We wanted to visit the places around Dambulla and narrowed down to this resort and should so that we were really impressed. Amazing staff, rooms, food and service. Being vegetarian we had doubts about the food that we would get but should specify in particular on the food that we were served. Loved it and highly recommend this resort

We stayed here 2 nights during our trip around Sri Lanka and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our rooms were beautiful! Really spacious, large comfortable beds, huge bathroom, very clean, great air-con, lovely balcony. The hotel grounds were really cool - almost like being in the jungle and there is a great pool (which we didn't get time to use). The buffet...

One other gripe was that I burned my hand on the kettle as the plug socket malfunctioned and wouldn't turn off the kettle. We then tried...

Excellent hotel with clean and spacious rooms. Good buffet selection for breakfast and dinner. The spa was also a welcome addition after a full day of climbing up steps and walking around in the heat. The pool area was lovely to relax and catch some sun. The location is not in a town or near to anything. But as there...

Amazing, spacious rooms. Very neat and clean. Rooms are in two-floor blocks: we had a room on top floor and a balcony with lovely views of surrounding greenery. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice size pool but not enough sun loungers! Buffet breakfast and dinner is ok but overpriced. Set in very nice grounds but is a drive down a...

We are just after spending a wonderful holiday in this resort. The staff, the food, the accommodation and the attention to detail were second to none!
