Visited kandalama hotel after a decade since our last visit. We are on our way to East and stayed one night there. The charm and the elegance of Kandalama is still there. Only missing thing for me was the oriental music group and two singers who used to sing during the evening. Dinner was a disaster for us, probably due... More

As of a nature lover it was an awesome experience in the wild. The monkeys were very keen at trying to grab our stuff as they pushed windows by themselves! They were... More

This hotel is built into the rock and cannot be seen until you are right at the lobby - very clever. It just melts into its environment, which i guess is the idea. The views are great and the monkeys are fun to watch.The rooms are well laid out, with the bathroom design being very clever - they all face... More

The hotel built into the rock is amazing and very beautiful, the views are stunning, we woke up at 530 one morning and drank our tea on the balcony and had 3 monkey families with their little babies playing right in front us, it was so much fun! The breakfast buffet had loads of choices and was delicious. The view... More

We booked this place through its official website, we only booked a superior room in the beginning, later we emailed and asked to pay to upgrade to a luxury room. They replied no problem and we can pay upon check in. When we do the check in they said the luxury room is not available and that they gave us... More

This was our second hotel in Sri Lanka and we were extremely fortunate to have two wonderful evenings and days here. Nestled into the mountain rock and overlooking Lake Kandalama, the hotel is an extension of the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Jungle trees, vine, and plants embrace the building and the grey langurs and macaques swing through the... More
