We loved the Kandalama when we stayed there in 2007. Rooms were nice food was very good to excellent and service was very good.

In Kandy, we stayed at the Kandy House which we loved.

I stayed at the Kandalama this past November and didn't like it at all, it felt like a bit corporate sausage machine of a hotel.
I understand the concept of the back to nature ( which I liked) but some of the areas need a look at, one pool area looked abandoned... Unless you want to eat at the buffet the pickings are slim. We ate at the restaurant on the top floor, the food was nice and the service perfectly fine but for me many parts of this hotel were soulless... I actually regretted staying here....

We met 3 Dutch girls who had stayed at the jetwing vil uyana near Dambulla/ Sigiriya. They said it was lovely. For some reason I had discounted it but location wise I think it would be great and they said it really was nice.
