Built into the rock face in the forest with fantastic views over the lake.
Staff are friendly, food offered at the evening and breakfast buffet is good though like many buffets was not outstanding. During our stay the Al a Carte restaurant was closed for refurbishment.
This hotel is an ideal centre to visit Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya Rock plus one of the National Parks
A walk beside the lake will reveal a variety of wild life including deer, monkeys and a variety of birds.
The only downside are the troops of monkeys which can play havoc with the balcony furniture, we were woken at 06.30 one morning with 14 wrestling on the balcony. We were reluctant about using this area on the grounds of hygene and safety. They would approach if sitting on the balcony and could be aggressive if shooed away
- 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
