Excellent location for visiting Dambulla, Sigiriya and Pidurangala. The hotel arranged our visit to Pidurangala to watch the sun rise and it was spectacular. Guide/driver knew what he was doing and where he was going, got us all to the top of the mountain and then over to Sigiriya, brought us back when done. (Breakfast packet was OK, nothing special.)...

It was the pool which attracted us to this place first, as we wanted a place where we could be refreshed and relax before tackling Sigiriya. So glad we did. The room was very comfortable, clean and the dinners and breakfasts were delicious. Loved the pool. The water pressure in the bathroom could have been better but not really a...

Great location just a short walk from the caves and the garden and pool and bar were fun. Big call out to the Dutch barman (awesome cocktails) and the rest of the staff who were ultra friendly. We paid...

Nice 'hippie style' place just 5 minutes walking distance from Dambulla temple. Rooms are spacious and decently furnished. Staff is very welcoming and ready to assist for any request. Nice garden with pool and bar serving amazing cocktails made of fresh fruits. Very good driving service is provided for visits to the cultural triangle or drop off to other cities/airport....

Upon our arrival, we had to pay upfront and found out that the room charge was almost double after some "taxes" . We did not experience this again in any of the hotels we stayed at. They definately over charge you and get away with it. Be careful!! The rooms were good and the pool bar was very good. The...

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas and had such a good time. The staff are so helpful and friendly. They genuinely want you to have the best stay possible. Great vibes and music around the pool bar and the bartender makes a mean passion fruit mojito. Thanks so much to Damien and his team!
