Beautiful location, Poor hospitality
The place was really nice, perfect location, beautiful surroundings and great food. But very disappointed with the staff. I had already made the reservation 3weeks prior for a deluxe luxury tent and had already made the payment. But upon check in, we were escorted by a room boy, and we were told that there were no deluxe luxury tents available and we have to stay in a deluxe room since the tents were over booked! No one in the management actually had the courtesy to inform that to us upon check in. They never apologized for the error but very conveniently offered a free dinner, which we didn't need. We insisted we would want a refund if they are unable to give us a deluxe tent. Then they gave us a deluxe tent, (at the farthest end) which wasn't even cleaned properly(having dust on table tops) didn't have an iron and toiletries-toothbrushes(which we had to call and request). We were utterly inconvenienced and had a bad experience. Hope this won't happen again.

Need better training
We're now at another theme resort Maalu Maalu and the difference in service is considerable! The staff at Aliya need much much better training. Annoyances include ringing us at 11.15 to chase check out which is at 12 and very poor English. Despite being our honeymoon nothing special was done for us whereas at Maalu Maalu we had champagne on ice, decorated bed and ro and fruit platter. The hotel is lovely but the experience was ruined by poor service.

Silent and beautiful
The resort is a well maintained and designed property and tells a lot about the beauty of Sri Lanka. The food is exceptional. Especially the experience in the Lankan restaurant . Nowhere they demonstrate local food and spices so attentive as in the Aliya. Congratulation !

Nice hotel with the best view.
Very enjoyable and nice one night stay at the hotel. We opted for the tent and it was very specious and comfortable, surrounded by lush vegetation. Quite experience, I should say, very different from staying in the room. The view that unfolds at the reception on Sigiriya rock is just unbelievably beautiful. Hotel grounds were maintained beautifully as well and a big pool provided ample space to relax and was very rejuvenating after climbing the rock. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes away by car from the rock and Dambulla cave temple, which was no problem for us, since we traveled by car. We had a la carte brunch, which was quite disappointing, but for dinner, we opted for buffet, and it turned out to be very good, with a lot of choices and tasty Sri Lankan and European dishes.
