“Nice staff and good location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

One night visit in the middle of July. Staff was very polite and speedy service. Room was clean, but maybe a bit outdated. Location is on a mountain with beautiful view from room window.

We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. Again, very fast and polite service. I would not hesitate to come back.

My wife and I have jus returned from Sri Lanka and we stayed a couple of nights at he Amaara Sky hotel. It has a great view of the city, perched on the hill overlooking Kandy. The food is average and a bit limited. The room was quite big with a balcony and furniture was basic. Maria at the reception was helpful. Don't waste your time with the massage, it's not worth it

Amaara sky has great views over Kandy as it is located high up a hill over looking the city. A round trip into the city was 600 rupees and only takes around 8 mins. Staff are very friendly and the room clean and spacious. We didn't have dinner, breakfast was a refreshing change the various buffets we have had, started with a fruit plate followed by eggs etc and a bread and pastry basket. Nothing to make it stand out from other hotels apart from the view. We only stayed 1 night. Couple of observations our room only had a shower, the TV is over complicated but there are DVDs you can borrow. We were woken a few times through night by barking dogs as one side of the hotel is next to the rood

The Amaara Sky is aptly named. Its elevation, perched on a steep, wooded hillside, providing an almost vertical view of the valley below, gives one the feeling of being, quite literally, in the sky. The hotel's dramatic situation and awesome views alone would likely justify a favourable review, but we found that the hotel's staff backed up the splendour of its setting with a high level of service throughout our stay. On our arrival we were extended a warm and sincere welcome, and were ultimately accommodated in the two floor penthouse apartment, a luxurious and expansive suite of two double beds, two sizeable bathrooms, and - on the lower floor - a large sitting and dining area supplied with a selection of fresh fruits and a very well stocked mini-bar. The suite came with a balcony from which you could savour the view of rooftops and trees gently cascading into the valley below. This, in short, was luxury beyond anything I'd hitherto known or experienced. That my girlfriend's name was laid out in petals on the bed as a welcome was a lovely, and greatly appreciated, touch by which I was genuinely moved. You really are made to feel very, very special at the Amaara Sky. Both the evening meal, and breakfast, were of fine quality and - it must be said - quantity. You will not go hungry here. Overall, this hotel offers such a bundle of positives in its setting, its service and its food, that I've no hesitation in declaring the Amaara Sky the best hotel I've ever stayed at.

Our stay at Amaara Sky was incredible. We were 5 and stayed at the penthouse. wow...Luxury at its best. It is a small hotel though. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thank you all.

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.
