If you are looking to stay in a different place Kumbukgaha in the middle of the jungle is the place. Confortable rooms with open air bathroom! Some funny small frogs can shop up! They have great typical food even if more variety would be appreciated. Nice swimming pool.

It had modern furniture, queen size bed and wash rooms was fully open to the sky and it was very clean inside-out however, no TV. It had solid fences all...

This really is in the middle of the wilderness and paddy fields. You most certainly feel "at one" with nature staying here. Well placed for visits to Sigiriya and Minneriya. The Villas are lovely. Food and service very good. Not really the best place for extended relaxation due to lack of the usual facilities you would expect "by the pool"....

We had a wonderful stay at this charming hotel. The service is impeccable from the kind and attentive staff, and the food was a delicious introduction to Sri Lankan cuisine! We greatly enjoyed making use of the swimming pool and watching the tropical thunderstorms across the fields was a truly magical experience. If you're looking for somewhere off the beaten...

We used this as our base while exploring Dambulla, Sigiriya and Pollonawura. Its in the country side away from the hustle. The villas are spacious and tastefully​ decorated, with private outdoor bathrooms. The pool area is a nice spot to relax. Peacocks and other birdlife abound.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for staying with us and for the lovely review.

The main cultural sites, the Sigiriya World Hertitage Site, Pidurangala rock and cave temple and the historic Dambulla Cave Temple are all a short drive away. The ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa are an hours drive away and are ideal for day excursions. The Minneriya National Park, famous for the 'gathering' of hundreds of elephants, is a short 30 min drive away and is perfect for an afternoon safari.
