Vil Uyana, is located in the heart of the Cultural Triangle, and is without a doubt one of the best luxury boutique hotels within the area, as well as being one of the best within the whole of Sri Lanka. The hotel is set just only 5 kilometers from the Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
There are 25 individual thatched roof chalets, which are set on a pattern of raised pathways above lake and paddy fields. The chalet types are named under Paddy Dwellings, Marsh Dwellings, Water Dwellings and Forest Dwellings. All chalets have air-condition, flat screen television with satellite and home entertainment system, tea/coffee making facilities, electronic safe, IDD telephone and mini bar.
The Paddy Dwellings are situated above paddy fields and the Marsh Dwellings, are over marshland. The Water Dwellings are placed above a lotus filled lake, providing picturesque views from the outdoor terrace. The Forest Dwellings are in a more secluded area surrounded by the jungles, and are more spacious than the other types of dwellings. It consists of 2 storey villas, with its own pool.
Some of the dwellings have their own private plunge pools, and there is also an infinity pool for all guests. There is also an Ayurvedic Spa. There are various specialty fine dining restaurants which serve international cuisine.
The excursions from Vil Uyana, include visiting the nearby Sigiriya Rock Fortress, and other cultural triangle sites, such as Pollonnaruwa, Dambulla and Anuradhapura. Within the hotel there are bicycles for exploring, as well as vast ideal areas for bird watching.
This is just the location for those seeking a peaceful, luxurious place to stay. We recommend the Paddy/Marsh dwellings or the Water dwellings at an additional supplement.
