About this property


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.
