Beautiful location in the hills above the city. The pool is lovely as has tortoises all around the beautiful gardens. Rooms are comfortable. Meals can be served by the pool or with the secluded mountain view - which we recommend. All in all an amazing hotel!

I love the location, away from the noise of Kandy. The pool is small but it is enough to relax. The "Lemongrass" room is huge, with a very large bathroom and a balcony. Make sure to dine at the hotel, as the chef cooks some great dishes.

We stayed in the tent which was huge.! Very clean and spacious with lovely bathroom. Complimentary water and snacks in the tent fridge were a nice touch. Nihal the host was extremely helpful. Arranged tuk tuks so we could see all the local attractions and helped us sort our train tickets for our onward journey. Wish we had started another night !

The staff, food, views and location were great. The only downside is that The Tent needs some love. Lots of mildew and marks around the tent and the rest of hotel could do with some tidying up regarding the decor. Part form that we had a great stay and the staff were so friendly and courteous!!

Pleasant Experience after a long day of travelling”
Stayed in their suite and was really lucky to be able to book a room! Was really impressed by their hospitality. They are very genuine and not out to trick your money esp when they share with you recommendation/ places of interest in Kandy. Breakfast was also good, and really love the egg hopper. Would love to have more!

Loved the tent it was amazing. Staff were great, however manager was real dodgey when it came to transport - do not order through the hotel tried to charge us insane prices. Rest of the staff were great, very friendly and awesome breakfast.

Very nice hotel”
We stayed in the Royal suit in the garden. The room was very nice, and the gardens and pool area are lovely to relax in. The staff are all very well trained and friendly. The food we ate was excellent and the chief even cooked us a meal not from the menu by request. The Sri Lankan breakfast was superb. It's close enough to kandy so that you don't have to spend a long time travelling, but just enough outside the town to be quiet and peaceful and has reasonably nice views.I highly recommend this hotel for kandy.

The hotel is beautiful. Staff made us feel very comfortable and went out of the way to make sure we had a pleasent stay. Breakfast was really good and Srilankan dinner was amazing. Only negative feedback would be the price, which was quite high compared to other hotels we stayed in during our visit.

The staff!!!”
The staff here make this hotel stand out from the crowd. As two single female travellers, we were made to feel safe and comfortable...like we were arriving home...by every single staff member. One came and showed us to the resident tortoise family and fruit trees. Another called our previous hotel to chase down a forgotten phone charger. They helped set up a nice table for us to enjoy our bottle of champagne on arrival and gave us the use of a local cell phone to take around with us. The manager even called us one night (during perahera festival) to check we were safe and ok to get home. The food was superb. Breakfast and dinner should not be missed! The location was good and bad. We loved the peaceful serenity away from the hustle and bustle. However, you need to plan and organise your day so you're not going back and forth. Not at all an issue for us. The one downfall was their lovely cars not being in operation. Maybe next time. I highly recommend The Elephant Stables!

The hotel is cosy & stunning nestled in the hills near Kandy hence very private & quiet, away from the chaos of the town. Fantastic green views of Kandy town below & statue of giant Buddha visible in the far distance. What makes it extra special are the wonderful staff, especially Nalaka, Nihal & Tyronne. Ever so friendly & accommodating, they really made our stay a memorable one. Wished we could have stayed more nights than one!
