Amazing location and view

Posted Apr 14, 2018
Very welcoming staff who couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were comfortable with good air conditioning. Drinks are pricey in comparison to local rates. We had the buffet dinner which was very good and offered a huge range of food. Taxi fares are extortionate - we used the taxi service at the art gallery for exactly half the price.

Amazing place.

Posted Mar 7, 2018
Pros: The setting, the staff, the food - in short everything!
Cons: We were asked to complete a questionnaire when we left and neither my husband or I could think of anything they could improve
Location: Very near to the Sigiriya Rock. Easy access to village. Possible to take a village life safari. Well placed to visit highlights in Cultural Triangle.
We arrived early and were invited to sit by the pool looking up at the Sigiriya rock. The view is quite stunning. Hot towels and a cooling drink were provided while we waited a short time for our room to be completed. The hotel is situated a short walk outside of the village; a pleasant stroll in the daytime but probably best avoided when dark. It is situated in a very natural setting with wildlife in abundunce. We spotted a mongoose, land monitors, playful monkeys (jumping around on the roofs) and birds a plenty. The staff are friendly, professional and eager to please. The buffet amongst the best we have ever experienced, with a wide choice available at both breakfast and dinner. A la carte is also available if you don't feel that you can take full advantage of the copious fare available. Rooms were large and comfortable. All in all an amazing place.

Best view in Sigiriya

Posted Feb 2, 2018
Check in was smooth and easy while sitting looking at the Rock Fortress. We had a small issue with singles beds in our room but the staff quickly remedied this. Kitchen and bar staff were always friendly and attentive. We tried both ala crate and the buffet and all three of us agree the buffet is great. Location of this property is the best in Sigiriya and centrally located if you’re using the hotel as a home base. Highly recommend.

Resort Hotel with View of Sigiriya Rock Fortress

Posted Jan 25, 2018
Pros: Stunning Views!

Location: Easy access to the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
Comfortable, spacious rooms in a resort style setting. The large, well appointed hotel patio faces the pool with a stunning view of Sigiriya Rock Fortress.

Great location to view and explore the rock

Posted Jan 11, 2018 on Wotif
Pros: It’s proximity to the rock.
Cons: The food was disappointing.
Ours was a one night stay to explore and climb Sigiriya rock and also to visit the nearby Minneriya National Park where we had a wonderful ‘Jeep safari’ experience at late afternoon to see elephants in their natural habitat. Would highly recommend this activity. Although the queue of vehicles bustles and crawls to access the park, it eventually sorts itself out and once into the sanctuary the abundance of elephants we saw was worth it. However it is worth checking - we visited in the dry season in December, it probably varies depending on the time of year. The hotel is located close to the Sigiriya rock as seen in the photos and we found it more than adequate for the time of our stay. The room was large, clean and staff friendly and obliging. Evening meal - a la carte - was slow and rather disappointing. A buffet was available which may have been a better choice. Overall a well located hotel.

Dining with Monkeys and perfect view of Lions Rock

Posted Dec 23, 2017
Pros: Wild animals and views of Lions Rock
Great hotel, wild monkeys live in the area occasionally sleeping on the roof and always cheekily trying to steal some breakfast. Perfect view of the Lions Rock. Yummy buffet food for breakfast and dinner

Great base for Sigiriya

Posted Dec 21, 2017
The hotel is very good - our room was large and clean. The only disappointment is that I requested a double and got a twin room. Pool is the main attraction - it's great! If you don't want to eat exclusively at the hotel restaurant you will need to take a tuk tuk or similar to the local village. Overall it's a great spot to base yourself for exploring Sigiriya and surrounding attractions.

I'm coming back!

Posted Oct 30, 2017 on Hotels
Delightful ambience. The hotel is luxurious and the food is delicious. Wish we had more time to savour the hotel. we arrived late that night but revelled in the ambience of the hotel. The welcome drink was superb - exotic and refreshing. The room was lovely, spacious and had good amenities. Unfortunately, it was raining and we were near a garden so whenever we opened the door, we had insects in the room. But don't be put off by that. It was surely due to the downpour. The breakfast buffet was to-die-for.
