Concept and Design Embracing one of Sri Lanka's most beloved animals, the elephant ('Aliya' in Sinhala), the Aliya Resort & Spa is set in the lush forests where elephants roam free. An artful blend of contemporary architecture and the minimalistic style with an authentic Sri Lankan touch, the resort aims to provide the distinctive experience of a villager's uncomplicated lifestyle. Location - Sigiriya, Sri Lanka Accommodation Each chalet's chic yet simple structural design has been carefully planned to blend in with its natural surrounding and have been built to comply with green building guidelines on energy and environment. The resort consists of 96 rooms that come equipped with all modern comforts, illustrating a discreet opulence. These rooms have been uniquely designed with the colours and motifs of Sri Lankan batik with themes mostly inspired by the elephant, giving them an artistic appeal. In addition to the chalets, the resort accommodate 18 spacious luxury tents.

We stayed one night and it was our first visit to the Aliya. Amazing experience 👍. We really love the theme.location is perfect facing Sigiriya Rock and pidurangala rock both. Very well sighted hotel ,the pool , dining and accommodation without disturbing the environment with gaining the maximum uninterrupted view . Farming, paper recycling projects are very well maintained. Staff is very friendly and most important thing was the food . Very well balanced buffet with almost everything possible and very tasty. I am very proud as a Srilankan to have hotel in this nature in Sigiriya where foreigners who are visiting here will experience the real srilankan environmental conditions. Thanks all who are contributed and looking forward to coming back again. - Rohan

We visited the hotel with office colleagues. Everything was as we anticipated. We were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and good quality.Superior service given by gym instructor Mr.Umesh.Most importantly we would like to thank the chef Eranda who was more than just a chef. He was full of smiles and an example for great customer care.we had lovely conversation about varieties of food.And live cooking experience was superb and had a chance to taste mouth watering cream cheesy pasta which was made by his hand.chef Eranda is a real asset to the resort. Keep up the good work everyone. Will see you again no doubt.

“Aliya” means the elephant in singhala that’s the reason you will find representations of elephants everywhere in the resort. It is a luxurious hotel, that yet recalls Sri lankan village life. I stayed there with my family and everything was wonderful. - The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and the bathrooms are so nice! - Food is delicious, delicate and well presented. - The pool is huge and you can see both Sigirya rock and Pidurangala from the reception hall. - The staff was so friendly and welcoming…I didn’t see anyone without wearing a warm smile. . Special thanks to Prabhath who was very kind and helpful. He did everything to satisfy everyone’s need on the table. He perfectly did advice our “NO CHILLY/ NO PEPPER” member on the dishes that would better suit her. - It is a very beautiful and peaceful land where we can walk or do bicycle.

Location - Calm environment to spend a relaxing time close to the nature. Sigiriya and Pidurangala are well seen and beautiful wide swimming pool. Rooms - The rooms and bathrooms are clean, large and spacious. Meals (full-board basis) - Food is average. Since there were only a few visitors buffet was not available. Set menu only. Ayur-vie Spa - We used foot massage and it was great. Staff & Service - Friendly & helpful. Thank you very much for the excellent hospitality

View was great. Food and servise was excellent. Cheff Eranda was one of the humble person who spent some time to talk to us in his busy schedule. View from the restaurent was amazing with the pool and Sigiriya rock in the background. Can recommend to anyone who is willing to go.

Amazing food, people and an AMAZING swimming pool were the main highlights of my stay at Aliya. Seeing Sigiriya while relaxing in that stunning swimming pool was a privilege. Would recommend to anyone.
