Amaya Hills Resort is a Luxurious Affair in Kandy

Amaya Hills Resort Kandy

After climbing Sigiriya Rock Fortress, we were headed to Kandy, but least did I know that we were to check into a paradise amidst hills. This abode of luxury was none other than the Amaya Hills Resort in Herrassagala area of Kandy. Tracing royal splendour and enchanting monarchical charms from a bygone era of royalty, Amaya Hills Kandy, sets a classic example for luxury in Kandy with its spectacular and viridescent landscape views. Staying here ‘truly’ means to be treated like royalty for as long as you are vacationing.

Amaya Hills Resort Reception

I checked-in during late evening when the open verandah lobby reception was gleaming with lights. It was cold but not chilly. Let’s just say that the weather was perfect for you to want to sit in the lobby a little longer than the check-in period. For once, I was hoping for a delayed check-in for I was totally enjoying the ambience and the pleasant weather.

While strolling around, I walked towards the backside of the reception, from where I could sight the pool and one side of the illuminated room balconies.

Amaya Hills Resort Room

On the other side, was the way to the restaurants. In fact, towards the entrance of the restaurant, an astrologer was seated. He looked quite happy and confident to be able to tell people’s future. I may have not shown him my hand, but those who did, look pretty happy as well. At that moment, the reception staff reached out to me with my room key and politely escorted me to the alleyway. My luggage followed after.

Amaya Hills Resort Room Interiors

My 252 sq.ft deluxe room was quite a delight to step into. Elegantly designed, this room portrayed a seamless blend of serenity and modernity. As a matter of fact, decorated with earthy hues and tones, the room further, leads out to a balcony that features breathtaking views of the neighbouring valleys. The in-room features of this delightful room include complimentary Wi-Fi, a walk-in closet, a work desk, a minibar and a welcome offering of fresh fruits and chocolates. The high ceiling of this room was also quite fascinating as it showcased a lovely wooden framework. The walk-in closet also contains extra pillows, in case, you may need to feel more comfortable. There is also an iron board for those last-minute press requirements.

Amaya Hills Resort Bathtub

Amaya Hills Resort Toiletries

The ensuite washroom, on the other hand, was a compact yet elegant corner with a large bathtub. Although, What I really liked about the washroom was the wide selection of complimentary toiletries and the towels. All in all, a clean washroom, with all amenities covered including a hairdryer, and a smart mirror to redefine your stay experience.

Amaya Hills Resort Dinner

During my stay at Amaya Hills Resort, I had the pleasure to enjoy my dinner and breakfast at the Rasawasala Restaurant. For dinner, we ate indoors, while for breakfast, we dined outside. The lavish dinner menu of Amaya Hills Resort covered a fusion of scrumptious delicacies prepared to perfection with fresh local ingredients. They even had a separate Jain section for vegans. The interiors of the Rasawasala restaurant are charmingly decorated with conventional motifs and wall hangings of Kandyan spears, knocking together a marvellously unique heritage atmosphere.

Amaya Hills Resort Morning

Amaya Hills Resort Tea

I certainly enjoyed a good night’s sleep in my room. However, the morning after was even better. From my balcony, I could see mountains enshrouded with mist and clouds, a view that I could have adorned for hours. As for breakfast, I devoured the morning meal in the company of the stunning vistas of the Knuckles Mountain range. It’s quite amazing to enjoy breakfast under the vast open skies, especially when you are at a hill station. I absolutely enjoyed every single moment of my stay with Amaya Hills Resort. Big thanks to Sri Lanka Tourism Board for introducing me to this property and bigger thanks to the hotel staff for treating me with much love and warmth. I can’t wait to return to this hotel and if any of you are visiting Kandy anytime soon then this is the hotel where you must put up.

Amaya Hills Resort Breakfast

P.S. I stayed at Amaya Hills as a guest of Sri Lanka Tourism Board, however, the views are my own.
