Stayed at Amaya Hills for one night, the view as stated by everyone else that has visited was just fantastic. Our room was lovely, on arrival we got given a herbal tea and jaggery and was shown to our room. Later we received a welcome gift of a fruit bowl and a box of chocolates!! How nice. The pool was...

My friends and I booked 3 nights at Amaya Hills recently and the experience, while not completely terrible, wasn't fantastic either. For starters, it was the Sinhalese New Year over the weekend we were staying (avoid at all costs) and the resort was absolutely heaving with people, including a cricket team of 14 year old boys that descended upon the...

An approximate 10 minute minibus journey, from Kandy, along a steep winding road and you arrive at the Amaya Hills Hotel. The hotel has a stunning location, with breathtaking views overlooking Kandy. Our room was large and well appointed, small balcony, lovely to sit and appreciate the scenery. The restaurant was buffet style, with a good variety of food and... More

This hotel has the potential to be truly fantastic. It has the location with a stunning view, a well designed facility, so much potential. To start with, the pool, it is Ice Cold, with a "Once-Was" pool bar that now just looks sad and empty, and a pool area that leaves standing puddles to collect dirt and grime. The rooms... More

Situated midst the Hantana mountain range, this hotel boasts of the Sri Lankan hospitality at its best. Splendid views all round together with the calm and quiet neighborhood away from the hassle of city life and the cool climate brought a welcoming change to our busy work schedules. A very relaxing property for anyone who would prefer to have a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Sri Lankan new year period. Although it's a good 20-25 minute drive from the centre of Kandy, it's definitely worth it for the views! There are about 100 rooms, but you don't get the vibe like it is a big generic hotel. The hotel had an included buffet breakfast that was really... More

We did not stay in this hotel, but drove up to the resort to enjoy a day at the pool, have a meal & a Ayurvedic spa treatment. The drive up was spectacular. Winding roads leading up to a true paradise oasis. Stunning views, excellent pool, amazing architecture complimenting the hillside, even letting the natural rock flow over into the... More

We spent 2 nights in a deluxe room, and had a great time there! The room is perfect for a 4star, not big, but for sleep (u are in Kandy to see the surroundings, and not to stay in the hotelroom) is perfect. The balcony is quite small to sit there and look at the city, and defenately misses a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for my partners birthday. For the price we paid we did not expect it to be waited on as much as we were, which we found a tiny bit uncomfortable as we are not used to this. Rooms are lovely and are very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean but a little stained. Hot water... More
