We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and absolutely loved it, Vil Uyana has a combination of being close to nature and hotel luxury that we've never experienced anywhere else. The different huts are set up so that you have an enclosed bedroom area and an open air living area with the shower, amenities etc. As most of the living area is open air you get wildlife such as bats, lizards etc coming to visit from time to time which is fun/scary depending on your viewpoint. The lake/marshland setting is absolutely beautiful and you can expect to see wildlife like peacocks and monitor lizards roaming around on a regular basis.
The food was very good and the staff very pleasant and helpful at all times. We had a massage at the spa which was excellent and thoroughly recommended and we also had a special evening meal up in a treehouse as it was my wife's birthday while we were staying which was a hilarious experience. Amusingly we were given a congratulatory cake on arrival for getting recently married and a another for my wife's birthday a day or so later so we were overrun with free cake! The location is great base for visiting Sigirya Rock fortress and Dambulla Caves etc.
