Heritance Kandalama is a special find. Hidden in a forest of dense green, it’s hard to believe that this huge minimalist hotel is there. The entrance to the hotel is quite magnificent and gets you excited before you’re even in there. The pool is beautiful, with a view of Lions Rock in the distance and at the right time, buffalo drinking from the lake. The room was very clean and tidy, with a more traditional feel than the minimal design of the hotel. We had a hot tub overlooking the jungle which was great. We had a few visitors swinging from our balcony, which was amazing and didn’t bother us at all - just all part of the experience.
The food was good but we would have liked more of an intimate dining experience. Due to the size of the hotel, there is a buffet and the dining rooms are huge.
A large variety of choice. Very good.
The location and the service. The bed was comfortable
The food quality could be improved. Introduce more veggie options. Rooms can be slightly bigger with more space. The menu seems to be repetitive
lake view lobby and room, and you can see monkey outside your window in the morning. Very close to nature.
The amazing view, excellent breakfast, 3 pools with a good snack bar.
Almost nothing. Poor wifi but can't really complain.
Welcome to a very special Sri Lanka hotel. A hotel that doesnt sit on the landscape but is part of it. Where monkeys climb your balcony pillars as if they were trees, swifts nest in the corners of corridors as if they were cliffs, granite crags erupt into the sinuous white walkways. Where you can float in the infinity pool while gazing across at the Sigiriya rock fortress, the eighth wonder of the world. Welcome to Heritance Kandalama, one of the premier 5 Star hotels in Sri lanka
