Bask in the early morning sunshine while sipping champagne and cruising on Kandalama Lake, spotting birds and other wildlife. We will prepare a picnic-style breakfast for you to enjoy as you bob gently on the water, just as the ancient kings may have dined on this very lake more than a thousand years ago.
If you were working in the paddy fields, this is how you would eat your lunch. Sitting on the floor, you will be served a selection of delicious rice, curries and sambols in a wooden bowl lined with a lotus leaf, which you eat with your hands. Wash it down with cool water from carved coconut cups before rounding off with sweetmeats and cake, fresh fruit and ginger tea.
Hungry from the day’s excursion?Tuck in to an appetising spread that includes Caesar salad, crisp spring rolls, grilled ham and mushroom sandwiches, prawns and avocado on focaccia – not to mention brownies, muffins, cake and cookies.
We’ll take you on a tour of our two-acre organic vegetable garden, or Kotuwa, where you can see local crops like manioc, peanuts, okra, chillies, drumstick, beetroot and local herbs. If you like, you can pick some yourself to be included in your supper. Then our chef will prepare a delicious four-course mealthat you eat in the garden under the stars.
By the light of flaming torches and candle lanterns, serenaded by a lone flautist, this dinner is sure to bring out the romance in your soul. Crossing the small bridge by the enormous banyan tree, your waiter delivers a succession of gourmet delights such as charcoal-grilled peppered prawns, grilled tournedos of beef on red wine sauce and black and white chocolate marquise. Stone Age dining this is not!
Here’s a unique opportunity to have a guided tour of the longest kitchen in Sri Lanka, learn some of our master chef’s culinary secrets and be wowed by a wonderful meal, cooked right in front of you. Herb-smoked fish, flambéed jumbo prawns and Swiss chocolate mousse with butterscotch banana are just some of the dishes you might enjoy. And of course a photograph with the chef will add to the host of remarkable memories of your stay at Heritance Kandalama.
Our flagship dinner is truly a one-off experience. You will eat at the table where architect Geoffrey Bawa drew up his plans for Heritance Kandalama. You will be served by a team that transports you through time to the period of King Kasyapa, who built the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. And you will dine on an exquisite seven-course meal composed of the finest ingredients from around the world. Unforgettable!
