I had booked Randholee resort over the phone after we reached Colombo and I picked the phone number from the tourism brochure I picked at the airport. Wasnt biased by any reviews. It was moderately priced (though they charge a very high exchange rate) and appeared fairly new on arrival. We transferred to Kandy after staying at Dumbulla and had heard a lot about the cultural heritage at Kandy. It was a long drive with young kids and by the time we reached the Hotel it was around 9 in the night. The hotel is placed on a high hill overlooking the quaint town Kandy. So the road to the hotel is full of turns and steep. Since we reached at night the sign boards also were a little difficult to locate.
The reception and lobby is well done. We were given a room on the second floor overlooking the city and it was a beautiful sight esp in the morning when the mist would clear. The room had a very artistic touch to it and was quiet spacious, with a balcony. The bathroom was also large equipped with a tub enclosed in glass. I found the porcelain mini urns for the toiletries very novel and cute. My kids had ample space to play in the room.
We stayed there for two days in total. The breakfast spread was adequate with Sri Lankan, Continental, Indian and English food served. The pool is also open air (not temp controlled though for a cold day) and is built to give the effect as if it merges into the skies (see snap). It was a very pleasant stay here. Only the drive up to the hotel is a bit time consuming.
