I planned my trip to Sri Lanka to stay in the Jet wings, Vil Uyana property and they did not let me down!
It was an extra ordinary experience to stay there. They have built the stilt cottages very tastefully and thoughtfully. Every little thing spoke about the effort gone into it. The most important of all was, it was eco friendly in true sense of the term.

The staff was over courteous and friendly. The chef cooked awesome food. The masseurs(speacially a girl called Chamini) were experts. We went for a bird watching tour, it was an amazing experience. In an hour we spotted more than 27 different species!

The manager, Ms.Priyanthika, took personal care of us and that was really very lovely of her.

Its an ideal holiday spot if you are looking for a peaceful one..if you want to be on your own and write to your heart's delight... if you want to spend precious time with your spouse/partner or loved one...this is the place!

I will plan a trip again...very soon, i guess...

Room Tip: the forest stay is the best!

Vil Uyana is perfect if you want somewhere quiet and relaxing. We stayed here for three nights and it was perfect. The staff go over and above, the setting is breathtaking, the rooms are beautiful and very comfortable and the food is delicious. If you want something upbeat this isn't the place but if you are a couple in need of unwinding like we were then it's just bliss. If you stay here make an effort to climb Sigirya rock because the views of Sri Lanka are amazing, also try the Jeep Safari, you get so close to the elephants, and sometimes you get chased which I found frightening but if you asked my husband he'd say it was the best part of our trip!

We stayed at the Vil Uyana for three nights and loved our spacious private villa so much that we even extended our stay by another night! The cottages are huge...luxurious and rustic at the same time! We even loved our little private plunge pool ! The hotel has a lovely library by the stream..where we wud just sit and gaze at the water ...soak in the silence and enjoy a lovely cup of tea :) The restaurant served amazing sri lankan food! We totally loved being there and would definitely love to go back :)

I don't understand the previous negative review's this place is fantastic. On arrival we were upgraded to a forest dwelling which was absolutely stunning
Everything was first class....No it wasn't cheap but was worth every penny and yes i would do it again
This is by far the best place to stay in Sigiriya

This hotel is very different from any place i have ever stayed in. We had a marsh hut which was huge and very private. We didn't have our own plunge pool but the main infinity pool took care of that need. We stayed here 2 nights and I was happy that we took the extra night as you will want to spend some time here enjoying how close to nature you are. I loved our walks to dinner as it was so quiet and peaceful. We saw peacocks and monkeys on the grounds while walking to reception. the view from our patio instantly took away the stresses from home. The meals were top notch as was the service. We did sightseeing during the day but always loved coming back to our hotel a little early. We were here for our honeymoon and this place was perfect for it. As others have said, the inside of the rooms are without much character but the surroundings totally make up for it. The layout is amazing and the ambiance here is off the chart.
