Stayed here for one night to climb Sigirya rock which is very close by. We had read the reviews, and settled on the large tree house room which was comfortable and atmospheric. (I cannot comment on the other rooms available since I did not see them.) The pool area is in peaceful gardens, and the pool itself is clean and...

Visited the place with my 2 children,husband and I and we had made a booking on trible basis. From the time we got out of the car, the hotel entrance did not look appealing and as we walked in to the reception which adjoins the meal area we met 2 employees who were shabily dressed and did not seem very...

Dear Sumudu, doesn't seem like you have stopped tarnishing our brand after we had explained to you very clearly on the mails that you sent and you are repeating what your husband had mentioned under the name of JohnyC. You couldn't get the tree houses because we are fully booked and guests generally go on sight seeing in day time...

I cannot imagine how there are so many good reviews of this place. It is the most basic hotel that we as a family had ever visited. We had paid an advance and this too was not refunded althought we did not stay for more than 5 min. at this place as we realized what a big mistake we had...

02/04/17 - Thank you for feedback as any feedback is appreciated. But would have appreciated more if it was honest which in this case is sadly NOT. A lady inquired availability of room for 03 people. I offered a triple room with fans (Non A/C) and she said she preferred an A/C room.I offered her superior double room with extra...

Room is spacious, but no proper vanity table but instead a small glass table and a wall mirror. There's a small kitchenette with a sink as you go towards the bathroom. Bathroom is pretty spacious but not loving the grimy shower curtain and the shower that splashes everywhere because the shower ledge isn't totally separated from the toilet area. Not...

The people that own this place are wonderful and so are the ones working here. However, that does not compensate for the sheer lack of amenities and cost cutting measures employed throughout the property. The rooms are a paradise for mosquitos, there are no repellents that are available for plug in. The wifi does not work in the rooms and...

The best place during our stay in Sri Lanka. The most expensive as well. The host upgraded us in a family suite (3 rooms, 2 bathroom) which was very comfortable. No AC in the room (and the nights are hot!). The view from the first floor of the restaurant is amazing!! You can see the Sigiriya Rock. The garden is...

Beautiful place, with wonderful people and amazing food!!! The curry is a must. Not luxury, but we loved it. Short drive to Sigiriya rock and you can see it from the hotel. We definitely recommend it.

We stayed in one of the treehouses for a two night's stay whilst visiting the area. The owners were really sweet and the staff lovely. It was so nice to see staff who clearly liked their jobs and working with each other. The view from the treehouse was amazing and felt so relaxing sitting on the terrace. We swam in...

There are tree houses, padi fields, calling peacocks, lushness by the lake, a blue swimming pool, character rooms. But more than all this is the warmth and vitality of the hosts, their willingness to share this expanding project that includes serving some of the best food in Sri Lanka. That includes the wonderful rice porridge, made from the property's rice...
