Truly elegant!

I am not a fan of big hotels- we usually rent apartments or homes when we travel. Elegant Hotel was very attractive because it has only 5 rooms and appealed to our sensibiities. What a perfect choice

A magnificent retreat

Sublime service, great views, real peace
10
Booked for two days, stayed for five. Owner Udaya Herath, who grew up locally, is the perfectionist behind the glorious ridge-edge site, the elegant layout, the gardens, the recipes, the sacramental service, the spiffy pool. A perfect retreat from hectic, polluted Kandy, 13 km away.

Cozy hillside retreat

Great views, pool, and service
7.7
The hotel is quite a pleasant little hill lodge. It has great views from both the dining room side and pool side. There are four rooms on the upper floor and a few on the lower floor. Although we didn't see it inside, the upper floor room facing the pool seems likely to have the best view of all. Brekkie was simple but good and included both the normal fruits-and-omelette set as well as some tasty Sri Lankan nibbles. I didn't have dinner in the restaurant but the menu included a wide range of dishes. Prices did seem rather high (350 LKR for a juice - really?) but it's the only place around so that's that. The rooms are nice and everything seemed tidy and functional, though it would have been nice to have had some proper toiletries in the bath and a stocked minibar. The facilities are so nice that it doesn't make sense to skimp on the amenities and claim you're just a guesthouse. The hotel arranged a half-day tour into Kandy for 1,800 LKR and a transfer to the train station for 800 LKR by tuk tuk. These prices are probably on the higher side, but everything was organised and hassle free. All in all a great place to chill for a few days - just expect to get lost trying to find it!

Beautiful environment, very quiet, clean

It was lovely ! To get there is really quite difficult, it is very remote and often even local people didn't know the directions. I recommend to arrange a pick up by the hotel. The location is just stunning !! on a hill with 360 views on the pristine nature around. The hotel is very clean, rooms large and comfortable, breakfast just great, and you can also have dinner / lunch which didn't disappoint either. The pool area overlooks the surrounding hills, and the owners are forever cleaning and looking after the gardens. Very attentative staff too. So overall a great hotel and location, if you are after a quiet place in the middle of the nature, you are spot on here ! Kandy is some 10/15km away.

A stunning location with 360 views across the hills, amazing nature, lovely gardens, superb breakfast, quiet location although very difficult to get to / find it. Pretty far from Kandy but if you want to just chill, swim in a swimming pool, eat lovely food, and sleep well, then i do recommend this hotel.

Comfortable room, sunset view, great pool

Our stay at the Elegant Hotel was simply great. While it is located slightly away from the ciy (appx 10 km), but the hotel more than makes up for it with its quiet surroundings and breathtaking view. Not to forget the warm welcome and highly hospitable stay the friendly staff here offers. The fresh papaya juice, straight from the hotel's garden was to die for! Highly recommended!

Favorite boutique hotel of our vacation!

Majestic boutique hotel

What a hidden gem! I stayed at Elegant hotel for one night after visiting the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. We were welcomed warmly upon arrival and given a brief tour of the facilities. The hotel has balconies on both sides - one which shows a stunning view of sunset and the other of sunrise over the picturesque pool. We loved our room with a private balcony, comfortable bed, and clean bath room. Both the dinner and breakfast were delicious! Try the eggplant salad - its so yummy! The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent staff and clean rooms! We highly recommend this hotel and would love to go back again for a longer stay! The perfect place of relaxation and stunning scenery. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Best hotel in Sri Lanka

The owner, Uthaya; great food; tranquil settings
10
Uthaya, the owner, is a genuinely nice man who puts service above all else. His main aim is to make sure his customers are happy when they leave; he succeeds very well. The rooms are the cleanest I've seen in Sri Lanka; the curries are tasty and the area where the hotel is located is very tranquil. If you want to escape the noise and bustle of the city, this is the place to go.

We were greeted in a very friendly manner and offered a drink before being seen to our very clean and large room. The gardens around the hotel were very well maintained and clearly alot of attention and care had gone into making the surroundings very nice. The view is lovely and the surroundings quiet. A nice getaway from Kandy
