I have never been in a such extraordinary resort, midst the lush greenery, covered by a thick and dense forest. You feel you are in the middle of the jungle. The first hotel in Asia to be Green Globe certified. The view at the lake is magnificent, with three pools overlooking. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The food and service excellent. Service very nice and professional.
A once-in-a-lifetime event for an architecture enthusiast. This is Bawa's masterpiece. It's been slightly altered, but the general experience is in line with what Bawa envisioned. Perhaps even better, actually, because Bawa's ideal included mature vegetation engulfing the building and only since his death has that vision been realized.
Fabulous hotel great location
Great hotel with fabulous views over the lake. Really good food and friendly staff. Did the early morning bird watching walk which was very good. Easy to get to Sigiriya by tuk tuk. We had a room with jacuzzi overlooking the lake with shower over it, fabulous.

The Heritance Kandalama is as beautiful and different as everyone says! We had a great stay here, a really different hotel like nowhere we have been before. The rooms are an ok size but the bathroom is huge with an amazing shower. We were lucky to get upgraded and had views in front and at the side of our room - the monkeys on the terrace made it fun too! Breakfast was one of the best I have had with lots of options. Staff in general are very helpful and efficient too. We spent some time at the pool, the views are breathtaking over the lake. Our only downside is that the restaurant has a smart casual dress code, men must be in trousers - this isn’t normally a problem but we packed light and hence couldn’t eat in either of the main dining rooms. We did have food at the pool bar and that was good enough for us. The rooms in general need a bit of a tidy up, they are clean but the curtains and hotel book are a bit rough around the edges. Despite that, we would go back in a heartbeat.
A piece of heaven
One of the most beautiful and relaxing places we’ve stayed at. Stunning views and great food. The children loved it. The hotel goes the extra mile by adding little touches like free baby meals brought directly to the room which meant our meals at the restaurant were just that bit more special. We’ve spent many a happy holiday here and certainly plan to return again!
