Full accommodation information

A stay at this serene resort is all about enjoying the hotel’s spectacular natural setting.

Whether you decide to explore the mountain-lined shore of Kandalama Lake, cruise the waters on a traditional boat or simply enjoy the serene atmosphere beside the hotel’s pool, you’re sure to feel relaxed and immersed in nature.

Amaya Signature has a pleasingly simple and intimate vibe. Comprised of a collection of villas housing just 24 suites which each boast their own private balcony, even when the resort is at full capacity, it never feels overly busy.

In addition, because Signature Dining offers you the chance to enjoy a custom dining experience in a number of different places across the resort, you can share a private and romantic meal whenever you’d like it.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a livelier atmosphere, you can enjoy dining and drinks at the poolside Green Apple Restaurant and Signature Bar where each evening guests congregate to bring in the sunset.

Located close to some of Sri Lanka’s biggest attractions, the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the Rose Quartz Mountain Range, Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura, Minneriya National Park and the Dambulla Cave Temples, this resort is also perfect for those looking for action-packed day trips.

On offer are 24 different suites each warmly decorated in opulent tones of gold, red and beige with elegant wooden accents, and may be interconnected to accommodate groups or families. Each is set across 771 sq ft and comes equipped with a signature Sealy mattress dressed in frette linen, down duvets and feather and gel pillows as well as an en suite bathroom with a deep soaking mood-lit bathtub, equipped with a jacuzzi setting, and BVLGARI luxury bath amenities.
