Heritance Kandalama
Kandalama

This iconic hotel was designed by Sri Lanka's most famous architect, Geoffrey Bawa. The hotel, seemingly blending in with the jungle and set against the cliffs of a huge granite outcrop overlooks a huge, ancient man-made lake. From the roof gardens and the bedroom balconies, stunning views can be enjoyed for miles around, including out to Sigiriya Rock in the distance. The swimming pools are sensational, particularly the horizon pool overlooking the lake. Located in the centre of the Cultural Triangle, this hotel provides the perfect base from which to explore the ancient cities, palaces and temples of the surrounding area at a relaxed and leisurely pace.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.
Diane Arbus

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
