The hotel is situated about 10km from Dambulla and overlooks Kandalama Lake. It's built into the side of a mountain and covered by lush foliege. Famed for its eco-friendly philosophy, the hotel is built on a raised platform and surrounded by rain forest.
The highlight of staying here is the feeling that you have been totally engulfed by nature in a beautiful location. Nature also exists inside the open-planned hotel, monkeys will be on your balcony on a morning. On an evening the walls will be covered in lizards and as you walk down the corridor bats fly inches above your head.
Add on all the usual facilities of a top class hotel and you have one of the most spectacular & unforgettable places you are ever likely to stay at. It was an hotel I didn't want to leave.
- 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
