“Emphasis on the view”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This small hotel has an outside of the city location. It is probably 300+ meters in elevation above Kandy. It emphasizes its' city and mountain views with several room with 180 degree+ windows. My customer service experience was good, but I would have appreciated a "hotel directory" type information packet upon registering.
If you arrive in Kandy from Colombo or Negombo by bus or train, the transportation from Kandy to the hotel will cost more than your trip to Kandy. Personally, I liked the feeling of rural ambience and thought it as being well worth the inconvenience. My biggest dislike was the barking of dogs persistantly each night.

Room Tip: My room had a communications tower very close by (like 50 meters). I'd rather have had a room...

If you would like amazing views. This is the place but only if you pay for best room with balcony. Top floor. Wonderful. Food just ok. Lovely garden to sit in. Tuk tuk easy into kandy. Well worthwhile to be so very far out of town. downside is huge mast to side and smelly generator which comes on once in a while. Don't see mast if in the balcony room. Lovely, very helpful manager
We loved our stay.

Stayed one night and couldn't be more pleased about the service and overall great experience. Along with the spectacular views of the city of Kandy, the great service and cleanliness of the place gave us much to reminisce about on leaving the place. The staff was quiet, yet friendly and helpful. The place wasn't hard to find at all, as there were clear directions at every few hundred meters.

Room Tip: Ask for the deluxe rooms on the 3rd floor if available. The view is amazing, and those rooms happen...

Stayed two nights and couldn't be happier. Clean modern facilities with stunning views of Kandy and very nice and helpful staff. The food is also quite good. The bungalow has two cars on staff and you can hire them for the day for much cheaper than taxis in town. The man at the front desk can arrange a one day package for you that includes the botanical gardens, big buddha on the hill, a tea factory, lunch stop, temple of the tooth, and cultural show. Its worth it. The package is perfect for a nice day in Kandy. We had a wonderful time and never felt rushed. And the price can't be beat. Amazing value for money.

This resort is located at the top of a hill, which is one of the highest points of Kandy. The location can be difficult to get to with its steep roads, but offers a breathtaking view of the city. The staff are very friendly and are quick to offer any help. They ask you what you want for dinner and custom make the food. The place is clean and quiet, away from the din of the city.

Room Tip: Try to get the suite on the top floor with the balcony. The view of the city is breathtaking from th...

The hotel per se was pretty nice- rooms were decent, wifi was good, breakfast was basic but good. no problem with anything except the location. The hotel is very far from the city- if you do not have a driver, then no point staying here. The road to the hotel is also very narrow and not in a good condition. Thankfully we had a driver for which the hotel provides free accommodation and meals.
I had a nice stay there.
