Outstanding service and facilities, giving you the 5* experience
Our rating: Luxury | Property style: Boutique Hotel
Providing exclusivity and history amongst the hills of Kandy, Kandy House is a luxurious boutique property with only nine rooms. This was the home of the king's Chief Minister, Ratwatte Adigar, who betrayed his king to the British in the early 19th Century as Ceylon fell into colonial hands in 1815. The 200-year-old property has now been restored to include modern comforts, yet still retains Ratwatte family photos and antique furniture. The white interiors, polished hardwood floorboards, jack wood staircase and Dutch-style antique furniture all add to the historic setting. The freshwater pool in the garden provides an irresistible opportunity to unwind and relax under the shade of tropical trees while the restaurant veranda and Ayurvedic masseur provide an excuse to indulge.
