Stay at The Kandy House

The Kandy House is a carefully-renovated old colonial ‘Walauwa’ (ancestral mansion) in the spice-growing hills that surround Kandy. It is a small, boutique hotel offering stylish and private accommodation and attentive personal service in a beautiful natural setting.

The inspired refurbishment, with its white interiors, polished hardwood floorboards, jackwood staircase, Dutch-style antique furniture and careful injections of colour, has been a triumph. Channa Daswatta, one of Geoffrey Bawa’s proteges and Sri Lanka’s leading modern architects, provided the

creative inspiration. The bedrooms are unquestionably the finest in Kandy.

The freshwater infinity pool in the garden and wide verandas of the house provide incomparable opportunities to unwind and relax. The Kandy House is ideally located for guests to enjoy activities such as visiting the Ceylon Tea Museum, The Temple of The Sacred Tooth Relic and The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage to name a few.

Judy & Chris

We had an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. All the hotels, transfers, trips and experiences arranged by True Travel were perfect and all the arrangements went seamlessly according to plan. Our guide and driver, Thusita, was a really nice man and so knowledgeable, going out of his way to make sure that we experienced many of the Sri Lankan foods and traditions as possible. I would recommend True Travel to anyone especially if you have not visited the country before.
