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. He even arranged the cab for a week to go to the other different places on my itinerary, and provide valuable insights and opinions on these other places of tourist interest. It was almost... More

This is a hotel that is very special. We originally had booked one night and ended up staying two, which was too little however we had already made another booking before arriving at Elegant. Udaya, who is the owner of the hotel, should train other hotels in service. His humble attitude and always with the intention that we enjoy our... More

Traveling through Kandy with my girlfriend with little desire for city buzz, we had booked 1 night here. We ended up 2 nights, and will always want to go back. The owner has a genuine ambition to share something beautiful, and knows how to do it with a strategy to deliver a lot to a few. This is far from... More

We came to Kandy from Negombo in hope of rest, relaxation, good views and good food. We were not dissappointed. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, from arranging day trips and cars all the way down to Galle. New Years eve was an absolute blast, an excellent buffet full of tasty treats before dancing the night away. The... More

Hotel Elegant, a guest house, is situated away from Kandy. Nestled in nature, scenic views from the hotel, good food, friendly staff, very clean, beautiful batik frames hung in all the rooms of the hotel.

This was our last stay in Sri Lanka and I must say the best. Udaya the owner was such a humble and friendly person which made the stay even more pleasurable. Bit far away from Kandy but once we reached there on 31st December I was sure there was no other place better than this one. The pool and the... More

We checked in just for one night, but the hotel provided an extremely memorable new year's eve. Well-decorated tables spread around the gardens by the pool, with an extremely tasty and varied special-menu buffet. Later in the evening there were dancing and fireworks. Breakfast offered a great mixture of Sri Lanka and western food. The hotel's hilltop position gives welcome... More

Absolutely fantastic service, rooms, views and hotel grounds. The hotel decor was tasteful and the food was as good as I have eaten anywhere. The staff were always on hand to help. The owner/manager was a real perfectionist which came across in every aspect of the hotel. I would recommend staying outside Kandy as it was more hectic than we... More

The service, breakfast, gardens, swimming pool and balcony views are excellent! You won't want to leave if you stayed here. Kandy is a small city, this hotel is located in the outskirts.
