Amaara Sky stands tall at the edge of a cliff and has 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and the city of Kandy below: even the golden canopy of the Temple of the Tooth and the city centre lake can be spotted from here. Amaara Sky spreads across four floors and has light and airy interiors. The Sri Lankan owners contribute much towards preserving the local arts and the interiors are used as an space to display the work of up and coming young artists. The hotel has well-appointed bedrooms and suites, a restaurant serving Sri Lankan and western cuisine and a small spa. Children are welcome, but require close parental supervision due to the balconies and staircases.
