Excellent in every way. We booked dulux, but they offered a suite which made us highly exited. Food location and everything is perfect. Customer care is very good and only dissopointment was buffet was not available for last day lunch. Bt comparing to other facilitiea, it is to be ignored. Hope to visit again.

When I arrived I was put off by the dated reception area and the herd of reception staff, however, on exploring this gem of a hotel one can appreciate the unique Bawa concept and design of this 1km wide hotel. Set in beautiful jungle with amazing roof terraces and plants it's really quite breathtaking. The rooms are a good size,...

It was an education in itself to be told of the architect mastermind and genius of this fantastic hotel. Nestled amongst the natural landscape and overlooking Kandamala Reservior , one could spend a good part of the day just absorbing the beauty and serenity of the place. The rooms were comfortable and very well maintained and the staff were cheerful...

We stayed at the Heritance Kandalama for 2 nights. The scenery is really nice, with jungles surrounding the hotel from every corner. The staff was really nice, and they even upgraded us to a Jaccuzi suite, which was real nice. However we can't say that we really enjoyed our stay, as the hotel felt a bit dark and gloomy. And...

From the moment we arrived we loved this hotel! Checkin involved being shown to the bar overlooking the infinity pool given a refreshing drink and signing in via an iPad. Our room was excellent! We loved the balcony with views to the lake. But the best thing was all the wildlife we saw from here. Highlights bring sea eagles, owl,...

Just the architecture of this place is worth the stay! Both the breakfast and dinner buffet was excellent. Lots of choices. Staff were very helpful. We loved the swimming pools! Again, the setting is just mind blowing. There was also some entertainment in the evenings which we enjoyed. The spa looked lovely although we didn't have any treatments. If you...

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

“Rooms nearer the infinity pool means a shorter walk to the pool, restraurents and F&B outlet, but it means a longer walk to the Spa and Gym.”
