TravelPod Member ReviewsAmaya Lake Dambulla
Wonderful hotel, great service and excellent restaurant. Our experience in our first week in Sri Lanka is that some hotels serve buffet style meals and they are often only luke warm or even cold, here the food is warmer (not always piping hot but there is also the possibility to get some things freshly cooked) and all served in a large, open restaurant. The rooms are small houses and superb. We have a bedroom with separate spacious sitting area and excellent bathroom with bath and shower separately. Due to activities and heavy rain yesterday, we have not been in the swimming pool but it looks excellent - huge and clean.

Today saw us embark on a long journey to Dambulla. A taxi picked us up at around 10am and we drove for an hour or so before stopping at a traditional Sri Lankan buffet for some rather spicy breakfast - beans, chick peas, fish etc. it was delicious and super cheap. We also got a coffee that was the sweetest thing I've tasted for a while, a really …
... stop at Mt. Lavinia and were asking two students where is the hostel? They were so kind and helpful, they took us to Colombo Beach Hostel. They thought that Me and Joy are cousin or siblings, hahaha. Don’t be panic, there are many hotels, Inn, Resort and Guest House around Mt. Lavinia but the price were expensive. Colombo Beach Hostel charges 1,600 Rupees for 1 person and 1 bed in dormitory, No AC and breakfast. Wow....... this is insane. Joy and ...
... truly a sight to behold.
After seeing this, it was approaching 7am, so we searched for a guesthouse nearby to get food. We stumbled upon a cute little house nestled in the trees nearby, where we gratefully devoured eggs and rotti, whilst overlooking the great waterfall. Someone remarked that this would be the ideal place to write a novel, and I have to agree. The woman who lived there suggested we climb through the forest to the top of the waterfall and into ...
... meditate with topless women around.
We climbed up old stone and marble stairs, stopping to climb iron circular staircases that were installed to take tourists to the remaining frescoes, which are beautiful.
From there we walked along Mirror wall, a pathway enclosed by a reflective wall (they put egg and something else in the plaster- it's still reflective now, but I don't know if it's because it's been restored or original).
