Located on the top of a hill so you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset on each side - amazing views! Spacious rooms and the staff are very friendly, kind and serviceminded. Only 6 rooms so very cozy - great place to relax and let the mind wander while sitting in one of the balconies or at the...

Elegant Hotel was the first of seven accomodations in Sri Lanka. After a long flight and an early morning arrival in Colombo we headed straight to Kandy and continued to our hotel. We stayed for two nights using it as our base for trips to Kandy (Botanical Garden, Temple of the Sacred Tooth, Udawattakelle). I really liked every aspect of...

What an absolutely beautiful place! During the drive up what seemed to be a deserted, dusty track to the middle of nowhere, we felt quite anxious about what kind of place we had booked but what waited for us at the top was out of this world! We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from the owner and his...

Stayed for two nights. Could have stayed for a week! Elegant hotel is one of the best hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. I cannot praise the staff enough. After spending five minutes here I felt at home in a way I rarely do. They are really doing everything they can to make your stay as good...

We had a large, nice room on the first floor with a balcony, the sunset was beautiful. We liked the food: the breakfast and the dinner. The service was excellent. We told the manager about our great satisfaction. We still are a bit sad that we couldn't express our appreciation to the very friendly waiter.

Just leaving this morning after a two night stay, it was perfect. The Sri Lankan food was a highlight. Recommend the cashew curry. We had a ground floor double room it was very nice, cool and comfortable. Everything spotlessly clean. The pool is amazing after a hot bus ride. It is about a 15 minute tuktuk to kandy town approx...

So sad that we only stayed here one night. We loved to be here for much longer. Comfortable room and bed. Beautiful pool. Good breakfast and restaurant. Nice view for both sunrise and sunset. The room price was really reasonable. The only issue is about its location. It is a bit far from Kandy city main sights.

We had an exceptionally wonderful stay at the Elegant Hotel - so much so that we didn't want to leave. The Elegant's manager, Mr. Gimhani, is a born host, utterly devoted with heart and soul to making sure his guests are happy. He and his entire staff made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. They...

The title of this should say enough. Perfect rooms (very clean and hot water), brilliant views and pool location but most importantly, the friendly and humble staff. They make the stay worth it for 100%. Although we usually do not eat in our hotel, we did it this time and the food is amazing. Best place we visited in Sri...
