Located inside an exquisite 19th century mansion, The Kandy House provides personalised service and a peaceful atmosphere whilst being perfectly placed to explore Kandy, Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle and the misty central highlands. Borrow one of the property’s bicycles to explore the surrounding temples and paddy fields, or challenge the staff in an impromptu game of cricket. You can also enjoy the services of a resident masseur with over 25 years’ experience as an Ayurvedic therapist.
The 9 guestrooms at The Kandy House are individually styled and named after species of butterfly found in the region, such as Peacock Royal, Indian Admiral and Black Rajah. All are thoughtfully equipped with chaise lounges, cosy armchairs and even a personal butler, to attend to your every whim. The Deluxe Rooms are cosy, whilst the Ultra Rooms are oversized, with access to a comfortably furnished veranda.
Things to do in and around The Kandy House include a dip in the inviting outdoor pool, following the journey from leaf to cup at the Ceylon Tea Museum, and touring Kandy’s British Garrison Cemetery and the Temple of the Tooth. You could also visit the iconic Sigiriya rock fortress and ancient Dambulla Caves. If you like wildlife, don’t miss the 270 acre Udawattakelle Sanctuary and the Pinnawella Elephant Orphanage.
