10.0 Excellent
Pros: Honestly everything.
10.0 Excellent
Cons: Always a good time
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved the design of the hotel and the isolated location. Very relaxing and close to nature. The restaurant's a la carte menu was expensive but super delicious. We regret not trying the buffet! The washrooms were amazing (except for the glass door maybe). Very clean pool and facilities. Very helpful and attentive staff. We definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.
Cons: The location might be a little isolated for some people but we loved it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Virtually everything about this place was great: the staff were very attentive and polite, and we were even greeted at the front reception with a flower each! We loved the room and it was extremely comforatable with amazing views and hot water on tap. Compared to the homestays we'd stayed in this place was pure indulgence.
Cons: The hotel is a little out of the way, although it does have beautiful panoramic views from the room/pool etc. It's a shame it wasn't a little closer to Sigiriya though, as Dambulla as a town is fairly unmemorable. To be balanced, it is an excellent jump-off point for exploring other parts of Sri Lanka, so I'd probably recommend just a day or two rather than anything longterm. Additionally, we left the hotel a few times for meals etc, but in order to do this requires transportation and extra time and cost; in that regard you're at the mercy of the hotel and their comparatively expensive dining prices to those in town. Again though, the food is excellent here so I can't be too tough! Jetwing does push the environmental/ethical angle quite a bit and it is nice to see this. However, I did find out that any food not consumed is thrown away which was surprising, especially as seeing there is a shanty town approximately a mile away across the main road from the turning to the hotel. All I'd recommend is perhaps donate some of this food instead of wasting it. I know nothing is that straight forward in reality, but I'm sure a third party could distribute something without the hotel being directly involved and perhaps getting it misconstrued as a never-ending meal ticket. If not that, then at least give the staff the option of taking it home. Just a suggestion? To conclude, - and I can't believe I'm saying this, - somehow staying at the economy class places brought more satisfaction and authenticity. This is entirely subjective though and might not reflect your own requirements. Jetwing offers a premium service and it is carried out with style and finesse. I suppose I realised I was looking for Sri Lanka "warts and all" (to borrow from Cromwell), and Jetwing is, essentially, an excellent five star hotel that could be in Vietnam or Hong Kong for example.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The willingness of the hotel team to ensure our stay was perfect. Impressed with environmental management!!
Heritance Kandalama - Dambulla - Building

9.1 Excellent (4,617 reviews)
Overview Reviews
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

Of course food was great! Thank you very much !

6.7 Good
Pros: Closet in the room and bed side tables. The family that runs the business is super nice (they woke up to open the door to us at 5am) and they prepare a very yummy breakfast. Location is not great but the city itself seems to be the least important for visitors looking to be nearby Sigiriya and Dambulla Caves so fine for us. Room is at same level of street, no steps almost (only a bit noisy since it was next to the road).
Cons: Shower together with toilet and hand wash sink (many places have it like this) so this room's floor is always wet, I almost felt a couple of times. AC in the room is very strong, no way to lower it down. No AC means to spend the night sweating. No paper bin in the room. Only one multiple plug ( good thing is it has different types of plug no adapter needed).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very Clean & Spacious. Very friendly family.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Food was great, hosts were extremely hospitable and they even invited us to join in the celebration of the husband's birthday.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here for two nights in order to do Sigiriya and Pidurangala and it was everything we needed. The room was basic and everything that we needed and the host/owner was extremely nice, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice to start the day with food in our bellies and we found very good family home-cooked Sri Lankan restaurants close by for dinner (Athula and Golden Palace Restaurant). The owner also helped organize our tuk-tuk (her father who was very nice and picked us up at 4:45am) for Sigiriya and Pidurangala and our private A/C van pickup when we were leaving to head back to Kandy. Thanks for a nice stay!
Cons: Nothing, it was great for two nights in order to see the local sights!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Bed is very comfortabled.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect for Dambulla Caves - they are an easy walking distance. And the host family are so welcoming, full of smiles and very kind. Chathuri was so helpful cooking me dinner when I arrived tired and told me all the info I needed. They really are a sweet family. The room is functional and has what you need for the stay.
Cons: Because of its great location the property is off the main road, so if you’re a light sleeper bring earplugs as you do get traffic noise. Due to the crazy monsoon rain the ceiling leaked a little in one place, but it was only a few drops so was all fine.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely wonderful hosts! Rukshan and his wife helped me plan my trip to the nearby attractions, got me discounted prices as I was traveling off season and had no company, and even accepted lesser prices than they had advertised! Best homestay I have stayed in.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The best place you can book in Dambulla! Amazing atmosphere and lovely owners. Delicious food, prepered by the owner herself. They helped us to arrange safari and other activities, even stopped the buses for us in front of their house. PS We hope that you already tried our polish gift ;)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice Place Hotel is a great place to discover a lot of must sees around (Sigiriya, Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks, Polonnaruwa, etc.). Especially that the hotel helps you organize the tours. It is a comfortable place to spend a couple of days in between the tours. The grounds are lovely with lots of wildlife to watch from the pool or the bedroom door. Birds, squirrels, monkeys, land monitors, turtles, cows and more! If you like wildlife come here! Food was outstanding with a huge amount of choice which changed daily. one of the cooks gave us a tour of the kitchen and I can assure you that all the food is made from scratch. We also got a tour of their farm which was great to see. It is a good location to visit Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnuwara. And even anuradhapura if you have a driver. Room was tastefully decorated and was comfortable. Set in the trees.

