    Nice hotel, but if your not a fan of bats its best to avoid”

    The location and scenery around the hotel are amazing, only 30 minutes away from Sigiriya. The buffet options for both breakfast and dinner were immense and delicious. Our room was great, nice and clean, but slightly overpriced. As the hotel has open corridors from the room to the main lobby at night many bats fly around so if you are not a fan you may want to find somewhere else.

    Scenic beauty all around you”

    The hotel was made with a purpose... to be as close to nature without harming or altering the surroundings too much. The hotel oversees the lake and is built around rocks and the jungle. You can't help but admire the beauty around you. They have 3 swimming pools out of which the infinity pool at the reception has the best view of the lake. The rooms were pretty clean and the staff courteous. Being close to nature has it's own cons though - insects were all over... you have to keep the balcony closed unless you like living with insects... we were travelling with an infant so it was a good thing that we carried mosquito repellent stickers with us The food was good. They also custom made dishes for our dietary requirements. We enjoyed our stay here. We had 3 night here... In hindsight I feel 2 would've been enough to enjoy the place and see places in Sigiriya

    The hotel location and view are very good. We had booked 2 rooms with a 40% discount but this does not mean that the hotel should give us very old, not clean rooms. The bathroom's curtains were disgusting, the rooms not clean. Very disappointing.

    Amazing!”

    Amazing views, great atmosphere, good breakfast with Kandalama tank as the backdrop. Rooms are spacious and clean, service of the staff is excellent and all requests were attended to. We loved the place BUT it is worth taking note that this hotel has signs of aging, it is showing in some parts of the rooms hopefully the management will renovate this amazing piece of architecture in time. Definitely will visit again.

    Must stay masterpiece of Jeffery Bawa with hotel architecture on surface of rock on a hill, facing to vast view of lake. All the room seems lake view with Sigiriya Rock in center. The hotel is designed as a part of forest, so that monkeys squirrels and birds are on roof and wall of the structure as if you are living in forest. Hotel facility is luxually spaced with wide view. The hotel locates easy access to Dambulla, Sigiriya Rock and Minneriya National Park. It is highly recommendable to stay in the hotel if you plan to go these places.

    In the jungle ”

    Beautifully located in the jungle, this hotel is quiet and relaxing. Monkeys are everywhere and looking at them from your own balcony/shower when they eat and play aid a good show. The infinity pool is lovely, the spa is good and so does the food. Having said that, the choice of food is very limited and price can be steep.

Infinity pool is really nice with fantastic view. Breakfast buffet and dinner which was included was very nice. Lots of choices. The tea was superb. Staff are friendly enough. Spa was excellent. They were very friendly, manager provided excellent customer service. Lots of monkeys around. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    Amazing hotel in spectacular location”

    Location. design, service

    Heritance Kandalama is absolutely unique and spectacular. It is a large hotel and can be crowded and noisy (especially the pools) but it is simply an unmissable experience due to the setting and design. The room was very comfortable, the food was delicious and the personal service to help book outings was very attentive. You are a bit trapped in the hotel due to the isolated location and this causes costs to add up but again it's such a unique experience filled with natural beauty and so many animals that it's completely worth it. The spa is also very good.

    This is more than what I expected. Indeed this hotel location is a little far from Sigiriya rock however this hotel can offer something worthwhile to pay visit. Very spacious common space and every single corner they decorate space with nice furniture. room is clean and equipped enough. View from pool is awesome. You can see Sigiriya rock with lake. I highly recommend this hotel.

    View, tranquility, food

    It was a relaxing short stay. Everything is excellent except for the staff who took us to a wrong room (we booked for a luxurious double but he took us to a standard twin), and did not even apologise when we point that out to him. The restaurants are up to the standard of a 5 star hotel. The infinity pool is a must visit.

    Iconic, green jewel”

    architecture, hotel staff, location

    This hotel was really a highlight of our trip in Sri Lanka. It is built in an amazing location cuddled in a rock formation over-looking a reservoir. Hotel Staff are all friendly and professional, and got things done even with some big tour groups in the hotel when we were there. Breakfast was plentiful at a restaurant with a great view. Monkeys and Squirrels are hopping about, and our 5yrs-old had a great fun watching them. It is a bit confusing reaching the hotel if you are not part of an organized tour and especially arriving after dark. There are not may signs along the way, and they are not written Heritance Kandalama. I think some said “Aitken Spence Hotel” (to be confirmed).
