“Great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Simple but effective room in beautiful setting and very close to Sigiriya Rock. Being an eco lodge you have to be at one with nature.....unfortunately, we were not that keen on having frogs in our room but we understand that comes with the surroundings.

Very pretty hotel in a great location, but we found the food a little bit bland.

One of the best locations on earth. Basic hotel but extremely nice. Loved it. Will definitely visit ot again. Would recommend it to both couples and families. View of Sigiriya rock during breakfast is breath taking.

This place has everything, and it then squanders it all away. Brilliant location. Beautifully spread property. Excellent huts. Right asthetics. And all that means they they less, not harder. The service quality is slack with a smile. The food - ah the food. Wh had two buffet means, and we could not believe how much good could be prepared how poorly. It was cold. It tasted terrible. The desserts were the cheapest quality. We asked for mangoes in dessert, to be told it was out of season. Whaaaaaat? You mean coated more than the cheap stuff lying on the table?

Sad. One night, and we were glad to be out.

Oh and I almost forgot. Snake on the htc chair outside the room, and the scorpion on the bed.

Good luck.

After reading great reviews about this hotel, we booked in to stay at this place for one night. Boy we were glad we had to stay just for one night!!!!!!!!!!
The room was filthy, dark, tasteless. Although we checked in as a couple, they gave us two double beds upon pointing this out the two beds were casually joined, with a large gap in between.
The beds were not that comfy either.
THERE WERE NO TEA OR COFFEE MAKING FACILITIES, FOR A SO CALLED 4 STAR HOTEL!!!!!
They charge you Rs 500 for coffee per person? what is happening with this hotel???????????

The buffet was very large spread and after a strenous climb up the Sigiriya Rock, we did not have the stomach to indulge in the buffet. we kindly enquired about the ala carte option. the manager said he would look some thing for us. for Rs 900 per person plus taxes, he gave us rice, 2 curries and coconut sambol from the buffet itself!!!!!!!! for a little extra we could have gone for the buffet it self.

The worst was yet to follow.....

After the sigiriya rock climb, we had really sweaty clothes. i wanted to pack those clothes in a bag for them to be washed at the next destination in colombo. I enquired if i could use the laundry bag. the staff told me the plastic bag was free but the cloth bag in room was chargeable at Rs 500, which by the way was not in my room on check in. After further confirmation about the free plastic bag, i decided to use it.
only upon check out, the guy asked me about the cloth bag, i tried to explain that there was no cloth bag in the room i stayed, the check out staff were adamant to check my baggage in the lobby!!!!!!!! i obliged and the guy standing next to me saw the plastic laundry cover in my baggage and insisted i give it back to the hotel. only for the other check out guy at reception to inform me that the plastic bag was free and he confirmed with his staff, that there was in fact no cloth bag in my room when i checked in.

Rather than first checking with the staff, this guy was keen to suspect the guests to this hotel and having to unpack my baggage in lobby was un acceptable.

Even after this no apology offerred for this unfortunate incident.

Do not stay at this over priced hotel, which do not even offer coffee or tea making facilities.

This is a very good hotel located in Sigiriya amid the trees and greenery. The property is well maintained, clean and is eco friendly. The hotel staff are very polite and friendly. The restaurant is very good. The buffet breakfast and dinner spread is very good and is nominal for a 4 star hotel. The hotel overlooks the Sigiriya rock with a nice view from the pool side. The stay is relaxing and very comfortable. Ideal for family stay.

On our pit stop, we decided to check into this hotel. My experience was tremendous.

The resort is located very close to the famous Sigiriya rock but has a few attractions of its own.
It is spread over a vast acreage and is amazing to have walks during the early mornings and evenings. They have individually spaced out row houses and villas, and each cluster of them have a attraction attached i.e. rice field in one place and a garden in the other.

The rooms are very cosy and nice, and the bathrooms stock the necessary toiletries of decent quality. The Porch has a lounger, to sit and read or relax.

The food at the restaurant is just about OK, with both a la carte and buffet on offer. The breakfast was ample and good in taste too. The best part of the evening was the Arrack cocktails we had at the bar. Made with fresh ingredients, they tasted like sweet nectar.

Overall, this place is a good option if you have Sigiriya on your itinerary and are also looking to spend a few ore days to unwind. It isn't too heavy on the pocket too.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, half board. Rooms were close to the main building. food was good and plentiful. we were unlucky to stay at the same time as a large party 40+ of Chinese, which the management catered for.( I would have done the same) But they were like locust when they attended the buffet and you can imagine how it looked after they had finished. The second night we made sure we got in first. I have nothing to complain about the hotel at all, so much so when they closed the bar area, we had a couple of quiet drinks with staff outside our rooms.
