Virgin Holidays View
Sitting in the shadow of world renowned rock fortress, Sigiriya, Vil Uyana is an exotic collection of bungalows built with due deference to local traditions. It’s easy to imagine what life was like here 2000 years ago as nature in all its unspoilt majesty is yours to behold. Accommodation is sumptuous in both style and comfort with the option of dwelling over-water with private deck, within the paddy field habitat with private plunge pool or in the forest with private 22ft pool. All offer peace and tranquillity in abundance with plenty of treks for those who want to explore their delightful surrounds to the full and cycle rides too. An infinity-edged swimming pool, merging into the lake is a wonderful place to while away a few hours, gazing upon the rightful inhabitants of the water who often hover close by, completely unconcerned by your presence. There is also yoga for the enthusiast and a snug library with gorgeous views across the lake. A spot of pampering is essential whilst at the Uyana with an unparalled range of luxurious treatments at the spa as well as an Ayurveda and naturopathy treatment centre. Enter a world of pure bliss, allowing the soothing scents of aromatherapy oils to completely engulf you. Fine dining at the Aspara is a princely affair with gourmet fare accompanied by only the best wines served in cut-glass crystal. If you prefer something a little less grand, the Sulang offers light bites and refreshing drinks. In fact, you can dine anywhere you wish at the Uyana, simply choose your spot and friendly staff will do the rest!
