Dambale is a lodge resort located on the edge of a sprawling teak estate. It is set up high in the hills with uninterrupted views across the treetops, overlooking the ancient Kingdom of Dambulla – a breathtaking hideaway that helped us feel as if we had really got away from it all and escaped the grind of urban living. Our chalet was made entirely of glass, a bit of a greenhouse at times, but on the plus side affording truly spectacular views from our four-poster bed.
