The position with view over the lake is outstanding. Food here is a match for the scenery. Lots of concrete inside the hallways does make it a bit noisy at times from other guests.

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.

An architectural marvel that seems to have become part of the natural environment. A green oasis quite unlike many concrete monstrosities that call themselves luxury hotels. The only downside - the elephant rides do not go with the Eco hotel image. They are cruel and outdated.

Breathtaking Place!”
I have stayed many times at this hotel and it never surprises to amaze me. I was a bit disappointed that the staff this time were a bit inexperienced and we did not get the same warm welcome we usually got. We were rushed through reception on arrival and were dumped in the poolside cafe. We had to ask for a welcome drink and the waiter didn't understand what we meant. This was very disappointing as i had brought two friends who had never been before and I had built the place up to them and their expectations were very high. Our greeting wasn't what we expected but the hotel, view and other experiences were highly enjoyable.

An Amazing Hotel in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the jungle. Room is great with fantastic view of the Lake and Sigiriya rock and surrounding. 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.

One of the best in Sri Lanka”
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).
