From the moment we were met with a smile, drinks and flowers, through the excellent room with stunning view, jacuzzi, and well thought through amenities, to the excellent buffets at breakfast and dinner, I couldn’t fault the hotel. Hope to return one day.

About
Description
Heritance Kandalama is shaped like the outspread wings of a bird, following the line of the cliff from which it seems to emerge. The hotel is a staggering 1km from end to end, and rises up seven floors, yet appears to More be a perfectly natural extension of the mountainside. The flat roof and timber pillars support a screen of vegetation that attracts local wildlife. The abundance of real-life animals around the hotel is complemented by wonderful large-scale sculptures within it. A metal owl is suspended outside the main restaurant; wooden elephants inhabit the lounge; a stone cobra uncoils along the terrace overlooking the infinity pool. However, while focusing on highlighting its enchanting natural surroundings, our luxury resort in Sri Lanka gives priority to providing its guests with the finest comforts and service. Less

Hi, I am not sure to confirm this. The food is good but may be not PURE vegetarian.perhaps you may order some through the menu. Unfortunately there are no Indian restaurants around.
