Unique and boutique, just five kilometres from Sigiriya Rock Fortress, Vil Uyana is set in 24 acres of wetlands and paddy fields.
The 25 individual, thatched-roof chalets are rustic in style, all with a spacious interior and large bathroom. The main difference between the chalets is location – choose from a setting amongst the paddy fields or the marshlands or over the water and mangroves. The Paddy Field dwellings and two of the Marsh Dwellings also have a private plunge pool. Each of the Forest Dwellings has a larger private pool.
Facilities at Vil Uyana are limited and include a main pool, spa and Ayurvedic centre, gym and overwater library. Vil Uyana offers a choice of restaurants and some unusual private signature dining experiences, as well as an extensive wine cellar.
Perfect for those looking for somewhere peaceful and personal but not necessarily luxurious.
All the dwellings are the same size and similarly decorated inside. The main difference is location.
Paddy Field Dwellings - are located over the paddy fields and have a dining deck and small private plunge pool
Marsh Dwellings - are located amongst the marsh land with views of Sigiriya
Water Dwellings - are built over the water, the rooms are connected by wooden walkways or you can take a boat. They offer an outdoor dining area and private balcony with loungers. (NB it is not possible to swim in the water)
Forest Dwellings - are located in the forest. They are on 2 storeys with a spacious upstairs bedroom and ensuite toilet, large living area and spacious indoor/outdoor bathroom downstairs, as well as a dining area and private pool. Very private.
