Heritance Kandalama

Heritance Kandalama is an architectural masterpiece by Geoffrey Bawa, built overlooking the rock fortress of Sigiriya. The hotel is nestled within the impressive rock formations at the heart of the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka, close to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

This unique hotel is shaped like the outspread wings of a bird, following the line of the cliff from which it seems to emerge. The hotel is an amazing 1km from end to end, and rises up seven floors, yet appears to be a perfectly natural extension of the mountainside. The flat roof and timber pillars support a screen of vegetation that attracts local wildlife.

The abundance of real-life animals around the hotel is complemented by wonderful large-scale sculptures within it. A metal owl is suspended outside the main restaurant; wooden elephants inhabit the lounge; a stone cobra uncoils along the terrace overlooking the infinity pool.

While this luxury resort focuses on highlighting its natural surroundings, its priority is to provide its guests with the finest comforts and service. The stylish bedrooms and suites offer wonderful views over Kandalama lake. Fine dining is available in the Fusion Dining Room as well as delicious buffets and theme nights in the main restaurant - there are also more exotic and unusual dining options on offer.
