Habarana has a very central location, right in the heart of the cultural triangle and home to many tourism related attractions. The latest addition to its growing number of accommodation facilities is Sungreen Resort & Spa. Located in Puwakpitiya, Habarana with convenient access to the multitude of surrounding UNESCO-listed world heritage sites such as Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Dambulla and Kandy, this is the only star-class resort in the area that gives a splendid view of the majestic Ritigala mountain, surrounded by a number of nature sanctuaries that are home to thousands of birds, some migratory as well as throngs of wild elephants for which the area is famous for.
Sungreen Resort & Spa is new. However, they’re got the beauty of nature and tranquility on their side and these assets are difficult to simulate artificially. Tucked away in a beautiful ancient, 6 acre black of land off the Habarana – Maradankaduwala Road, Sungreen’s 40 well appointed rooms overlook either the swimming pool or Habarana jungles, depending on which side they are situated. The hotel’s unique architecture and layout draws inspiration from the remains of Ritigala the 12th century monastery and hideaway of kings. These misty mountains are close to my heart as the sight of them just fills me with joy.
The restaurant can accommodate up to eighty guests who will be served organically produced food, mainly fruits and vegetables. Sungreen resort is possibly the best location for all wildlife lovers and the top wildlife sanctuaries are just half an hours drive away. Minneriya, Kaudulla, Huruluweva Eco Park, Ritigala, Managala and Galkaduwana jungle are all very close by. There are also Sigiriya, Dambulla, Trincomalee, Polonnaruwa, Giritale, Kantale and Batticaloa which are just a few hours away from the resort.
