Very welcoming and helpful staff. Fancy decoration of interiors. Nice little garden around. The hotel is close to the road, but it's very peaceful and quiet. Parking is available. Very close to the lake.

I had the opportunity to take part in a seven day yoga retreat at the Yoga centre belonging to Shangri La. It was an unique experience .The yoga teachers were very attentive. Ideal environment for yoga.

We stayed at Shangri-La Kandyan House for three days but had to leave to get our flight. This guest house is full of charm, the rooms are very clean and cosy. Remember to have your breakfast in the terrace overlooking the green garden.

There was no air conditioning in our room, just a ceiling fan. What I would really like to see, and would be prepared to... More

We were welcomed so warmly by Nandana and his wife, who speak perfect English and French. Rooms were clean, spacious and cosy. Nandana arranged us a morning yoga class and we ended the day with a relaxing Ayurvedic massage. Perfect day/stay!

Shangri-la is the best place to stay in Kandy. Hosts Kush en Nananda are beyond friendly. Cosy room, great shower, good breakfast. They also organize yoga classes. We can highly recommend this place. Kind regards, Lies and Arne

We stayed for 2 nights in the Eco lodges after recommendations from a French couple we met in Polonurwara. We had a fabulous time, the lodges are simple but clean and comfortable. The locations is brilliant away from the craziness of kandy, the lodges are set in the forest creating a really relaxing environment. Still not too far away from... More
