The Kandy House

Steeped in rich history and set in very tranquil landscaped gardens, the Kandy House is an ancestral mansion that was once the residence of the Chief Minister of the last Sri Lankan King before the British Colonial rule. Today, the Kandy House is a much sought after boutique hotel that offers stylish accommodation which still exudes a colonial ambience.

This ancestral property was renovated by leading architect Channa Daswatte, who also happens to be the protégé of one of Sri Lanka's most renowned architects- Geoffery Bawa. The refurbishment was an architectural triumph as it managed to retain the colonial air with its whitewashed interiors, rich wooden floors, period furniture and landscaped gardens.
Typical of old colonial homes, the main house is built over two storeys with a central courtyard which allows lots of sunshine and fresh air. A grand jack wood stair case and wooden flooring adds character to this mansion. There are 9 rooms on offer including a family suite which are furnished with Dutch antique furniture, four poster beds and stately Victorian bathrooms.
The landscaped gardens are arranged on three levels leading to a beautiful infinity pool.
