The Kandy House From The Garden

The Kandy House

A relaxing heritage boutique hotel located in Kandy, Sri Lanka

9 Rooms


A tranquil house close to Kandy

A palatial heritage manor that feels like a home from home, with spectacular views and an idyllic infinity pool.

Built in 1804 by the Chief Minister of the Kandyan Kingdom, this ancestral manor enjoys a secluded and tranquil spot not far from the cultural city of Kandy. Ideal for honeymooners, the house has been restored and boasts a certain magnetic charm thanks to the subtle blend of elegant antiques and contemporary style. A stay at Kandy House feels more like visiting friends than checking into a hotel.

The gardens and infinity pool have been built into the hillside, so guests can enjoy views of the surrounding valley and the paddy fields below. Kandy House also has its own masseur with over 25 years of experience as an Ayurveda therapist. His massages will leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated.

You can dine on a fusion of European and Sri Lankan food, with a feast showcasing 10 traditional Sri Lankan curries twice a week. All ingredients used in Kandy House cuisine are sourced from the local markets and the chefs rustle up a meal to remember. Private lunches on your own terrace can also be arranged.

Whilst staying at the Kandy House you can walk to the Udawattekele Sanctuary which is just 2 miles from the hotel. Another option is a bicycle ride into Kandy town or through the surrounding paddy fields. Kandy is home to the famous Temple of the Tooth, as well as the Buddhist Museum and the National Museum. If you want to find out more about the colonial era then the British Garrison Cemetery is just a few miles away, built in 1817 for British nationals who died in Ceylon.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
