After a hectic drive and Sigiriya rock climb, we couldn't ask for more. Comforting swimming pool (next to bar), massage for those who wished to indulge, lovely rooms (our rooms were upgraded to Delux) with Jaccuzi and all this in midst of their own plantations. Thilanka resorts serve you fruits and vegetables from own garden. Food is delicious whether you... More

What a great welcome and overall stay we experienced at the Thilanka Resort and Spa. From the moment we were collected by the rickshaw to our check out 7 days later, we were blown away by the service, the food, the rooms and the general ambience at this holiday retreat. The property is, in effect, a working farm where a... More

Thilanka Resort and Spa is a beautiful property, nestled amidst lovely green surroundings, where the resort grows their very own fruit and vegetables. The room was spacious and very comfortable and even had a balcony, from which you could enjoy the green views and birds chirping. The bathroom was a wonderful surprise...it came with a jacuzzi bathtub as an added... More

Got sick after staying here. It was a little dated I was not impressed for the price. The pool is nice. The service was fine. However it is better to look further up the road there are much better options near Sigiriya.

We'd read the reviews and asked to stay in this hotel for 3 nights during our tour. It started magically, transported through the lit up mango trees by tricycle and delivered to the lobby to receive our cool towel and welcome drink. The pool looked stunning, but it did strike me that it was placed there for stylistic, rather than... More

We were driven to the hotel reception in rickshaw. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom was very spacious. I would definitely visit this hotel again. There were loads of vegetable plantations on the way to the rooms. The pool over looks paddy fields.
