Wander, barefoot and clad in a sarong, around the Devales Shrines and the inner recesses of the fabulous Temple of the Tooth. Stand by the shoulder of an impassive Buddha high on a hillside overlooking Kandy. Gaze in wonder at the Hindu temple on Peradeniya Road. Lose yourself in the immensity of the Botanical Gardens. Amidst the bustle, hustle, sarong sellers and cake shops of Kandy you will find moments of absolute stillness.
But put The Kandy House on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka and you will discover another kind of sensation. You’ll be able to relax in an ancestral manor house with arched verandas, antique furnishings and modern refinements. Not to mention food that skilfully includes traditional ten-dish curries and international fusion dishes.
