Pros: Good pool and restaurant.
7.9 Good
Pros: New hotel, very clean, beautiful entrance and Swimming pool Staff were very nice and kind, some stuff were forgotten in our room, they were quite fast getting back (1st night no towels, second night no refill of soap) Facilities are great with the pool and we took a massage, very good!
Cons: Disappointment was the location. We stayed 3 nights and we were isolated, nothing to see nor walk around once you are back to the hotel. But for 1 or 2 nights should be fine as the place is quiet. Last thing was the food. Again I think for 3 nights because of the location, we had to eat at the hotel, and honestly for this type of hotel food quality could be much better. And quality is one thing, but the rates applied were really too expensive. Some dish were invoices 2500/2700 Rp and were not nice. So my feeling is because we were “blocked” in the hotel, price applied were high because anyway you can’t go anywhere else. So effort on the food or price to be applied.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: It was in an isolated location. Full of mosquitos, rooms smelt dank and cupboards smelt of cockroaches. There was a frog in the bathroom. And when we decided to move somewhere else for the next 2 nights the hotel refused to refund the payment for the days we did not stay there. Terrible!

8.0 Excellent
Pros: We booked quite late and needed a triple and so took a basic triple, which for our purposes (cycle touring) were excellent, as the bikes were parked easily right in front of the room. I am sure, owing to the fittings and fixtures of the majority of the hotel that the newer rooms would be excellent and we were just in an older part. The breakfast was excellent, filling and homemade, delicious. The manager, a very nice man, made it a point to greet us personally and was friendly, informative and very genial. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone staying in this area. The location was superb for to visit Lion's Rock (a short walk away) and there are close by small shops and restaurants.

Cons: Well... In the end owner (Anura) overpriced me greatly for tuk-tuk rides to local places and to neighbor town and taxi ride to local sigirya airport. So, always negotiable price first!!! I was hoping owner (Anura) was honest man, but unfortunately not. For transportation I paid more than 100euros to him (23000lkr+3000lkr for room for 2 nights) - no way its reasonable price in Srilanka. Lesson learned: always negotiable price first. Also room looked dated and not so clean. Also be aware - anura homestay is really homestay, you will possibly sleep in room in middle of their house and will be affected by snoring from family members sleeping next door (I was). Also they dont in have any respect to guests - loud talking between family members starts early morning when guest possibly still wants to sleep... No wi-fi. In my room I even saw scorpion, which I managed to kill :( There was also ants, mosquitos and that sort of things.

Pros: This is your personalized private jungle experience, at the comfort of lavish accommodation which truly respects nature and the environment. We stayed in a private villas with a private pools - it was an amazing getaway, so quite, so peaceful, and the rooms had so much to offer in terms of comfort and amenities. Breakfast was delivered to my room at my own request and personalized menu. A highlight of your day would be encountering those abundant jungle birds and critters, watching the monkeys jump across tree branches, while enjoying the sizable infinity pool. The staff are incredibly polite and friendly. I wanted to share my special thanks to Mr. Rawan, who made my stay extra special.
