Follow the dirt road apprx. 1km uphill to find the cozy, comfortable and spotless hotel. A bit away from downtown Kandy but a nice getaway for travellers who prefer tranquility. Owner Mr. Udaya has nine people on his team, Ms. Pavi being the only lady employee. All staff extremely polite, ready to assist and pleasant to deal with. Mr. Udaya... More

We loved this hotel. It is small, peaceful and friendly. It has very nice rooms, a great swimming pool, excellent food and friendly staff. The environnement is very nice, with fantastic views over the hills and the jungle. All in all, it is a great place but you do need to be aware that it is a 45 minute drive... More

A little outside Kandy, not easy to find, but the location is exceptional. The peace and the view of the place is truly unique. Even the staff and the owner of the hotel are very nice and helpful. The pool is clean and well kept as everything else. The breakfast is good and plentiful! Well done, keep it up :)

The first thing that strike you as you approach Elegant hotel is the views in both directions. Stunning vistas on the hills around Kandy from each top floor bedroom as well as the poolside. The next thing is the very nicely furnished rooms with a great bathroom. We went here for 2 nights to take it easy after days of... More

We had two nights here, enjoyed it enormously, met nice fellow guests, ate great food. Highly recommended, and amazing value for the quality.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay here and enjoyed the food. The views are stunning when the clouds lift and the owner cannot do enough to help. It is quite clear from the website that this place is a few miles out of Kandy so it seems very unfair of people to complain about it.

It is a beautiful peaceful property. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay there. The owner Mr. Udaya and the staff are very helpful and cooperative.
