Stayed for two nights, and they where excellent! It’s very beautiful and truly an experience being so close to nature! It is very close to both Piduranagala rock and Sigiriya rock, so we climbed both with plenty extra time. The staff was super helpful with travel information and even made us our lunch to go when we where too late for elefant safari :) The food was great too! All in all I would absolutely recommend this place! We loved it!

Frankly I feel bad writing this. I had just an okay experience here and others had an amazing one. They even talked about it and I overheard. Basically it boils down to this: the treehouses are amazing. But the regular cottages - which is what I got - are just okay. And that plus the very hard beds made me not want to return. Even though the service was fantastic and the food was very good. But get a treehouse and you'll be happy I'm sure.

Great jungle hideout! Highly recommend!
Lovely spot in the jungle! Highly recommend! Location is perfect we were able to walk to pidurangala for a sunset hike (literally around the corner) and then the next morning to sigiriya was about a half-mile walk down the road. Staff was super attentive! Stayed in one of the treehouses which I highly recommend-great glamping experience, not too buggy, great fans and mosquito nets, love the outdoor shower :) we didn’t see any-but apparently elephants and monkeys wander through the property regularly! Would definitely stay here again.

A good experience
We were very excited to stay in the jungle treehouse. The treehouse was exactly as advertised - it was spacious, it looked out onto the jungle, and there were no walls or sides. We felt like we were right in the middle of nature. There was a mosquito net around the bed and a nicely equipped bathroom downstairs. Overall, we are really glad that we had the experience of waking up in the jungle. We were told that the monkeys had learned how to open the fridge (!), But we didn’t have any trouble from the monkeys while we were there. We were also told that if we heard anything large moving around in the jungle at night to just stay upstairs :) The staff at the hotel were friendly and were able to offer useful advice about the local area. The hotel is a ten minute walk to Pidurangala rock and a ten minute tuk tuk (300lkr) to Sigiriya. The hotel is eco-friendly and provides clean drinking water on site where you can refill plastic bottles, which was good. However, there were a few small issues with organisation. For example, we realised after I stay that our booking included breakfast. However, we weren’t told about this while we were there and so we didn’t have breakfast; this was a little disappointing. We felt that the communication from the staff could have been a little better, especially for the high price. Overall though worthwhile if you want to be close to nature.
