I endorse the positive reviews that most guests have on this hotel - it indeed is a great experience. Particularly relaxing is the view to the horizen over the lake, grazing cows, forest and the distant mountains from most parts of the hotel. We did a day trip to Anuradhapura (one and a half hours away), which was another awesome experience. Made full use of the jacuzzi in the room when we got back in the evening. I also recommend the 7th floor restaurant - not only does it gets you away from the noisy buffet below, but they also have a great grill. For the record, I managed to climb till the frescoes at Sigiriya in about 30 minutes, but had to leave the rest for the next visit. Tip: be ready to start climbing when they open at 8am.
- 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
