This property, a 10 minute drive from Kandy, is incredibly bright and contemporary with fantastic views of the lush hillside.

The restaurant serves Sri Lankan, Continental as well as Mexican dishes for breakfast and dinner. If you fancy a day relaxing you might enjoy some time around their outdoor pool or even in their private sauna.
