Built amongst 22 hectares of paths winding through the natural forested grounds, Amaya Lake Hotel Kandalama is a perfect selection to spend your holiday with its 120 villas scattered around the manicured gardens. This certified eco and bird friendly resort is just 15 minutes away from Dambulla, with easy access to the Dambulla Rock Temple, Sigiriya Rock Fortress, and other heritage sites such as Pollonaruwa and Anuradhapura.

Rooms at Amaya Lake Hotel Kandalama are luxurious, but minimal, with facilities including a mini bar, tea/coffee maker, in-room safe, and a television with many local and international channels. Relax in a molded sofa, while steps lead to a slightly raised bedroom area and a spacious bathroom.

Guests can enjoy international and Sri Lankan cuisines at the restaurant with views of Kandalama Lake, or enjoy an exclusive cocktail at the Lake Bar. For recreation, guests can take walks through the large gardens, go boating, relax with a yoga session, or take a bicycle ride through the lake banks. After a hectic day, guests can relax while indulging in an authentic Ayurveda spa treatment.

Beau R. Couples Australia, July 12, 2015
Great hotel with beautiful ambiance.

The A La Carte Restaurant. The Rooms. The open-feel
Staying here was like staying in a little wilderness retreat. The rooms are very spacious - like little homes spread across the resort. We enjoyed a meal by the pool and generally unwinding in our room. At dinner time, we recommend going to the a la carte restaurant (by golf buggy if you don't mind!) and claiming a spot next to the pool. Food was delicious and moderately priced considering the quality, nature of the hotel and beautiful pool with colourful lights decorating the ambiance. The hotel has great facilities though the wifi is rubbish (except at the restaurant) though that's not entirely a bad thing - I think it's nice to get away from sometimes. Wandering the area is gorgeous as is the food and decor. I don't feel it has the shwank of a 5-star hotel but it is certainly very nice.

July 2015 stay with 50% off offer

Lodge/chalet style, great layout and setting, friendly accomodating staff
Really enjoyed the stay Improvements that should b made is WiFi access in every room, not just the lobby, and encourage the staff to practice and develop their communication/language skills further
