Roo Mansala, or “alluring abode” in English, is located in Sigiriya, the heart of Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle. With mesmerising views of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress (dubbed the eighth wonder of the world) and the Pidurangala Rock, Roo Mansala offers peaceful seclusion of the lush, fertile plains where ancient kings dwelt, duelled, and sought refuge. The unique architecture of the hotel, reminiscent of the ancient architecture of the Rock Fortress, blends the marvels of Sigiriya, with modern boutique living. Roo Mansala is a refuge to all seasonal travellers offering a unique, personalised, hospitality experience in an eco-friendly setting.
We, at Roo Mansala, take immense pride in our 2500-year- old recorded history and illustrious heritage. Located adjacent to the 8th wonder of the world, we are deeply conscious of the legacy, culture, and ancestry that has been passed from generation to generation handed down from our ancestors. Roo Mansala is a homage to ancient architecture of Sri Lanka. We have incorporated the architectural traditions of Sigiriya to provide our visitors with an immersive experience of culture, heritage, and personalised hospitality in an tropical setting.
Roo Mansala is perfectly positioned at the heart of the cultural triangle at the centre of Sri Lanka. We are within striking distance (1 km) from the UNESCO world heritage site: Sigiriya Rock Fortress, and the Pidurangala rock. All the significant historical sites of Sri Lanka are easily accessible from our location. Dambulla Cave Temple is 20 minutes away. Kandy, the last kingdom of Ceylon, can be reached in two hours. The ancient kingdoms of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, and ruins of Ritigala can be reached under two hours.

Roo Mansala is committed towards environmental conservation. We are aware of the fact that our operations has an impact on the environment. We have attempted to minimise our impact on the environment by a number of measures. The property acquired to construct our hotel was bare land, and most of the trees had been cut. Since our acquisition, we have planted close to a three hundred trees on our property. This shows our commitment to mitigate any adverse effects on the environment and operate in a manner that is environmentally responsible and economically sustainable. We use environmentally friendly materials and are conscious of energy and water conservation. We also manage waste in a systematic manner, waste is divided according to perishable and non-perishable following the directives of the waste management centre of the local government.
