This was one of the best boutique hotels we have stayed in Sri Lanka. We had the penthouse suite which had two bedrooms on two levels and the lay out was like a two bedroom apartment with all the amenities - one could not ask for more. The service was excellent, location was very peaceful, spa treatment and food matched everything else about the hotel.

We spent 4 nights at Amaara in Kandy. The best part of the hotel is the service indeed! And the food was the best we had during our entire trip in Sri Lanka. It was so good so I insisted to attend a cooking class with the chef there. Although it had never been part of their offers, the hotel staff arranged the class for me anyway! My husband had his birthday during the time we were there, hotel staff arranged a cake with birthday card and ' happy birthday' songs at the end of our dinner. Very much touched!!!

We would love to go back there one day, and having a pot of tea sitting out at the beautiful terrace...

We spent a couple of nights at the Amaara Sky during the new year time (April) and it was amazing. Good size room which were spotless and very comfortable, with good facilities tv, dvd player and dvd collection (collect from reception desk). The hotel is turly in the sky (on a hill) with great views. We had great service from the time we got out of the car to check in till we left, staff arranged for a tuktuk to take us into town and collect us. Returant served some of the best food we had in Sri Lanka compared to other hotels we stayed at. Staff were always very accomadating and nothing was too much trouble.

Amaara Sky is a little bit outside of town in the hills around Kandy, but downwards it's easy walkable in 15-20 minutes. Upwards a tuktuk will bring you for 200 rupees. The hotel has a great location and is best for its views over the Kandy hills. Make sure you get a room with balcony, they do not all have this. Staff is nice altough maybe a little bit too 'stiff', as is the dining room. Could do with some more cosy-ness, but hey, it's a quality hotel and most of the times they lack a little bit in atmosphere. But who cares if you get their beautiful, clean, large rooms (do take superior or deluxe, the standards are not worth it for the price difference), tv with dvd players and dvd collection (admit: that's nice sometimes during travel ;-), great breakfasts (mini croissants! mini chocolate breads!), the free of use 'jacuzzi in the sky' and again: the views!

Dear Johanes,

Thank you for your lovely review. We are in fact only 2km from the City center. Our aim is to make sure our guests get to enjoy the peaceful side of Kandy while being close enough to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city when called upon. I am glad you enjoyed the Jacuzzi located on the rooftop with a panoramic view of the landscape.

We spent a couple of nights at Amaara Sky on our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. It is a new hotel and as such everything is new and of good quality. The Suite room we stayed in was very comfortable, quiet, with loads of space and great views. The service and food was excellent. The staff were attentive and always there to assist or just tell us about the area and the country. The hotel is within walking distance to the town, albeit a good uphill walk on the way back! In conclusion - a great place and highly recommended
