We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The bedrooms and bathrooms are enormous, very comfortable with lovely views. The hotel restaurant is on the 1st floor overlooking paddy fields and the pool, with a lovely breeze. The food was very good and the staff could not have done more to make us happy. The pool is large but not...

Our driver booked us to stay here for two nights. The hotel was super quiet when we got there so we had a large room close to the pool (which is large). Unfortunately as per other reviews the spa in the room was out of order. There was a few other issues such as the shower low on water and...

We liked that hotel very much. Very large room and a wonderful balcony so we could seat outside and see the birds outside, especially peacocks landing in the field in front of the balcony. Notice that walking to and from the room depends how far is your room from the center of the hotel. Food was ok and so was...

En route to this hotel we visited Dambulla Cave Temple. We had a very nice welcome to this hotel with cool drinks and cold towels. We were then taken to our chalet down a long path. The chalet was very comfortable but unfortunately we had a few electrical issues on arrival. After a quick phone call to reception our problems...

The first thing which we liked about this place are the ample mango trees and greens inside the Resort premises. The swimming pool starts right at the foyer/Reception area and the villa style buildings line the path parallel to the swimming pool. Each of these villas has 4 rooms, two in each floor… The rooms are really massive and comfortable....

Thilanka A beautiful hotel, fantastic staff however there is construction work going on at the moment but that does not affect the facilities or view. There are mango tree's so make sure you watch your head and dont get hit with one. Check in Arriving a lot earlier than the time to check in, we were warmly greeted by the...

We only stayed 1 night here but really enjoyed the calmness after a huge day climbing Lion Rock at Sigirya and visiting sights in and around Dambulla. The rooms are huge with a big bathroom and outdoor seating area that looks over rice fields. The bar and restaurant were excellent. The pool is just off the foyer and looks out...

This is the place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful place after visiting the surroundings. Very nice and helpful staff. Excellent pool for relaxing. Special thanks to the manager Vasantha who took time to show and explain this place with its ricefields and djungle. Sure I come back!
