Spa at Heritance Kandalama Apr 19, 2012
It was indeed a surprise when I got to the hotel by tuk-tuk from Dambulla town. Searched for the top hotel of Dambulla and resulted in this hotel. Called the hotel and booked for a spa slot for the day. Staff was very pleasant. The journey to the hotel itself was amazing. Passed by a jungle-like pathway with signs that says 'Elephants crossing'! I was excited to see whats coming. When I got to the lobby, the view was stunning. At the AL-fresco dining area, the view was breathtaking beyond belief!! It felt like heaven on earth to me! There was an infinity pool that goes right to the huge lake and I could see an elephant heading down to the lake with people on it. Apparently it was a part of the hotel's specialty, where you can have an elephant ride for only $30!

Since I was late to the spa, too caught up with the beauty of the hotel, the spa staff called me and offered to pick me up from the dining area to the spa, how thoughtful. Had a 2-hour Ayurvedic Massage that was relaxing and the view from the massage room was incredible! I would definitely come back to this place. Highly recommended for couples and adults.

Unbelievable hotel built on a rock structure Sep 23, 2011
We stayed in Kandalama Hotel for 2 nights. The place is amazing. The architecture alone is quite stunning as the hotel is built around a rock, and you notice this as soon as you arrive. The swimming pools are great too and there are plenty of things to do (gym, large chess board tables, massage, walks etc). There were two highlights. First, getting to see monkeys play right outside your room (even your bathroom!) which apparently is very common there. Second, the food - the buffet is the best! It features both Sri Lankan and Western cuisine. Highly recommend the stay - but be wary of the price.

an architectural masterpiece May 15, 2011
Heritance Kandalama is a very classy hotel and an architectural masterpiece. Rooms are relatively small and the food is not that great but everything else compensates for it. Make sure you book early because it is a very popular hotel.

The green cage inside forest Nov 17, 2010
First time arrive, I was amazed by the sequence of the scenery, the hotel was built to emerge to the nature..The corridor with one side stone wall and the other side white painted wall lead us to the living room where in the evening siripada will play the flute, sitting on top of the rock on the wall. The famous infinty pool with overlooking to the kandalama lake will be the best place to in the morning or sunset time..

The architecture is simple, concrete structure with geometric line, but every corner will bring you to another curiousity. The veranda is screened by vine and sometime monkeys will come to our room. The bathroom wall illustrated with some branch of the climber roots..which I think it's one of Laki's drawing. The big owl sculpture by Laki Senanayake is a point where the restaurant is..
