We stayed at Amaya Hills to get a little bit of luxury after staying in a less desirable hotel in Kandy for two nights. The room was very well appointed and had a nice balcony with beautiful views down into the valley. The pool area was quite nice as well. Tip: If you want to avoid yet another buffet, just...

I have been to Kandy numerous times, but I have never experienced what it has to offer like I experienced it last week at Amaya Hills. The location and the view is definitely the most beautiful I have seen. Located on a hill and 180 degree view of the mountains and the city itself is ideal for photography. The hotel...

Luckily for the hotel their spectacular location more then made up for the lack of services in the hotel. Avoid eating food. Take Tuktuk to town instead. Breakfast is ok if you are selective. Most of staff struggled with English but you eventually get you want. Lack of attentiveness frustrating but stunning views compensated for this.
