I have been all over the world, but I've never had a more peaceful sanctuary awaiting me than Elephant Stables. Every single detail has been thought through. The design is a beautiful mix of modern and authentic.
The room is gorgeous (I stayed in the Lemongrass) with an amazing view. The rain shower was beyond with teak wood slats as its flooring. The bed, one of the most comfortable I've slept in, had mosquito netting surrounding it.
The food was impeccable and they custom fit into my peculiar diet needs.
But it as the staff that made everything just perfect. The resident manager, Nalaka, was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Nihal, the best bar man in Kandy, had great humor and couldn't have gone more out of his way to please. They have a (very affordable) shuttle service back and forth to Kandy center and the driver is super great.
I loved every moment of being there. You will, too.
