We stayed here for 4 days, and it’s probably the most unique hotel I’ve ever stayed in. It’s almost invisible from a distance; it blends in so well to its jungle and cliff surrounds. The service was lovely and we checked in at the café/pool area that overlooks the lovely lake and jungle areas. The entire hotel ‘plays’ constantly with
We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We enjoyed our walks in the grounds, swimming in the pools and the ride on Monica, the elephant. We would love to return!
We spent our first 3 nights at the Heritance Kandalama just outside Dambulla. The setting of the hotel is fantastic, with views of the lake and the surrounding jungle. We would love to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Heritance Kandalama is shaped like the outspread wings of a bird, following the line of the cliff from which it seems to emerge. The hotel is a staggering 1km from end to end, and rises up seven floors, yet appears to be a perfectly natural extension of the mountainside. The flat roof and timber pillars support a screen of vegetation that attracts local wildlife. The abundance of real-life animals around the hotel is complemented by wonderful large-scale sculptures within it. A metal owl is suspended outside the main restaurant; wooden elephants inhabit the lounge; a stone cobra uncoils along the terrace overlooking the infinity pool.
