The 152 rooms at Heritance Kandalama showcase the architectural genius of Geoffrey Bawa
Split between two wings, all rooms overlook the Kandalama tank and forest. Those in the Dambulla wing also have views of the enormous Buddha on Dambulla Rock, while rooms in the Sigiriya wing look out over the famous rock fortress. Every room is set at a different angle from its neighbours, so the view from each is unique.
Entering your room is like entering your own private world – a five-star cocoon at the centre of the 230-acre Kandalama estate. Polished wood floors and sophisticated colour palettes of black, grey and red are complemented by local fabrics and hangings.The glass-fronted bathrooms make you feel part of the natural landscape outside: you can take a refreshing shower or relax in the Jacuzzi without fear of being overlooked (except maybe by the monkeys who casually clamber up the creepers on your balcony!). Each bathroom is tastefully supplied with custom-made Kandalama toiletries.
The rooms are fully equipped with energy-efficient air conditioning, TVs with satellite and local channels, a comprehensive minibar and a digital safe. The free bottles of Hethersett Water come from the mountain spring of our sister hotel, Heritance Tea Factory, and we also provide coffee- and tea-making equipment, to help you make the most of your stay at one of the finest Sri Lanka resorts.
All rooms are accessible to wheelchairs, and we offer driver quarters if you have your own driver. We also provide free Wi-Fi in every room, as well as laundry service (no dry cleaning), porter service and 24-hour room service.
Free cots are available for babies; we can also provide an extra bed for a child on request.
Driver’s accommodation inclusive of all three meals will be provided free of charge.
Check-in is at 2:00 pm and check-out time is 12 noon.
With a separate sitting area, two private balconies, and a DVD player, our Suites provide you with more space to spread out and relax. They are ideal for families, as we can provide an extra bed in the sitting area. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi and separate rainshower cubicle, as well as bathrobes and slippers.
