Immerse your mind, body and soul in the height of unspoilt Sri Lankan natural beauty and unparalleled luxury service at Amaya Lake.

Tucked comfortably into the heart of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, a stunning area of natural beauty containing a staggering amount of World Heritage Sites, and built around 22 hectares of spacious pathways that wind their way through dazzling forested grounds, this eco-friendly resort strives to be at one with its stunningly biodiverse environment and every element of its design is built with the tremendous setting in mind.

You will find a calming sense of seclusion sat beside Amaya Lake, the serene body of water from which the resort takes its name. Making your way through the beautifully maintained grounds on walking or cycling expeditions may lead you to the stunning “quiet zone” in which you can lay back and listen to the magical sounds of the indigenous birds and wildlife enjoying their undisturbed habitat. Amaya Lake’s untouched aesthetic transports you back through the ages and leaves you feeling as though you are experiencing a traditional Sri Lankan way of life.

Delightful accommodation continues your immersion into Sri Lankan tradition and culture. Low-standing buildings employ plenty of natural light and give a welcome feeling of calm, while minimal, elegant design using earthy clay tones and chestnut-hued wooded accents provides a traditional touch and delivers the rustic charm of lakeside Sri Lankan living while inviting you out into the luscious tropical backdrop and stunning gardens that surround the rooms.

Nestled amongst the foliage you will discover a beautiful swimming pool. Serene and seemingly disconnected from the stresses and distractions of the outside worlds, this is the perfect place to unwind and connect to the beauty of the resort. Furthermore, the on-site spa cultivates a calming atmosphere that aligns directly with the surroundings by using natural woods, wide-open spaces, varied plant life and soft neutral colours. Here you will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul through a series of traditional treatments, dexterously applied by skilled therapists.

With special events taking place all over the resort being as varied as cocktail parties, cultural shows and traditional performances, including fire dances, palm reading and live musical showcases you will never be short of entertainment options. Amaya Lake also ensures that kids have more than enough enthralling activities to keep them occupied. With table tennis, volleyball and camping available, it is no surprise that Amaya Lake is considered to be one of the best family hotels in Dambulla.
