Amaya Lake - Dambulla

The raban drum heralds your arrival. Four older women, flashing beautiful Sri Lankan smiles, encircle a large barrel drum where they pound out a hearty rhythm. Flowing white vesak lanterns hang from the high ceilings of the open air lobby. Meander down a forested path to discover your villa, or continue to the Warichchi Village and begin a weeklong journey in the Ayurvedic Spa.
Set on 12 hectares bordering Kandalama Lake . Paths wind through the natural forested grounds, with 92 Sri Lankan villas scattered amongst the trees. A terrace fronts each villa, with a traditional long seat moulded into the patio. Enjoy the view as you sit next to a tree-trunk column supporting the red-tiled roof.

Experience Ayurvedic therapies such as herbal body massages and facial treatments, offered in seven treatment rooms. For guests on Rejuvenation Programmes, two Shirodhara rooms provide this powerful treatment, directing a continuous stream of warm oil on the centre of the forehead.
High wooden ceilings tower overhead, providing room for fresh breezes and views of the surrounding nature. A buffet of Sri Lankan delights with rich spicy aromas sits alongside a wide selection of international dishes. Fresh local fruits grace a table of Sri Lankan and European style sweets.
