We reached Ameya Hills around 7:30 PM & boy was it cold and windy. Loved the reception area, probably the nicest part of the hotel. You can sit there and stare out at the clouds and hills. The pool is unheated but the water is clean. We went for an evening swim, much to the astonishment of some Japanese tourists.... More

We didn't get the best impression that the hotel might be able to give as we arrived at night in heavy rain. However, the welcome (as in most of Sri Lanka) was warm and helpful. The rooms were very modern, clean and big enough for the four of us to share with an extra bed provided (We have two Children... More

Nice hotel. Nice surrounding. When we contact through the telephone it seems like the staff is rude. When I spoke in Sinhala they pretended as if they do not know sinhala but only English. I did not like to communicate with them. But during our stay we realized that they are not rude. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Deluxe... More

One of the good hotels I have visited. Staffs are really helpful and they have trained to real hospitality that requires in leisure industry. The view is really beautiful and hotel is located in top of a hill. Hence, I don’t think I need to make any comment about view. Just imagine how you see the environment from a top... More

Although only a short visit for one night this hotel was excellent . Very good service and selection of food from the buffet. Our room was lovely, immaculate and with fantastic views over Kandy. Wished we could have spent longer there.

We stayed here for two nights (16th/17th June) as part of our honeymoon trip of Sri Lanka/maldives. We are a well travelled couple (traveled the world for 2yrs visiting over 14 countries low to high end). We had notified them before arrival it was our honeymoon. On our arrival we were given tea refreshments in the lobby (fantastic first impressions... More

This accommodation is what you would expect from a top end resort. Excellent service, huge buffet meals, well appointed rooms. Be aware that the location is out of Kandy somewhat, up a steep hill. Tuktuks sometimes struggle with the climb. You get what you pay for, and you pay a lot.

Beautiful setting in the mountainside, lush green surroundings. Fabulous dining on the terrace! Lovely room - great room attendants, wonderful bountiful, diverse fresh market cuisine featured a buffet breakfast with endless local and international choices! Engaging station chefs and gracious servers! First night ate dinner in the banquet hall - disappointing and lackluster choices; Second buffet dinner was fantastic -... More
