See what our Customers think

April – May 2022: We visited with my mum and dad who live in Sri Lanka and since they are feeble on their feet it was very hard for them to climb the stairs to the dining room. But the staff and the owner were so incredibly helpful and individually brought all the food and cutlery, plates, drinks and tea down and set up the whole thing for each meal on the table and chairs outside our ground floor room. I love the fact that they use their own produce to cook and all the staff are so accomodating and welcoming, one phone call and they would come and help with whatever you need. Since we go to visit the Sri Maha Bodhi very early in the morning, they prepared and served us tea 5.30am in the morning before we had to leave.

The hotel itself is wonderfully built and designed, feels so homely and amazingly, the owner used his own materials and recycles everything. The fact that the garden is so spacious you can spend alot of time outside.

But the standout of everything is how down to earth the owner is, you can have a chat to him about anything! He is so friendly and accomodating. He even gave my daughter a fruit “anodha” from his garden to take home. My whole family was so touched by their hospitality we could not wait to come back whenever we visited Anuradhapura.

We were at Saliya Garden in mid-June 2023 and we had the best of time!
The accomodation was clean, comfortable and cool, and the restaurant was just fantastic. The owner is the best of hosts, I miss all the chats we had, and the games I played with his beautiful dog Kai. Cook Isuru really made us dream with his delicious dinners and breakfasts (how much I miss Sri lankan food!). Special mention also for guide Farooq: he took us for an amazing tour in Anuradhapura, he is incredibly knowledgeable and the sweetest person to spend time with.
At Saliya Garden we found all we needed: peace, excellent food, nice people, relax in the fantastic pool, all the fuit you ever dreamed of, and the absolutely amazing site of Anuradhapura.
I hope I will go back soon, miss it so much!
