High expectations as we arrived to a wonderful view and very friendly staff but that soon turned to disappointment as we were shown our room. Offered an "upgrade" to a suite (just a regular room with a small sitting area) was a surprise as we required 3 separate beds. However, the 3 beds weren't provided, they then wanted an extra...

Spent two nights here, way up in the hills above the town, for our 10th anniversary, with our son and his girlfriend, and we got upgraded on arrival to the bungalow, which is a short walk/shuttle bus down from the main hotel. Not sure if it was the hotel or our travel company that arranged the upgrade, but it was...

Amaya Hills is breathtakingly beautiful with it's views of the hills surrounding Kandy. The food is excellent both for a la carte and the buffet served nightly. Our main disappointment was our room which didn't have a balcony with a view and also dinner is served at 7.30pm. We were placed in one of the less popular back rooms overlooking...

One of the worst experiences I had so far. The hotel is extremely dirty everywhere (lobby, restaurant, staircases, etc). We booked a superior room, 208 euros per night with breakfast. The room was filthy, we found a chewing gum hanging from the picture above the bed. The bathroom was disgusting: long black thick hair everywhere (including on the 2 and...

This is my Honeymoon hotel so we will never forget this place. Food is excellent with wide choices. The hotel is located on a mountain with great natural surroundings. The rooms have a great view with balcony, and ample of fresh air. Staff were very warm and welcoming. Recommend for any traveler who visit Kandy.

The hotel is in a spectacular location with great views over the hills. The rooms however are not great, smallish in size, with a very compact bathroom. The air conditioning was a little inconsistent and struggled to keep the room cool through the night. The buffet looks stunning, but the quality of food was only ok.
