“A beautiful resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

On our pit stop, we decided to check into this hotel. My experience was tremendous.

The resort is located very close to the famous Sigiriya rock but has a few attractions of its own.
It is spread over a vast acreage and is amazing to have walks during the early mornings and evenings. They have individually spaced out row houses and villas, and each cluster of them have a attraction attached i.e. rice field in one place and a garden in the other.

The rooms are very cosy and nice, and the bathrooms stock the necessary toiletries of decent quality. The Porch has a lounger, to sit and read or relax.

The food at the restaurant is just about OK, with both a la carte and buffet on offer. The breakfast was ample and good in taste too. The best part of the evening was the Arrack cocktails we had at the bar. Made with fresh ingredients, they tasted like sweet nectar.

Overall, this place is a good option if you have Sigiriya on your itinerary and are also looking to spend a few ore days to unwind. It isn't too heavy on the pocket too.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, half board. Rooms were close to the main building. food was good and plentiful. we were unlucky to stay at the same time as a large party 40+ of Chinese, which the management catered for.( I would have done the same) But they were like locust when they attended the buffet and you can imagine how it looked after they had finished. The second night we made sure we got in first. I have nothing to complain about the hotel at all, so much so when they closed the bar area, we had a couple of quiet drinks with staff outside our rooms.

This was a find from the Lonely Planet, we were not in Sigiriya long and had spent a few days during our holiday travelling so we wanted a chilled out day by the pool. For a nominal charge (cannot remember how much, sorry) we were able to use the facilities for the day (swimming pool, restaurant, towels etc). The pool wasnt as clean as I would have expected it to be which was the only issue really. Apart from that staff were great, very attentive. There were monkeys running all around the pool and sun loungers (watch out for the red ones, they steal) however the attendant made sure they did not get too close. We had lunch here which was reasonable by UK standards (but a little dear compared to the rest of SL, but this is because it's a hotel). The hotel is a 5-10 minute drive from Sigiriya rock and local restaurants/shops. A gem of a hotel in the middle of tranquil Sigiriya. Would have loved to have stayed for a night or two

Finding that we had individual cabins/cottages as our main accommodation we were really enthusiastic about our short stay. The grounds are beautifully maintained and give the opportunity, if that's what you're looking for, to checkout the local wildlife - monkeys, lizards, terrapins and some wonderful birds. The rooms are really well-appointed with some lovely Sri Lankan wall hangings, well-planned lighting and nicely-appointed bathrooms.
A stroll takes you to the bar and restaurant. The whole complex is open-sided, so is always pleasantly airy. The staff are very, very attentive ( we were pleased to see how many of them were badged as trainees). The buffet meals were exceptional and there were always staff around to advise and recommend. I was travelling with a group of birders but would happily book into Sigirya Village with my wife.
There's plenty to do around the area - not least, if you're that way inclined, scale Lion Rock!

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Sigiriya Village and greatly enjoyed our stay. The staff was attentive and interacted like in no other Hotel we visited during our two weeks holiday through Sri Lanka. We had good fun with the Waiters and the Managers in charge were happy to hear our opinions on how the make the Hotel even better.

I also greatly enjoyed Bird watching with Malaka, their Environment Executive/Naturalist. It would be nice to see if the Hotel could organize a program bringing the Nature closer to the guests.

The hotel had arranged a real cultural heritage lunch for the SAARC delegates. there was a small paddy field, a man ploughing, a tree hut where a man was singing folk songs, display of grinding and pounding grain. Then lunch on lotus leaves, real indigenous curries and sweetmeats, which also included sweet toddy straight from the tree.

Room Tip: if you are going in a group request this special lunch layout
