I had been here on my honeymoon. It was the most amazing hotels we stayed in during our trip. I wished i could have stayed there for a longer period of time. The hotel is spread across several acres with lush greenery around and the lake embracing the property.

The Amaya Lake hotel reminded me of Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. The hotel is located in a tranquil area of Damnulla, right on a lovely lake. There a few activities which you can do such as canoeing but no swimming. You have however an amazing pool in the hotel which has a bar and the pool attendants are very friendly... More

We have had the pleasure of visiting Amaya Lake at Dambulla annually for several years now. Although I did not think it would be possible, this hotel appears to get better each year. The idyllic location is an instant attraction to any nature lover; the lakeside views are stunning and there is plenty on offer in terms of birdlife. The... More

This was our third visit to Amaya Lake. If you are looking for a place to relax with the nature, Amaya Lake is the best. It’s a magnificent area with the lake by view and lovely green, well maintained surroundings. The staff is extremely friendly and very accommodative. Clean rooms and good food. A special thanks to Ms. Priyanthi Katulande... More

It was a very good experience. Food was OK. Pool is large and enjoyable. Although the hotel is situated in a dry zone, breeze from the lake is relaxing. Rooms are a bit old and in need of an upgrading.

Completely satisfied with hospitality, rooms, food and the geographical beauty of this amazing place.. It consists with a huge playgroung which facilitates sports and other out bound activities.. The tree house zone which is located in the back near the lake is another attractive spot and all together gives an astonishing pleasure to the customers..
