Only downside is the path to the hotel. It's a bit hard to reach. The hotel staff welcomed us really well and the rooms were really good. The food was delicious as well. I had a leech hanging on to me after I walked around the hotel. There was a really nice view. Great fir romance and for family vacation.... More

I'm writing this review with a heavy heart as this was our honeymoon hotel 5-6 yrs back and it was the epitome of hospitality back then. Unfortunately, it is the total opposite now! We received the crappiest welcome there could ever be! The girls at the reception does not know how to smile or even be pleasant. No towels or... More

The good part of this hotel is its service including pick up from airport and hiring of a car and driver for the day. They offered these services at really good prices. The rooms themselves I would say are 2 or 3*. But it depends on why you are staying in the area, for us it was a quick over... More

I have often travelled to Kandy for work and almost always stayed at Amaya Hills. But still the place doesn't stop to charm me. It's a brilliant hotel to stay whether you in Kandy for work or pleasure. The swimming pool is really big and well maintained! The staff at the hotel is also very kind and prompt in their... More

Views are spectacular, our rooms were comfortable but the bathroom was a little musty. Food was uninspiring at both dinner & breakfast - mostly cold except for the sushi which was warm. Bar staff were attentive but all others appeared like they would rather be elsewhere (not rude, just uninterested). No wifi in the rooms.

We have been to many Sri Lankan hotels for weekend overnight stays and Amaya Hills, Kandy ranks quite high in our list of service, hospitality, food and overall experience. The staff are commendable as they really go out the extra mile for you. The food selection was good and had the right balance for veg and non veg guests. Although... More

Our stay at amaya hills was at best average. The view is stunning but the hotel staff are rude. The bar supervisor was the exception as he was kind and very professional however the 2 ladies at the front desk need to learn how to smile or atleast look like there enjoying there job. Very inattentive and make you feel... More

Amaya Hills is the perfect place to stay if you're on a honeymoon and pass by Kandy. The view is amazing and the employees are very friendly. The food in the restaurant is good if you like Sri Lanka food. We didn't tried the pool but the view from it is something else!!!
