The architecture is amazing. How the hotel is built so open and embraces the natural area. Makes you feel part of the jungle without interfering with it

This hotel is in a league of its own. Once you arrive you are greeted with a jaw-dropping setting in front of lake Kandalama that no video or photo can ever do justice. The entire property blends with nature, you are often greeted with langurs and monkeys and elephants might visit the nearby areas every now and then. There is even a sign at the beginning of the road to the hotel that warns that elephants might cross the path. The food is good, you can glance at Kandalama lake and even see Sigiriya rock during breakfast. The pools are located right in front of the gorgeous landscape. The staff is courteous and welcoming. Perfect score!

Rooms have luxury feel. Appreciate clean fluffy towels and floor towels. Could do with rug next to bed. Very inconvenient electrical switches thru' headboard slats. No convenient square-pin plugs to charge mobile phones & laptops.

This is a lovely place to base while visiting the ancient cities. The staff are so friendly with very personal service - the buffet breakfast and dinners were amazing and the view over the lake was stunning. It is very isolated and not near to any shops or other restaurants but it has everything you need for a great stay.
