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.

Neither the bill nor the change is ever give to me (even if I asked for it, or gave the money myself). Iuri typically gets served first (and then makes a point of passing me the dish/glass). Also when it comes to making decisions such as renting a room, taking a ride, purchasing something… vendors address Iuri only and leave me aside. I grew used to it ...
... have any fixed plans yet, so we decided to leave Colombo and go to Galle. I don’t know what took us there. The only reason that I remember because people talk about Galle so much. I was curious and wanted to know the overview from my side. We have got the train schedule yesterday at Colombo Railway Station, so we don’t have to leave in a rush. The receptionist guy from the Guest House that we are staying said we can take the Train to Galle from ...
... all migrate to the lake to drink.
They were beautiful to watch, interesting to see how they socialize and protect the young.
The guide was a little pushy- insisting we take certain pictures, at one point taking my camera away from me and making me pose in front of the elephants.
When a few other trucks arrived and the elephants started moving, he rushed us around to the other side of a little group of trees, which was ...
