We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights and what a pleasant experience. The huge lobby area with welcoming seating and open air was so invitingly different. Although it was very busy during the stay it is spacious enough in the restaurant area to not feel crowded. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The... More

This hotel is stylish and modern yet also full of character. I loved the huge open plan reception, restaurant and bar area that is open to the gardens with a view across the swimming pool to the lake. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the bathroom is huge, they are in bungalows spread through the lovely grounds. The... More

This hotel is exquisitely set and is very relaxed and tranquil - it is the perfect place to chill out and enjoy the wildlife. It is a good few kilometers outside of Dambulla (850 rupees in a tuk tuk). The rooms are very nice and the pool area is great. While the breakfast if very good, the evening meal selection... More

Did a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka and stayed at 5 hotels so I got an idea of different types and standards. By far this gem of a hotel was my favourite. From the warm welcome with drinks and face towels, the exceptional customer service, the elegant and calm pool to the beautiful grounds and lake this place will... More

By the time you turn off and drive up to the hotel from Dambulla you are quite tired after a rather long journey so it is nice to be welcomed by smiling faces a hot towel and a long cold drink. Amaya Lake is a well laid out hotel with individual villa style accommodation to ensure the privacy of the... More

We stayed at Amaya Lake for one night (unfortunately!) and were really surprised! We had read mixed reviews and were a little nervous beforehand but we shouldn't have been worried at all. We arrived to a really warm welcome and complimentary drinks. The lobby and swimming pool area are beautiful - the best pool we had seen on all our... More

Lovely hotel grounds, fantastic pool and gardens, good tennis court. Rooms a little dated, but spacious and quiet. I believe this hotel, along with a lot of others cater for large coach parties, as such they dish up very similar buffets every night. It's a pity that a bit more focus is not given to creating a la carte specials,... More
