I stayed at the Camellia Resort and Spa in October for 4 days. The staff were really friendly and attentive, the rooms spacious and clean. A great location to go and see sites within the cultural triangle.

Only downside is that the wifi signal was extremely weak and only available in the reception area. Very difficult given that we needed wifi to communicate with our driver and plan our onward trip.

Stayed: October 2016, traveled with friends

The site of the resort is situated a short drive from Sigiriya and also The National Park. It has 60 rooms which are clean and have flat screen TV's. The bed was comfortable and the room has A/C and ceiling fan, necessary given the temperature. The grounds are layed out to balance with nature with large spaces given to Grass , trees and folliage. The swimming pool is kept very clean and is a good way to cool down. The food is of high quality, there is an evening buffet available or A la carte. with both Sri Lankan and European dishes available. I tried the massage and it was ofd professional standard. All the staff were very friendly and hospitable especially helpful were Achini and Mithira. My only bad criticism was of WIFI at the time of my stay only available at reception, this should be cured soon, however, as cable is being laid so that all rooms will have availability.
In conclusion, Camellia is a very good choice if you want to relax, eat good food, and also wish to tour Sigirya and surrounding districts.

Got a chance to visit Sri Lanka. I would say that it's a really good experience to see the country and a really good experience also to stay in a place like Camellia Resort and Spa. This resort and spa is a good choice whenever you visit Sigiriya. Aside from their good amenities, I am very happy to stay and relax to their elegantly designed rooms and to eat all the good stuffs that they've prepared for us and to all other guests. :) Overall, this place is a really good choice! All staffs are friendly and accommodating. Thumbs up for a good stay!

Room Tip: Good resort to relax.

Camellia resort and spa is in the middle of "nowhere" but close to most of the attractions. It is about a kilometer from the main road. Once you go into the premises you get real quiet time....I mean literally quiet time. I had not experienced so much quietness for a long time being from a hustle and bustling city. In fact the night sky is so clear, lazing by the pool after dinner, you could see all the stars in the sky.

I had wanted some time off for myself and my family and that is exactly what I got.

The sprawling hotel premises is well kept and the staff are also pleasant and accommodating. I guess it is their culture and I experienced it throughout Sri Lanka.
The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is even more spacious. As we stayed on half board (breakfast and dinner) for which they had good spread of western and local dishes. On one of the dinner night they had a life band who could actually could sing multiple language songs like Spanish, Chinese, English etc. They went to each table and sang in their language and with the applause they got after the song, guess they must have sang it perfectly ;)

In short it is a perfect place with good amenities to retreat and have some time with yourself, loved ones or family. Oh by the way the internet only works in the reception area so like I said you get literally quiet time.

The silence is only broken when a bus load of Chinese travellers arrive ;)
