Rm 4 This house is also a typical colonial House in the middle of the jungle. It's very welcoming. And the owner is one of a kind, he goes out of his way to help, on one occasion he offered to cook for us almost at midnight which made us feel at home. The outdoor space is very nice and... More

Elegant Hotel is a retreat away from the hustle and bustle from Kandy. It is a distance from Kandy, approx 20 mins drive, however, it is worth the travel time. The hotel is small, but the rooms very spacious with great views. Our room faced west, lying in bed a great view to Adam's Peak. The infinity pool was beautiful... More

This is a lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The rooms, garden and pool all look even better than the photos. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was tasty and well presented, but unfortunately the curries made both my wife and I very sick on consecutive nights, which took a couple of days out of our honeymoon.

My husband and I and our twin toddlers stayed here after driving from Negombo and are so glad we did. From start to finish we were treated with some of the best hospitality I've experienced from a hotel. This hotel doesn't have many rooms so the team is small but very dedicated. We arrived in the evening and since it... More

Kandy is a very nice city but like all cities full of traffic. After you spend your day visiting it, Elegant Hotel is a very relaxing place in the hills with a stunning view over the "Buddha Mountain". Enjoy the pool and relax. Nice comfortable rooms and friendly staff.
