Good property by the lake. I was very satisfied with the room and the ambiance. My children enjoyed the elephant safari which was right next to the hotel and an elephant can be sighted almost every hour. The food was below par and we expected a better variety for LKR 18,000 Full board double. It was quite surprising and dissapointing...

Great personal balconies to watch the sunset. You can walk on the elephant path. Wonderfully spacious, sunny rooms. A nice, new feeling to the place which was refreshing after staying in older, established places.

We stayed for one night after visiting Sigiriya (Lions Rock) and Minneriiya. The staff were helpful and our room over looking the lake was beautiful. Unfortunately, as previously noted by others the room lacked many personal touches which for a hotel of this standard you would expect. The buffet food was less than adequate, even after complaining to the chef,...

Nice and spatious room, perfect location. Lots of potential to be a Nice boutique hotel, BUT .... Some things need to be ameliorated: bad towel quality, plastic shower curtain, bit lack of style and staff training. Food is ok. All this hotel needs is a bit of restyling and this could become a pearl with perfect quotes!

We were there for two nights, this hotel location was suggested by our travel agent. We thought the location seems suitable, it was not too far for us to travel to Elephant Orphanage, Dambulla rock cave, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa etc. Pros: 1. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. 2. Free wifi available at the lobby area 3. The...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Sorowwa Resort, using the hotel as our base of touring the northern part of the island. Our room was very nice and quite functional.

This was a very nice spot to relax and enjoy the view over the lake. The food was great and everything very clean. The staff were fantastic. The hotel is the only place to eat and drink in the area. You can walk around the lake or into the nearby “village”. We enjoyed the bar and restaurant as I friends...
