Quiet Retreat from Kandy”

food, staff, views

After a 15 minute uphill climb in a tuk tuk, we finally arrived at Amaya Hills. The views from reception were definitely worth the journey. The reception staff greeted us with a welcome drink while they checked us in, allowing us to take in the awesome view. Our room was lovely, clean and well equipped. We had a tv with english movie channels, a balcony overlooking the valley and an extremely comfortable bed. There was complimentary water, mini bar and good value room service. We opted for breakfast in our room both mornings. This was a massive portion of toast, French toast, bacon, eggs, fruit juice and tea/coffee. We were also treated to a complimentary fruit bowl and chocolates which was a lovely touch. We ate lunch and dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was good quality and really good value. The buffet was kept stocked up and hot despite the hotel being fully booked. The staff were attentive and friendly. We didn't get a chance to use the pool as the weather wasn't great during our stay. However, the pool looked lovely and was spotless. Although the hotel is a quite far from Kandy town centre they have an arrangement with the local tuk tuk company where the cost can be charged to your room. This was really convenient and saved us the bother of ensuring we had adequate change for the drivers. If I was returning to Kandy I would opt for a hotel that was more central. However, Amaya Hills is ideal if you want to combine sightseeing with somewhere you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We had an amazing stay at Amaya hills during the weekend... We were pleasantly surprisedwhen we were upgraded to a suite upon arrival...... our three boys were thrilled with the attic type room! The location of the hotel is superb......with some beautiful sceneries.....bit of a climb to the hotel but nothing difficult! The rooms were superb.... All amenities were provided, nothing spared! The only thing which was not upto standard were the TV channels..... the pictures were not clear on most channels..... lighting could also be improved in the rooms..... Food was simply delicious....both dinner & breakfast buffets were really good with a wide variety of food types Catering to all! The service provided by the hotel staff was truly amazing.....all whom we came across were very helpful & friendly... A special Thank you to Front Office Executive Ms..

Incrediable views of Kandy

My stay at the Amaya hills was very relaxing and I enjoyed my time there. The hotel is about 12kms from Kandy perched up high in the mountain. It has exceptional views and nestled amongst beautiful gardens.The junior suite was large and comfortable and unpretentious. It has a nice balcony but don't leave your doors open as you may find some interesting friends coming in for a visit..cheeky monkeys!! Don't worry they are more frightened of you!! The service was excellent and they even packed a breakfast to go for me and my friend due to our early departure.A special thank you to staff Harshi & Jega who's customer service was exceptional and the reason why I would return again.

A hotel with culture”

I found Amaya Hills to be a great hotel with a good mix of Sri Lankan culture and upmarket luxury. Set on a hill, it has the best views of Kandy. The rooms are bigs. The staff was very accomodating especially since I have 2 wheelchair travellers with me. The check in process was so easy and I had about 4 people helping me check in. It was great. The staff also opened the gym early upon my request which i was very greatful for. I only regret not staying here for a few more days.

views, pool and monkeys!

After a long drive from Galle, we arrived at the Amaya Hills Hotel exhausted and in need of revitalisation and that is exactly what we got!! The gardens around the hotel and the views from the rooms and the pool were just beautiful especially during sunset. The pool was rather cold and beware of the monkeys! do not leave your doors open! we woke to a monkey eating a pineapple on our balcony. we only stayed in Kandy for 2 nights and we hired the hotel mini bus for a day tour around all the sites and temples within Kandy. The driver was great and told us all the history of the area.

Absolutely Outstanding Hotel”

Fantastic service and magnificent views

We loved this place. The hotel, the food, the staff - you name it. If there is anywhere in this country that we would choose to come back to, it would be staying at the Amaya Hills Hotel. This is our number 1 choice before anywhere else. The views from this location was magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed the buffet breakfast which delicious and varied. The rooms were not only gorgeous, but provided us with a comfortable night's rest. The woman at the front desk was so helpful and kind - going out of her way to help us with our itinerary and sort out our confusion by calling on the phone and speaking personally to the hotel concierge and directing our driver to a new set of directions. This is one hotel that will leave you with a great memory and the wish to hope to return one day for a longer stay.

