Dear Clive,

Thank you for your lovely review and choosing to stay at the Amaara Sky Kandy. I am sure you and the family enjoyed staying in our 2000 Sq Ft Luxury Penthouse Suite. Just to clarify, there is no spirit living in the room, the flute noise you are referring to is actually the sound of the wind blowing through the building. As we are right on top of the mountain, there is no obstruction to the wind hence when it hits the building and travels along the narrow gaps between our property and our next door house it creates a whistling noise. The lift motor and water motors are also on the roof on top of the Penthouse roof which occasionally makes a murmur of a sound. We can assure you that there is no spirit or lady playing the flute and laughing as you have mentioned!

We stayed for one night on a 2-week Sri Lankan tour - and were lucky enough to time our visit with a massive local festival - the Esala Perahera - one of the main Buddhist festivals in Sri Lanka.
The hotel is located at the top of a hill overlooking parts of the city and has lovely views. The rooms a simple but attractive and the service was friendly & efficient. Although we only had breakfast it was a lovely meal and good service.
The hotel is quite small, but well run

We spent one noght here. Great spacious room with nice clean bathroom. Shower water pretty cold but otherwise great. Our room also had nice outdoor balcony to enjoy the view.
The highlight was definitely the Sri Lankan breakfast....this is a must do. Enough food for about 6 people...amazing range of 5 curries, milk rice & string hoppers.
Great place to stay

This is a nice, small hotel perched on a ridge overlooking Kandy. Our room was large and had a semi circular balcony with 180 degree views - very pleasant. For 2 people this was much better than paying more for a suite with less views. Staff very friendly and food was good. It is a bit out of town - though we walked down each day and the tuk tuks are very cheap. Recommended for those who don’t feel the need to be accommodated right in the centre of things.

Dear Roger,

Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed our panoramic views and yes, we are 1.5 km away from the city center and this is to ensure that our guests have a relaxed stay away from the hustle and bustle of the Kandy City. We hope to welcome you back to the Amaara Sky on your next visit.

We had room 303 on the top floor, supposedly a deluxe. Really disappointing for the money, torn curtains below the noisy air conditioner, tiny double bed, in need of a complete refurb.
Then at 2-3 am we were woken by a pack of barking dogs outside, and a couple of hours later loud wailing from a nearby mosque.
After complaining to the owner he did offer us the penthouse for our final night, but as this would have necessitated moving all our gear we declined.
On the positive side the breakfasts and dinner were very good, and the staff helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: avoid 303 and choose one with a queen bed
