Last October we stayed at the Grand Kandyan and it was a fabulous stay. The accomodations and service was impeccable. Staff were hospitable and the breakfast staff, chef whose incharge of breakfast, hotel attendants, accounts/reservations depatment staff went above and beyond to make us feel like home since we visited from overseas. Special gratitude to restaurant manager Hilary, Mercy, Sandaruwan, Keith, and Bandara. Special thanks to Thusith Samarawera (Generl Manager) for honoring and accommodating us during a passing of our loved one during our stay. Thank you again for a wonderful and a memorable stay.

We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday on 12th November. We had a very nice and delicious birthday cake with a buffet. All the food was excellent with good stand. Superb service done by the staff. Just we gave a call for them to arrange the things but Specially Ms. Madushani, Mr. Mohan & Mr. Manthika were done there duties far beyond. I can recommend to anybody to visit and enjoy there hospitality as well as there food varieties. Thank you very much for your valuable service to make our moment as a good memory. Please countinue your hospitality in future also. Near day we would like to visit again.

I'm writing this review fairly late, as I stayed at the property during end September this year. I was attending a function and stayed for 01 night but the service, food and ambience was sublime. I have visited this property a few times in the past but never stayed but I would say that Thusith (GM) and the team did a remarkable job and keep up the good work! Will definitely return.

Fantastic site overlooking the valleys below. Prompt service at arrival and luggage delivery. They even check your room to see if items are left behind. Distinctive decorating style throughout. Food was fantastic. Limited information and signage around accessing the pool. Hard to find a towel.
