My best hotel experience to date! The view and the feeling of one-ness with nature was the best...at the same time not having to sacrifice on self-indulgent luxury! The pool visually extends into the lake and another pool is made using the natural rock formation in the hotel. The pool staff were wonderfully helpful and very knowledgeable about the locality. The corridors span the edge of the forest and groups of monkeys frequently occupy the trees along the corridors and rooms. The food is fantastic too. The breakfast was awesome, but there could have been a better variation between lunch and dinner (but neither was disappointing at all!) I loved the body lotion in the Superior room/Dambulla wing and would love to know where I can purchase some in Sri Lanka!
- 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
