The owner of Amanda Hills is one of the most honest, hard working men I have met, and it shows in his hotel.
We had backpacked around Sri Lanka for a week and had roughed it pretty intensely, so we decided on staying at a nice place for a night to recoup. Upon arriving in Kandy, we had asked our tuk tuk driver to take us to AMAYA Hills, but for some reason he took us to Amanda Hills.
We spoke with the owner about our awkward predicament, he took no hesitation into helping us secure a place at Amaya Hills, even letting us use the internet and helping us make the phone calls, despite the fact that it was extremely late and he was obviously tired. Eventually, we decided on taking the last room they had available.
The room itself was extremely well taken care of, and is probably the only place in Sri Lanka I stayed at where I didn't find any stains on the sheets. Breakfast was wonderful, featuring both Sri Lankan and Western foods. I will add that the dining area has one of the most spectacular views of Kandy, overlooking the lake and the hills. We enjoyed some good beers on that balcony.
The owner is incredibly honest and hardworking, and actually reminded me a lot of my father. He is not out to jip you of your money, but only wants to make sure your stay in Kandy and Sri Lanka is as enjoyable as possible. His knowledge of traveling around the country is spot on, and I would recommend speaking to him if you want advice on planning the rest of your trip.
