Heritance Kandalama Dambulla

Hesitance Kandalama is set against the backdrop of the Sigiriya Rock fortress in the north central province at the heart of the Cultural Triangle. This architectural masterpiece designed by architect Geoffrey Bawa melds into the landscape rather than just sitting on it. It is hidden in the jungle out of sight from rest of the world. The hotel is shaped like outspread wings of a bird, measuring 1km from end to end. The enormous boulders integrated into the building and the green screen of vegetation supported by the flat roof and timber pillars attract local wildlife. It’s very common to find monkeys climbing on to your balcony pillars and birds singing in the garden. The Kandalama Lake gives the hotel its name and its views are spectacular from your room.


There are 152 rooms spread between the two wings of the hotel. All the rooms overlook Kandalama Lake and the forest. Dambulla Wing has views of the famous giant Buddha statue on Dambulla Rock and the Sigiriya Wing has views of the Sigiriya fortress. The glass fronted bathrooms bring you closer to nature while you take a shower or relax in the Jacuzzi. The rooms are categorized into Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms, Panoramic Rooms, Luxury Rooms, Luxury Panoramic Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Suite, Luxury Suite and the Royal Suite.
