We got a room of sigiriya wing. The view would be better at dambula wing. There was a musty odor in the room.

This place is meant to be an architectural wonder - and if you like miles of black marble, reinforced concrete and metal pillars it is. But it’s not my bag. However the setting is lovely, the staff are wonderful attentive kind and fun - and the food is AMAZING.
