Water Garden Sigiriya
Sigiriya

With Sigiriya Rock Fortress looming in the distance, Water Garden, a beautifully landscaped resort brings a majestic touch to its natural surroundings. Set in the heart of Sri Lanka’s ‘cultural triangle’, in the central Matale district, the expansive property comprises 30 stylish villas dispersed amongst elegant waterways, pools and lush green meadows. The design draws inspiration from the nearby ancient water gardens of Sigiriya, creating a natural sense of seclusion and serenity.

There are three categories of villa, the Duplex Villas, the Superior Deluxe and the Deluxe. Both the Duplex Twin and the Superior Deluxe comprise a private plunge pool and decking (which we highly recommend), and all three are decorated with chic and spacious interiors, and have a range of luxurious amenities. Guests can choose to dine either in the main pavilion restaurant, which serves both traditional and international cuisine, or in an intimate outdoor setting by candlelight. The split-level bar boasts panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, the perfect place to view Sigiriya Rock at sunset with a cooling Arak Sour. The spa offers a range of treatments, using quality organic ingredients, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in the tranquillity of this tropical oasis.

In addition to the on-site facilities, the hotel arranges a variety of excursions to the nearby cultural and natural attractions, and a range of recreational activities such as billiards, cycling and archery.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
