Pros: lovely setting-the beauty is in its remoteness. Well-appointed rooms with a great balcony and view, good food, friendly staff. The extra bed was a wooden bed with mattress, not a folding bed - what a treat! They have the thickest toilet paper I have ever used! LOVE the fact that this hotel was cut into a rock, and that...

The design of the hotel is spectacular and we love how the hotel seamlessly integrates into the surrounding nature. Watching the sunset over the lake at the hotel's infinity pool is indeed a unique experience. Having said that, the service is really average considering the price of the room. Room amenities were lacking, shower and shampoo were half filled, when... More

We came for the view and architecture and in that regard were not disappointed. The hotel is uniquely designed in how it allows nature to intercede with the structure. Plants grow in and around the building, monkeys clambor from balcony to balcony and bats fly down the halls at night. It creates and interesting experience. The service was also generally... More

Wonderful setting and architecture. The landscaping and setting on a hillside overlooking a lake is amazing. The hotel rooms are slightly dated but not enough to cause any botheration. it takes a while to get to the hotel from any of the other tourist cities in Sri Lanka, so at least a two night stay is needed.

I'd wanted to stay at Kandalama Hotel when I visited Sri Lanka 10 years ago, and this time I was a bit sceptical if it would really be that special... I was wrong to have any doubt! This hotel is fantastic. If you like architecture or interesting design, you'll love this hotel, literally built in and around the side of... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during a tour of Sri Lanka and really loved it. The location is amazing – overlooking the lake and built into the landscape. The room and bathroom were lovely with beautiful views over the lake. Beware – there are a lot of monkeys about – we nearly lost our... More
