Brand New hotel, beautifully decorated, with great swimming pool and garden. Great food for both dinner and breakfast. Remote location, you will need a driver. The best accomodation we stayed in Sri Lanka.

We stayed at this small hotel for a few days last week to visit Kandy, really pleased that we made the effort to stay a little way out of town. We were met with fresh juice from the garden and towels . The hotel has the most amazing views, our room had a wall of 4 windows/ doors and a... More

While located a bit outside of Kandy proper, the views, peaceful atmosphere, and staff make the location well worth being outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. Perched on a mountain top, he views are spectacular, as is the infinity pool that looks upon lush gardens. The location is quite close to the temple loop for those looking... More

The elegant hotel may be far away from the kandy railway station but it is located in a paradise in the hills. The setting on the hillside is spectacular. The huge property has only a few rooms so we felt like royalty in the hotel, the gardens and the pool. Our hosts were so warm and friendly, It was actually... More
