Water Garden

The hotel data

Striking views of the iconic Sigiriya Rock dominate the skyline at Water Garden, visible from the restaurant, swimming pool, and each of the two-story villas. This vista inspired renowned Sri Lankan architect Channa Dasawatte to design this boutique hotel as a tribute to the ancient water gardens that surrounded Sigiriya Rock Fortress in the 5th century.

Each villa has cool, contemporary interiors, a spacious ensuite bathroom, and bedroom with king- sized four-poster, desk, wardrobe, and private terrace. Deluxe Villas have the addition of a small garden area complete with Jacuzzi plunge pool and sunbeds. The two-bedroom Duplex Villas are ideal for families.

Evenings are idyllic at Water Garden, spent dining in the chandelier-adorned open-sided restaurant and relaxing in the billiards room. During the day, use the pool or the gym with sauna and steam rooms, and explore the estate with a range of activities like birdwatching, nature treks, and archery.
