    Our opinion

    Hunas Falls by Amaya is a great place to stay if you want to spend time enjoying nature as well as visiting Kandy - about a 45-minute drive away.

    Hotel description

    Situated in hills about 45 minutes drive north-east of Kandy, Hunas Falls by Amaya enjoys a breathtaking setting, with expansive views over a wide open valley to one side and to a spectacular waterfall on the other. Pretty gardens, vegetable plots and a lake immediately border the hotel, with lush forests and tea estates on the mountain slopes beyond. There are 31 comfortably furnished bedrooms with en-suite bath or shower room and lovely views over perfectly manicured gardens; for something more luxurious, go for the Scottish or Japanese themed suites. Hearty meals are served at the restaurant which has a terrace looking onto the lake. Romantic dining on the bridge or near the waterfall can also be arranged. Plenty of hotel activities are available for active guests, including a swimming pool, tennis, badminton and a six-hole par-3 golf course. Children can enjoy a kiddies corner as well as pony rides and boat rides. Many people stay at Hunas Falls by Amaya for the excellent walks that can be enjoyed in the area immediately around the hotel and on Mount Hunasgiriya. The hotel’s resident naturalist is at hand to assist with information and organise walks and tours. Otters and kingfishers can be spotted in and around the lake, especially early morning, whilst fascinating flora and fauna can be found on a walk along Simpsons Forest Trail. As Hunas Falls by Amaya  lies at the edge of the Hunasgiriya Mountain, the hotel is a good base for mountain treks and mountain biking, or exploring by car and foot, around this stunningly beautiful, wild and rugged mountainous terrain. Muscle-soothing massages await the weary walker back at the hotel. Hunas Falls by Amaya is a good hotel to stay at if you want to spend some time enjoying nature and walks in the hills as well as visiting Kandy, which is 45 minutes to 1 hour’s drive away. The fairytale mountain setting and mild climate (17–24 C) also make it a popular place for Sri Lankan weddings and honeymoons.
