Water Garden Sigiriya is a beautifully laid out, resort-style boutique hotel set in rural countryside in the heart of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle region.
Located just 7km from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sigiriya Rock, the design of the hotel is based around landscaped water gardens, in a nod towards the ancient water gardens of Sigiriya.
The hotel’s rural location feels off the beaten track, yet the historic rock fortress of Sigiriya is within sight and is just a 20 minute drive away.
From Water Garden Sigiriya you can also discover Dambulla Cave Temples – one of Sri Lanka’s holiest shrines - and other ancient cities in the Cultural Triangle, such as Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. Elephant safaris in Minneriya National Park are also possible from the hotel.
Bicycles are available for exploring the local area independently or you can join the hotel’s daily two-hour guided nature walks.
Should you wish to relax after a day of sightseeing, cycling or walking you can visit the Water Garden Sigiriya Spa which offers a range of massages, body scrubs, wraps and Ayurvedic treatments carried out by qualified, attentive professionals.
The accommodation at Water Garden Sigiriya is comprised of 30 extremely spacious, stylish, air-conditioned villas, all offering privacy in beautiful surroundings.
The hotel has a lovely glass-walled, air-conditioned restaurant, which also has an al fresco dining terrace offering panoramic views.
Next to the restaurant is the Twin Level Bar - a fantastic place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail and take in the spectacular views of the sun setting across the countryside.
