Kandy House

The Kandy House is a smart and comfortable boutique hotel with only nine bedrooms, more akin to staying in a private home. Located just outside Kandy it offers a cool and stylish refuge from the bustling city.

There are beautiful gardens set within a six-acre estate, brimming with flowers and hummingbirds, which flit around as you have breakfast. With a pretty swimming pool, wrap around verandas and delicious food it is one of the best original properties in Sri Lanka.

Why we like The Kandy House

It's elegance, charm and impeccable service. 


All the nine rooms are named after butterflies which thrive in Sri Lanka and are styled individually incorporating local fabrics, elegant furniture of various generations and modernized amenities. Ultra Rooms (Red Spot Duke, Peacock Royal, Indian Admiral and Black Rajah) have access onto a veranda with chaise lounges, reading chairs, table and other antiques, ideal for more private dining and relaxing and each room is designated a personal butler. Deluxe Rooms (Sunbeam, Cornelian, Monkey Puzzle, Pioneer and Lime Butterfly) are a little smaller but all other amenities and standards of furnishing are to the same high standard. The hotel has large, lush gardens and a beautiful infinity pool.
