Deer Park Hotel-Giritale Sri Lanka

Overview of Deer Park Hotel-Giritale

Deer Park Hotel in Sri Lanka is your window to the magnificent past of Sri Lanka’s ancient civilizations and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Brace yourself for the legendary tales of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Kandy, as you travel some 2,500 years back in time and unravel the historical tapestry of the Cultural Triangle. It’s as much a spiritual journey as a cultural one. It’s a story of Buddhism, royalty, kinship, war and power – a story of dreams, visions and intrigues.

Amongst the many discoveries you’ll make in the Cultural Triangle is Deer Park Hotel, which emerges in rustic splendor from the lush tropical jungle bordering Minneriya-Giritale National Park. Wild elephants, leopards, sloth bears and crocodiles are just some of the majestic animals you might encounter on a jeep safari, or some of the 160 species of birds making the park a veritable birdwatcher’s paradise.

Wildlife enthusiasts don’t need to venture far though for a taste of nature. Known as the ancient hunting ground of Sri Lankan royalty, the jungle surrounding Deer Park Hotel itself oozes tranquility and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. Individual cottages weave intimately around the forest, which echoes cultures past and present. Even the open-air bathrooms embrace the mystique of these grounds.

So, discover the beauty of Sri Lanka. Explore its stunning wildlife, rich cultures and lost civilizations. And rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit at Deer Park Hotel’s Angsana Spa. The royalty of ancient Ceylon never had it so good!
