10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wow! Where to start! It was the best stay of our trip! The owners are super nice. He offered to drive us to Pidurangala at 5am in the morning - instead of taking an overpriced Tuk Tuk. The breakfast is superb! The best Sri Lankan breakfast of our whole trip! Also the dinner with various curries is delicious. Besides it's a perfect deal for the money! The location is great - one can walk the 200m to the main street for other good food options - and Sigiriya Rock - the main attraction of the village is even in walking distance (20min). My highest recommendation to stay here!
Cons: Put a shower curtain that the bathroom is not under full water after shower .. but that seems to be a problem in many places :-)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is at a really nice place. The stuff is very kind and friendly. They even called us in the room when we arrive, to check if everything is fine. And the very best things was absolutely the breakfast! It was just too good.. Pancakes, waffles, traditional sri lanka food... Everything was there.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I felt so unbelievably welcome at the hotel, thanks to the wonderful staff. And the view.. wow. Breakfast was delicious! so many things to choose from and all well prepared. Really enjoyed the pool too. The facilities are amazing. Had a superb stay! Walking distance to Lions Rock, and a beautiful and serene place.
Cons: But to be honest, I just think the prices are too high, for 200€ for 1 night I would expect a top of the bill room with fancy new bathroom. (I didn’t pay 200 but other people did.) The room has all the facilities you need, that’s not the point :) And for me the mattress was very hard (felt a bit hard as well). I would not recommend to book transport fron the hotel. The prices they charge for a taxi are insane. $95 to Kandy. I was lucky to share it otherwise I would never book it.

Pros: Kuwera was amazing - we loved this place and had an amazing stay! The staff are super friendly and helpful; the bungalows are comfortable; the food is wonderful (3 meals a day if you want) - plus a great pool and other facilities like the yoga area. The staff helped us plan a few different day tours and also offered tuk tuk tranfsers to local spots (including Sigiriya). It was the perfect place to end our trip in Sri Lanka and I hope we will be able to stay again one day. No need to bring any bottled water, as they have a central drinking water supply.
Cons: Absolutely not one single problem with Kuwera, however the village they are situated in can get a bit noisy at times. It's also a bit out of the way - you can't really walk anywhere, need to get a transfer.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely facilities, great food and super friendly staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay at Kuwera Eco Lodge. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Meals were very good with exceptional service. We stayed in a room with a loft for the kids which they loved.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nested in a beautiful garden it’s a cozy place designed to take you away from everyday’s life and fully immerse yourself in nature and peace. Great design small size excellent food from their own organic farm friendly staff and a nice pool to enjoy. Excellent location to discover the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka with its ancient cities and wildlife parks nearby. They have yoga classes and there is an Ayurvedic spa in the nearby little town. You feel refreshed and rejuvenated by staying there.
Cons: The standard room overlooks the entrance has little view and a shared patio with the adjoining room. Not really nice during the day. Much better to stay in the bigger rooms with full garden or pool view for more privacy and space.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Extra service like fixing our laundry even though this was not part of their normal offering
Cons: Very bad internet connection
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Incredible hotel, wonderful staff, amazing food! loved every minute of our stay but what made it so good was the staff! Smiley faces, kind, polite, discreet and helpful. The pool was great although we couldn't really enjoy it because it was rainy but everything at Kuwera Eco Lodge was great :) Definitely recommend having dinner there - they source the vegetables from their own garden and the food is exceptional!
Cons: loved everything - It's a 10 minute tuktuk ride from the centre of Sigiriya but it's worth it.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good pool and restaurant.
7.9 Good
Pros: New hotel, very clean, beautiful entrance and Swimming pool Staff were very nice and kind, some stuff were forgotten in our room, they were quite fast getting back (1st night no towels, second night no refill of soap) Facilities are great with the pool and we took a massage, very good!
Cons: Disappointment was the location. We stayed 3 nights and we were isolated, nothing to see nor walk around once you are back to the hotel. But for 1 or 2 nights should be fine as the place is quiet. Last thing was the food. Again I think for 3 nights because of the location, we had to eat at the hotel, and honestly for this type of hotel food quality could be much better. And quality is one thing, but the rates applied were really too expensive. Some dish were invoices 2500/2700 Rp and were not nice. So my feeling is because we were “blocked” in the hotel, price applied were high because anyway you can’t go anywhere else. So effort on the food or price to be applied.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: It was in an isolated location. Full of mosquitos, rooms smelt dank and cupboards smelt of cockroaches. There was a frog in the bathroom. And when we decided to move somewhere else for the next 2 nights the hotel refused to refund the payment for the days we did not stay there. Terrible!
6.7 Good
Pros: I loved the location.
Cons: The bed sheets were really scratchy. Not cotton.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The tree house with music and barbeque night..

Cons: The revolting fabric bedhead/canopy - it was filthy , stained, unnecessary and unhygienic. The staff were good generally but seemed to lack in overall knowledge - information had to be passed down a lot. And water was not freely available. And the TV didn’t work ... oh and the shower was weak and intermittent - probably due to needing a head clean

The food was delicious - we had a lot of traditional Sri Lankan food, which was superb, and there was also great Western food available when we wanted it. We were there for New Year's Eve, when the resort put on a delicious buffet with a live band, which had a great atmosphere and was a lovely way to see in the new year. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We can't recommend the place enough - we had a magical stay.

Pros: Good location, clean room and hot shower. Perfect for cycling around the area. Owner helped us to get bikes to cycle around which is good to see the area. Very helpful.
Cons: Only one small niggle, the owner wanted to help book our tuktuk to our next place, when we checked pricing he was putting on a big commission on the tuktuk price so we arranged our tuktuk direct with a tuktuk driver.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was prompt and it filled the belly. I would have liked more fruit, although I didn't ask for more. Great location. We hired bikes, this was super.
Cons: It wasn't busy so there was a lack of atmosphere..I'm not sure what they would have done about this.

Pros: Staff and breakfast were adorable. rooms were clean. there are several beaches and restaurants nearby the hotel and with some few minutes walking you can reach to main street. it is 15 mins walk to secret beach
Cons: too much stairs and there is no lift.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We booked quite late and needed a triple and so took a basic triple, which for our purposes (cycle touring) were excellent, as the bikes were parked easily right in front of the room. I am sure, owing to the fittings and fixtures of the majority of the hotel that the newer rooms would be excellent and we were just in an older part. The breakfast was excellent, filling and homemade, delicious. The manager, a very nice man, made it a point to greet us personally and was friendly, informative and very genial. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone staying in this area. The location was superb for to visit Lion's Rock (a short walk away) and there are close by small shops and restaurants. Many thanks!
Cons: We had mosquitoes nets on the beds anyways, but used one of our own to make a screen over the window as well so we could keep the shutters open.

Pros: Good location very near to Sigirya Rock and within easy striking distance of Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura and Dambulla. Easy walk to local restaurants and shops. Excellent value for money.
Cons: Rooms were good size and OK fittings but bathrooms were not great. Some of them had bad damp problems or unwelcome wildlife - we got to know a few little frogs and cockroaches during our stay! I'm sure this could be easily sorted out with a lick of paint and sorting out drains.
