Great location with beautiful views of the forest from the rooms and a great view of the lake from the poolside dinning area. Moon rise over the hills was spectacular; the absence of dwellings around the lake contributed to the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Staff were very welcoming. Food was good with a mixture of Western and local dishes. Very... More

my wife and I stayed two nights and almost three days at this delightful hotel which has many features that commend it to those who wish to enjoy the serenity of the surrounding jungle and lake. Our practice for many years has been to stay at the large 300+ room Kandalama Hotel designed and executed by the well known Asian... More

We spent 2 nights at Lake Lodge and had a memorable stay. Upon arrival, we were very warmly welcomed by the manager and his staff (including the 2 resident tortoises). We were offered cold towels and coconuts for our immediate refreshment, with Kandalama lake as a lovely backdrop. The staff were attentive and accommodating; the chef definitely seemed to take...

We've spent 2 nights in this small and very nice hotel: the location is fabulous with lake view in the middle of the bush, the food is excellent and the service very warm.

We did not have a very high expectation on the accommodation that we were going to stay in Kandalama. After all, it is not a big city such as Colombo. As long as the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and it was not a terrible service, we would be satisfied. I was wrong. From the first dinner that... More

Our two families have just returned from a trip to Sri Lanka. This was our second destination and we couldn't believe our luck. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and private. The food was spectacular and as Lake Lodge is small the service was individualised. Thankyou to Michel, Hans, Ranjith, Anoj, and Ravi, as well as the rest of the team.... More
