“A chic small hotel set in a secluded rural spot near the Minneriya National Park. Private villas and bungalows are cleanly designed with high beamed ceilings, white-washed walls and traditional Asian artefacts. The open-air bathrooms add to the luxurious feel. A charming stay.”

Hotel Review

Peacocks wander through the gardens, fanning their magnificent tails, whilst rumours of passing elephants abound. Hotel highlights include big, beautiful bedrooms complete with cosy reading nooks and glorious open-air bathrooms — admire butterflies, geckos and little birds flitting in the trees framing your rain shower during the day and gaze up at the stars in the evening. Explore Minneriya National Park and the Dambulla Cave Temples, before clambering up world-famous Sigiriya — or its under-rated neighbour, Pidurangala Rock — at sunrise or sunset for striking views across the valley. Retreat to the hotel’s small pool for a lazy dip or curl up with a book on your private terrace in the afternoon. Dine on local specialities in the enormous beamed pavilion: the perfect perch for a peaceful evening in this gorgeous rural setting. An eco retreat to remember!
