Heritance Kandalama, Dambulla Reviews
Great service and friendly staff, beautiful hotel that is built in to the rock face. Really enjoyed the incorporation of nature in to the architecture. The drive up is also beautiful as it winds through country roads, really sets the mood for the hotel. There are no other man-made structures to be seen for miles around the area, making the stay very peaceful and reclusive. The food was excellent, just note that the lunch is a set menu (which is excellently presented) while the other meals are buffet style.I would very much recommend you to start here, it serves as an amazing hub for any nature lover to go explore from.
A place with huge wow factor. The views are stunning, as is the incorporation of nature into the hotel. Monkeys at the window one day, elephant in the lake the next. Friendly staff who are great at their jobs. Slight drawback is the pillows (much to high and hard) and noisy air conditioning. Also curious that the minibar was stubbornly understocked even after we called reception. But overall a wonderful place we were so glad to stay in! One thing to note if you want somewhere accessible (which we didn’t require / ask for) - the shower is in the bath tub and would be so hard to get into if you need something accessible. Not to say accessible rooms don’t have this though.
This beautiful place should be on everyone's bucket list! This incredible hotel feels like you are staying in the jungle with 5star service. We had a beautiful welcoming on arrival and was taken aback by the picturesque views from every angle. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, they arranged all our day trips for us and it was extremely enjoyable. The food was magnificent, themed buffet dinners and a delicious spread of fresh fruit in the mornings.
I've been to a lot of hotels in the world, but this one is absolutely unique. Built right out of the jungle, with views of the lake, wildlife all around ... and the food is very, very good. We were there three nights, and every meal offered something different (definitely take at least half-board). I've read some of the other reviews criticizing the cleanliness, dated facilities, etc. With due respect, those people are nuts. No, this is not a five-star Hilton - and thank god. This place has personality, built by a genius architect, one-of-a-kind, in the backwoods of Sri Lanka. It's clean, the staff are fantastic, the food is great. GO.
Nice Resort over looking Kandalama Lake. The road to hotel is through a jungle. Staff is very friendly and very good restaurant and rooms are nicer for the higher category rooms having lake view and jungle side view. The basic category rooms are not nice as they have no view and it feels like you are in a cage. In overall, it is nice experience with a nice resort and having some additional activities like elephant back ride, snake farm and a ground to do some morning exercises.