Amaya Hills”

Well-kept property, beautiful gardens and pool, spectacular view, quiet location, well-designed room with balcony
Location is very far out of town, buffet food is mediocre at best

The biggest problem with this hotel is that it is quite far out of Kandy town centre. It is a 20 minute bumpy taxi (three-wheeler) ride up the hill from Kandy. To be fair, I don't think Kandy town is such a desirable place to spend a lot of time, but the problem is that there are no other restaurant options anywhere near the hotel and hence you have little other choice but to eat there. The a-la-carte food we tried was decent enough, albeit over-priced (what else can you expect...). The buffet (including the breakfast) food was disappointing: typical low quality, high-quantity hotel food. Croissants looked like croissants but tasted like buns. Squid looked like squid but tasted like cardboard Yet, apart from those downsides, the Amaya Hills was very enjoyable for the two nights we stayed there. It is a beautifully situated property, splendid views, very nice pool and gardens. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room very clean (twice a day housekeeping), well-equipped and amenities well-kept. I liked the balcony with double doors and seats. We received a welcome drink when we arrived, plus later fruit + cake as a welcome gift in our room.

Stunning in the hills.”

Great atmosphere.

We found the Amaya Hills hotel really nice. It's in a stunning location with great views across the hills. It's a little out of Kandy central, but there's plenty of auto-rickshaws and taxis available. The breakfast has lots of variety and the evening dinner provides choice of a plentiful buffet or a la carte, at okay but not cheap prices. Our room was clean and tidy, although slightly cold - partially due to the altitude. The corridor was slightly noisy due to no specific sound proofing.

Great Value Hotel with Fantastic Views”

Location and Delicious Buffet Dinner

We stayed at Amaya Hills Resort for 2 nights. We found the rooms to be comfortable and clean although the decor a little dated. Our balcony had a beautiful view of the hills. It was quite wet when we were there and the mosquitos were out in full force so be sure to close the doors at night as there were no mosquito nets provided. The swimming pool was stunning it was just a shame is wasn't heated as it was a little too cold to swim in. The evening buffets were delicious but $25 a head you really needed to be hungry to get your money's worth. The staff were very helpful and were able to provide a cot for our 2 year old.

I visited Sri Lanka for a short period, after staying in Amaya for one day, decided to stay longer, seeing the excellent service they provided. Staff was very friendly, I felt like home. Food was exceptional with a variety of choices. Walking tracks around the mountain leading to the top of Hantana was an excellent experience with picturesque views. Inside the hotel with its grandiose ancient looks and spaciousness surrounded by lush green forest creating a calm peaceful environment for anyone who would know how to enjoy the beauty of nature. Best hotel in Kandy for Kandyan experience.

Wonderful hotell with a view...”

Pleasant and happy helpful staff in a beautiful location...

It's a bit of a ride by tuc-tuc or taxi up the Amaya Hills, but it's definitely worth it, breakfast outside with a view over the pool on to the hills beyond is amazing, both the hotel and it's garden is well-kept, posh rooms and lobby, views all around, and the staff were all friendly and helpful, beautiful in their costumes, and always ready with service and a smile...

Excellent stay and Staff”

This is a very peaceful place with very welcoming staff. We stayed two nights at this place and they made sure the rooms are well clean and everything is just a call away. The rooms are beautiful and the view is just amazing from this place. I stayed in cinnamon lakeside in colombo, amaya in kandy, jetwings in nuwara eliya and w15 in weligama. But this hotel was the best amongst all. I cannot tell about the breakfast at this place. I didn't have it here.

Lovely staff, amazing breakfast”

breakfast, location

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amaya Hills hotel. The view from the hotel is spectacular, and we loved eating breakfast on the balcony enjoying the view. The breakfast was amazing. The buffet was huge, and we loved the egg hoppers and fresh waffles. There is also a good gym to exercise in as it is simply to hot to do outdoor exercise. The rooms are sweet and the bed huge (like most of the beds in Sri Lanka!).
