Nice Modern Hotel; Friendly Staff; Great Service”
Stayed one night at Ozo, Kandy as the last leg of our 4 day family trip. Situated within 1km - 1.5km of the Temple of Tooth, next to Hotel Suisse. Hotel is equipped with all the modern amenities in a contemporary city hotel. Rooms are very good; lake-side rooms have a nice view of the lake, Udawatha Forest & the Temple of Tooth. Staff is very friendly and helpful, which is less common for a city hotel where lot of things usually are self served. They've got a good bunch of chefs & restaurant staff (especially: chef Saman) who took care of many special requirements from my family, including special dishes for my kids. Pool on the roof top - next to the bar is nice, with a great view of the lake.
Late October Visit to Kandy and Nuwara Eliya”
OZO is large and modern. Staff was welcoming and the breakfast offerings were extensive and international in scope. We opted for a room overlooking the lake which was beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely dinner in the rooftop bar/restaurant. We had previously stayed in lovely, but more traditional, lodgings in both Unawatuna and Colombo. At this point in our trip we were ready for the modern hotel and amenities we found at OZO. Extremely clean and well appointed room and hotel. One consideration however, is the location relative to downtown sightseeing in Kandy. We had a car and driver. However, older visitors on foot, may want to choose a more centrally located hotel such as the Queens Hotel.
Dear Claire, Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience at Ozo Kandy we are delighted that we were able to exceed your expectation,trust in the back of great experience you would want to visit us real soon, Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
We really enjoyed our stay in Ozo Kandy. From the friendly welcome, the excellent facilities, lovely room and great shower. The Kandy Ozo set the bar high in terms of staff and service. We enjoyed the rooftop pool and bar after a long day sightseeing in hot, noisy, and polluted Kandy. The location is excellent and it is very walkable to the lake, temple and the main shopping area. Food was of a good standard in both the main restaurant and bar.
Dear Stella Thank you very much for your ratings and review,we are delighted that your stay was pleasant and comfortable at Ozo kandy,we really look forward to have you back in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo kandy
Loved our stay here. Very professional hotel. Worth getting the suite room with the lake view and large balcony. Lovely, helpful staff and great breakfast. Easy walk or tuctuc to the main centre. We found that we were generally charged a premium around town if people found out that we were staying at OZO... so just something to watch out for. Would definitely stay at OZO Kandy again!
A lovely new hotel overlooking Kandy Lake.”
We enjoyed our two night stay at the Ozo in Kandy and would definitely recommend it to other travelers. Its location not far from the lake is good and there are lovely views of the lake and the surrounding countryside from the hotel. The rooftop pool was small but nicely designed, the rooftop restaurant was very pleasant and the buffet breakfast was excellent. The room was very spacious and well equipped. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay at the Ozo!
Dear James Thank you very much for your review, we are extremely happy that your stay was comfortable and rewarding at Ozo kandy, we would love to have you back in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo kandy
Modern facilities, great location and nice staff”
This hotel is very famous in Kandy that most people in Sri Lanka know exactly where it is once they hear we are going to stay in OZO in Kandy. Everything is quite nice except there is also a very popular rooftop bar. Local youngsters go clubbing at the bar so music might be a bit loud if you prefer quite accommodation. And if you are a single girl who just wants to have a drink at your hotel bar, please be ready that many local guys will hit on you in a super aggressive and sometimes annoying way.
Stayed at OZO for 2 days as it was our base while traveling to places around Kandy. Our rooms faced the hills and it was just a stones throw from the lake. Room was comfortable and had all the necessities a traveler would need. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Special mention however, to restaurant staff Sandaruman who was very accomodation , both during our dinner and breakfast and Chef Soorasena who cooked the best black pepper fish curry this side of the world. His dish brought back memories of my late mother-in-law's fish curry. All in all a wonderful place to stay.
Dear Hariaran Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Ozo kandy,great to see that you have enjoyed your stay while going down the memory lane with Chef Soori's dishes, we really look forward to seeing you in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
A find! ”
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.

Stayed one night. Hotel was on a hill, overlooking " Kandy Lake" near Kandy town. Can walk, but we decided to take a "Tuk-Tuk", fun ride, cost about Rs. 150. Three minute ride to town, depends on the traffic. Staff was very attentive. Dinner and breakfast was good. Front Desk Gentleman, can't remember his name, who checked us in was very professional, polite and helpful. Met few other staff members, including housekeeping. Staff does a great job in this place, KUDOS to management. Will DEFINITELY stay here again.
Dear Narendra, Thank you very much for taking time to review us on Agoda platform and its great to see that you have enjoyed your stay at Ozo kandy, appreciate your remarks towards staff and management and we really look forward to welcome you back at Ozo kandy in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
we loved Ozo Kandy though their rooms are not big enough for a family of four so we got two connecting rooms which worked brilliantly for us. the food was great, the roof top bar with some hammocks was a treat. our rooms had absolutely no view though. i would surely stay there again if i had to go back to Kandy.
