I would agree with all the other comments made by other reviewers at this hotel. It is a superb setting amongst paddyfields in a remote part of the area (although you can see Sigiriya Rock from here). However, I thought I'd share one or two of my experiences at this hotel
All "rooms" are actually villas, some are on water and some are on the paddyfields. At the time that we went, the paddyfields seemed to be just a smelly marshfield, although this was maybe because we went out of season, or some may view it as being close to nature.
Going out of season had another disadvantage too - it meant that the hotel was hardly occupied. Now normally, I would love to stay in a hotel which wasn't full of noisy guests, but somehow with only two other guests staying here whilst we were staying here was a strange experience. If this place gains popularity (which it rightly should) then this should not be a problem in the future.
I have to make a particular mention about the food - it was truly great. The chef appeared very talented, and the choice of food on the menu (if somewhat restrictive for vegetarians) was very good.
