The Hideout Sigiriya
Ranked #13 of 100 Sigiriya B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We stayed two nights, in order to have a full day for Sigiriya Rock and the surroundings. The hotel is some kilometers away from the rock, but you can rent bikes (additional fee applies, but they're cheap anyway). The pool was perfect for relaxing after hiking and biking. The area around the hotel is really beautiful, with lakes/tanks, rice fields, narrow paths... Peacocks wander in the surroundings. Sunsets were amazing. The food was very good (we took the half board option, it's worth as there're no other places to eat close by) and the room was big and clean (although it could be improved with some more furniture). There're mosquito nets and wifi works well. The owners and staff were welcoming and helpful. I would love to go back and enjoy the calm of the place again.

We loved it! We were sorry to leave this peaceful place in the middle of paddy fields. You can see nothing but greenery and in the distance - the rock itself. It is exactly what the name says: the hideout.

The accommodation is great, very comfortable, functional and clean. The only thing I would mention are thin walls so you feel like you have roommates ;)

There is a very nice garden with a great swimming pool, very well maintained and a few sunbeds to relax.

The location was perfect for us. As it's 6km from the rock we rented bicycles and used them for the whole day. It's centrally located between a few attractions so you could use the place as a base to explore a few other places.

The owners are really friendly and helpful, food was typical Sri Lankan and very tasty. You feel right at home from a moment you arrive and are greeted with a smile and a nice drink.

The Hideout was recommended to me by a Sri Lankan friend who I know through my job in New York. I was looking to visit Sigiriya based on rave reviews from my parents, among other people.

I got a wonderful welcome from Upali & Sujatha, and they really looked after me during my brief stay at the the Hideout. It was the friendly, personal service that really set this hotel apart: every meal was a personal experience! The food was excellent, and the rooms were basic but very nice. The pool was great for relaxing after a long day of hiking Sigiriya and tracking down elephants at the local national park.

I got good advice and great conversation at every turn, and I was sorry to leave. This is a great option for anyone looking for a friendly & great value stay in the Sigiriya area. Thanks again to Upali & Sujatha & all the staff!

The place was nice, clean swimming pool, great view from terrace and treehouse. The staff was helpful, although they didn't tell us about bikes rent fee. They have bikes that you can rent and go to Sigiriya Rock which was awesome! Be careful when booking the room by agoda, because they have wrong pictures. We booked deluxe room (which occured to be something like budget room or lower) and the room didn't look like on pictures. Manager told us that agoda put wrong pictures on their webside, and the pictures showed superior room.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time there. The setting of the hotel is absolutely fantastic and gives a breath taking view of the Sigiriya Rock over the green paddy fields. Upali and Sujatha are truly caring people and made our whole family feel so homely. Food is excellent. Specially you need to try their speciality the "fried lake fish". Its absolutely delicious. The hotel is clean and very child friendly. The pool is so clean and nice. I would specially recommend this place for families with children to experience nature. Rooms are clean and large. All in all its a wonderful place to be.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with family ask for the family room

A very friendly place adjacent to the rice fileds. From the balcony you can see Sigiriya rock in the distance. We enjoyed a very peacful New Year´s Eve with a big buffet dinner with excellent food. The owner try everything to make you feel comfortable. The pool is clean and refreshing after cycling to SIgiriya rock and back. Only the extra charge for the poorly serviced bikes seems inappropriate. Definitely recommended.
