Best things about this hotel are the pool and terrace (complete with table tennis) and fantastic views. It is let down by the poor quality food and, during our stay at least, the fact that noise carries around the hotel when there are particularly noisy guests/large groups. These two issues really undermined our stay which was a shame as it... More

High expectations as we arrived to a wonderful view and very friendly staff but that soon turned to disappointment as we were shown our room. Offered an "upgrade" to a suite (just a regular room with a small sitting area) was a surprise as we required 3 separate beds. However, the 3 beds weren't provided, they then wanted an extra...

Spent two nights here, way up in the hills above the town, for our 10th anniversary, with our son and his girlfriend, and we got upgraded on arrival to the bungalow, which is a short walk/shuttle bus down from the main hotel. Not sure if it was the hotel or our travel company that arranged the upgrade, but it was... More

Amaya Hills is breathtakingly beautiful with it's views of the hills surrounding Kandy. The food is excellent both for a la carte and the buffet served nightly. Our main disappointment was our room which didn't have a balcony with a view and also dinner is served at 7.30pm. We were placed in one of the less popular back rooms overlooking... More

One of the worst experiences I had so far. The hotel is extremely dirty everywhere (lobby, restaurant, staircases, etc). We booked a superior room, 208 euros per night with breakfast. The room was filthy, we found a chewing gum hanging from the picture above the bed. The bathroom was disgusting: long black thick hair everywhere (including on the 2 and... More

This is my Honeymoon hotel so we will never forget this place. Food is excellent with wide choices. The hotel is located on a mountain with great natural surroundings. The rooms have a great view with balcony, and ample of fresh air. Staff were very warm and welcoming. Recommend for any traveler who visit Kandy.

The hotel is in a spectacular location with great views over the hills. The rooms however are not great, smallish in size, with a very compact bathroom. The air conditioning was a little inconsistent and struggled to keep the room cool through the night. The buffet looks stunning, but the quality of food was only ok.

Set in the steep mountains of kandy , Amaya hills is an ideal place to stay for couples, families or guests visiting solo. Reaching the hotel is a bit difficult as the signs are kept to a minimum. The rooms were splendid and the suite we stayed in was equipped with bath robes, shavers and other facilities to make our... More
