Aliya is a beautiful place with great eco friendly design and beautiful view of sigiriya rock.. It is situated in habarana and about 15 km away from sigiriya town. I loved the overall set up of the place but special mention to the reception, the swimming pool area and the rooms. Restaurant is good but with limited choices for dinner option. Breakfast was pretty good and they packed us picnic breakfast on the day we had to check out early.
Service was good but language seems to be a problem.
My only suggestion will be to have a alternative mode of transport inside the resort for invalid and old. Rooms are very well spread out and walking to and fro can be a problem ( I had sprained my leg in sigiriya and had a tough time walking around the resort :-))
