not that many rooms in the hotel, you very often have it for yourself.
The food is good and if there's something you don't like the cook can always prepare you something else. The garden is also very pleasant. The only small negative is that some of the rooms are a bit basic and lack the little something that would make this the perfect place.
Definitely a place I would recommend.

If you looking for a great base, with exceptional service then here's your place. Set amongst paddy fields , complete with tree houses and views of the rock it is a great place to relax. The food was some of the best I have had in sri Lanka and for two afternoons I had the pool all to myself which was amazing. Would definitely recommend. The staff really looked after me and made sure that OK had a great stay.

Room Tip: Do go on the safari, it was amazing.
