Paradise”

We loved this hotel, we booked and treated ourselves for a special birthday. I can not thank the staff enough they were wonderful and even bought me a cake with candles for my breakfast. The room was beautiful and sitting on the balcony just looking into the jungle was magical. Be aware though the monkeys are little terrors and leave nothing on your balcony or it will be gone ! Even the coffee cup. The pools were nice especially the infinity pool. The food was nice both dinner and breakfast. The only downside of food is that they don’t keep it heated so if using the outside area we asked them to put back in the grill to heat. We also thought the cocktails were pretty poor, in that class of hotel we did expect a little better but overall a fantastic experience.

Magical if you're ok with wildlife”

Absolutely loved the place, the only regret is not staying more than the 2 nights we booked (and we arrived at 5am on the first night) Buffet breakfast is fantastic, whatever you could imagine they had. We opted for the buffet dinner on the first night but there are 3 restaurants to choose from, which again didn't dissapoint! Expect European prices for the dinner, but the food was exquisite, especially the barbequed steak and fish! Room is amazing, from the amazingly friendly housekeeping, to the views and wildlife! The hotel is Huge! It's in the middle of the jungle so you get all that natural beauty to enjoy first hand, They have natural bee hives growing high up in the hallways as well as bats just roaming around. Plenty of lizards and gecko's, ironically none ventured into our room when we stayed, just make sure you keep the windows closed as there are monkeys roaming around as well...and if you're lucky you'll experience mongooses and porcupines as well! If you don't mind the bugs, the shower windows open to get that outdoor jungle shower experience, and the in house body gel smelled amazing. Highly recommend the hotel, make sure it's the last one visiting on your trip though, everything else in comparison for us just wasn't as good! Couple of things to be aware of, the resort is in the middle of nowhere, 6 hours drive from Colombo airport and 45 mins to sigiriya... Tuktuks will pretty much charge double/triple and the transport from the hotel is quite pricey as well - I wouldn't let that put you off though, just budget accordingly or Google alternative transportation before getting there! Definitely going back at some point to experience more of the hotel including the onsite spa which we didn't have time for

You can have a rare, wonderful and amazing experience when you stay in this hotel. Staff people are very kind and gentle. Staff was saying the elephants came at the hotel's garden in this morning! I think it's rare but there are monkeys everyday.
