The Kandy House

The Kandy House is a restored ancestral home set in the hills on the edge on the historical city. Spend the days sightseeing in and around Kandy, or simply lazing in the tropical gardens by the infinity pool, being truly spoilt by the fantastic staff.

Kandy, Sri Lanka
The Kandy House
  • The former home of the last Chief Minister of the Kandyan Kingdom

  • A stunning infinity pool has been landscaped into the hillside overlooking the rice paddy fields

  • Some of the best food to be found in Sri Lanka

  • The Butterfly Bar has an excellent cocktail list, the signature offering is well worth a try


The Kandy House is an exceptional example of an ancestral home, dating back 200 years,  is set in glorious jungle gardens 15 minutes outside of the town of Kandy, the cultural capital of the island. The restoration has been undertaken with great care and the result mixes colonial charm and elegance with modern design touches. With only nine rooms the house retains an atmosphere of a private home and makes for the perfect retreat after a day out and about in the hill country and town.

Dining takes place outside on a sheltered veranda and the menu is different every day offering a fusion of traditional Sri Lankan delicacies with modern international dishes and flavours, using the freshest ingredients to be found in local markets. The fantastic cocktail list, leaves you wanting to stay one more night just to try one more.

In the gardens you will find a yoga pavilion and an infinity pool with a view to die for. You can relax with a delicious cup of green tea while enjoying the company of 59 different species of birds or the hotel will be happy to help you organize a trip to one of the many attractions within easy reach.

Location

Kandy, Sri Lanka

The Kandy House is located 20-minutes outside Kandy's town centre, close to the geographic centre of Sri Lanka.

The nearest airport is Colombo Bandaranayake Airport (10-hour 30-minutes direct flight), roughly 3-hours away by car but you are more likely to arrive with a driver as part of a trip around Sri Lanka.
