Shangri-la is the best place to stay in Kandy. Hosts Kush en Nananda are beyond friendly. Cosy room, great shower, good breakfast. They also organize yoga classes. We can highly recommend this place. Kind regards, Lies and Arne

We stayed for 2 nights in the Eco lodges after recommendations from a French couple we met in Polonurwara. We had a fabulous time, the lodges are simple but clean and comfortable. The locations is brilliant away from the craziness of kandy, the lodges are set in the forest creating a really relaxing environment. Still not too far away from... More

There can be a confusion of two places when they exist in the same premises as with hotel Castelo and Shangri la guest house in Kandy. These are like two adjoining houses where they have the same main entrance and the same path way leading to both houses.The sign boards of both places are not indicating the directions clear enough....

We stayed only one night but we really enjoyed. The house is beautifully decorated and the owner is very helpful. Also, the guest house is ideally situated. Close from city centre and Tooth Temple. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Kandy

We had stayed in another guest house before we changed to here. We arrived the guest house when there was only one big room left. The room is on the ground floor. It is simple and big but there's not much space because 2 big beds and one big table take almost the whole space of the room. On each... More
