Concept and Design Embracing one of Sri Lanka's most beloved animals, the elephant ('Aliya' in Sinhala), the Aliya Resort & Spa is set in the lush forests where elephants roam free. An artful blend of contemporary architecture and the minimalistic style with an authentic Sri Lankan touch, the resort aims to provide the distinctive experience of a villager's uncomplicated lifestyle. Location - Sigiriya, Sri Lanka Accommodation Each chalet's chic yet simple structural design has been carefully planned to blend in with its natural surrounding and have been built to comply with green building guidelines on energy and environment. The resort consists of 96 rooms that come equipped with all modern comforts, illustrating a discreet opulence. These rooms have been uniquely designed with the colours and motifs of Sri Lankan batik with themes mostly inspired by the elephant, giving them an artistic appeal. In addition to the chalets, the resort accommodate 18 spacious luxury tents.

At Aliya, it is difficult to comment….what is best….. is it the charming super nice staff?? Or is it the shady big trees? Or is it the delicious food ? Or may be the big comfy rooms…? May be it’s the huge pool with the view? Or may be the view of gently lighted walking paths at night….?? I don’t know the answer, I have to visit again and again to find out! Thank you very much for the great service! තෙරුවන් සරණයි!!!

Starting from the welcome to the end of my 14 days quarantine stay, the staff were very helpful and super hospitable. Highly recommend the staff and the resort including the restaurant and health team as well. Truly appreciate with love. There was a variety of food provided over the 14 days and I’m really happy with the content. Food was delicious. According to quarantine rules and regulation we were not allowed to go out. However, I must say my stay at Aliya was very pleasant and the room was extremely relaxing with wonderful calm view. I never had a bored or stressed feeling. All my requirements were provided as soon as I called. Wish if the WiFi was little more stable as I was working, I had to face few issues. But they took action as soon as we informed. Hoping to visit Aliya Resort again with so much of pleasure. Thank you so much to everyone who has done a great job during this quarantine period. Many thanks

I was in Aliya Resort for my quarantine period of 7 days. I was welcomed by Mr Indronil... i was alone but Mr Indronil and Mr Suranga made me feel comfortable . Room was excellent in ambience of nature... i still remember my morning used to start with chirping of birds... peacocks squawk ...monkey coming to my rooms balcony .... i never felt lonely or alone during my quarantine. Chef Upul used to serve me yummy meals ....everyday he used to call and ask my preference and my choice for food... chef upul and restaurant staff took all efforts to delivery hot and yummy food on time.... very friendly staff and always ready to help me... I want to come back to this resort with my family and want my family to experience royal hospitality of this resort . I want to thank each member of staff for making my quarantine period a pleasant relaxed stay. Special thanks to chef Upul !!!

We were there for two nights during the month of July 2018. The hotel was so nice and it has a huge garden. Swimming pool of the hotel located with the scenic view of Sigiriya, Sri Lanka. Rooms were very spacious and equipped with all the modern amenities. Food was delicious and worth for the money spent. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Highly recommended.
