Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Athena Lake was the perfect stay during our time visiting the Sigiriya area. The staff was very attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast and dinner are in a beautiful setting, we felt very relaxed and absolutely loved the food! We actually think their Sri Lankan curry was the best we had! A lot of their produce is also grown in their own garden. Definitely a place to remember, thank you Athena Lake!

We stayed 2 nights @ Athena Lake Boutique Hotel while visiting Sigiriya & Dambula. The resort is very peaceful & the staff very attentive. It has a nice swimming pool & a lot of area around to walk. It has a lake on the property but was not accessible because it rained. The rooms are very spacious & a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The breakfast was nice with a mix of Continental & Sri Lankan fare. All in all a very nice hotel.

A truly amazing three nights stay at Athena Lake Boutique. Lovely surroundings and even more lovely staff at the hotel. You will experience Sri Lanka in the best way and being served delicious meals all through your stay. The personal will go that extra mile to make your stay as joyful as possible. We stayed here for during three nights and also celebrated New Year and can only give our best recommendations. On New Year's day, they showed us their tradition to do milkrice, which means that they boil rice and coconotmilk in a pot over open fire until it boild over. The second day, we went to Sigriya to climb and see the Lion Rock. Many thanks to all the wonderful people at Athena Lake for making our stay so remarkable. I hope to see you all again.

Beautifully maintained hotel with delicious food. It is located a short distance from Sigiriya. The staff is really super friendly, just like the owner. The WiFi is not very good and unfortunately we had a power failure in the middle of the night, which caused the air conditioning to fail. Of course they can't do anything about this themselves.

We stayed here for 4 nights and our overall experience was great! The staff was super friendly, the food was very good and also the room and the pool were clean and we felt comfortable all the time. Also, they are very flexible and adaptable as our daughter joined us spontanously on our last day and it was no problem to get an additional bed and the meals for her. We can highly recommend this quiet and beautiful place and if we come back to Sri Lanka one time we will definitely go there again.

Our one week holiday was amazingly spent. Thanks to Athena Lake Hotel for superb hospitality, relaxing environment, delicious meals and organized tour. I suggest to avail the customized tour package which the hotel offers to its guests because you will discover that Sri Lanka is a paradise in Indian Ocean. If you`d like to avail the hotel`s customized tour package, inform them at least two weeks in advance prior to the date of your stay.
