The Kandy House

Separated from the bustle of Sri Lanka’s second largest city by four miles of winding road that undulates through a lush rural landscape, the Kandy House is a gracious surprise of understated hill Country splendor. Wrought iron gates stand guard at the top of a long, tear-shaped lawn leading to the front verandah- entrance to a magical place.

Built in 1804 by the local chief Ratwatte Adigar, The Kandy House has been renovated sensitively to blend traditional Kandyan architecture with Dutch colonial furniture, luxurious Sri Lankan fabrics, relaxed sofas and ottomans, beautifully appointed bathrooms and elegant touches of color.
