Return to nature with Kandy Guest House…
Kandy Guest House is located on the banks of a beautiful river, surrounded by lush vegetation and coconut trees. Recline on your private balcony, sipping tea and listening to the sounds of birdsong, crickets and croaking frogs. Your host, George, will offer you not only accommodation, but will welcome you into his family, provide you with his wife’s top-notch cooking, and give you insights and tips into the surrounding area.
Kandy Guest House may only be a few kilometers away from the city, but it provides a peaceful haven away from any bustle, traffic fumes and noise. The beautiful Peradeniya botanical gardens for which Kandy is famed are only a ten minute tuk-tuk drive away, Peradeniya railway station (on the main Colombo-Kandy and Badulla-Colombo lines) is a five minutes drive, and Kandy city itself is a fifteen minute drive. What is more, George will pick up all guests free of charge from Perideniya station, and can arrange pick-ups from anywhere else in the country. He can also arrange transportation elsewhere, whether it is to Pinnawela or further afield. Kandy Guesthouse can easily be used as a base to travel to the tea country, the temples of the North, or to Colombo and the airport.
Our guests frequently rave about Ann’s (George’s wife) home-cooking. Prepare to feast on all manner of traditional Sri Lankan food, from spicy fish and chicken curries, sambol and hoppers for dinner, to fresh papaya, kiribath, Ceylon tea and toast for breakfast.
