back to nature at quiet hotel
beautiful hotel in the middle of nowhere or it feels that way. it is very serene and quiet - more a place for couples or families. rooms are spacious and food is really good. hotel staff is mostly new and learning. while they are friendly service is slooooow. breakfast can take 90 minutes and checkout 30. rooms are clean but there are gekkos and mini frogs everywhere. often menu (food and wine) choices are out of stock. also the bathrooms are huge but wide open so if someone is in the shower no one can use the sink or toilet without watching them bathe.

Grand, great views & good location
Lovely hotel with big rooms. The pool was nice too, located a short walk from the rooms and you can borrow cycles. Lovely view of Sigiriya rock too. The bar was a bit of a strange room with no atmosphere. It felt more like a waiting room. We had our drinks outside though so this was not a problem.

Great spot for some r&r. Service in restaurant a tad hit and miss. But all done with a smile. Rooms tired but great size and design. Fantastic bed and linen! Would stay here again.

Amazing hotel at Sigiriya.
Amazing hotel with expansive grounds and only 27 rooms/bungalows located in the wild with undisturbed terraces and all with own mini-pool. On-site organic garden, wildlife, beautiful landscape and a view of the Sigiriya Rock. Service was great, restaurant view amazing, food not bad. Nothing to complain about, really. Great for families! Hotel was not brand-new, but with a bit of charming patina while not feeling worn at all. Spa & fitness looked great, main pool was great, childrens pool was great and hotel staff always very attentive. We had nothing to complain about at all :-)
