Myself and and my wife together with a group of friends stayed at Amaya Signature 3 nights in August, Everything about this place was so remarkable.It definitely is a huge change from Culture Club days,Uunder the new branding and management things have improved in every aspect.
Rooms were very clean and comfortable, Food was excellent, All the staff from the reception to the buggy drivers were extremely cordial, Very impressed with the Covid 19 precautions that were in place like wearing masks, provision of sanitizer, monitoring body temperature everyday, keeping of the social distance , especially during meal times. Entire property was very well manicured and kept beautiful.
Our best wishes to the GM,Executive Chef and each and every one of the team who made our stay an exceptionally pleasant one.

Superb experience..! Simply one of the best trips and places in Dambulla. Hotel is just next to the Lake. Had no issue in access.
Very calm, quiet and we enjoyed every single minute. They had lot of space to walk around, you can go for a jog as well. Paths are nicely lit in the night, they operate the travel carts for anyone who needs assistance.
Food was great. Had couple of pools, the pool by the bar was very nice.
Staff was great. Rooms were very spacious and had all the comforts.

This is a beautiful location for a quiet , relaxing holiday. The first point of welcome by the Buggy driver Ranjith was excellent - quick with the baggage & parking. Reception was good , adhereing to Covid health guidelines .
The chalets were situated amidst the trees & its a beautiful setting.
The room & the bath room was quite big but had a problem with the Jacuzzi in the bathroom with a tap leaking & flooding the bathroom floor but the staff was quick & very helpful to shift us to another room. But it appeared even that room had a similar problem but managed with the room section staff , particularly Janaka cleaning and mopping the floor & went out of the way to make us comfortable.
I think some of the pipes etc needs to be replaced , problems perhaps due to the hotel being kept closed for a considerable period due to the Covid pandemic.
The food was alright but nothing exceptional , Chef Alagiyawanna was very helpful & would always inquire into any special preferences that we require. The restaurant staff were very efficient - Asst.restaurant Manager Aruna & the stewrd Roshan & the two stewardesses on duty on both days - all very good.
The Bartender Jayaratne was also very good with his recommendations of the wines & cocktails. Overall staff is excellent & helpful.

While this was likely once a very nice and luxurious hotel, it was extremely run down at our recent stay in their luxury suite. The showers were full of mould and the couch had stains all over it. The room was musty. The Christmas buffet was the most extensive buffet extending into multiple rooms and levels with absolutely nothing appetizing to eat (not to mention the elderly guest who roamed the buffet with a spoon tasting from each dish..ugh). Not necessarily the hotels fault but when we advised them of it, they showed concern but no actions were taken. Based on our experience, I would not recommend a stay here at this time.

I and my family really enjoyed our stay at Amaya Signature last weekend. Meals are so tasty and delicious. There were a lot of varieties to choose at the buffet. If you are a vegetarian or srilankan food lover or meat lover, nothing to worry, you have lot of choices to choose. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is very calm and suitable for a relaxed stay and family get. Near the Kandalama lake you will feel free.
If you like, you can play cricket, badminton, tennis, carom and they provide all facilities.
We traveled post covid-19 curfew period and we can satisfied about their health security measures that they have taken.

Had a wonderful staying at Amaya Signature.
Special thanks to Micheal, (Chef) Chinthana and Jude for everything including the delicious cake for our anniversary. The hotel staff is very friendly and nice. Amazing customer service. Actually they exceeded our expectations.
The food was excellent (as always in Amaya chain). Had a buffet with quite a large variety of items, but of course, the staff was always very careful when serving their guests. The rooms were large, spacious, and very clean which was very impressive.
The bathroom was also large with a jacuzzi and a separate shower room. The pool was also big and clean. The hotel is just by the Kandalama Laka. Definitely coming back! Highly recommended to anyone looking to spend some nice time relaxing. Thanks again.

Originally my family and I were staying in the Amaya Lake Deluxe Room but found a lot of shortcoming in the room and the cleanliness. The staff did quick work to address the issues and upgraded us to a fantastic room at Amaya Signature. We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed everything from the excellent meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner and the service in which they addressed any ask we raised. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely lake and nearly 50 acres of greenery which was very relaxing! I would return to the hotel without hesitation and recommend it to any of my friends and family!

Terrific place. Larger than the other hotels that we visited but fact that we had our own little bungalow with a great balcony and wonderful was nice - and peaceful. Really appreciated it after the heat of Sri Lanka and after climbing the rock at Sigiria. We had a half day vacation from our vacation at this place -- lovely pool. The buffet breakfast and dinner was terrific and the staff helpful and friendly. Liked the fact that they served both western (which we did not eat) and Sri Lankan food. Made to order specialties like Hoppers and Masala Chai and dosa were appreciated

We had a wonderful three nights at Anaya Lake which is set in a quiet, beautiful location with easy access to surrounding tourist sites. Food was very good and the position excellent beside the lake. Accommodation is a short walk from the eating and central area but buggies available to transport cases and those who might require a lift. We wouldn’t hesitate about returning if in the area again.

Hi. There are two areas where meals are served. The main restaurant beside the reception area serves buffet Sri Lankan fare and is pretty good and appetising. Breakfast is also served here. There is another restaurant further within the resort beside the smaller swimming pool. Here the food is Ala cart and of average standard. The ambience is nicer as it is much quieter.
