Sigiriya Village Hotel

Sigiriya Village Hotel

Tucked within the Cultural Triangle is Sigiriya Village – a beautiful hotel situated against the backdrop of the awe inspiring Sigiriya Rock. The hotel is spread over a large area of 26 acres - with chalet style accommodation that blends unobtrusively with the natural environment. Vast gardens and lotus pools are everywhere – a natural antidote to an exhausting day spent sight-seeing.

Sigiriya Village is a staple hotel of the cultural triangle, offering comfortable mid-range accommodation in a charming rustic setting. The accommodation is designed similar to a typical rural village where individual cottages or dwellings in clusters of about ten, are located in secluded landscaped gardens. Pathways along lotus-filled ponds connect each of the clusters with the main central area where dining facilities are located. Sigirya Village is an ideal destination for children who will enjoy the separate garden play area and the families of monkeys that hover on the tree tops.


Sigiriya Village has 120 rooms, individually designed earth-toned cottages, each with a bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and private verandah. Standard and Superior cottages are on offer with or without A/C. Other facilities include satellite TV, telephone and mini bar. The cottages are arranged in six clusters, with a unique Sri Lankan theme and vibrant interiors. The cottages are equipped with modern amenities and are designed in a manner to ensure optimum comfort. Clusters of cottages are named and decorated with reference to rural life. The interiors of the King Fisher cluster are highlighted in hues of blue, the Paddy cluster in shades of green, the Temple cluster uses frangipani motifs in yellows and white, and the Avurudhu cluster in reds, oranges and greens. The King Arbor cluster is secluded and provides for more privacy.
