An Enchanted Forest

Roman Lake nestles in an enchanted forest on the edge of one of Sri Lanka’s largest inland waterways, the Maduganga in Balapitiya. Pristine mangroves mingle with languid waters and a tropical forest to create the Maduganga, a unique and unspoiled space and one of the country’s best kept secrets.


Roman Lake has eight suites, three on the ground floor and five on the first floor. Each suite comes equipped with a flat screen television, music system, a mini-bar, coffee and tea making facilities and large balconies or terraces. Bathrooms are spacious and tastefully organized. Some bathrooms come with rain showers open to the stars. Each suite has a terrace or balcony. Wi-fi is available in the room, by the pool and on the lawn.The suites on the first floor have a Jacuzzi, either on the balcony or inside the bathroom, all with views of the languid Maduganga. King size beds, crisp white sheets and extraordinary levels of customized service provide an added touch of luxury.

More on accomodation


Good food is a priority at Roman Lake. The sights, the sounds and the flavours of its cuisine are one of the special experiences to be savoured. Fresh seafood, oriental magic and fusion cuisine, are among the chef’s specials. Challenge yourself with the golden spices and fresh fruit of Sri Lanka or dip into subtle creations from other parts of the world. Meals may be had within the privacy of the rooms, at the common dining area adjacent to the pool, or on the lawns by the waterside. A special dining experience may be had on the hotel’s Jetty / pier, floating above the languid Maduganga and listening to the resort’s unique natural nightlife.
