The Kandy House


Sri Lanka

The Kandy House is the former home of an aristocratic Sri Lankan family. While the Kandy House opened in 2005 as the region's first high-end boutique hotel, its roots are over 2 centuries old with traditional, elegant architecture and an impressive array of antique furniture making the experience a remarkably authentic one. All of the eight rooms (and one suite) are contained in the old manor house. The courtyard and the verandah are the house’s main attractions. The lovely infinity pool is fringed by palms and jungle foliage. It is well placed to enjoy and explore the broad selection of Sri Lanka’s primary destination in and around Kandy, The Cultural Triangle and The Tea Country. The food served is traditional Sri Lankan made from locally sourced seasonal food where possible. At Kandy house you can experience a Vittahachchi Ayurvedic therapy which improves blood circulation and gives deep relaxation. The Kandy House is peaceful and quiet. The peace is broken only by Buddhist chanting from a nearby monastery and the colourful parrots that dart from tree to tree.
Please note: The Kandy House only accepts children over the age of 12.
