Hotel Overview


Sigiriya, the heart of Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle.

Rooms at Heritance Kandalama

The 152 luxurious rooms at the Heritance Kandalama are split across 2 wings, with breathtaking views of the enormous Buddha on Dambulla, the Rock Fortress at Sigiriya and the Kandalama Lake. Glass fronted bathrooms enhance the views while offering complete privacy; if you don’t mind the occasional monkey peering in.

Food and Facilities

The Kanchana and Kaludiya Fusion restaurants offer dishes from around the globe while the intimate surroundings take full advantage of the surrounding landscape. For a real treat, why not have Breakfast on the Barge? Sipping champagne on the lake; a perfect way to start the day. Not an early riser? How about a Cave Dinner: candle light, personal waiter and private flutist? Who said romance was dead!

Activities at Heritance Kandalama

Explore the abundance of wildlife and surroundings on foot, horseback or even an elephant trek. For the most spectacular views, take to the skies in a hot air balloon from the hotel grounds. At up to 2500 feet, you can see Lion Rock, an ancient fortress built in the 5th century AD, an impressive wonder of engineering and culture you may wish to explore on another day.
