1 night stopover
Service and hotel itself is amazing. I was a little disappointed with the dinner buffet, western food was not as good as the Sri Lankan cuisine. Breakfast was amazing! The infinity pool definitely needs to be relaxed in!

Fair 4.0
Need real upgrade on bathroom with new toilet bowl
The hotel itself is in a good location. They sold this place as a 5 Star hotel and its not, I would say lower than 3 Star. Bathrooms were terrible. Leaky shower, soap scum on the glass door and coverings, stain on toilet bowl, worn out and faded towels. I don't think they have changed and got a new set of towels for 10 years. We had four rooms and paid a fortune for this deplorable condition rooms. Please don't dupe tourists saying its a five Star hotel. Management staff was willing to hear our complaint, but the rank and file staff was very defensive. The lower level staff need better training.

Exceptional 10.0
We really enjoyed our stay at the Kandalama Hotel. Our room was spacious with views from both windows. Monkeys climbed the vines outside our room & even sat on the balcony. We made use of the very nice swimming pools which are a good size. The food was excellent, such a range of dishes & food cooked to order -the best buffet we had on our trip to Sri Lanka. All the staff were friendly polite & helpful particularly the restaurant staff & housekeeping exceptional ! We found the location of the hotel ideal for visiting many of the sites in the cultural triangle without it feeling touristy. A beautiful setting in fact.

A magnificent retreat
In the middle of the rainforest this hotel is a wonderful treat. The architecture, making use of.natural boulders and vines, is impressive, the service is first rate and the room, with its view far out to the famous rock outcropping of Sigiriya is magnificent. I was their to see a family of monkeys outside ny terrace in the morning and later swinging through the trees. This is an extensive property, with beautiful pools, good restaurants and magnificent views everywhere, and it provides a wonderful and peaceful break from travel in a hot and humid climate.
