Originally built in 1804, The Kandy House was once the home of an aristocratic Sri Lankan family.
Set within a six-acre estate, 7 km from Kandy, this former manor house has been converted into a stunning hotel which combines classic Sri Lankan architecture with Dutch colonial furnishing and a stylish finish.
This charming boutique hotel has just nine rooms and offers guests an experience of staying in a private house rather than a conventional hotel.
The Kandy House is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing few days and it is an excellent base for exploring Kandy.
You can take a tuk-tuk into Kandy to discover the Royal Botanic Gardens (Peradeniya) and the Temple of the Tooth, the holiest Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka, before returning to the hotel for afternoon tea or a cocktail and dinner on the veranda.
The hotel has bicycles should you wish to explore the surrounding countryside, or you can take a walk through the local village and paddy fields to the nearby temple.
Alternatively you can simply relax on the cushioned teak sun-loungers beside the pool under the shade of tropical plants and trees.
The Kandy House offers guests seclusion and serenity. If you’re looking for total privacy or perhaps you’d like to celebrate a special occasion with your friends and family, it is possible to book the entire house.
