Elegant and spacious Superior Rooms can be found in three different wings of the hotel, offering views of either the Mahaveli River or the beautifully landscaped gardens. In the newest wings of the hotel, Deluxe Rooms boast stunning views of the gardens or the river from private balconies, while for those looking for a truly royal experience, enjoy plenty of living space and prime views of the Mahaweli River from a Suite.



With two restaurants and a lounge bar, every palate is well catered to and every taste bud is treated to new and exciting flavours. As its name suggests, Panorama, the main restaurant, offers more than just a great meal - guests also get a generous helping of breathtaking views of the Mahaweli River and surrounding mountain range. Close to the riverbank, by the pool, Café C is an a la carte restaurant serving a wide range of contemporary fusion cuisine in a quiet, cosy and romantic ambience.

Fancy a Champagne breakfast on the terrace overlooking the river? A private dinner for two on a helipad? High tea on a boat? Dining in the woods? The destination dining team can make these dreams, and more, a reality.



Overlooking the mighty Mahaweli River, the swimming pool is perfect for a relaxing dip after a busy day of adventures. Soak in the natural surroundings and breathtaking vistas. There are plenty of fun activities to keep guests occupied during their stay. Play a round of badminton or table tennis or join a game or darts or chess.

In addition to indoor sports, the pool and gym, there are plenty of quiet places all over the sprawling resort. Catch up on reading under a shady tree, by the river or on the terrace or enjoy one of the many excursions on offer and discover Kandy's rich history.


Getting There

Arrival Airport

Colombo International Airport


Approximately 3 and a half hours from Colombo International Airport


The main south west monsoon brings rain to the Hill Country from April to September, making December to March the best time to visit. Sri Lanka's position close to the equator means that temperatures remain fairly constant throughout the year, although nights in the hills can be quite chilly.
