Excursions

We pre-empt the smallest need to ease your day-to-day cares. With a quiet commitment to servicing guests, we ensure a total respite for your relaxation. At Amaya Hills, guests will enjoy a vantage point from which to experience the sights and sounds, unique to Kandy. Should you decide to explore this breathtaking city away from the quiet respite of the resort, a number of opportunities await - a intriguing blend of tradition and culture.

Guests could begin with a tour of the picturesque Kandy Lake that lies at the heart of the city, then visit the nearby Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. Take in the natural beauty of the botanical gardens or simply enjoy a walk along the bustling streets of Kandy – a city which offers beautiful views at every street corner.

Tea Museum

Located close to the Hanthana mountain range is the Tea Museum which is approximately 5km from the Kandy town. Here guests will acquaint themselves with a unique concept that strives to preserve the rich history behind the island’s favourite beverage – tea.

Some of the exhibits at the museum are more than a 100 years old and include exhibits such as the oldest known packet of tea which is still in its original packing, a photograph of the largest tea bush and a hand written visiting agent's report dating back to 1895. These are just a few pieces of history relating to the tea industry that await those who are eager to discover its stories.

Arrangements can be made for a vehicle to take guests to the Tea Museum. Please inquire at the front desk.
