Heritance Kandalama

Dambulla, Sri Lanka

Melding luxury and tradition, the 5-star Heritance Kandalama in Sri Lanka pampers guests in natural splendor. Built overlooking the "eighth wonder of the world" — the Sigiriya rock fortress  — the hotel is a popular spot for tourists hoping to check out the 5 nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as monkeys that like to climb up the balconies. Inspired to see more? Take a short drive to the Minneriya and Kaudulla national parks to watch the hundreds of wild elephants that gather on the reservoir shores during the dry months.
