We stayed 3 nights here and found Sigiriya to be a great base for Dambulla, Sigiriya rock, Polonnurawu and Minneriya national park with our driver. The hotel itself is in the heart of the jungle - surrounded by wildlife such as monkeys and lizards with the added bonus of a refreshing pool! Rooms are spacious and clean with large balcony's...

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and do not regret it. Although the bathroom is a bit damp and shows some signs of moist, this was the only drawback we could find (which is not too bad, after all you're in the middle of the forest). The swimming pool was nice and clean, there is a nice patio with...

We stayed at this place for 2 nights and had a great time. The room was clean and tidy with a/c and mosquito net. The bathroom was very luxurious and the pool was a nice addition to the stay. The restaurant is nice but not the best experience we had in Sri Lanka. Good wi-fi. We loved the nearby safari...

This resort is right in the middle of the Sri Lanka outback, so to speak, so it's pretty remote, but having a swim surrounded by highlands and listening to peacocks calling is quite an experience! A good place from which to get to Sigiriya Fortress as well. Service is excellent and rooms are lovely. I do recommend bug repellent if...

Good bed, bathroom and airco. Good food and very helpfull staff. A place where we feel sad when we have to leave.......

I spent one night here with a school group. I felt it was the nicest property we stayed at during our week in Sri Lanka. If visiting Sigiriya, this is the place to stay. Rooms were quite spacious and had aircon and a patio out front. The pool was beautiful and the restaurant was excellent. Wifi was available only in...

We stayed here since quiet and relaxing, and only a short walk to the Sigiriya World Heritage Site. The accommodation comprises a few separate buildings at the back, each with an upstairs and a downstairs en suite room which was reasonable and clean. After a hot day out it was great to have the pool for a swim or just...

Rooms are ok - spacious, but get very hot in the day and only a fan to cool down. There's building work happening at the moment to construct more rooms at the back, but you don't get too much noise. Places to eat within walking distance. Reasonably priced.
