“Heavenly Oasis in Sigiriya”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

A hotel with relaxed understated charm. Rooms comfortable and well used, (perhaps slightly shabby!) hot water intermittent, and air conditioning on permanent fridge temperature, but none of that mattered as the food, ambience, and pool second to none. Stayed there for 3 nights as part of a tour. The view of Sigiriya rock amazing, and a fantastic base to enjoy the surrounding area.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Very nice and calm hotel. Pool has a beautiful view of Sigiriya rock. Food was good and buffet had many choices. Staff were friendly and supportive. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean. Hope to visit again.

The view from the pool is great. The breakfast buffet had a good variety. Dinner was adequate, the mains were good but the deserts were a little disappointing for the children. Wifi is not available in the rooms, so you have to go to the lounge area to access them.
Very close to Lion Rock Fortress.

We only stayed here one night, but what a great night it was! This hotel has an absolutely stunning view of Sigirya Rock from the lounge bar area, which makes it great location for an easy visit too. This alone made the hotel great in my opinion. Alongside this, the rooms were extremely clean, well decorated and stocked up with the necessities such as toiletries and water. The staff were very hospitable; we were greeted with a cocktail on arrival (although, this is the general etiquette in Sri Lanka) and they very politely carried our bags to and from the rooms. The breakfast was a buffet style, with chefs that would make others foods on request.
This is a very calming hotel - would definitely recommend if that is what you desired!

I see one or two others didn't enjoy their experience. We did ... in spades. I and my boys thought this place was the dog's bollox. My wife preferred the Havelock in Colombo or the Palm Villa in Marissa, but she is very oldy-worldly. This was the kind of luxury I could get used to. The view of the rock was inspiring and the bar/pool area was laid out beautifully with everything looking towards the pool and Sirigiya Rock. I thought the restaurant was a veritable smorgasbord of delights. But tucked away near the back is an Ayurvedic spa, where an hours whole body massage cost about £20. This is one of the best massages I have ever had. Magic.

Booked this hotel for 2 notes, only stayed 1. Tired hotel, very expensive for what you get, rooms need a good makeover, reception boys need a good dose of manners, not enough pool lounges around the pool, only good thing about this hotel, is the food and the food staff. They actually were very, very attentive, maybe they could take over receptions job !

Stayed two nights for a staff outing.good hotel .out side the corridors you would be little worried until you enter the room though.room is big and clean .comfortable beds.clean bathroom. Good lay out of foods in the buffet. They will allow your stuff of spirits for a corkage. Discuss when booking. Staff friendly and helpful.they will arrange a Chena lunch at request. .you have to go to further down into the bush to access a hut where they call Chena. Don't waste your time for that.
