We booked this hotel with a present given by colleagues at work. We wanted to start our Sri Lankan holiday not at the beach or Colombo, but immediately more inland in Sigiriya.
The hotel had to have a swimming pool to relax and get used to the climate coming from an European winter with freezing temperatures when we left. It had one, with a nice view on Sigiriya Rock and also a lot of birdlife in the garden. The pool had not a lot of beds but with the hotel mainly used with tourgroups with a very tight schedule there was always room whatever part of the day. The hotel is very well located and it is a nice walk to Sigiriya Rock, which is offcourse a higlight to any Sri Lankan trip. The grounds of the hotel are very nice with a lot of detail and nature surrounding it. A walk over the grounds and in the forest in the neighbourhood gives you allready a lot of opportunities to see some nice collorful birds such as paradise fly catchters, barbets, grey hornbill, orange minivet, ... The langur and macaque monkeys make you feel immediately far from home : Yes holiday has started !
The complex delivers : bungalowrooms are nicely spread out over the premises, large room and dito beds with a good matress, plenty of hot water to shower, a few stains in the bathrooms (yes this is a tropical climate), good restaurant were you can also have a la carte in stead of buffet.
