The Kandy House



The Kandy House is part of the Manor House Concepts collection of luxury boutique hotels in Sri Lanka. This seductive Chic Retreat provides seclusion and serenity in a lush tropical setting near Kandy, where traditional Kandyan architecture has been blended with Bawa-influenced modern, polished titanium cement floors and bathrooms. The award-winning formula at The Kandy House sets the standard for all boutique hotels in Sri Lanka to follow and such is its success that it has been featured on many hotel hot lists worldwide. Hang-out, relax or explore some of Sri Lanka's key destinations in and around Kandy, the Cultural Triangle and Tea Country. Whilst The Kandy House is a boutique hotel it just as easily be booked as a whole for family celebrations and groups of friends.  With only 9 rooms, the aim at The Kandy House is to give guests an experience of staying in a private house rather than a conventional boutique hotel. "Another showcase of the Island's architectural renaissance is The Kandy House...a manor converted into a boutique hotel furnished with antiques and arched verandahs."  New York Times


In the gardens at The Kandy House, a stunning infinity pool has been landscaped into the hillside overlooking the rice paddy fields making it an incredibly romantic settting. It goes without saying that part of the reason for staying at The Kandy House, the finest hotel in Kandy, is to explore the area, but do make sure to leave some time to relax 'at home' to enjoy the gardens and pool, challenge the staff to a game of cricket or croquet, book a massage or simply read a book.

Nature lovers should definitely visit Kandy's alternative to Kew Gardens the Botanical Peradeniya Gardens or an amble around Udawattakelle Sanctuary, 270 acres filled with flora and forest birds, porcupines and monkeys. Visit The Temple of the Tooth, wander to the Devales Shrines, or take a walk around Kandy’s picturesque Lake. Discover the glass murals in the hill-top Trinity College Chapel or organise a round of Golf at world class Victoria Golf Course just 12 miles from Kandy. Sri Lanka is famours for its coffee and tea and during your stay at The Kandy House you have the opportunity to visit the Ceylon Tea Museum, an old tea factory which includes archives of James Taylor who set up the very first tea plantation. Tatler magazine simply advises you 'hang out and be spoilt rotten'. The Kandy House is lucky enough to have its own masseur with more than 25 years' experience as an Ayurvedic therapist who uses energy healing alongside full body and head massages.


Again the critics shower The Kandy House with praise when it comes to food. "A superb restaurant." Conde Nast Traveler. "Meals, served on the verandah and prepared by a chef who shops daily for ingredients, might include exquisite ravioli stuffed with jackfruit seeds and kang-kung (water spinach), Thai grilled chicken with lime rice and okra, and a guava upside-down cake."  Madhur Jaffrey, Financial Times.  At least twice a week, guests can savour the highly acclaimed feast of ten traditional Sri Lankan curries.
