"Monkeys climbing balconies as if they were trees" is how this unbelievably lush cliff-side fortress hotel is described. Built overlooking the eighth wonder of the world - the rock fortress of Sigiriya. This stunning spot sits in between five world heritage sites. It was constructed with a flat roof and timber pillars that support a screen of vegetation - attracting the most diverse of wildlife creatures. A truly one with nature escape.
Although this retreat is a hideaway, the activities are endless. Take a hot air balloon trip, a bird watching adventure, elephant rides, boat trips, heritage site visits, see cave temples, visit the national park or take a jungle trek. Explore the majestic beauty of Sri Lanka, it is a a place often overlooked - but one-of-a-kind.
