Pros: The swimming pool
Cons: The food
Location: Shigiriya
The room and bathroom were big enough and clean. We enjoyed three different swimming pools. However, the restaurants have limited choice of menu and the food was not good for what they chareged us. Only exception was the waffle served in the morning. Unfortunately, we stayed only one night so I did not have time to use the sport gym but enjoyed the swimming pool.

Unreal experience

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Amazing architecture. Rooms are beautiful. 3 amazing pools to relax in. Great good at the restaurant, the steak was the best I have had outside Australia. The food is the most expensive we came across which was a bit of a downfall because you can't really go anywhere else to eat because the hotel is so isolated.

Architectural masterpiece

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: Monkeys everywhere!
Cons: The dining was either a full on buffet or a pretentious formal restaurant which lacked ambiance and polish.
Location: It's above a beautiful reservoir and there are lovely walks and an elephant to ride!
It is a grand imposing structure built into the rock with strong ecological awareness.

A must do

This hotel lives up to all the amazing things you read and hear for sure! Book early (since they sell out fast) and you won't be disappointed by the room, facilities, service, views, and food! Enuf said...just go!

Fantastic Location

Posted Nov 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Wonderful location, the eco friendliness of the hotel & surroundings. Wildlife on your doorstep, great views, fantastic swimming pools, wonderful hotel staff, great food, very clean. Adequately close for some of the excursions (e.g. Sigiriya). Got some great romantic settings for special occasions.

Stay with friends

Posted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: The hotel is situated in the middle of the nature with animals and trees and an amazing view from the swimming pool
Cons: More activities are needed in the hotel, the evening is very quiet in the hotel
Very original hotel near the lake and built on a rock, unforgettable experience when you see monkeys on your balcony
