Amaara Sky Hotel Kandy
Ranked #15 of 58 Hotels in Kandy
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Amaara Sky was an absolutely amazing stay. It's location was incredibly convenient, giving us easy access to the city centre of Kandy, but also just far enough to give us absolute peace and quiet for when we were relaxing on the balcony of the hotel. The views were spectacular.

The food at the hotel was off the scales in terms of it's quality. It easily made it into my top 10 spots for great food, offering diverse cuisines all done incredibly well.

The staff were very helpful and friendly as well.

Beautiful view from this hotel. Nice big rooms which were perfect for a young family and they were lovely and clean. The food in the restaurant was very average although the staff tried hard to accommodate. The spa which we hoped to use on arrival could only be described as rank.it was green with bits of skin & hair floating in it. Nice! The 3/F where the spa is located isn't safe for small children so don't let your kids go up by themselves. Our driver told us that his accommodation provided by the hotel wasn't clean and that it generally wasn't a good place to stay. Don't think his company will be recommending the hotel. Would consider this as a 2 star hotel.

Thank you very much for your review. The Amaara Spa in the Sky is a small treatment facility for our guests to relax and unwind after a busy day of exploring our beautiful country. I shall inquire about the cleanliness of the Spa, i can assure you this is not a frequent occurrence. Your feedback is very important to us, thank you.

Located in the more affluent hills of Kandy the Amaara Sky Hotel is just the boutique hotel if you are looking for one.
The location , rooms , staff , breath taking views , the fantastic cusine , tranquility , spa treatment & more , this hotel has all that you can ask for.
My stay was very short , I will certainly go back for a longer stay , I recommend that you do at least 2 nites.
The staff was very welcoming & the chef was so accommodating & made me the best Sri Lankan food for lunch. Don't miss out on a spa treatment while you are there...it was simply magic.
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality & look forward for my next stay at the Amaara Sky.

Room Tip: Suite room is the best value for money

I loved the location which gives visitors an awesome view of the city of Kandy down below. The service is very welcoming and courteous and the food is delicious. A great place to spend a quiet evening after a bustling day in the the city.
The rooms and en suite bathrooms are very comfortable and very clean.
And don't forget to be pampered in the Spa and the Jacuzzi!

My wife and I accompanied by her sister and brother-in-law had a great time in Sri Lanka from 23 to 30 March 2013. In searching for a hotel in Kandy, we chanced across Amaara Sky Hotel and learnt that it was owned by a reputable & established Sri Lankan firm in the travel industry. After reading Sri Lankan press report on the firm, we entrusted it to arrange our 8-day land itinerary. We had a good vehicle and safe driver who brought us to Habarana, Anuradhapura, Avukana Buddha, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Kandy(side trip to Nuwara Eliya), Colombo and Bentota. At Kandy, Amaara Sky Hotel exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were clean and fresh. The restaurant staff and chef were simply great. They were happy to serve and accommodated our requests even changing ingredients to suit our preference. More importantly, the food was superb and we did not long for our regular home cooking. The serene atmosphere of the hotel and surroundings, the beautiful scenery from the restaurant and outdoor dining area and the general cleanliness of the whole area all add up to a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

Nice location on the hill and nice view also .
There was a little humidity smell in bathroom .
You should be in the hotel befor 11:00 at night so you can not go for night life activities .
The staffs were good and helpful.
It is about 15 min walking to kandy lake and 150 rupees with tuktuk from hotel .
The hotel is almost new so it is a little difficult for taxi drivers to find the location easily
I have a backache so I slept in the floor cause the bedroom was so smooth with no spinal support for me .

Amaara has a very tranquil atmosphere and the staff there were delightful. The place is beautiful, it is perfect for a relaxing weekend with friends, family and loved ones. The scenery is picturesque with views beyond the grounds of Amaara that have your breath taken. The food was delicious, my personal favourite being the prawn submarine and the palatable tiramisu. I highly recommend this hotel to those looking to escape the stress that everyday life casts upon them.
