One of the best times in Kandy. Peaceful surroundings to unwind after a busy day and relax. The hotel is located on a hill top and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. The hotel is about 10Km from Kandy town. Peradeniya gardens is only a few kilometers away. The staff specially Udaya the owener was very friendly and always eager to... More

We spent 2 glorious weeks here June/July of 2015 and were not disappointed. Udaya and his staff were very friendly, attentive and professional in everything they did. They went the extra mile to ensure we were happy, well fed and pampered. Chandanah is the star of the staff--his earnest smile and great demeanor were refreshing as this was our first... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Elegant Hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. We were upgraded to a first floor room that had spectacular views from the front over pool and beyond and the back. The room was very clean and well appointed. The bathroom was recently renovated and lovely. The garden is amazing and the... More

Yes, the road is a bit rough and, at first, we weren't sure we were going to the right place (your driver can call the hotel for directions), but when you get there the views are so amazing and the property so nicely set up, with friendly and helpful staff, that we instantly forgot about the road.

We stayed here for three nights in June on our honeymoon and were extremely happy with our stay. We did not leave the hotel from when we checked in until we checked out!! As it is some distance from Kandy, there is not a lot to do around the hotel, which had a great appeal to us after a few... More

Amazing views, wonderful clean and beautifully presented premises. The staff were constantly helpful in asking if we needed anything. The food was of an incredible standard and the outdoor area lit by candles for dinner added such a romantic feel to the place. Our only criticism to this establishment was upon leaving we asked for a drop off to kandy... More

We had great fun here. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area and it was then great fun to come back and relax by the pool. This was the first place we stayed in and it was really a great place to find our feet.