I used this hotel on the last 3 days of my adventure in Sri Lanka to unwind, relax as well as a place to be able to see the beautiful sights of Kandy. It’s located in an ideal situation overlooking the lake and within walking distance of the hustle bustle that is Kandy centre. My room was fantastic either all the luxuries and comfort you’d expect, it also overlooked the lake as did the roof top bar and pool. The staff were polite and very helpful. A great hotel and highly recommended.
Dear Chris, Thank you very much for your highly positive review we are delighted that your stay was pleasant and comfortable, while we greatly appreciate your recommendation ,really look forward to have you back in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo kandy
Lovely property, but...”
We were on our Honeymoon in Sri Lanka and Kandy was our 2nd stop of the trip. While the Hotel itself is magnifique, but it is quite a task to locate the same and definitely needs local guidance. Reception staff was very pleasant, but it was very crowded when we reached. We had to wait a good 10 minutes before our bookings were confirmed and a further 5 minute wait for Service Staff to carry our luggage. While the room was beautiful with nice views of The Temple of the Tooth and Kandy Lake, but the lighting was very much dim and on raising a query regarding the same, I got the lighting has been done so as to aesthetically bring out the appeal of the rooms. It was quite a fiasco late in the evening as the Hotel Security System failed and almost all guests were either locked out or locked in. We were out exploring Kandy and were literally drenched due to heavy showers when we were back and coming back to find this conundrum was really a big disappointment.
Superbly clean and conveniently located hotel”
Ozo is a brand to be recognised! The kandy hotel is lovely. It is conveniently located in the centre of the city and has so many eateries and shops within 5-10mins drive away. The rooms are spacious, modern and very comfortable. The bathroom is kept clean and tidy. From our experience, most of the staff were accommodating and served with a smile so you feel very welcomed here. Only thing or two to improve would be to have valet parking and increase the number of car park lots.
A great choice for Kandy!”
I really enjoyed our short stay at OZO Kandy. It's very clean, with new facilities and nice decor. The location was idyllic overlooking the lake, and the main tourist attractions are close by. Thanks for a great stay, OZO!
Dear Jordan Thank you very much for your review, extremely happy to see your stay was rewarding and memorable at Ozo kandy, we really look forward to have you back in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo kandy
The staff at OZO were always friendly and accommodating. They did everything in their power to ensure I had a perfect stay in Kandy. The location by the Kandy lake made it easy to get to work or walk in to the central city.
Dear Murray, Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience, we are extremely happy that your stay was comfortable and enjoyable at Ozo Kandy, look forward to seeing you in near future. Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
We booked lake view rooms. The hotel is on a hill, offering a fabulous view from the balcony! We could see the Kandy Lake and the Temple of The Tooth across the lake. 15-20min walking distance to the sacred temple. We had delicious breakfast in the spacious and sunny restaurant. The rooftop bar is also worth visiting. New, clean, and spacious room. Everything about the hotel is so great.
Newest hotel in Kandy”
It is the newest hotel in Kandy, just 1.5 year old. Everything is new and well maintained. You can see the Kandy lake and mountain from the hotel. The view is fabulous. Our room rate didn't include the breakfast but we decide to have the breakfast in the hotel. It is just another 10dollar but the choice is many and the taste is good.
Great location, excellent rooms and amentities ”
Located just a stone throw from Kandy lake. However do note that from the main road to the hotel is sloped roads. Rooms were clean and comfortable, view of Kandy lake from the balcony. Roof top pool was small but nice. Buffet Breakfast was excellent! Must try their hoppers and curries!
Dear Ying Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Ozo kandy, great to see that you have enjoyed the stay greatly appreciate your recommendation on food and beverage offerings,really look forward to seeing you in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
A good night’s sleep ”
We arrived here after a 15 hour flight and 4 hour bus journey. The hotel itself is nestled on Kandy Lake away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Although it is quite a far walk away from any food and the main road it is situated on is packed with traffic. It’s very modern (although this means that it doesn’t really feel like you are in Sri Lanka) but the rooms and facilities are very good including a rooftop pool. All staff were extremely attentive and organised takeaway breakfasts for our day trip to Sigiriya and Dambulla. Overall a good stay and an extremely comfortable bed. Would recommend if you need to catch a solid night’s sleep.
Dear Alan, Thank you very much for your wonderful review,trust you have enjoyed the visit to Ozo Kandy, while appreciating your recommendation we really look forward to have you back in near future Regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo kandy
I just booked this hotel immediately after I got off from the train from Colombo..kidda surprised though..the hotel is situated on the hill just infront of the Kandy lake so I can look at the view of the lake with the temple of the Buddha tooth relic..staff is really helpful..the swimming pool is a bit small so it always packed with people..but I really enjoy my stay though..
Dear Isra, Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Ozo kandy, we are delighted that your stay was pleasant and rewarding,really look forward to have you back in near future regards Monty Ariyaratne Manager Ozo Kandy
