Nature Walk Resort
Ranked #17 of 56 Hotels in Kandy
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed at this place for a night during our visit to Kandy. It is located very close to the Kandy cultural centre that hosts the cultural show that was part of our itinerary. Located in a very quiet part of the town, a good night`s sleep is guaranteed. It is also a short walk from the Kandy lake, however since it is located at a slightly elevated height, the last leg of the walk would be uphill. Full marks for the room and the staff. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable, so that when we woke up in the morning, we were fresh and raring to start the day. The staff was courteous and very hospitable in ensuring that we had a great stay, and the food served was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place if you happen to be in Kandy.

Hotel is very well located. Walking distance to central Kandy, but just behind the corner of the hustle and bustle of the city center. Last part to get to hotel is a steep road up the valley. This means very nice views for the rooms located in the front, the rooms facing the back have a view of the mountain very close by which is much less. Ask for a room upfront. We stayed in a room facing the valley which was ultra clean, looked like recently refurbished with a little balcony in front of the room. Nice to sit on early in the morning with a good view across the valley and watching the monkeys cross the street on the electricity wires. The monkeys are regular visitor of the balconies; we even found a couple mating while two other monkeys were going berserk on the roof of the Kandy Lake Club. The Kandy Lake Club gives dance shows every night between 5.30 and 6.30, which is the only moment you have some noise. On the other you need not to go far to watch a show. Staff is very attentive and willing to help with imposing themselves. Breakfast is included and before the usual toast and eggs they give a nice fruit salad. Wifi works in room. Good value.

Clean rooms, friendly service. Ask for the room facing the valley - you'll be treated to a fabulous dawn vista. It's a tu- tuk ride from the centre of Kandy, a bit too much to walk. But it's nice to escape the hustle and bustle. It's quiet, apart from the drumming and exuberance from the early evening cultural show that take place next door to the hotel, all adds the the atmosphere!

This guest house is in a quiet area of Kandy. The hotel looks down a small valley over the town, see photo which is taken from the hotels front veranda. The hotel is very clean and tidy and the manager during our stay was very attentive. Right next door is the Sri Lankan cultural centre which performs traditional Sri Lankan dance.

I gave this hotel an overall rating of Very Good because I believe it was very good value for money based on what we were spending for our arranged tour. It is by no means an upmarket hotel, but for what is on offer I found it very good.

My assessment:
• Our room had 2 single beds pushed together as a double.
• Fan and AC.
• The room opened on to a side veranda, nice to let natural light in but no view.
• This is the first place we stayed in Sri Lanka that had hot & cold water at the bathroom sink.
• Noise travels a bit in this hotel due to the hard surfaces.
• The hotel is on 3 levels and the stairs are at an easy slope.
• No lift so wheel chairs or bad knees and hips may be a problem.
• During our 2 night stay there were all European / western people staying in the hotel.
• No TV or fridge in the room.
• Front desk has power point adapters for loan.
• Beer is available in the restaurant.
• The food is nice and is made in a clean kitchen open to the dining area, so you can see what is going on.
• Breakfast is simple, fruit, eggs on toast and juice.
• It is about 200m walk down to the main road with various shops including small convenience store and laundry.
• Free WiFi in foyer.
• Sri Lankan driver accommodation at hotel.
• Watch for the hundreds of monkeys passing the hotel in the morning, do not leave your window open during this time.

Overall I found this hotel very good for our tour. It was clean with good food and comfortable, I would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: If staying a couple of days consider a front room with a view of the valley

We stayed in Nature Walk for 4 nights in January 2013. We took a tuk tuk from the train station for 300 rupees to get there. It is a little far from the center, but no more than a 15 minute walk and half that to the Tooth Temple. Our room was basic but clean. The bathroom was only okay because the shower got everything wet and there was an open window right to the reception/dining area. Our room did have nice double doors to the "balcony" but it was too small to even stand on and there was no view. However, each floor has a common area we sat at to enjoy a good view. Ruwan, who was very friendly, helped us with excursions to the Cultural Triangle and the elephant orphange (which we wouldn't recommend) but the drivers spoke good English and were fair with prices. Breakfast was fresh and typical Sri Lankan. We had dinner there once and were pleasantly surprised with the taste and price. Kandy was a lovely city and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room in the front of the building, one with a sitting terrace.
