“A beautiful hotel with fantasic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We spent a couple of nights at Amaara Sky on our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. It is a new hotel and as such everything is new and of good quality. The Suite room we stayed in was very comfortable, quiet, with loads of space and great views. The service and food was excellent. The staff were attentive and always there to assist or just tell us about the area and the country. The hotel is within walking distance to the town, albeit a good uphill walk on the way back! In conclusion - a great place and highly recommended

We stayed for two nights with my family during new year time (April). it is a great location and friendly and helpful staff. every detail had been looked into, to make the guest comfortable.
it was lovely to have meals outdoors in the patio with super view. and food was excellent.Specially the traditional sweet meats which we make during Sri lankan New year was served to make homely.
we had a very relaxing holiday. rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable.will recommend for any one whose looking for complete relaxation...........................

A stunning and convenient location to base oneself to explore this ancient city. The warm and friendly service, great food, spa treatment and well appointed rooms quickly makes one forget the hustle and bustle of the crowded city. Lovely property and will recommend any time.

The Amaara Sky was an absolutely amazing stay. It's location was incredibly convenient, giving us easy access to the city centre of Kandy, but also just far enough to give us absolute peace and quiet for when we were relaxing on the balcony of the hotel. The views were spectacular.

The food at the hotel was off the scales in terms of it's quality. It easily made it into my top 10 spots for great food, offering diverse cuisines all done incredibly well.

The staff were very helpful and friendly as well.

Beautiful view from this hotel. Nice big rooms which were perfect for a young family and they were lovely and clean. The food in the restaurant was very average although the staff tried hard to accommodate. The spa which we hoped to use on arrival could only be described as rank.it was green with bits of skin & hair floating in it. Nice! The 3/F where the spa is located isn't safe for small children so don't let your kids go up by themselves. Our driver told us that his accommodation provided by the hotel wasn't clean and that it generally wasn't a good place to stay. Don't think his company will be recommending the hotel. Would consider this as a 2 star hotel.

Thank you very much for your review. The Amaara Spa in the Sky is a small treatment facility for our guests to relax and unwind after a busy day of exploring our beautiful country. I shall inquire about the cleanliness of the Spa, i can assure you this is not a frequent occurrence. Your feedback is very important to us, thank you.

Located in the more affluent hills of Kandy the Amaara Sky Hotel is just the boutique hotel if you are looking for one.
The location , rooms , staff , breath taking views , the fantastic cusine , tranquility , spa treatment & more , this hotel has all that you can ask for.
My stay was very short , I will certainly go back for a longer stay , I recommend that you do at least 2 nites.
The staff was very welcoming & the chef was so accommodating & made me the best Sri Lankan food for lunch. Don't miss out on a spa treatment while you are there...it was simply magic.
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality & look forward for my next stay at the Amaara Sky.

Room Tip: Suite room is the best value for money

I loved the location which gives visitors an awesome view of the city of Kandy down below. The service is very welcoming and courteous and the food is delicious. A great place to spend a quiet evening after a bustling day in the the city.
The rooms and en suite bathrooms are very comfortable and very clean.
And don't forget to be pampered in the Spa and the Jacuzzi!
