Green Paradise Resort, Dambulla
The 4-star Paradise Resort and Spa at Dambullais one of the foremost luxury hotels in this ancient and historic city, which lies at the centre of Sri Lanka’s famed Cultural Triangle.
This beautiful eco-resort is within easy reach of heritage sites such as the Dambulla Rock Temple, with its amazing paintings and Buddha statues, Sigiriya Rock fortress, and the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa.
It is also a natural gateway to Sri Lanka’s many prized east-coast tropical beaches, all of which makes Dambulla one of our Paradise island’s most popular holiday destinations.
The Paradise Resort’s Saturnia Spa offers traditional Thai treatments to revitalize and uplift body and soul, while the Sri Lankan Ayurveda Spa includes detoxification, de-stressing, deep relaxation, rejuvenation and general well-being.
Since sports and recreation are also keys to health and fitness, facilities for table tennis, volleyball, cricket and lawn tennis are available, plus the option to explore the surroundings on mountain bike or horseback.
Meanwhile, a luxurious swimming pool, live evening entertainments, a full program of excursions and a reading room for those quiet moments are also provided.
A star attraction of Paradise Resort is its close proximity to two of Sri Lanka’s eight UNESCO World Heritage sites: the magnificent Dambulla Cave Temple, with its paintings and sculptures, and the awe-inspiring Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
For nature lovers, Minneriya National Park, with the biggest seasonal gathering of wild elephants found anywhere in the world, and Jathika Namal Uyana, with the largest ironwood forest and the rose-quartz mountains in Asia, are not to be missed.
And for anyone fascinated with the history of Buddhism, the Matale Aluvihare, where some of the earliest Buddhist scriptures in existence were first written down on palm leaves, is also a must-visit.
