Ancient cities of Sigiriya
Sigiriya refuses to reveal its secrets easily, and you'll have to climb a series of vertiginous staircases attached to sheer walls to reach the top. On the way you'll pass a series of quite remarkable frescoes and a pair of colossal lion's paws carved into the bedrock. The surrounding landscape – lily-pad-covered moats, water gardens and cave shrines – only add to Sigiriya's rock-star appeal.
Against the backdrop of the Sigiriya Rick Fortress, Aliya Resort is nestled among the lush greenery of rolling fields of the dry zone of the Central Province. Themed on the beloved Sri Lankan elephant or ‘Aliya’ as known in the Sinhala language, the resort has a distinct feel of living in a quintessential Sri Lankan village, but with all the modern facilities required for a comfortable and idyllic stay, away from the bustle of the city. The resort is ideally located for exploring Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle that includes the ancient cities of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya.
Each of the four deluxe bedroom contains a Queen sized bed (two double beds, or extra bed if required), a desk and chair, two comfortable sofa chairs and two large hope chests for storage, which form a cushioned divan at the foot of the bed.
