This is the best hotel to stay in Sigiriya. Very close to the main attraction, Sigiriya Rock and with a fantastic view from the hotel. Rooms are big, spacious and clean. Staff is friendly. It feels like living in the midst of a jungle. The spa is excellent and very reasonably priced.
All rooms are on the ground floor and located amidst lots of greenery. Breakfast is good and the restaurant chef was very helpful- he even made a nice vegetarian dish for us on request.
2 small irritants - price of bottled water is very high and the USD-SLR exchange rate offered by the hotel wasn't very good.
Point to note that is that its meant for relaxation - if you re looking for nightlife, markets n reataurants nearby, then you should not stay in Sigiriya...then Dambulla is the town to stay.. However, I personally feel that its so much relaxing to stay in Sigiriya amidst nature, enjoy the rock and then chill at the hotel.
All in all - Sigiriya Rock and this hotel were the highlight of our 8 day long Sigiriya trip.
