"This hotel is a legendary hotel in Sigiriya area, and most famous for its Sigiriya Rock view directly from its swimming pool. The Standard Room we stayed in is also nice, although it is quite obvious that certain parts of the room are aging and therefore require renovation. The bathroom is newly renovated, as it looks new and modern, with powerful shower and stable hot water. Guests who stay at this hotel most likely will need to have dinner at hotel, because there is virtually no good restaurant nearby as Sigiriya is a very small village. Food for both dinner and breakfast is very nice, with a great selection of both western and Sri Lankan food. We arrived very late in the afternoon, so we had little chance to spend time at the swimming pool that offers amazing view of the Sigiriya Rock. Therefore, it is advisable that those who would like to stay at this hotel to arrive around noon or early afternoon, and then spend the rest afternoon at their swimming pool. "

"We stayed at the hotel for two nights. Our intention was to have some rest in the interim of our trip in Sri Lanka. As we was on the car, we also used the hotel as a spot to visit Sigiriya and Dambulla cave temple. The hotel has the excellent location in the forest with the lake view, where we had an opportunity to see a magnificent sunshine. It is very eco-friendly and we met monkeys and bird nests on the territory. We had a panoramic lake-view room. It was clean, quite and had all necessary. The restaurant provides various European, Asian and Sri Lankan food, the quality and choice was really good. "

"We stayed for a night in order to go up Sigiriya very early in the morning, which it was perfect for as literally around the corner. Also right next to a whole strip of restaurants which was very convenient. It's beautifully decorated in colonial style. We booked it as was much cheaper than some other hotels in the area but honestly don't know why as really was lovely! Having since traveled around Sri Lanka it was one of our favourites & really think it needs to increase its price for what you get. Staff also very friendly. Note: you need to book driver accommodation in advance though as can be fully booked. Only downside is shower didn't drain well at all, but think this is something that they are working on. "

"We found a really good deal on Agoda which meant we were able to book in for 3 nights, we normally stick to more modest accommodation as we travel for longer periods (Sri Lanka for 3 weeks this trip) so we found this place to be absolute paradise. The location is perfect to visit the surrounding sights (Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwu) and the hotel itself has a beautiful setting on the lake, the grounds are great to walk around and relax in and the pool is nice also. We hired bikes for 300rps and cycled the lake which was lovely. We didn't have time to use the tennis or badminton but the facilities are of a very high standard. Food was good but not great and the prices were as we expected for this style of hotel, some good options though that would cater for most tastes. We booked our own tours out on the streets as the prices linked to the hotel were expensive. We've travelled the world a few times in many many countries but this hotel is in the top 3. That said we would never have come here at normal price!"

"This hotel had the best accommodation we stayed at during our two week tour in Sri Lanka. The hotel's setting with beautiful flowers and a lake and views of the Sigiriya rock is spectacular. The tastefully furnished individual bungalows offer privacy, and comfort. The staff were very helpful and the hotel offers various ayurvedic services, too. Dining was superb, great value for money. The local sights are 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel."

"The hotel is located in close proximity to Sigiriya and has two great national parks in close proximity to the hotel. The hotel compound is an older compound but was a very nice compound which gave you the feeling of tranquility and relaxation. All the rooms were nestled in a garden layout which plenty of trees and greenery. The hotel compound has wild monkeys and squirrels which were great past time entertainment. You can expect the rooms to be fairly large and very comfortable with all the modern amenities you would expect in a five star hotel. The main dining room only served buffets for all three meals. I found the food to be great but the eating three buffets was not my option even during a holiday. In Sri Lanka it seems to be the norm to eat late dinners which are heavy meals & this was not suited for my life style. The dinner buffet cost about US$25 per person and for a light eater dining out was the preferred option. Outside the hotel next to the elephant stand they had a nice restaurant “Habrana Inn” which served western and local cuisines. The staff at this hotel strived to provide great customer service and this hotel would rank high on my list of places in Sri Lanka. From the initial check in process to room cleaning, service at the dining room and the staff hospitality would rank this place as excellent. A special thanks to Mr Kusun and he is well aware of his trip advisor customers. If you have any issues refer to him and refer your affiliation to trip advisor. "

"We stayed here on our first night in Sri Lanka and after a long and hot day of travelling it was an absolute delight to be able to have our first night in such a lovely spot on the lake with lots of wildlife. We enjoyed the pool and the rooms were great with an enormous bed, seperate lounge area and big bathroom. We were exhausted so had room service for dinner which was tasty but could not compare to the amazing breakfast buffet. We stuck to the Sri Lankan food and it was a great introduction to the tasty food we had to look forward to during our trip. The location was perfect too as it was close to Dambulla and Sigiriya."

"When we went into the room it was WOW. Large, double spa bath, fruit platter, mini bar with complimentary soft drinks.... The Hotel is 9 months old and in the development phase with only 6 Bungalows. The Bungalows are on poles situated in a pond for cooling. The lobby is on the first floor of the central building with a stunning view of the lion rock and a pleaent constant cooling breeze. The staff are super helpful explaining to you everything about the food and Sri Lanka. The driver was happy with his accommodation and food as well. In all a very pleasant stay at excellent value for money."

"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. "
