Stayed 1 night in March 2017
Fascinating nature”
We were in the dark of selecting a place for our stay on that day. Our previous Amaya chain experience made us selecting this and we never thought our stay here would have been more memorable like this. We really fell in love with the greenery surrounding and of course the friendly smile and service of every individual we were treated by. We selected garden view suite. The room was with lot of space and very comfortable. Nicely furnished to match the surrounding. Actually amazing! Don't forget to have your dinner at the signature restaurant (mini restaurant) if you happened to stay here. View is so amazing.

Disappointing”
Reserving the room was a nightmare and we ended up overpaying due to the reservation team screwing up couple of times and taking ages to reply emails, so we ended up reserving via Agoda at a higher price. Pictures of Room online (for 4 adults) did not quite match what we received. Food/drinks were low quality and/or poorly cooked both on buffet and menu. Couple of nights there were power cuts which were followed by some sort of alarm waking up everyone on the room. A lot of staff could poorly communicate in English ( to the extend of not understanding ''OK'', in a case) ... On the positive, location is beautiful, the room was clean enough and at least one of the room service guys were really helpful.

fantastic hotel - to be recommended”
Signature = (luxury?) part of Amaya Lake. Fantastic room (for 3 persons, incl teenage daughter), in splendid gardens at lakeside, with plenty of birds & some small wildlife. Nice pools : 1 big (Amaya Lake?) and 1 a bit calmer (Signature?) Nice main restaurant (buffet), and also a very romantic (Signature side?) à la carte at poolside (with stars in the sky & in the pool) WiFi was 'OK, not fantastic' (or is that fantastic ;-) ?) A pitty we only booked 2 nights, I would have stayed longer, yet our round trip planning was booked. Perhaps (one of) the best hotels in Sri Lanka.

Disappointed”
We expected to really enjoy Amaya. The setting is very picturesque, all the bungalows are well appointed and the rooms are luxury par excellence especially the bathrooms. We were disappointed. Check-in was chaotic and took ages particularly as a coach load arrived at the same time. Everything about the place felt corporate, starting with the exorbitant prices. Our first evening we dined at the Signature restaurant. Apart from another table, we were the only ones there. We wanted to order a bottle of wine and were taken aback that the same wine which we'd enjoyed a few days previously at another hotel cost more than twice what we had paid. And that was the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu. The food prices were equally inflated. The staff were very sweet and made a real effort, though occasionally they were a bit overly attentive. We enjoyed chatting to them but had also hoped to have an intimate meal in the romantic setting. The hotel also quoted ridiculous prices for a tuktuk to take us to the Dambulla caves (which were amazing) and a car with driver to tour Sigiriya and Polonaruwa the next day. We made alternative arrangements. We had the feeling on numerous occasions that a tip was expected (we'd always leave a gratuity for all the staff at the end of our hotel stay and hadn't been made to feel we needed to constantly dip into our pockets anywhere else). On the other hand, because I had a streaming cold, one of the staff at the Signature restaurant made a lovely ginger and honey drink on two occasions which was a genuine act of kindness. And it worked! The breakfasts were incredible. On the whole, the staff were very friendly and really trying hard. It's just a shame that they get a bit lost in this rather impersonal hotel.

This Hotel is now incorporated into Amaya Lake hotel”
We booked Signature Amaya, followed the road signs from Dambulla to Signature Amaya. The first hotel we encountered was Amaya Lake, which in the map was further around the lake than Amaya Signature. The gate keeper assured us we were at the correct hotel. I went to reception and said I had booked Amaya signature. She said that's fine and here is your room key, and that we were lucky to get an upgrade. Considering Amaya Lake was cheaper than Amaya. Signature , found this amusing. However the hotel was lovely. Will review Amaya Lake on Tripadvisor

Amenities, food, and spa
Overall was good, however check out was grossly inefficient and the reception desk (visa/debit machines, computers, and staff) are not equipped to handle the volume of visitors checking out in the morning.
