We spent our first two nights in Sri Lanka at this hotel and could have spent longer. It is a 4 hour drive from the airport so after a long flight is a bit of a trek and as we didn't land until late afternoon it was 21.00 by the time we got there. The accomodation is superb, we had a room over a paddy field, the restaurant is very good with a great view over the water and excellent food both in the evening and at breakfast - not buffet - this was the only hotel we stayed in that didn't and by far was the best food. The hotel is isolated so there is no where local to eat, I wouldn't recommend more than 3 nights here unless you want a really quiet holiday. It is ideally located for Sigiriya.
I cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel and of the four hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka this was the one I would definitely go back to.
We also stayed at - Chaaya Citadel, Kandy - Bentota Beach and Club Dolphin, Waikkal - all reviewed
We organised a driver for the first week of our stay and if you are looking for somebody to use please contact Sam (Thomas Samarakoon) - Sam Lanka Travel 0094 777 688 340 or google Sam Lanka travel. He is a fantastic guide with a great deal of knowledge about both the country and the wildlife.
He will also organise hotels if you need help - he did one hotel for us.
