Ugly place massively requiring a very enthusiastic upgrade, beautiful views of the hills at least, forced service. Difficult access. Kandy not worth it anyway. Rather stay in another town if you want nature or temple vibes. Saving grace is helga's folly. Just drink wine there!

Beautifully situated and well appointed, the hotel doesn't deserve it's five star rating. Service is slow to non existent, but monkeys on your balcony add comic relief during the rainy season when the sumptuous view is hidden by fog. 2days is too long.

Great setting, way above Kandy, some great views of the early morning mist over Kandy and the surrounding hills. On first impression appears to be a little isolated but after you relax into it and following your daily excursions it's a great place to unwind. But be aware there is nothing to do on a night unless you get a... More

Had a good time at Amaya Hills. The rooms were nice and clean and the fruit platter and chocolates along with the belimal tea on arrival a nice treat after a long drive. Good selection at breakfast buffet - though I probably would like to have seen more of the local cuisine. Quite a few monkeys around so you'll do... More

The view from the room was nice with friendly staff. We stayed two nights and would rate it 5 out of 10 apart from the hotel view. It was not peaceful, even during midnight we could hear the furniture being dragged by the staff and hearing phone ringing bell (for room service probably) all day and night in intervals. Even...

The resort had lovely views from the rooms and restaurant areas. Bathrooms could do with refurbishing as well as some of the rooms. Seems like lots of tour groups as the buffet restaurant was packed during meal times so it was busier than I would have liked. Went for a facial at the spa and had the worst experience. The... More

on arrival room wasn't satisfactory, reception staff friendliness was very poor, housekeeping staff attitude was good but poor workmanship, bathrooms only bathtubs with overhead showers making it very difficult for people with disabilities. Loads of room for improvement excellent view.

my first reaction on arrival was that this hotel doesn't do itself justice on its own website. Set high up on a hill near Kandy it really does have the most spectacular views. The rooms are quaint, with wooden flooring, and a balcony, whose door you need to keep closed to prevent the monkeys popping in and taking things! The... More

One of the best hotels in Kandy situated on a hill even though the ride up to the hotel can be very stressful because of the mountains. Excellent rooms and food. The hotel is beautiful with great staff and recommend this place very much for a stay..the only disadvantage of this hotel is distance to Kandy town as you cannot... More

This is one of the best hotel that I stayed in during my Sri Lanka trip. I reached at night and there was fog in the lobby which looked mesmerising, topping it up I got a balky view room which was very cozy and clean. Nice service and beautiful location. Will stay there when I go to Sri Lanka again.
