We felt cheated and shortened our trip in Amaya Hi

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 6, 2009

I and my husband planned a three day visit to Kandy and planned to stay in Amaya Hills. Since I am pregnant I wanted a peaceful stay in a Kandy. To our great shock the manager Mr. Manager charged us $110 per room saying that it is a deluxe room, and when I inquired with the staff at Amaya Hills I came to know that there are no rooms such as deluxe room or standard rooms, all rooms are same in the hotel . Further I also contacted a travel agent who quoted only $ 80 for the same room. When I asked Mr. Manager regarding this matter he bluntly and rudely said that this is a hotel business and that you will have to pay $110 irrespective of the service and the type of room. The room was pathetic and smelly and two single beds were joined for a couple which was a bad idea. The food was average and less variety. Over all it was a humiliating experience at Amaya Hills and we cut short our visit in the hotel. Did not get value for money. I would never recommend it to anyone. I should add that the staff is quite good excluding the manager.

After having mastered the long and winding "road" 7 km way up the hill from Kandy, you will feel in the last century. (although the hotel seems to have been refurbished a couple of years ago)
A very nice and (on the first glance ) "luxurious" reception area above the pool in connection with the stunning views down in the Kandy valley,gives you the feeling of having arrived in former colonial times.So does the valley-view room in Sri Lankan style, with bathroom, tub and shower
Those are more or less the positive sides of the coin; service is average, the dining-room resembles a waiting-room in a train-station, the food just lives up to the expectation, you might have to a waiting-room also. Waiters are not very well trained and adhere to a rather complicated checklist, before serving your order.
Food as such, especially at the buffet-dinners, has been sometimes good, but never reaching a 4-star standard.

Unique Quality: Wonderful, breathtaking views; superb sunsets with the distant sounds of Kandyan temple ceremonies.
7 km out of Kandy, taking about 30 minutes from Kandy center.

Directions: Shortly before reaching Kandy`s city limits a small unpaved road leads up to Amaya Hill
