A fabulous new resort in Sigiryia's open countryside. Maldivian style water villas over a lagoon and paddy fields. Ultimate luxury and open views of Lion Rock.
An ambitious and intriguing project creating a lifestyle hotel and introducing a wetland system on reclaimed agricultural land of the Dry Zone. Drawing from local rural traditions this exciting new resort 'naturalises' into its landscape, encouraging the indigenous flora and fauna. With 25 chalets occupying 24 acres of land, space becomes the ultimate luxury in a haven for nature lovers. Parklands and woodlands, designed for leisure, extend the ancient practice of planning gardens for pleasure. If you have always been attracted by the wonderful over - water villas of the Maldives but couldn't imagine lying in the sun doing nothing for a week, this is the thinking man's (or woman's) best altrenative.
The architectural design acknowledges four habitats; water, water edge, paddy/marsh and woodland/parkland and ongoing research will be an integral part of guest facillities. Chalets are distributed over 3 of those areas in an environment for those wishing to escape the norms of everyday life and nature lovers longing to live their hobby- albeit in luxurious comfort! Throw in unfettered views of the mighty Sigiriya Rock (the 8th wonder of the world) and it must go on your list of things to do !
The chalets are completely self contained and for special dining you may choose to eat under the stars on your own private dining deck, courtesy of room service. For further pampering spend time in the main swimming pool followed by a range of therapeutic indulgences in the Island Spa.
All the rooms are superbly equipped with an endless list of essentials and thoughtful extras:- Individually controlled air conditioning, Ceiling fans, electricity at 220/240v, telephone with IDD, minibar, TV and Satellite channels, DVD and CD players, tea/coffee making facillities, safe large enough for lap tops and cameras, hairdryers, Magnifying shaving mirror with lights, sarongs and sandals, iron and ironing board, umbrella, torch and bicycles.
