Vil Uyana is a unique individual chalet type Hotel built with minimum intervention with the surroundings. The agricultural village elements have been skillfully incorporated into a luxury hotel. The abundant bird life and other animals grab ones attention instantly. The time we visited some of the internal lakes were not full but one can imagine the designers dream of creating a unique Resort. we spotted many peacocks, giant squirrels, jungle fowl and a host of other animals. Birdsong is best in the early hours of the day. Food and service are at a very high level. We enjoyed staying at one of the Plunge pool villas. We will surely return when the lakes are full

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on TripAdvisor, and we were touched by your kind words of appreciation and recommendation.

We were glad to hear you were pleased with the services and facilities of our hotel and that your stay was a comfortable one.

We are definitely different to most other hotels because of our unique concept and the features of the property. Indeed this is an amazing hotel, as we are built in a manmade eco-reserve and the environment has been well settled for the bird life, butterflies, dragonflies.

It will always be a pleasure to welcome you back and we do hope to make all your stays memorable and fulfilling.

Once again, thank you for your visit and feedback, and please do let me know of any assistance that I may be of personally, in future.


Ayubowan! (May you live long)

The huge compound is absolutely gorgeous. The golf cart you around the property. Upon entering the stunning lobby, you'll see how incredibly clever every design feature is and the thought and care that went into the details of entire hotel.

My room, a private "hut" built on stilts over the water, was magnificent. Huge in scope, again, the detailing was remarkable. Whoever designed this place was an artist. The bed was so comfy, covered in mosquito netting, the teak floor that went on forever, the incredible rain shower with a window above, the enormous bathtub, everything. Not a single flaw.

The restaurant served nothing but delicious food. Every meal.

The staff was friendly, helpful, and always right there when needed.

There is an incredibly indoor/outdoor library, as well.

In fact, the entire play between what is indoors and out is themed throughout the property.

I wish I could live here. Seriously. Treat yourself.

Room Tip: I loved the water room.

Located around 10 mins drive from Sigiriya, the hotel is set in some old rice fields with lakes and many grassy areas. Boardwalk access to the villas as the fields are flooded during rainy season.

Villas are spacious and very private, furnished in a local style. Each has a private plunge pool and balcony where you can watch the wildlife, from peacocks to massive fruit bats.

A communal pool, by reception is not massive but more than adequate with a nice view over the lagoon and the local crocs :-)

We paid for half board and the food was superb. 7 courses (if you include amuse Bouches) each night with a good selection of fish and meat. Nothing is too much trouble for the restaurant staff, even tailoring some dishes to suit our family as I am the only fish eater.

All in all, thoroughly recommended.

The location of this hotel is simply stunning. You are right in the middle of nature, and it is very tranquil.

The staff are friendly and helpful (to the extent they can be, in some cases) but service can be a little mixed. Breakfast one day was terribly slow.

We enjoyed the food very much. The menu varied each day but a word of caution - do check on the level of spice.

The rooms themselves are lovely, but for a 5 star hotel there was a tiny wardrobe.

We would definitely go back.
