Hotel Sigiriya

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 1, 2004

The rooms are arranged in discrete rows along tree-covered courtyards. Simple and gracious, the unpretentious establishment lets nature work its charm on you. All rooms are the same: air conditioned, comfortable and inviting, in a homely fashion.

The lovely open restaurant and the lobby lead to the swimming pool in the garden (with baby pool). From here you get a direct and open view of the great rock.

You can visit Dambulla, Anuradhapura or Polonnaruwa on day-trips. You can also hire a bicycle from the hotel and tour through the surrounding farming villages on your own or take the hotel's village tour. The hotel offers two safaris, one on elephant back to nearby jungles, and the other on jeep to the Minneriya National Park. Near the hotel lobby you will find a detailed map of elephant sightings.

Meals are either à la carte, set menu or buffet, with a vegetarian menu on request. Sometimes a traditional Sri Lankan dinner is served in a courtyard designed as a typical village. Sometimes too there's a barbecue in a jungle patch beside the pool. Both these places have raised thatched platforms where musicians play traditional instruments during dinner. In the evenings there's a multi-media presentation in the lobby about the Rock, wild life and tourism in Sri Lanka.

The rooms in the Hotel Sigiriya may be quite basic but the views from the bar and restaurant are simply amazing. You can float in the pool and stare at the Lion Rock towering majestically above you.
We stayed for 3 nights on a half-board basis and were not disappointed. The rooms are, as I said, basic. There wasn't an awful lot of space to store clothes and, apart from the bed, nowhere to really sit and relax. Mind you we spent most evenings in the bar and restaurant relaxing as dusk fell.
The evening meals were a mixture of Western and Sri Lanka cuisine. Great currys, particulary for vegetarians.

Unique Quality: In the evening, as dusk fell, a flautist played music. Listening to the music under the shadow of the Lion Rock was magical.
The hotel can arrange for elephant rides, bird-watching and massages (my husband had one and asures me it was very good).
A group of monkeys live in the hotel grounds and come out in late afternoon to run around and try to drink the water in the swimming pool!
