Everything was great except for the dining and wining options. This is a great place for some secluded R&R with your significant other/ honeymoon and would be made all the more better if there were options for better food and a bar.

      Acceptable”
      Ants in the room, the butter had been left out in the heat and refrigerated. The staff said that the power blackout caused it but it just made me think what else in the fridge that they served us had spoiled and what prevented them from buying more butter given the price they were charging. The pool had clearly visible microorganisms swimming in it so I decided against using it.

      In need of some renovations”
      The Chalets themselves are comfortable and clean, with recently renovated bathrooms. The hotel was quiet when we were there - only one other couple. All of the decking around the hotel is rotting and in need of repairs. Boards have been placed over the worse parts, but it didn't seem overly safe in some areas. The Staff at the hotel and the food really save the place. They are attentive and accommodating. The food is excellent.

      Really nice and stylish Boutique Hotel with only 6 Chalets which makes the entire stay really unique and intime. Really nice food and amazing staff! The infinity Pool is highly enjoyable and the calmness is an absolute cure after busy sightseeing trips in Sigiriya and Dambulla. Occasionally there are minor issues with the electricity due to the location on top of a small hill with spectacular views and no direct connection to electric wires. However not a big thing.

      Chalets are along a boardwalk from the reception/restaurant/pool area and consist of a spacious room with sitting area and bathroom and private outside area. Clean and very comfortable. Food is good and staff friendly. We had a 5.30am start and they were waiting to take our luggage and give us a packed breakfast. Quiet location outside town. Would recommend

      The room itself is lovely and is away from the main area so is peaceful (but expensive to get to). The swimming pool really needed someone to pick all the leaves out of it.

      Superb kind helpful staff and an idyllic location.”
      Our daughter took ill and needed hospital treatment. The security staff and manager went above and beyond. Tuktuk to the nearest hospital. Sahrat the driver stayed with us through the night helping with language barriers at times we needed clearer information. Joel the Manager was incredible. Visiting several times over the 12 hours arranging food water and assisting on all medical questions and discharging early to transfer her to a private hospital. I can't speak higher of the Dambale staff. Medical insurance is a must in Sri Lanka. Without the help of these guys our daughters kidney infection (who is fine now) could have been life threatening. They are truly exceptional people and now friends! The hotel is simply beautiful. A 5 star "must stay" in Dambulla.

      Absolutely Superb Place in Dambulla”
      This place is an absolute gem. I loved the place so much (so much of regret for only staying one night here) that I decided to check out later in the morning instead of leaving early as previously planned. The villa was excellent, super spacious with all the amenities that you need. The view from the room was beyond amazing, the greens and the sunset brilliant. Food at the restaurant is awesome, while the service from the staff outstanding. Absolutely loved this place, and will be back to stay a few more nights in the future.

      My best hotel in Sri Lanka”
      I did not expected such a nice cottage style hotel in Sri Lanka. Guest can keep peaceful privacy. I felt like staying own second house in Sri Lanka. I had great stays there, love the pool as well as nice interior of the cottage. Staff is always provide best service, kind hospitality I received. I already recommended several friends who is thinking to visit Sri Lanka. I strongly recommend this hotel to people who seek real free, relax time. To be honest, if it is allowed, I do not want to expand information of this hotel to too many people since I want to keep this best hotel as my secret relax place in Sri Lanka.

      Terrific Hotel”
      The hotel stay was absolutely terrific. The staff was incredibly friendly and helped us out with everything we needed. The bathroom had some black ants, but that was easily taken care of quickly. Only issue that we had at all was getting in because we were arriving at night and the roads were under construction. A quick call to the hotel and they even sent out a motorcycle to help guide our driver there. Highly recommend this place!

      Rather new, well managed family hotel. Good food. Desription of room, however, was not correct. Very small room without any desk, chair and table. When questioned tthe staff said you can sit outside, which is impossible after dark because ogf mosquitos. If you accept this it´s good value for money.

      pool, cleaniness, quietness
      if you're looking for a stay in a peaceful location in cultural triangle near dambulla's golden temple and sigiriya's lion rock, then this is the place to stay at. the staff was very friendly and welcoming and organised a great one day tuktuk driver to take us to the temple and lion rock plus a driver to take us to our next stop in colombo too. the rooms and the resort is very clean. the location is slightly remote so not necessary walkable from the main road which is also why the surroundings are very beautiful and calm.
