Nice relaxing hotel with different kinds of bungalows located close to the Kandalama lake. Warm welcome with traditional Srilankan drum (Raban) play. Rooms are clean but, room service needs to be improved little. Good and friendly staff in the restaurant and their service is real

We are booked on a tour of Sri Lanka on a bed and breakfast basis and are staying at Amaya Lake for three nights. Could you give me an idea of how much on average it would cost for a meal for two in your hotel. Many Thanks
They have. 2 restaurants . A larger buffet style where you have breakfast and a smaller a la carte style with a pool. The menus are online but I remember it being very affordable. And delicious. We ate there lunch and dinner ( at the smaller).
