    Great for a romantic get away”

    Excellent views, rooms, F&B and everything else. The setup is mainly for western tourists, with their hammocks, poolside bars and tea on the verandah. Quite secluded, so make sure you ask for directions to the hotel. But a nice place just to laze around for 2 nights. Pity we only had a night.

    Great stay ”

    A little surprised as the amazing view of this hotel, it’s around 7km outside of Kandy (20 mins Tuk Tuk in). The views and the pool are amazing of the surrounding hills. Room was very clean, bed very comfortable, great AC, and a powerful shower. The pool was very good too, picture postcard views. The onsite restaurant is also very good, it’s a western hotel so not local food prices but still reasonable, and I wouldn’t expect you’d want to get a Tuk Tuk into Kandy at night to eat. (Hotel will organise taxis and Tuk tuks) The hotel severed amazing dinner and breakfast. All the hotel staff were great and I couldn’t fault anything for a couple of relaxing days. I would definitely stay again

    Stay in Kandy”

    Probably the best hotel in our whole stay in Sri Lanka, the room and the bathroom were very spacy and comfortable. The view from the bedroom was amazing. Overall, it is the atmosphere which is very pleasant. The decoration and furniture give you a feeling of relaxation and peace place. The morning we can enjoy the breakfast on a terrace where we can observe many types of birds...Only little drawback, the location...but otherwise only good things. I recommend and I will definitively come back...

    Top staff and facilities a little out of town”

    The hotel is situated a little out of town and is not near anything but that is exactly what makes it so special! Beautiful views throughout with an amazing pool. Staff always have a smile on their faces and are always happy to help! Amazing first trip to kandy (surrounds). Hotel was also able to get me the best tour guide for several trips throughout kandy (make sure to ask fot Micheal as a driver/guide!) Really nice hotel outside the busy side of town. Only downside is the hotel restaurant food is a little on the expensive side however taste is worth it.

    Stunning one nighter”

    I have to say that we almost didn’t make it there, as our driver could not find due to issue with google map. But so glad we did get there, we said ‘it better be worth it’ after it taking 1.5 hours instead of 45 mins from Kandy- it definitely was! As we entered the gates, our jaws dropped & eyes lit up. Everything from that moment was fantastic. Service was top notch, food was the best of our hole so far (curry & rice spectacular). Room was beautiful (presidential on top floor). Garden & pool immaculate. So peaceful and serene. Just wished we could have stayed longer, but with train tickets booked we couldn’t. They kindly packed our left breakfast to take on the train. If you want a retreat away from the city in a perfect boutique hotel, this place is perfect. It is 45 mins up the mountain and some parts bumpy, but worth it

    A hidden gem”

    I would say this place is a real hidden gem. Wonderful facility, nice setup and beautiful ambience and view. We really loved it here. The only set back was the location, it is far hidden in a deserted place with a small road leading to it. A bit of a distance from Kandy town too. Coming back at night in the rain was a little scary, otherwise it was awesome. Nice friendly staff and very accommodating as well.

    Good stay but encountered power failure ”

    Stunning view over the hill; nice pool; value for money

    The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of kandy city but it's all worth it. Overall a good stay with a stunning view but we encountered power failure on the final night, couldn't even bath as the shower pump relied on electricity. Spoke to the staff but we were simply told that there's nothing they can do about it. The owner came in later and apologized for the inconvenience, he offered to arrange a free dinner for us but he forgot that we were checking out on that day. Well I guess we were just being unlucky on that particular day. We are not very impressed with Sri Lanka as a travel destination (people are always desperate to make some quick bucks off tourist so be very careful when anyone tries to approach u or offer to take photographs for you, don't walk in to any eatery without menu and price display), but the only comfort of the entire trip is that we had a nice place to chill at elegant hotel (minus that power failure night)

Service is excellent with smiling personel Owner is very nice and proud of his garden with all the fruits trees planted by himself and that he is serving to guests Swimming pool is great with a breathtaking view. You have spots for sunrise (swimming pool) and sunset (room upstairs) During our stay, there was 5 rooms and 3 more being built (no troubled by that). Honestly, owner definitely has the sense for the details that makes the difference! We highly recommend this place for couple or family if you are looking to rest in a quiet lovely location.

    Quiet Stay at Elegant Hotel”

    Gardens / Surroundings, Ambience, Staff

    Excellent hotel located high up a hillside in a rural location. Room, food, staff, views all brilliant and highly commendable. Currently in process of building a swimming pool which will be a great addition to the place. Location is approx 12km from Kandy & 3km along a single track road therefore transport is recommended / required. Only has 4 rooms and often booked well in advance for a reason. Rated very highly on trip advisor and justifiably so.

    We took a round-trip around Sri Lanka and stayed in quite a few places - but Elegant Hotel was absolutely no 1. The room has quite spacious terrace with outstanding view on adam's peak etc. But what was most stunning was the quality of service, the owner of hotel and his staff are extremly friendly and nice people. They will realy spoil you with amazing local food and nice chat. Can't pick anything better around Kandy. Price is also reasonable. We would love to come back there one day.
