Sri Lanka is indeed a splendid island and Amaya Hills hotel on the top of the mountain in Kandy made the experience there even more exciting. Of course, whoever wants to go there and have a joyful time, should be aware that he has a really good and friendly guide. Me and my wife were quite lucky in this part,... More

Having stayed at the Amaya Lakes we expected this to be of the same quality. However, it was really bad. Room: We were three of us and booked accordingly. The room was small, after an 'upgrade'. No place to move around once we were in the room. Just outside the room were construction pieces, though no construction in evidence. Restaurant:... More

The rooms are great and the view is amazing!! We were here for my mom's birthday and the hotel decorated the bed and arranged a cake for dinner!! It's a pity there is no wifi in the rooms but there is in the lobby! It is a nice quiet spot far away from the busy city and the view is... More

The hotel is nestled between the mountains, with dramatic views of Kandy city. We loved the open air lobby , similar to some resorts in Bali. Service as nice and we were upgraded to a junior suite on arrival. The only issue was that the breakfast was the same on all the days, and we got a bit bored of... More

We stayed at the Amaya hills for 2 nights. Breathtaking views of Kandy from the restaurant and the deluxe rooms. the standard rooms face the back of the hill. Its a long winding road to get to the hotel from the main road. Breakfast and dinner buffet is quite extensive and worth the money. Lovely pool, decent gym and squash... More

From A to Z everything in this hotel was excellent, the friendly staff, the helpful reception / front office staff, the rooms, a variety of TV channels, nice pool and a wide range in the breakfast. I must say about the herbal massages they offer is outstanding. just try one and its value is a million bucks.
