Sigiriya Rock Gate Resort

Overnight in Sigiriya

Sigiriya Rock Gate Resort is owned and run by the nicest family. The husband and wife are so welcoming and accommodating. As soon my friend and I had been dropped off at the small, but recently updated, resort we were made to feel welcome and part of the family. The family served us a delicious fresh orange juice from the oranges in their trees. The room was beautifully done and immaculately clean. The air conditioning was a welcome relief after a long tuk tuk ride. We ate dinner there and the husband made the best chicken fried rice and kottu. Yummy! The location cannot be beat. It was about a ten minute walk to the rock, which is a perfect thing to do when you wake up in the morning. From the back yard, there is a gorgeous view of the two rocks. Lovely new place to stay near Sigiriya. The owner spoke enough English to be very helpful and arrange various programs in the area.

Camellia Resort and Spa

Lovely resort with excellent customer service

We were very please with our stay at Camelia. The hotel staff went above and beyond in providing us with exceptional service. One member in our party had severe food allergies and we communicated this to the chef. Every server in the dining area was made aware of this and they ensured that we were informed of any dishes that contained any of the food he was avoiding. The meals were delicious and was a lovely mix of local and international fare. Highly recommend checking out this hotel.
