The Kandy House

The Kandy House is a brilliant, small, boutique hotel capable of offering stylish accommodation and attentive personal service in a beautiful natural setting.

The ‘Walauwe’ features light white interiors, polished hardwood floor boards, jackwood staircase, Dutch-style antique furniture and careful injections of colour.

The bedrooms, nine in all, are the finest in Kandy, with four-poster beds, soft white linen, concrete-washed bathrooms and Victorian bathtubs. They are all air conditioned, but the cooler high-country air and the ceiling fans ensure this is not always necessary.

The freshwater infinity pool in the garden provides an irresistible opportunity to unwind and relax under the shade of tropical trees, while the wide verandas provide the perfect place to doze away the afternoon with your favourite novel.

Only a short drive from Kandy, this 200-year-old property is a relaxing alternative for those seeking a break from the bustle of city life. Please note that only children over 12 are allowed entry.
