We stayed here for 2 days during a tour.
You will wonder where you're going and where you are on arrival as the last part of the journey is along a dirt road!
Warm welcome was only second to the room we had. Very comfortable in size, a great bed and large bathroom.
Monkeys will greet you on your balcony, which I enjoyed a lot!!
The view is stunning! Looking out onto a lake/river/hills/jungle all at the same time and we saw 2 wonderful sunsets from our balcony.
The room was showing some signs of ageing with general wear and tear but nothing you'd complain about.
The food was delicious. We had the buffet on the 1st night and tried the A la Carte restaurant on night 2. If we're honest we thought the buffet was a little over price as we chose the 2 most expensive meals on the A la Carte menu with pudding and this came to the same price as the buffet. So we would highly recommend trying the restaurant. We were 1 of 3 couples eating there so you really did feel spoilt.
- 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. However, while focusing on highlighting its enchanting natural surroundings, our luxury resort in Sri Lanka gives priority to providing its guests with the finest comforts and service. ... more less
