Sigiriya rock is one of the "must do" sights in Sri Lanka. This hotel is perfectly positioned as a luxury base. From the bar and pool you can gaze across the tree tops to the rock itself as it rises majestically out of the heavily wooded plain that surrounds it. There are also elephant "safaris" and other nature based activities nearby.
The hotel is of a very good standard. Typical of most Sri Lanka hotels the dining room provides a buffet, although a la carte is available (if you are prepared to wait). There was plenty of choice and the standard of all the food was excellent, with several options cooked fresh in front of you.
The public areas are open sided to allow the breezes through, and all furnishings etc have a quality feel. The pool is a reasonable size, including a slash pool for kids, but in common with most places that we stayed during our tour I felt that there were too few sunbeds, should everyone want one.
The rooms were of a good size, again with quality furnishings. The large bathroom had an excellent walk in shower with lashings of hot water. The air con was good (and quiet) and there was also a ceiling fan.
The staff were universally friendly and efficient. Everywhere was clean and tidy.
There is a pretty lake a few minutes walk away, again with scenic views of the rock across the other side; plus a small huddle of shops selling carvings and basic provisions.
Overall we were delighted with our 2 night stay here and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
