Kandy City Hotel by Earl's
Kandy Lake Front,Kandy - View on map
"Stayed at this Kandy City Hotel for 1 night during a recent holiday trip to Sri Lanka. It is a new hotel and has just been in operations for a few days when we stayed there. Everything is still new and even our room had a fresh smell of paint when we first entered it. Locationwise, it is located at the heart of Kandy City, so it offers close proximity to the lake, the Tooth Relic Temple, Kandy City Center mall, as well as restaurants and supermarkets. I think location is the best thing about this hotel. Breakfast was also very tasty and well prepared, for which we greatly appreciated. In general, accomodation in Sri Lanka is expensive if we compare it with the rest of Asian countries. So, at the rate we were given, I really have nothing serious to complain about this hotel. If I need to mention 1 flaw, I think the bathroom in the room is too small, while it is obvious that the room itself still has a lot of unused space. So, I was wondering why they didn't make the bathroom a little bit bigger than it is now. Also, the drain stinks badly so I think the hotel needs to do something about it immediately. "

Amaya Hills Kandy
Heerassagala,Kandy - View on map
"I visited Sri Lanka for a short period, after staying in Amaya for one day, decided to stay longer, seeing the excellent service they provided. Staff was very friendly, I felt like home. Food was exceptional with a variety of choices. Walking tracks around the mountain leading to the top of Hantana was an excellent experience with picturesque views. Inside the hotel with its grandiose ancient looks and spaciousness surrounded by lush green forest creating a calm peaceful environment for anyone who would know how to enjoy the beauty of nature. Best hotel in Kandy for Kandyan experience. "

Radisson Hotel Kandy
Kandy Lake Front,Kandy - View on map
"I’ve been unhappy with Kandy hotels so far until my stay at Ozo. It’s up the road from the lakefront, and has a lovely relaxed look and feel to it. I enjoyed both lunch and dinner there, and the buffet breakfast was generous and tasty. The staff are impeccably trained, and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I hope this hotel keeps up its standards. For now it’s your best bet in Kandy. "

Earls Regency Hotel

"Really nice colonial style hotel in Kandy. Rooms are lovely and is is only 5 minutes away from he centre of Kandy.Food is good and there is a lovely bar which looks down the river. Make sure you visit the temple when you are in Kandy as it is the best temple we visited in Sri Lanka. You are also very close to the Tea Plantations which are really beautiful in stunning countryside. Lovely hotel, very classy."

Santani Resort & Spa
Gomara,Kandy - View on map
"Three nights was not enough. We wished we had booked for four nights. No. We wished we could have stayed the week. They had rooms with a view of the mountains, valleys, brilliant star-filled night skies and entertained by bird and insect songs. They offered us three meals a day with meals made up of exciting fusion style choices cooked to perfection by world-class chefs. You can go for nature walks in the day, swim, attend yoga classes or sign up for spa treatments. We opted to sleep early, wake up early to watch the sunrise. The journey up to the secluded spot can be a bit hard but it is all worth the effort. Go and unwind and heal. There's nothing else you want to do."

Swiss Residence Hotel- Kandy
Kandy Central,Kandy - View on map
"We had wonderful time at Swiss Residence Kandy. Peaceful place and easy access to the hotel and very short distance to Kandy city. The parking is good and security guards are helpful to park vehicles. Welcoming is good with welcome drink. The room quality is excellent and way better than we expected. Doorbell and door access panel of hotel room is modern and love the way they arranged bathroom and toilet separately. Bathroom well cleaned, and quality bathware use. The hotel staff professional and helpful. The view we get from the hotel was excellent. Day time, and night time both were amazing. The room quality, bed, air conditioning unit all were perfect. We only had the breakfast from hotel and really enjoyed the meal, buffet included all craving food options including English breakfast and Sri Lanka meals. The hotel swimming pool is well maintained and clean, the place that pool located also great. At last this is underrated but one of the best hotels in Kandy to me. Only concern you should remember, there is sudden steep hill while accessing to the hotel and better you put sport mode/ power mode of your vehicle when you near hotel."

Kandy City Stay
Kandy Central,Kandy - View on map
"The hotel stuff are friendly. The boss is friendly and helpful too. He helped me to amend my bookings accordingly as i had booked more days than i required initially. He also revised my booking cost accordingly. The breakfast provided by the hotel is very generous, based on the amount we paid for. It is really value for money. The hotel has lift which is ideal for elderly who has problem climbing stairs. The location of the hotel is good too as it is near Kandy city area. "

More about Kandy

Centrally located in the middle of Sri Lanka, and enjoying a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, Kandy is an exciting city with plenty of cultural charm and historical significance.

The city is easily accessible by bus or train, so international travelers arriving at Bandaranaike International Airport can arrive in Kandy via taxi, bus, or rail. Once in Kandy, travelers will not be short of things to do or places to see.

As the home of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, Kandy hosts many people who visit as tourists or religious pilgrims. The temple is believed to be one of the most holy places for those in the Buddhist faith as it houses a tooth relic from the Buddha. There are many hotels near the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, making it convenient for travelers to get to the temple relatively easily. The entire city is easily navigated by walking or using the city bus.

The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is a favorite among most who visit Sri Lanka, but even more so among those traveling with children. There are many elephants that roam around the grounds, and watching them eat or splash water around can provide hours of entertainment.
