Elephas Resort, Sigiriya
The 4-star Elephas Resort at Sigiriya, with its 32 luxury rooms, restaurant, swimming pools and 24-hour room service, is ideal for visitors wishing to explore the best of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle.
Sigiriya rock fortress itself—the Lion Rock, an ancient ‘palace in the sky’ and one of Sri Lanka’s eight UNESCO World Heritage sites—is of course the central attraction.
But also within easy reach are many more of our historic locations, as well as peerless wildlife sanctuaries such as the famed national parks at Minneria, Kaudulla and Wasgamuwa.
The resort’s name, Elephas, suggests elephants—and with good reason, for the nearby Minneriya National Park hosts the biggest seasonal gathering of wild elephants found anywhere in the world
Also close by is the magnificent Dambulla Cave Temple, with its paintings and Buddhist sculptures. And the Matale Aluvihare, where some of the earliest Buddhist scriptures in existence were first written down on palm leaves, is also a must-visit.
Highpoints of your stay at Elephas Resort include outdoor activities ranging from the peaceful and relaxing—bird watching, fishing—to the more strenuous and challenging, such as rock climbing and hiking among our rolling hills and verdant valleys.
A guided walking or cycling tour of some of our nearby traditional villages is also a must, where day-to-day existence exhibits a gentle and relaxed approach to life.
Meanwhile, for amateur and professional photographers alike, the Cultural Triangle contains a wealth of opportunities to record memorable snapshots of the real Sri Lanka. So don’t forget your camera!
The ambiance of Elephas Hotel is reflected in every guestroom. Whether Deluxe Single, Deluxe Double or Deluxe Triple, all have air conditioning, wood floors, free wifi, car parking, ceiling fan, satellite TV, balcony, and double beds.
