DAY 02 & 03: DAMBULLA

Heritance Kandalama is a great hotel to rest and relax; there are 3 swimming pools in this facility.

 

KACHCHAN POOL

This infinity pool shows the ingenuity of the architect Geoffrey Bawa the edge of the pool blends with the water of Kandalama lake, giving the impression that you are in the lake itself. Siripala, a traditional flautist from the village, also plays here in the evenings.

Open: 7am – 8pm daily & Depth: 1.1 meters – 1.8 meters

 

KALUDIYA POOL

Kaludiya means “black water” – the bottom of the pool is the dark bedrock on which the structure of the hotel rests. The surface of the rock has been coated with plastic to prevent water seepage and make it easier to clean the pool.

This natural pool is another example of Geoffrey Bawa’s ingenious blending of the natural topography with the architectural features of the hotel.

Open: 8am – 8pm daily & Depth: 1.3 meters – 1.7 meters

 

RASHMI POOL

The Rashmi Pool is one of the few features of Heritance Kandalama that doesn’t start with K. Rashmi means “ray of sunlight” – the pool is located at the western end of the Dambulla wing and catches the rays of the setting sun, making it ideal for an evening swim.

This is the largest pool of the hotel and is also equipped for sports like water polo.

Open: 8am – 8pm daily & Depth: 1.1 meters – 1.9 meters.
