"Luxury in a hotel that is integrated with its surroundings"
After a road trip along a long dirt road there is an amazing hotel integrated within a rocky hill. The rooms although a little outdated are comfortable. Views over the lake are spectacular. 3 pools. The buffet is extensive and there are several active chef stations. Excellent service. Recommend to friends.

Booked this hotel for two nights and arrived 7pm. On arrival they give you cold flannels and a welcome drink and you're taken to an outdoor seating area near the pool while they take your passports and check you in. We had booked a panoramic room. This was in the dambulla wing on the 5th floor. We were disappointed with the room. (530). When looking at the photos of the room on their website the panoramic room looked panoramic! However the room just had floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom and ensuite (exactly the same as the superior room which was cheaper). And just a view of the lake which was obstructed by trees. We weren't happy so asked for a better room which they said they would arrange for the following day as they had no availability for that night. We ended up having dinner in the a la carte restaurant. We had booked on a B&B basis. We looked at the buffet however the food did not look appealing and limited vegetarian choice (I'm vegetarian, my partner eats meat). The a la carte menu was also limited. My partner had the Sri Lanka rice and curry which was incredible - they bring you an array of curries, both veg and meat with condiments. I had a mushroom risotto which was mediocre. I ended up sharing my partners rice and curry as it was much tastier. The next day we asked to change the room and they moved us to a 'deluxe' room on the 4th floor, sigiriya wing and the view was just of trees! Unhappy again we asked to move which they were very accommodating to and moved us to the same room on the 5th floor (508) which was great albeit a little tired as other people have mentioned. The power tripped twice, second time at 3.45am as we woke to a very hot room as the AC and fan were not working. Someone came to sort it however they never managed to fix the AC. Breakfast was great which an excellent variety. The food at the poolside was so tasty! For the evening we ordered room service which had a much better variety and was cheaper than the buffet and a la carte menu. You really are living in the jungle, with monkeys eagles and bugs galore! I wish they showed you how the room worked - light switches etc as there are so many all over the room and we spent forever trying to figure it all out. Special mention to Nive who was welcoming, very pleasant and helpful with the room changes.
