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.

Hotel Sigiriya

Only if you have to have a pool.

The hotel is a ways off from the main road. You're cut off from many restaurants and small shops, where the same items (water, beer, food) are half the price. There is a feeling of being in a compound. The place is single story with quite a bit of sprawl. Walking anywhere requires passing several meters of incarceration grade off white painted brick. You have to walk a bit to get a tuk tuk or have the front desk call, which can be a wait, or not be available at all. The general crowd is very quiet and it often feels like any sound you make is the only sound in the whole place. The main dining room is open air with a roof. Plenty of mosquitos. The food was not bad and the morning coffee was very good. Staff is generally attentive. The pool is a nice size but curiously, many of the green pool towels were heavily frayed. I stayed in 5 hotels during my trip. This was the only one I would never go back to. And two of them cost more than this place.
