Heritance Kandalama Hotel

Dambulla

BackBack

Geoffrey Bawa’s austere jungle palace

Conceptualized by Geoffrey Bawa, world renowned architect, the Heritance Kandalama, described by one as a giant belvedere, is not a building to look at, but rather a building to look from.

Built in a minimalist and contemporary style, the hotel sits on a rocky outcrop on the edge of an ancient reservoir and enjoys sweeping views of the surrounding countryside including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the 1st Century BC Dambulla rock temple and the 5th Century AD Sigiriya Rock Temple. The hotel itself is surrounded by beautiful naturally landscaped gardens, and is a haven for over 160 species of migratory birds.

The Heritance Kandalama has 152 rooms divided into 8 categories along with 15 suites located in the Sigiriya and Dambulla wings.
