The Kandy House is a small private hotel with just seven rooms. It is just outside Kandy, away from the chaos of the city centre, and has spacious gardens and a swimming pool.
Due to the building's historic architecture, there is no air-conditioning and water heaters are small.
This means that baths will be run for you by the house staff.
Why we like it
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 cool and stylish refuge from this bustling city. There are beautiful gardens set within a 6-acre estate, brimming with flowers and humming birds, 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.
