Home away from home ~ the friendliest hotel stay!

Posted May 23, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, Friendliness, Interior, Architecture, Food, People, Comfort, Wifi
Cons: Wasn't provided a menu for dinner or told about buffet costs.
Location: Fantastic. In the midst of nature. There is a lake and its in Habarana which is close to Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla, all locations of interest
Upon arrival at the hotel, while the staff checked our booking details, we were shown a comfortable sofa to relax in and served free drinks as a "welcome" along with refreshing cool towels. This was surprising and very welcoming after a long day of travel. Then, we were taken to our rooms with a very friendly porter who cheerfully carried our luggage amidst our concern over their weight. The room service staff were very friendly as well, always quick to serve and look after our needs during our stay. Dinner and Breakfast was buffet style with a variety of starters, main dishes, desserts and drinks. I'd suggest including breakfast as part of your board because it is totally worth it. As for dinner buffet, it might be expensive for those on a tight budget... especially if you order drinks or food aside from the buffet, as a waiter took and asked for our orders without providing us a menu with prices clearly stated. Aside for this small glitch, our stay at this hotel was fantastic. The rooms were clean, air conditioned, and even though there was no mosquito net, a mosquito repellent odour device that you need to plug in was provided. Bathrooms were clean and well supplied. Complimentary coffee, tea and water bottles. Fully stocked mini bar. Wifi worked fine for my laptop- though a little slow, but my friends found it difficult to receive wifi for their i-phones from our rooms though closer to the reception, they were able to. All in all, an amazing stay! Thank you Chaaya!

A good location for cultural triangle. The service and food was very good. Lots of local cuisine to choose from for dinner and breakfasts. Cinnamon lodge was good alternative for dinner

Enjoyed our stay!

Posted Mar 28, 2013
Pros: Good pool, buffet breakfast, nice for enjoying wildlife and nature. Loved the monkeys and the tiny squirrels!
Cons: Their menu only offers "Paul Mason" brand if you want to order wine by the glass. Poor choice of wine!
Location: Beautiful location for enjoying nature, wildlife and the Cultural Triangle.
Good hotel for touring the Cultural Triangle. Nice swimming pool, good buffet breakfast, tasty and affordable a la carte menu for dinner. They also offer a dinner buffet which we did not take. Enjoyed the monkeys and birdlife in the hotel surroundings. Recommended.

Chaaya Village - lovely lake, pathetic kitchen

Posted Dec 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
Pros: - Lovely lake access (saw monitor lizards, hawks, kingfisher, bee eaters etc) Cons: - Horrible kitchen (served a pizza with cold base which must be 1 inche thick) - Poor room service (tea maker rusted, took 2 hours to replace, bucket in washroom leaking - never replaced).
