Description

Rooms at The Heritance Kandalama are unique: each is set at a different angle to its neighbours, thus the view from every room is exclusive. Once you enter your room, you are in your own private world, cocooned in five-star luxury;.

The hotel has 152 Timber panelled and designer decorated rooms, ranging from Superior to the ultra luxury Royal Suite. All rooms are also fully equipped with energy efficient air conditioning, TVs with satellite and local channels, a comprehensive mini bar and coffee and tea making equipment.

You have a choice of bathrooms fitted with luxurious rain showers, bathtubs or Jacuzzis. The glass-fronted bathrooms make you feel as if you are a part of the picturesque natural landscape outside your windows. We offer 24-hour room, laundry and porter services; and our rooms are wheel chair accessible.

The hotel has three restaurants, as well as several outdoor venues including rooftop terraces, where food is served on special occasions. Chinese, Italian, Sri Lankan, Mongolian and barbeque food are offered on theme nights.

Each dish served is a work of art, devotedly crafted by our master Chefs. The restaurants at Heritance Kandalama combine the best traditions of international fine dining, with a Sri Lankan touch, making the meals a truly unique experience. Adhering to the Heritance principle of responsible tourism, the finest in international cuisine is presented, supplemented by health and goodness. Enjoy your meal and sip a glass of wine while feasting your eyes on the vista that is the Kandalama Lake, the natural rainforest, and the Sigiriya rock silhouetted against the distant horizon.

The Heritance Kandalama has won awards as one of the most eco-friendly hotels in the world. Heritance hotels have pioneered eco tourism in Sri Lanka.

Geoffrey Bawa’s visionary architectural design has ensured that no lights are required anywhere in the hotel during daytime. As a result, the hotel makes a substantial saving in the energy that is consumed. The hotel was built between two rock formations and none of the trees on the location were destroyed. The hotel is built on a raised platform allowing water to flow underneath and faciliitating the movement of animalsl, creating a minimum impact on the eco system.

The hotel has a comprehensive energy conservation policy with power cut-off switches, energy efficient lighting, photo active garden lights and solar power hot water systems. No surface water is utilized: water is obtained from deep tube wells and a maze of gutters that collect rainwater.

The Heritance Kandalama is uniquely located adjacent to an ancient man-made lake, which is more than 2,000 years old. We are committed to conserving and protecting this unique natural and cultural environment for the benefit of posterity. In order to prevent deforestation and the construction of artificial structures we have purchased an additional 180 acres of virgin rain forest around the hotel. This forest functions as our own private sanctuary, untainted by human touch.

We also respect the social and cultural sensitivities of the neighbouring communities, while assisting them economically. We purchase local products and services, and involve these communities in our environmental conservation work.
