We stayed at the Kandalama in early December for two nights as part of our tour around the cultural triangle.
This was by far the best hotel of our trip. The rooms were amazing with wonderful views across the lake to Sigiriya Rock. The monkeys running along the balconies early in the evening were great entertainment as long as your balcony door was shut!
The standard of service was excellent, the only area that wasn't up to the same standards set throughout the hotel was at the hotel's own travel desk, were they don't seem to actually give you any information unless you specifically ask.
Whilst there get your driver to drive around the lake and look back at the hotel to fully appreciate how well it blends in with it's location.
- 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
