Ehalagala Lake Resort, Sigiriya (Lion Rock) is a luxury resort overlooking the lake bund [300 meters in length] in proximity to the world heritage site Sigiriya.
“One wouldn’t need a pair of binoculars to view the Lion Rock or Pidurangala from our resort.”
Historically, whilst The Kingdom of Sigiriya lends its legacy to royalty, culture and art in a mirror wall, graffiti, murals of damsels in splendour can be seen on one's way to Lion’s mouth entrance. Entering through the lion's mouth, a short climb opens to a vista of 4 acres at its summit the seat of royalty, the palace. Contrasting Pidurangala (the adjoining rock monastery) lends its heritage to spirituality in Theravada Buddhism.
Tastefully decorated villas where luxurious living and untampered environments blend to form the villas. Complemented with open type bathrooms, rain showers, bathtubs, hot and cold water, internet and modern amenities. Furniture made of Nadun timber, cane, pottery and indoor plants produces an ambience of antiquity. Villas range from 3 Queens size, 5 standard doubles and 3 singles.

Ehalagala Resort tailor makes packages for Foreign and local Weddings, conference, group meetings and seminars. Please ask for a quote. From December 31 night to Sinhala New year (April 13th and 14th) through to Christmas day, we follow and celebrate all events.
For experienced birders and equally the novice, special excursions can be arranged. There is a club too which specifically caters for birders. Within the vicinity of Sigiriya and Dambulla, there are many species of owls, hawks, pelicans, peacocks, aquatic birds, amphibians etc. Not surprisingly, it has been reported of spotting owls with wingspans extending to two feet whilst in flight. Because the jungles are arid, elephants habitually visit the lake to quench their thirst, freely roam about and sometimes pay a visit to Ehalagala too - usually by night.
For all those reasons we have said, Ehalagala Resort invites you to patronise our serene resort in the semi-wilderness, a setting that encapsulates primitiveness, wild-life, history, culture, scenic beauty and sunshine. After all the challenging times you have faced, let us at Ehalagala Resort pamper you uttermost, you deserve it.
