My family & I decided to spend the weekend at Amaara Sky, Kandy as I have heard so much and I personally have promoted the Amaara Sky to all my clients. We surely enjoyed every bit of it as we arrived, Amaara Sky staff were pleasant and friendly and very helpful in every way. We stayed in the Penthouse which was spacious and what a family requires when your away from HOME. The food was delicious, fresh and the flavours were simply amazing, tumbs up for the Chef!

All the best and keep up the good work at Amaara Sky, I promise to visit again and this time to stay longer. Thank you for everything my family & I truly appreciate and will never forget this weekend spent in your beautiful property...

On one of my visits with the family to the Sacred Tooth Relics Kandy during a weekend we had the opportunity of spending our stay at Amaara Sky Hotel in Kandy. It was one of the most memorable experiences either in Sri Lanka or overseas. mainly due to the quality of the Amaara Sky Hotel.

We were met and greeted by the friendly hotel staff on arrival. It was the excellent quality of the hotel rooms (we stayed in the penthouse) that took us by surprise . The large penthouse comfortable enough for the whole family of five is well appointed with all the needs that you may require. The room service staff is at your door .within a minute of ringing the bell and they are obliged to provide whatever you require.

The evenings and the mornings are amazing and you can take a glimpse of the beautiful city of Kandy either on the sunset or the sunrise. The large balcony overlooking the hills are really meant for a cool beer with your companions while enjoying the cool breeze from the hills.

We are thankful for the hotel for making this a memorable stay and we are certain of spending our next stay in Kandy at Amaara Hotel and recommend this lovely hotel for anyone who is looking for a memorable and comfortable stay that anyone will cherish forever.

Dilip De Alwis ( Ex Country Manager of Sri Lankan Airlines in Pakistan)

Room Tip: Penthouse is certainly recommended.

This was a great spot. Warm welcome and a wonderful back courtyard to have our meals outside. We stayed on the top floor which has vaulted wooden ceilings and a panoramic view of Kandy. My early morning coffee on that large balcony as I watched the sun come up was a highlight of our whole trip.

Room Tip: If you can book a room on the top floors, the view and accommodation are fantastic.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights but just feel it was short of something. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Location not great but they called a tuk tuk for us so it eased the pain. Rooms not the best but cant complain.

Dear Jayden,

Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your meals and the level of service you received. We are only 2km from the City center, this location was chosen in order to provide our guests with spectacular views and a level of piece and quite which you cannot enjoy within in the city premises. As you rightly mentioned, a tuk tuk ride certainly comes in handy.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 6 nights in February 2014. Located on the outskirts of Kandy at the top of a hill it has stunning views across the valley. Early breakfast on the patio in the cool morning air was a perfect way to start each day - so peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. My room was clean and air conditioned with a super shower and comfortable bed. All of the staff were highly professional and extremely attentive, particularly the waiting staff, who went to great lengths to make my stay a memorable one. The food was superb. There was an a la carte menu with a good selection of dishes and on a couple of evenings there was a buffet and barbecue on the patio.The chef's Coconut Jaggery (a sweet from the a la carte menu) was particularly delicious. I hope to return to Kandy, Sri Lanka in the near future, as 6 days was far too few to see all that this beautiful island has to offer. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was in fact our pleasure to have you with us. Our chef will be pleased to hear your comments about him Jaggery Pudding, he is very proud of this particular dish. I agree, 6 days is far too short - would love to have you back again on your next visit.

Surprises started from the lobby during the welcome, we were given Flowers by the staff with welcome drink, hot and cold towels and then proceeded for traditional lighting of the lamp.
We stayed in Penthouse which was Spacious and luxurious with balcony as well, bed was arranged nicely with flowers. One thing to be highlighted is the food, food was so tasty whether it was Continental or Sri Lankan Cuisine, I highly recommend Amaara Sky to travellers to Sri Lanka and it will be the best stay in Kandy.

Room Tip: Pent House is Luxurious
