An excellent place to stay. Enjoyed a lot. Great and tasty food. Also the area is full of nice places to visit. There were big temples, historical places to visit. Also the big reservoir, Parakrama Samudraya was another nice place to visit.

Got to room to find that the side lights didn't work, fan had only one speed, and air conditioning gizmo didn't work. As they were planning a wedding, we were given free supper in an upstairs, characterless room. The buffet was worth what we paid for it! Not good. Some awful musicians playing. Breakfast was not much better.

A lovely hotel on the shore of a beautiful lake amongst palm trees. Nice hotel with helpful staff and great food and cocktails Big outdoor pool. Not in the center of Polonnaruwa, in a rather quiet neighbourhood.

We did a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka, and this hotel was easily our top favorite during out stay--our only regret being that we hadn't booked more than one night here. It was very unique--not your typical resort due to its attention to detail. It is well situated along the lake and right next to the magnificent Polonnaruwa ruins....

The hotel is very spacious and beautiful and was located ten minutes from the ancient ruins. The rooms were lovely and clean and had views of the Parakrama lake. The food at the restaurant was delicious and there was a wide variety. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, well mannered, and helpful and made our stay even better!...
