Spent part of my our honeymoon here and thought it just wonderful. We stayed at a number of hotels in Sri Lanka and some were more obviously luxurious but the Kandalama had a unique blend which made it wonderful. We had been recommended to go by someone who had celebrated their marriage at the hotel and we were not disappointed. We love wildlife and certainly this is a hotel which shares its space with the original inhabitants of the area.
The staff were unfailingly helpful and pleasant. The food was good and just sitting on the balcony looking out towards Sigiriya with wildlife all around (and sometimes in) the room was amazing!.
I would certainly recommend the hotel and of all the places we stayed, all of which had charm, uniqueness and often luxury this is the hotel we think of most.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Heritance Kandalama is shaped like the outspread wings of a bird, following the line of the cliff from which it seems to emerge. The hotel is a staggering 1km from end to end, and rises up seven floors, yet appears to be a perfectly natural extension of the mountainside. The flat roof and timber pillars support a screen of vegetation that attracts local wildlife. The abundance of real-life animals around the hotel is complemented by wonderful large-scale sculptures within it. A metal owl is suspended outside the main restaurant; wooden elephants inhabit the lounge; a stone cobra uncoils along the terrace overlooking the infinity pool. However, while focusing on highlighting its enchanting natural surroundings, our luxury resort in Sri Lanka gives priority to providing its guests with the finest comforts and service. ... more less
