“Very good property in Kandy for a relaxed stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

i was privileged to stay at this hotel with my parents..the cleanliness and the room with many amenities was simply amazing! The staff so friendly that it really is a more personalized stay. The pictures and drawings done were stunning and really adds colour to the hotel. If you are looking for a private personalized good relaxed stay in Kandy then this is what you are looking for!! no rush or continuous noise its a great place to just simply relax maybe after a tiring tour. Thank you to the ASH team!!

This was our first visit to the ASH and we were taken by complete surprise by the wonderful views and friendly staff. Everyone was so eager to please and assist us, and the welcome of flower petals on our bed, spelling out our names was such a wonderful surprise.

The staff was so assisting and the food was delicious!

Room Tip: Very close proximity to travel in to Kandy town and The Temple.

When I had to stay in Kandy for a meeting with my computer consultant, I tried the recently opened Amaara Sky Hotel. It’s just an 8-minute three-wheeler ride up hill from the station, with kerb side entrance and bright and spacious lobby. The brightness comes from the broad, panoramic-view glass windows that let light flood in, plus walls hung with colourful oil paintings by talented Sri Lankan artists. We were offered an intriguing welcome drink of mint and lime, given our room keys and shown to the lift. Mine was a deluxe room (201) on the second floor; spacious and with a desk with all necessary power points ideal for work. The bathroom was big and fun with chequered black and white tiles and a shower that delivered the right mix of hot & cold water. I had a super night’s rest in the king size bed (six pillows!) and it was only in the morning as I flung open the curtains that I appreciated what a wonderful view of Kandy and the surrounding hills awaited me. Inspiring. From the other side of the room, there was a view of Kandy lake and the Temple of the Tooth. There was a kettle and tea bags so I made bed tea myself before having breakfast on the hotel’s terrace with its view of the town. Breakfast began with possibly the best fruit platter (nine different fruits) I have ever had in a hotel. Unfortunately I had omitted to order the Sri Lankan breakfast (curry) in advance the night before, but the scrambled egg came with lots of bacon and was jolly good. Dinner the night before had been wholesome tourist fare with the most expensive item (which I had; only Rs1,400) being a pair of delicious lamb chops. My consultant colleague had a standard twin-bedded room (203) that also had some lively paintings adorning its walls, and he was very happy with it. Although we were on business (and managed to get everything done), Amaara Sky seems to be efficiently geared for tourists whether staying for one night or basing themselves in Kandy for a week and touring from there. It’s a welcome, bright, clean and cheerful addition to Kandy’s hostelries.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are spacious & have super views.

A beautifully situated hotel on a ridge between two valleys. The views from our balcony were quite stunning. This modern hotel has recently been converted from a large family residence and although the decor and furnishing are state of the art, there were numerous minor but annoying omissions: for example, not a single hairdryer to be had in the whole hotel: no phone connection to the reception desk and a mini-bar containing a single, elderly bottle of soda water! The bar appeared completely empty - of both people and drinks. The menu was limited, but the food was excellent. Service was friendly, but very slow, despite the fact that at times we were the only guests. The overall impression received was of a hotel which is just "finding its feet". The management has clearly set itself very high standards, but does not yet seem to have the experience or resources to meet these. I am sure that by this time next year this will be a wonderful place to stay.

We happened to stay at Amaara during our official hotel visits to Kandy, as everyone commented everything is perfect. The service, staff they made our stay was memorable. Recommend to anyone who plan to visit Kandy. Stay the luxurious way at the sky..!

Room Tip: As every one commented the best room is the penthouse with the marvelous view and second best option...

The location is great if you are seeking a place from the city life and hot weather. It's a pretty new hotel - less than a year so it's in great shape. I stayed for one night and it was great. The front staff was friendly. The rooms are neat and clean. The food we ordered was great. Breakfast was very good as well. Would recommend this hotel for couples,family or business.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not facing the road.

The service is the best but not bothersome. Well run and set up for a non crowded luxury experience. I thoughts the rooms were clean, updated and had every convenience available. If you are looking for top notch service and rooms this is the place to go. Will return for sure.
