Arriving there, we couldn't believe the views over Kandy. From the reception , pool and room , there were great. Service is good, and prices of food and drinks was fair. This hotel is big, and on the tour coach circuit. Whilst the restaurant is big and well run, the buffet dinner was not an enjoyable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Stayed for 3 nights in March. Cut the trip short by a day as the hotel was not convenient or prepared for parties outside of tour groups. If you see Amaya Hills on your tour group itinerary and are visiting for a night it will be worth it for the stunning views. Beyond that it just did not work for... More

We stayed here as part of an Explore group and the hotel has a spectacular location in the hills above Kandy. Nice room with balcony to enjoy the view. It is a huge place so you're just one of hundreds of package tourists being bussed in and out ...but a good resting place to visit the area. Much better up... More

My family stayed here for two nights while visiting Sri Lanka. The first thing you'll notice here is the view. The resort overlooks the hills surrounding Kandy and it's really an incredible view. Don't miss the sunsets. The rooms here were very clean and well maintained. The entire staff was well trained and friendly. Wifi is available in the lobby... More

Nestled on the mountains in the Nuwera district is the fantastic hotel known as Amaya hills. The minute you enter the hotel you are greeted not only by fantastic reception team but also a spectacular view of the mountain range overlooking the city of kandy... Whilst there is no wifi one should not spend most of their life in wifi... More

Like many larger Sri Lankan hotels, the road leading up to Amaya Hills was long, narrow, winding and in need of attention if anything bigger than a tuktuk is to use it - but even large coaches seemed to manage somehow. At least the view of Kandy from the hotel's hillside location made the exciting arrival worth while. Arrived with... More

Beautiful location; rustic but luxurious hotel. The view is like no other, especially in the mornings when mist still cloaks the mountains. The food was lovely, we only wish we could have stayed for longer! Our two evenings here passed far too quickly.

Nice resort-style hotel in the hills above Kandy. We were 3 friends travelling and had a triple. It was quite expensive and the room was quite small with the extra bed making space very tight, so wouldn't do it that way again. Also our rooms were in a side wing past the pool on a low floor that faced the... More

We stayed at the Amaya Hills for the last three days of our recent holiday in Sri Lanka. The setting is beautiful - about half an hour drive above Kandy. Our room had a superb view with an extremely comfortable bed, a lovely clean bathroom, and tucked away in the annex we were not disturbed by other travellers. The staff... More
