P.O. Box 11, Kandalama, Dambulla, Sri Lanka.
Great location with great architecture and some epic views from some parts of the hotel, but if you're stuck in one of the lower floors, you don't get a view from your room.

This is a one-of-a kind hotel that you should visit once in your lifetime. Nestled deep within a forest and surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife, the unique architecture and environment creates a perfect retreat from the hurly burly of daily life. It's so tranquil and close to nature that we felt truly well-rested in our two days there. We were wowed by how the development is integrated with its natural surroundings. You'll see huge natural boulders jutting out from man-made walls, monkeys scampering near gorgeous swimming pools and so much greenery you'll think your eyesight would have improved! The breakfast is a delicious and diverse buffet spread that includes Sri Lankan food. The only downside? The floor of our hotel room was always dusty. Overall an amazing experience!
