Lakmini Lodge is a quiet and pleasant enough place in a town that is basically a collection of tourist services for the Sigiriya rock fortress (and in essence not really much of a town at all). For budget accomodation, the quality of the rooms was high, they were spotlessly clean, extremely quiet, and the "tree house" eating area was a...

Lakmini lodge was an amazing bungalow-style motel in Sigirya. Our stay there was a fantastic experience and the lodge offered unbeatable service.

New building is in construction, so more room, but more busy staff. Wifi was suppose to be on from 8am tout 10pm, but usually did notre work on...

The family who runs the Lakmini Lodge are such friendly and helpful people! On top of that, the price for the room is more than reasonable compared to other options in Sigiriya, AND the view of The Rock and the rice paddies from the garden behind the house is hard to top. The room we rented was simple but clean,...

I can definitely recommend this place. Friendly owner whose wife served us delicious rice & curry at night and a decent breakfast in the morning. Enjoying breakfast in the wood house in the back with a beautiful rock view was tremendous. Very helpful staff. Thanks for the good times.

A spectacular view of Sigriya rock across lush green rice paddies while eating a beautiful breakfast. One of the reasons to stay at this value for money guest house.

Spent two nights there because it was so quiet and nice. The owner is a joker and a really good guy. The view of Sigiria is unreal from the guest house. Only rice fields and the giant rock. Very affordable and a lucky find. Totally recommend this place!
