We stayed at the hotel for a couple of days it was raining most of the time, but even with the rain it was a wonderful time with a great mountain view of the city + great buffet the road to the hotel was annoying because it was very narrow with a lot of turnes.

Hotel is situated in the hills of central Kandy overlooking the city. Great level of standards when comparing other hotels in Kandy. Staff are great and the food (breakfast and buffets) are excellent, great views from the reception, dining halls,and rooms. The spa is also excellent so is the service

Checked in around 8PM and left the hotel around 4PM. The staff arranged for transportation. Loved everything about the hotel. Enjoyed the breakfast. Only issue we had was with wifi. It is only available around the lobby area.
