Decent place to stay, the bathrooms could use some TLC. Beautiful grounds. Dinner buffet had a good variety but think it was overpriced for the quality. Breakfast buffet was priced at USD15pp which seemed steep for a restaurant in Sri Lanka. Service was great - everyone was very helpful.

The customer service from the evening managers was not expected for Sri Lanka. I upgraded to this resort (For significant increase in premium) from another resort for some complimentary activities that were included, especially the bird watching. I was here only for 1 evening and when I arrived, they told me bird watching was booked by a special group, not... More

We stayed at Amaya Lake for 2 nights. We loved that wonderful setting with a feeling in a middle of a jungle. There were few things, you may let down. Friendly staff, food and the location will pull you up again. Worm welcome at the spacious lobby and the front desk attend quickly on our arrival. Some of the rooms... More

The hotel utilises the magnificent grounds on the lake to full advantage. The cabins are tastefully dispersed across the footprint and the pool, restaurant and Lobby spaces are very good. This is a very good property that could be great. There were no glasses in our room on arrival and it is mystifying why in the ante-room there are no... More

Stayed at this hotel in Jan of 2016 for two nights and I must say that the room and facities were not up to the mark for the price you are paying. Customer service of the managers at the front desk is not to a standard that I have seen in Sri lanka before very unhelpful and never smile. On... More

We had a great time. We were alone at the pools most of the time and didn't really see any of the large tourist groups that were coming in and out at night. A truly great experience We could go see the birds around the lake at sunset and walk around the impressive grounds. We booked a bbq night for... More

We stayed at Amaya Lake Resort for 4 nights 6 weeks into an 8 week Asian experience. Our first impressions were "what a wonderful setting with ample space, trees and a lake view". We also found that, if you have transport, it is well located in the cultural centre of Sri Lanka. There is so much to see within a... More
