Extremely family friendly (big rooms, plenty of space for extra bed/baby cot, they have high chairs and a kids pool), great food, lovely location. There are small creatures - frogs, lizards, monkeys etc. but this is all part of being in the forest and added to the experience, rooms were very clean.

In the sylvan setting of a tranquil atmosphere nestles Amaara Forest Hotel Sigiriya ideal for getting away from crowded city life. We spent two nights at Hotel Amaara and had a comfortable stay. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and well-maintained. The villas with balconies overlooking the greenery around, provide a pleasant, refreshing view of nature. At night the pathways are illuminated with a stretch of lamps leading to the villas which is an arresting sight. The display of food in all its varying delights tempts the appetite be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. The hotel staff is accommodating, ready to please at all times, friendly, helpful and efficient. Hotel Amaara provides a comfortable satisfying holiday in a calm peaceful atmosphere. It certainly deserves a second visit.

Without doubt one of the favorite holidays during my time in Sri Lanka! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and the manager. Having visited Sigiriya a few times previously, I was unprepared for the lush landscapes and peacefulness Amara Forest Resort provided. My experience to date had been relegated to the Ancient parts of the city center: staying in hotels near busy city streets, surrounded by tourists and high energy. This beautiful ground with impressive accommodations, the pool and the river bank was just breathtaking. Wow, wow, wow! What a way to spend a quiet and tranquillity holiday. The rooms were very spacious, beautifully furnished, with quality fittings, bright and cheery. The bathrooms were exceptionally large. The daily Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner buffet was staffed by attentive and very friendly servers, happy to help us gather the many alluring meal items available. The pool area was beautiful. Alas, an afternoon swim in the river which flows at the far end of the resort was just the icing on the cake. From the moment we got there, to the lovely villa, to the amazing food, to the beautiful sceneries, and of course, to the most hospitable staff, from the resort manager to the gardener, all of it was by far the best resort experience we've ever had. The place was so relaxing, calm, and peaceful. The staff was extremely friendly, the restaurant very flexible (appreciate this!), the bar and restaurant staff deserves a special thanks. We had two great evenings here, which obviously also added up to the experience, where the local musicians play their instruments and give a chance for the guests to sign along. The second day we were taken on a village tour which was guided by Vajira, who is a local and a friend of the owner of the resort. Vajira’s wife and his extended family greeted us with a warm welcome to a scrumptious breakfast with all local produce. I truly enjoyed listening to his daily life stories. The scenery was just magical and it was so relaxing to be in a quiet and peaceful environment. Thank you Amara Forest Resort for making our holiday truly special! We will definitely visit you again :) We are so happy and thankful that we experienced this beautiful hidden gem.

Located on a forest area near to the Habarana Forest in middle an elephant crossing. Had a warm welcoming. There were not lot of guest on the date we checked in. But they managed to provide a limited item buffet for all guest. Food was really great and tasteful. Also they provide the safari trucks(apply additional charges) as well with complementary water bottles. Rooms are quite big with a balcony. But the mini bar was empty. Pool also quite clean and nice.

Me and my friends spent 2 nights at Amara Forest. It was a fantastic stay and everything was excellent. The staff including Mr. Ravi Perera were very friendly and attentive and looked after us so well. The food was amazing and well presented. The rooms and the pool was exceptional . We did climb both Pidurangala and Sigiriya as it's quite close to the hotel. Amara Forest is a great hotel if you do want to go on a holiday.
