Heritance Kandalama (Dambula), Sri Lanka

For holiday makers looking for something a little off the beaten track, the Heritance Kandalama may just be the perfect vacation spot. Built into the rock face, the hotel is situated only a few miles from the nearest town, Dambulla, but you’ll feel hundreds of miles away from city life as elephants and monkeys roam free in the hotel’s grounds.

Designed by Sri Lanka’s famed architect, Geoffrey Bawa, the infinity pool (one of three pools at the Kandalama) blends in seamlessly with the Kandalama Lake so you’ll almost feel as if you’re taking a dip in the lake itself.
