Heerassgala Place , Kandy , Central Province , Sri Lanka
Built along the lines of a Kandyan Palace or Maligawa - Amaya Hills offers guests a breathtaking retreat that peers down into the verdant Hanthana mountains encircling the structure. Its idyllic setting makes it truly a palace of one’s own, nestled in picturesque hill tops of Kandy. Among the eco-friendly resorts in Sri Lanka, this four-star hotel is a tasteful mingling of the essence of Kandyan culture with the trimmings of contemporary luxury. The exquisitely designed rooms offer a feast for the eyes, presenting panoramic views of distant hills, lush valleys below and stunning sceneries beyond, while the interiors include entertainment systems, balcony sit outs and more. The Ayurvedic spa is where guests can enjoy pampering with a traditional touch at an exclusive resort in Sri Lanka. Savour authentic local and international cuisine against a backdrop of the descending sun while you enjoy a getaway in the island’s most picturesque city, making for one of the most memorable holidays in Sri Lanka.
Drawing inspiration from ancient Kandyan architectural concepts and motifs, the 100 rooms housed at this four star hotel offers stunning views of the forest-covered hills of Heerasasagala and the scenic valleys beyond.
From floor to ceiling, every room brings aspects of Kandyan culture closer to guests, reflecting a unique take on modernistic luxury interspersed with the local culture of the hill country. Rooms are accented by heavy wooden carvings - a characteristic trait among ancient Sri Lankan artisans.
The painted symbols of the sun and moon that adorn the walls were considered as benefic symbols. A recurrent thematic element that is featured in each room are the colours of brick red, dark yellow and black that have been tastefully incorporated in even the smallest detail.
Rooms and suites are spread across three wings. The junior suites include spacious bedrooms, a lounge area and a private balcony where guests can enjoy an intimate setting against the backdrop of the descending sun. The suites situated on the Uthara Prasad wing could be accessed from the lobby or from the pool area via a stone -built staircase with natural borders.
