The award-winning Kandy House is perfectly situated to explore the many historical attractions of iconic Kandy such as the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and the Botanical Peradeniya Gardens. Previously an ancestral manor, built in 1804, Kandy House has been lovingly transformed into a boutique hotel. Here, just nine individually decorated rooms are named after butterflies, which thrive in Sri Lanka. Guests can choose from four Ultra Rooms or from five Deluxe Rooms, each styled with local fabrics and elegant furniture.
The hotel offers a delectable fusion of international menus, highlighted with typical Sri Lankan Flavours. A sparkling infinity pool offers the perfect respite in between sightseeing adventures whilst soothing Ayurvedic massages are given in-room by an experienced masseuse. In addition to the many attractions of Kandy, guests can while away their quiet time with a game of cricket with the hotel’s staff or grab a board game, DVD or good book from the Kandy House library. Alternatively, guests can hop onto a bicycle to explore their surrounds or walk to the nearby Degaldoruwa Cave Temple.
What we love about The Kandy House
- Try your hand at Carom, a traditional Sri Lankan game that is somewhere between billiards and table shuffleboard, or a perhaps enjoy game of croquet on the lawn.
- Mealtimes are a sumptuous affair. We recommend the skewer of paprika and ginger marinated tuna or try the chermoula-crusted mullet with tomato and avocado salsa.
- Yoga enthusiasts can arrange a private class (bookings to be made in advance and subject to availability) including postures (asana) and breathing and relaxation techniques (savasana).
