Water Garden Sigiriya

Grandly planted in the wilderness of Sigiriya, 4 hours’ drive from Colombo, ‘Water Garden Sigiriya’ elucidates an off-the-beaten, middle-of-nowhere appeal, where ticking of clocks is unregarded.

Best Known For

Centered around landscaped water ponds, ‘Water Garden Sigiriya’ is deeply reminiscent of the storied water gardens found at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sigiriya Fortress, in whose shadow it lies. The resort’s substantial gardens are framed by peaceful paddy fields and ancient trees that are characteristic of tropical backwaters.

The Experience

Set about with winding water streams and picture-perfect flora, the 30 villas at ‘Water Garden Sigiriya’ combine chic interiors with water features and nature views. Partially submerged in water, the Deluxe Villas overlook lush blue forests while the Superior Deluxe Villas, enhanced with private plunge pools, afford panoramic views of the Sigiriya Rock. Both these villa types consist of one bedroom, fitted with a king size bed. Enveloped in watery, green expanses, the Duplex Twin Villas offer 2 bedrooms and a private plunge pool with Jacuzzi.

Themed around a bohemian-meets-traditional character, the ‘Main Restaurant’ at ‘Water Garden Sigiriya’ serves culinary delights from around the world while the ‘Twin Level Bar’ glasses out a wide variety of beverages, over views of the Sigiriya Rock. Decorated with warm and earthy hues, the spa offers soothing Balinese massages, helping one untangle from rigorous routines. A swimming pool languishes in the capacious tropical gardens, promising picture-perfect escapism from worldly cares.
