Hotel Sigiriya was amazing. Staff ,room,surroundings all great.”
From when you first enter staff make you feel so welcome. The are so warm and helpful. The resort is peaceful with wildlife all around you. The pool and facilities were great. Spacious modern clean rooms with a turn down bed service and a plate of chocolates each night. Breakfast so may choices.
Best place to stay in Sigirya”
Location: Excellent location, very close to the Sigirya rock fortress, musuem, Pidurangala rock etc, breathtaking views of the fortress from the hotel Rooms: We had booked 2 Superior King rooms. Spacious, comfortable, clean rooms and each room opened to a beautiful garden area. Pool: Clean and very well maintained. Amazing views of the fortress from the pool. You can also enjoy some drinks by the pool. The atmosphere at night by the pool and the restaurant was so amazing with some live music Food: Breakfast/Dinner buffet had huge spread with good number of vegetarian options. We didn't try the treetop, BBQ dinner options but they seemed good. Everything was very delicious, a lot of traditional Sri Lankan food to try. Spa: Spa Villa is smaller as compared to other places but the foot massage was great Staff: Very friendly, attentive and accommodating staff
Amazing view of the rock and superb breakfast buffet ! ”
We stayed two nights at the hotel and really liked it . The view of the rock from the bar and swimming pool is breathtaking and just like the photos . It’s especially stunning at sunset . The hotel itself is a little dated but it’s a lovely place to stay. The breakfast buffet is really outstanding with a huge selection and the restaurant staff are so friendly. The rooms are good but sometimes our hot water wasn’t so hot. The hotel is set in the middle of the jungle so there’s a lot of wildlife around and not a lot of sunlight but we really liked the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere ! It was my birthday when we were there and they allow you to take a bottle into the bar area for a small fee so it’s possible to drink your own bottle of bubbles looking at the rock which is really nice. It’s very conveniently located for seeing the sights in the area.
Perfect base in Sigiriya”
This was a lovely hotel, in an amazing location. It felt at one with it's location, with plenty of wildlife venturing into the resort. The room was clean and comfortable. The views were amazing of the rock, and the pool area was also very nice.
It is too expensive, not value for money”
The toilet is quite dirty and the room is quite small, if compare with the price that I have to pay . I booked the 1st night in other hotel next door, the room is cheaper, much nicer, bigger and cleaner. It is not worth it for money.
This is the best hotel I stayed on this paradise island. The location is good. I enjoyed the sunset of sigiriya rock so much. The room was tidy and breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend this hotel.
The view from the pool is amazing! Our room was spacious and clean. Feels a little dated (fridge & plumbing in the bathroom had small leaks, A/C unit is tired) but the space was overall very comfortable. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pool bar staff is awesome. I love the wood carved chess set available for guests to play. Lots of amenities offered (laundry, rental bikes, spa) but we did not take advantage. Breakfast was great but the rest of the food from the restaurant was sub-par. We ordered dinner one night and it was pretty awful. The location is a little far from the neighborhood restaurants but otherwise nice and peaceful. Overall we would recommend a stay here!
this hotel is by the far the best one i have stayed in ages. it far exceeded my expectations in everything. amazing food, service, spa treatments, location. great view of the rock from the swimming pool. u can also see the hotel from the top of the rock. we loved the ambiance of sigiriya. hotel is a bit dated but still clean and very good. swimming pools are great. amazing stay
Friendly staff and good location”
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is a little older than some, however has been well maintained, and is neat, clean and open. The bar area is good, great place to relax, enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the view of the rock. Is in excellent location for enjoying a few days and seeing the rock and other sights in the area - elephant safari, Dambulla temple, etc. Great breakfast selection!!
Great view, food could be improved”
The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The view of the Lion rock is obviously the highest selling point and it’s as striking in real life as it looks on pictures. However, the food was not as good as it should be. There was an ad for a barbecue night, so we rsvped but then turned out to be just a gas grill with very limited and basic options that did not taste good even though this was higher than the buffet.
Was told that the Hotel is full, and they 'upgrade' us to a room at their sister property Amaara Forest, which is 25 mins drive away! Although they offered us complimentary dinner, it took us more than an hour in total to get to Amaara Forest which is a deserted place. would have much prefered to get a room at Hotel Sigiriya.
great view, great food, excellent facilities, the location gives you the opportunity to explore the area, good support from the staff
Amazing location, however front desk staff were somewhat rude.”
The restaurant staff were awesome, however the front desk staff were not. They came off as rude and everytime we asked for help with a birding safari they would tell us to go find the person who did it, who we were never able to find.
Magic location amongst large trees with a stunning view of Lions Rock. Monkeys come in over the hotels roof to a large tree by the pool to feed every night which is special. Hotel a little bit tired but quite adequate. Breakfast is really good and staff are exceptional!!!
Fabulous Stay at Hotel Sigirya”
We spent 4 nights at Hotel Sigirya, & loved everything about our stay. The staff were ever so genuinely friendly & attentive, the location was perfect for visiting the main attractions (we even managed a day trip to Anuradhapura), the rooms were large & had everything we needed, the pool was really nice & the breakfasts & dinner (buffet & A' la carte) at the restaurant were delicious. We felt the bed & pillows weren't the most comfortable, the room needed a bit of a refresh & had limited natural light & the bathroom limited ventilation; but these minor issues didn't take away from our enjoyment of the hotel. Thank you for a really memorable stay!
Amazing service and views”
This place was well worth the money. We stayed two nights, three days, and it was fantastic. It's walking distance to Sigiriya park area, and there are some nice shops and restaurants just 10-15 minutes on foot. The breakfast was amazing, with fresh pancakes and omelettes made for us, and the coffee and juice (plus the tea) were fresh and delicious. Felt like a 5-star resort through and through. Great place for families and couples for sure.
Outstanding - very impressed”
Pros as above. Food, especially the buffet, was absolutely incredible for being the middle of nowhere in Sri Lanka - 5 stars. Cons: Lots of bugs in the room, despite it being clean, but I guess it's in the middle of the jungle. Tour prices at hotel were quite expensive. No wifi in rooms!! Wifi in lobby was mostly okay, but sometime down... and there were lots of bugs in the lobby biting people.
great place to rest before climbing the sigiriya”
the bed is comfortable.can get good rest before heading to sigiriya rock! it is near the rock and it only takes 5 to 10 min by car to reach the rock. better to reach there by 8 am or 8:30 am.. before the sun comes out...
A relaxing place after long travel from Colombo”
After a long car journey along road works, it was good to chill before hiking up Sigiriya Rock. Everything was fine at this hotel and service wasn't bad either. I would recommend it to other travellers.
Decent and Comfortable”
Room and bathroom were clean, staff were pleasant, dinner and breakfast at the restaurant exceeded expectations for Sri Lanka. Would be nice to have a mosquito net for the bed as location of hotel is next to nature. Proximity and view of Sigiriya from the pool was awesome. Drinks at the lounge offered great view as well as it is facing the pool. Tried one of the cocktails, something with passionfruit, pineapple and gin and it was lovely. Honestly, can't complain!
