My friend and I stayed in the Moonlit space for 4 nights. I can't say enough about the hospitality provided by Thomas. The breakfasts were delicious and we had 2 dinners at Kandy Cottage. This was some of the best Sri Lankan curries that we had in Sri Lanka. Wi-fi access was excellent. Our room was very comfortable and clean... More

The best part of my stay in Kandy Cottage was the detailed and friendly attention given by Thomas, the manager, the homey atmosphere of the living room and dining area, the delicious food and Cookie, the dog. One of the con or down side of Kandy cottage was its location. It is located a long distance from shops, restaurants, sites... More

...but the mattress made it difficult. I don't know who these people are that are giving reviews saying the beds are comfy, but they must sleep on rocks at home!!! Here are the pros: -Thomas is a lovely man who was very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed our conversations with him. He clearly takes pride in what he does. Nothing... More

Stayed in the friendly space with 3 kids--Thomas looked after us perfectly, even making particular Sri Lanka specialties on request. The kids loved Cookie, the dog, as well as breakfasts and dinners. Very relaxing and beautiful, jungle location.

We liked to stay in quieter places and to come to kandy cottages was one of the best decisions we made. Thomas, the Manager gave us very good tips, helped us wherever he can and as an surprise, he organized a birthday cake for my husband. He is a very fine man and by the way communication was very easy,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Kandy Cottage. It was a welcome escape away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. Our host Thomas took us on a morning walk and put us on a bus for a visit to the Botanic Gardens. He was friendly and helpful and also organised a driver with a van to take us on... More

This place is a real find! You will brag to your friends about having found a complete gem - albeit pretty out of the way. We had a car and so getting to and from the city of Kandy was not a problem - by public transport it would be difficult. This is a gorgeous cottage more than a century... More

A dream and Thomas such a welcoming host. We enjoyed the relaxed and gentle atmosphere of this real home environment. Great evening curries and Sri Lankan breakfasts. The natural environment of the reserve surrounds you and only a very short walk to the bustling Kandy Lake. Thank you delightful Kandy Cottage.

This truly is a little hidden gem! A little cottage tucked away in the Kandy hills in and amongst the monkeys!! Although you feel like your miles away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy, the city centre is only a 10 minute stroll away. We absolutely loved this place. After a gruelling 5 hour taxi journey all we wanted... More
