    Location 5.09 /10

    The Amaya is set on the heights of Kandy - an inland town, located 70 mi away from Colombo. Allow a two hour drive from the airport.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    100 rooms are spread over two 2-floor buildings (no lift). All rooms, except 16 have a view of the valley, the others look out onto the mountain (a less impressive view). ey are furnished with two single beds, set close together, a large closet (fitted with a safe) near the entrance, two armchairs and a small table by the French windows, a mini-bar, a telephone, a kettle and a television. The rooms are simply decorated in the local style, with dark wood and white walls, giving them a nice elegant atmosphere. The bathrooms, however, could do with being renovated. Equipped with a small bathtub, a hair-dryer and some hospitality products, they now seem a little outdated. The scales that don't work (well at least I hope so) will make you want to start the toughest diet right away and lose the extra 20 pounds they add on you. Enjoy the little balcony, though!

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Overlooking the town of Kandy and nestled in lush greenery, the hotel consists of several impressive 3-floor red buildings in the middle of a neatly kept garden. A marble floor reception area opens out onto the surrounding nature, and its high ceilings and uniformed staff set off the chic atmosphere of the place. A large swimming pool with a 'pool bar' is surrounded by a terrace overlooking the valley - it makes for a complete immersion in the natural surroundings! Numerous activities are available at this remote hotel: table tennis, squash, a gym with outdated equipment, a night-club open on Saturday nights (aptly-named Garage) and an Ayurvedic centre with traditional decor, completely outdated but perfectly clean. The centre has seven rooms offering various types of massage, as well as herbal baths for complete relaxation. Finally, a black-&-white-clad bar, with a blend of traditional and modern design, is open from 10:00am to 10:00pm. However, for those of you who would rather have a taste of the local drink (tea), then an elegant lounge furnished with large white armchairs with a colonial touch to it, has a wide range of teas to offer. Finally, many excursions, leaving from the hotel, are offered for the nature lovers among you.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel only has one restaurant, but it is set up in a large room overlooking the pool and therfore offers stunning views over the valley. Endowed with a pleasant terrace, which you can enjoy at night provided you are wearing a light jumper, the restaurant serves all three meals as buffets. On the menu: Sri-Lankan cuisine of course, but also dishes to satisfy people requiring more common place meals such as pasta or other international classics. As for drinks, wealthier guests will be able to treat themselves to a European, South African or South American bottle of wine (?30), others will just drink the local beer, which tastes very good and is more affordable.
