        Everything about the hotel was wonderful! Primali and the other staff went above and beyond for us. We decided to rescue a street dog we befriended in Arugam Bay. They helped us make numerous calls to arrange everything. They also surprised my wife at dinner with a cake for her birthday!

        Amazing Place!”
        We stayed there for just one night on our way to another destination. We loved the place! The hospitality is amazing the staff is wonderful. The check-in was a breeze and so was the check-out. We felt welcome the moment we entered the place, Suranga the Front Manager was really nice and made our stay extra special. He went out of the way to make us feel welcome. The open space and the infinity pool with Sigiriya and Pidurangala in the background was a pleasant view. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the toilets were well designed. The food was great with plenty of choice. The service was great, the plate went away when done and not before, which is great cause most of the time the service is too much or too little in many places. The F&B manager was very kind and made sure that guests were well served and satisfied. The grounds were well maintained and great for a morning stroll. You may even bump into a peacock and some other wildlife. The pool was great too.

        Beyond excellence ”
        ONE OF OUR BEST STAYS FILLED WITH SURPRISES. We are well travelled, but Aliya has surprised us FIRST will a generous free upgrade from deluxe room to deluxe Suite - overjoyed with our private pool and four-poster bed with jacuzzi. SECOND we booked the Sri Lanka restaurant, which made in very traditional way (firewood and clay pot only), set in a semi-outdoor environment, and the lady chef and waiter were so very friendly and enthusiast of their place, THIRD the spa is set at a very very relaxing ambience, private room and peaceful. FOURTH even the in room sandwich breakfast we ordered was flawless. Every arrangement at Aliya was seamless and we had a very very happy stay there. Thank you so much!

Buffet meals were plentiful and very tasty. We recommend the heritage Sri Lankan special meal. It was delicious and amazing to see all the dishes laid out and explained.

        An amazing hotel with a stunning pool”
        The design of this new hotel is stunning from when you first enter. It has a panoramic view of Sigiriya and Pidurangala Rock and a raised infinity pool. Lovely to watch the sunrise and take a swim with the sounds of nature. The grounds are beautiful and the smell of jasmine was lovely on my early morning stroll. Generous rooms with super soft pillows and the option to soak in a bathtub was perfect. Great service and a relaxing luxurious stay.

        Stayed here during a West to east trip of SriLanka. Stunning setting with lion rock backdrop. Good location for safari parks and to climb the rock(s). It was very quiet when we were there and as such only a la carte was available, no buffet. Tasty, but limited.

        Nature in room”
        Everything is good except that all the hotel rooms are dispersed over small, 2-storey buildings a large field, with window louvres in the bathroom, so there are many critters in the room (we had lizards, a frog, and several bugs of various sizes in the two nights we were there). Charming if you like them and quite scary if you don't (especially at night going to the bathroom).

        Does the job but out of the way”
        We had an OK stay at Aliya Resort and Spa. Bit disappointed as we'd booked for our honeymoon which I put into the request and we were given room one which is next to the carpark and lobby. This meant we could hear everything, including the disco well into the night. It's a bit of a drive from everything too, you'll need a tuktuk or driver to get anywhere, including lunch. But if you like to flop and drop, then Aliya is for you. Huge buffet selection for breakfast and amazing pool. Plus, the yoga is great! We loved the instructor who challenged us and started the day with positivity. Overall, we liked it but next time, would stay closer to town and somewhere smaller. Both nights we were there the rest had massive groups come in which wasn't peaceful at all. But that's resorts for you.

        Stunning - a contemporary design mixed with the best of traditional Sri Lanka ”
        The architecture and design of the hotel rooms, main building and whole site is well thought through and stunning in its layout. It combines the best of contemporary with the best of Sri Lanka, effortlessly managing to capture the two in one hotel. The main building is modern but it does not lose sight of the most important aspects. The Spa is a traditional Sri Lankan building, as is the Sri Lankan 5 course tasting menu, some accommodation features luxury wooden huts, fully air-conditioned in something unique and different. The best way to sum up this place is the view as you reach the reception area and overlooks the stunning pool with the clearest and most scenic view of Sigiriya Rock.

        Two things sold us on Aliya -- the pool, which is as pictured in the photos, and our beautifully done safari tent. The service was good, and the breakfast especially good. This is a great location from which to make the trip to Sigiriya rock and Polonnaruwa and then onto Dambulla.

        The tent house is a very interesting design. We can see the sun rise and sun set at the swimming pool. The buffet is delicious. It is suitable for travel with rent car as the place is not in down town. You can enjoy the relaxation and lion rock. Hotel Service is good. Highly recommend to stay in this hotel.

        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.
