Heritance Kandalama

Kandalama | Deluxe

Designed by Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka's most renowned architect, this superbly stylish hotel also comes with impeccable eco credentials. The Kandalama recycles 100% of its waste, harvests rainwater, boasts Sri Lanka's most sophisticated water recycling facility, only grows indigenous plants in its lush 81 hectare grounds, and has won over 50 awards for everything ranging from environmental policy to architecture and, quite importantly, its fantastic food.

Stretching a remarkable 1km and built flush against a jungle-clad cliff-face, the Kandalama's stunning location is only beaten by its views, overlooking the Sigiriya Rock Fortress and the ancient Kandalama reservoir.

The entire building is festooned with rambling plants, blending it further into its natural setting, and the nature theme is continued within; a classy 'eco' aesthetic prevails, and interiors benefit from Bawa's signature huge open windows, which let in plenty of natural light and also allow wildlife-watching from your bath.

Dine on expertly prepared Sri Lankan and international cuisine in either the hotel's buffet or à la carte restaurant, or in an imaginative array of personal dining experiences. There are three spectacular pools - the infinity pool, overlooking the lake, is a particular favourite - and you'll find a library, gym and gorgeous Six Senses spa inside.

We Say
Experience Bawa's amazing architecture and Sri Lanka's natural beauty in one remarkable hotel
