              Hi, We stayed with our family of 5 adults + 1 Child. We opted for 2 rooms 1 with 3beds and 1 with double bed. Rooms are spacious, clean and equipped with facilities. Staff is courteous and available to help you any moment. The hotel is on the hills, thus connectivity is a bit problem as you can walk down the hill to city from hotel but coming back is very difficult. Fare charge for 1 ride from market to hill is Sri Lankan 700. Rest Food, ambience, facilit, pool, crowd every thing was fab. Thanks for the great stay Regards Shivam

              Great view”
              We appreciated the nice gesture at checkout as the front desk staff handed over to us a cup that I use every day as a souvenir. The view was grand according to the location as it was only up the hill from central royal mall in which we had to drop and pick up our passports, and yet very silent. The downside however was the lack of healthy items to match my Ayurvedic treatment at the different buffets and even though the F&B manager was very efficient, the staff (apart from our waiter of whom I have forgotten the three-syllabled name, so sorry!..) was somewhat absent and especially the front desk staff forgot our wake up calls twice! Hopefully we didn’t miss our plane, only breakfast! All in all the stay was a wonderful value for money even if I would personally have appreciated a bigger park or garden to walk through, a bigger swimming pool to swim in or a nice gym to work out at. But the staff was kind and trying their best to accommodate our needs. Thank you so much everyone for your kind help.

              It’s more a resort style stay. Staff are amazing. Value for money is a little poor. The restaurant dinner hours are not good with the restaurant opening at 7:30pm and coming from Sydney where it’s 5.5 hours ahead I was starving by the time it opened and you can’t just walk to a place next door because it’s so far away from everything. The drive up and down hill to get anywhere will make you dizzy.

The breakfast and dinner buffet had many choices for vegetarians and non. The staff and managers were great making sure we were comfortable and attended to all our needs.

              Nice hotel with excellent staff, good food and great service but be sure to book a room with the view of the mountains. the rooms against the back of the hotel is not good value for money. The one negative thing is that it's not that close to Kandy. you have to take a 10-15 min ride by car or tuk tuk to reach the city centre.

              Location, ayurveda spa, breakfast buffet
              The hotel is located about 7kms uphill from Kandy, and its views are totally worth staying for. Our overall experience was positive: rooms are quite spacious and clean, the breakfast buffet is superb, and the personnel is very friendly and helpful. For dinner you are better off joining the buffet - the service at the a la carte restaurant is quite slow and the food wasn't very good. Recommend a treatment at their ayurveda spa. Would definitely go back.

              After a long drive from Galle, we arrived at the Amaya Hills Hotel exhausted and in need of revitalisation and that is exactly what we got!! The gardens around the hotel and the views from the rooms and the pool were just beautiful especially during sunset. The pool was rather cold and beware of the monkeys! do not leave your doors open! we woke to a monkey eating a pineapple on our balcony. we only stayed in Kandy for 2 nights and we hired the hotel mini bus for a day tour around all the sites and temples within Kandy. The driver was great and told us all the history of the area.

Fast wifi and evening entertainment. The only cons to this hotel was that a bit of noise came from the corridors and that this hotel is quite a way out of Kandy. $5 tuk tuk each way.

              Amaya Hills has a wonderful location and view. It is excellent for romance and relaxation. Unfortunately, the blankets in the room seem to be quite dirty. This certainly should not happen in such a high standard (at least its price is very high) hotel. The wireless connection was poor in the lobby area and none in the room even though it claims to be available. Hotel staff seemed to be fully aware of such a problem. Nonetheless, they do not bother to resolve it.

              We loved this place. The hotel, the food, the staff - you name it. If there is anywhere in this country that we would choose to come back to, it would be staying at the Amaya Hills Hotel. This is our number 1 choice before anywhere else. The views from this location was magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed the buffet breakfast which delicious and varied. The rooms were not only gorgeous, but provided us with a comfortable night's rest. The woman at the front desk was so helpful and kind - going out of her way to help us with our itinerary and sort out our confusion by calling on the phone and speaking personally to the hotel concierge and directing our driver to a new set of directions. This is one hotel that will leave you with a great memory and the wish to hope to return one day for a longer stay.
