We stayed 4 nights with Razik and his charming family. The guesthouse is a tranquil haven surrounded by a lovely garden above the bustle of Kandy town. The food was the best we had in Sri Lanka. Razik's wife is a most accomplished director of operations and runs a slick but chilled operation. We ate in a number of expensive... More

We stayed with Mr and Mrs Razik last january. The lodge itself is a little gem, a tranquil haven in busy Kandy, tastefully decorated, quiet location, nice views and worth every extra Dollar you might pay compared to other places. The spacious rooms are very clean and with a beautiful terrace. Only a few rooms in the big house are... More

We stayed at Royal Tourist lodge for 2 nights on our 'flash packing' tour of Sri Lanka. We couldn't have wished for a better host in Razik - who helped us sort out Tuk Tuks to explore the surrounding area and was so helpful in his tips - definitely visit the temple in the evening if you can! Sitting out... More

Our stay in Royal Tourist Lodge was excellent. Friendly, caring hosts who were attentive to our needs and assisted with all aspects of our stay. The rooms are well laid out with a comfy bed and great patio/garden area. The food was tremendous and we couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. Highly recommended! Duane and Sarah

A friendly homestay with caring hosts: Situated just a 10-15 minutes walk from the lake you will find this perfectly clean and nicely designed lodge. We had a big room with a beautiful terrace, and enjoyed the quiet of the location and the attention of the family.

We stayed here three nights while touring the Hill Country and owners Razik and his family were very welcoming making our stay very enjoyable. Although in the Lakeside Area of Kandy this lovely guest house was far enough away from the busy main streets to give the impression of being in a sleepy countryside village. Beautiful view from our balcony... More
