Of all the places we stayed in SriLanka the Elegant had the most attention to detail. It's a way out of Kandy so get directions first, but well worth the journey. High up with great views and a terrace to oversee them whilst watching the sun go down. Well worth eating here, we had arranged to go out for one...

We stayed for 2 nights in the month of March. Though it is a bit difficult to reach this hotel the effort is nothing compared to how beautiful the place is. The scenary,flowers,pool and the interiors of the hotel designed is really good. They don't have many food items in their menu but whatever is there it is very good.My...

This hotel is a little difficult to review as when we visited (early March) the weather was poor with heavy rain and low visibility. The main selling point of the Elegant Hotel is its stunning location in the hills above Kandy which we were unable to enjoy. The hotel is very small with only about six rooms. It has a...

We stayed two nights which was perfect - if you're looking for a relaxing pool hotel then this is a great place. If you're using it as a base for...

The staff here go above and beyond at making you feel special, pampered and relaxed. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home. We arrived at night so had no idea what was in store for us view wise. We awoke the next morning to some of the best views I've ever seen in...

Stayed for 4 nights and we were very impressed by the quality of this boutique hotel, everything from the food to the facilities was first class. We hired a driver to take us to the sights north of Kandy - arranged through the hotel who laid on early breakfasts - because we wanted a bit more freedom than the traditional...

Used this small delightful hotel as a base for exploring Kandy and nearby~ish tourist sites. It's a great escape from the rigours of SriLankan travel. Set on a high North-South ridge it affords fantastic views of sun-rises and sunsets. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Good interactions with other guests, good value. Highly recommended.
