The Ambokka project offers a narrative based on elevation and enlightenment, promoting a spiritual and sustainable experience in the heart of Sri Lanka. The project is anchored in the middle of a cultural triangle, the points marked by the island’s three histori-cal capitals; the hill capital of Kandy, the first Sinhalese capital of Anuradhapura and the medieval capital of Polonnaruwa.

From the gate of the domain, visitors enter through a wild, overrun woodland. Passing mysterious pavilions, they are lead to the height of the hill where an endless pano-rama reaches out over the island. This journey through the wood’s enclosure and obscurity contrasted with the open panorama of the main building remains picturesque yet discrete as the hotel merges organically within the landscape.