7.1 Good
Cons: There were no person on arrival at the reception. Hotel security has to run around to find the person. Once he came, implied that he is busy for about 5 mts and told us that room is ready, but have to wait for 20 mts as it should prepare. Once we came again after 20 mts, I was asked to make the payment before I get the room key and told that the balance will be taken to the room, but never appeared until we check out on the following morning. No responsible person was there in the reception or in the hotel to collect the balance or to check the rooms before check out. Finally I told the security guy who was roaming around the kitchen that we are checking out. This was the service the hotel staff provided for the local guests.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The tent/chalets were beautiful. The gardens were stunning. The best part however wS the resteraunt staff, so polite and the food was incredible.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is real value for money. It's location is great, the Dambulla caves are within walking distance and town is only a five minute journey away. The outside area is amazing, in particular the pool. We swam over to the bar area and had cocktails made for us by Pubudu, who is a fantastic cocktail maker and is keen to practise his English (which we equally enjoyed). We are at the hotel, which was a buffet of different foods, and thoroughly enjoyed it all :) The staff were very helpful and friendly. The security guard helped us to get a bus the following morning from opposite the hotel.
Cons: The balcony area isn't huge however, we didn't have any need for using it so it didn't matter.
6.0 Good
Pros: Damian the host was very helpful and made our stay as comfortable as possible. We stayed in a newer room. The chef / head of restaurant was also extremely friendly. The staff here really made us feel welcome and were interested in their guests. Very leafy & green and the pool is very inviting. Pool bar will help create a social atmosphere.
Cons: I would suggest putting a mosquito net above the bed as there were many bugs flying around the room and also many migies or flies on our bed. Also perhaps a TV in the room as there is not much to do in Dambulla in the evenings so after a day trip it would be nice to have a tv. I think the older rooms had one.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Booked this place last minute but it did not disappoint! The room is huge and comfortable! The staff help us out with our tuk tuk as we were driving one across Sri Lanka. Everyone is so friendly

Pros: Great service could do enough for us
Cons: Evening meal expensive
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Loves the gardens and peaceful ambience , large rooms and an attentive staff. The checking in can be faster and easier but the owner Frank and the staff made our day with some live music at dinner on our last day and we had a memorable time.
Cons: Nothing not to like but I think it’s a bit expensive and the food also while cooked fresh could be chargeable on a higher side Room service can improve. Wifi can be faster.
7.9 Good
Pros: Very competitive pricing - lower than most in the Dambullah/Sigiriya area at this 4* level - and the rooms are exceptionally clean and in good condition with loads of space. Prakash is also very attentive in terms of service in the restaurant too.
Cons: The location is quite a distance to the South of Dambullah and a long way from Sigiriya - 45 minutes by tuk-tuk. Although this is compensated for by the very competitive price, the food is too expensive for what it is (15$ for dinner) and options nearby are limited. The swimming pool area is also limited.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed here for 2 nights. The checkin was quick and the place is a candy store for nature lovers. The garden is beautiful with well maintained bushes and lawn. The stream running behind the property is the cherry on the cake. Sameer was an excellent host and the food was just delicious . The rooms were clean , huge and well maintained. Definitely recommend this place.

I had left back my mobile charger and a staff member provided both his power bank and charger. PS - Ask for the lime juice

6.7 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly
Cons: The takeaway dinner was hopeless and it was a real waste of money and some of us could not eat the dinner at all as that was tasteless with too much salt.
6.7 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful I selected Sri Lankan food, which was quite ok. Location excellent for watching international cricket at the Dambulla stadium. 5 minutes by auto rickshaw Also, very close to the cave temple.
Cons: There were two main problems, both to do with the room. There were a lot of mosquitoes in the room, also the electricity supply to the property was very erratic so the air conditioner barely had any effect and often stopped for long periods of time.. For these two reasons I found it impossible to get a good night's sleep on either night of my stay.
