It was a good place to spend Family vacation. Food was great and the hotel staff was friendly and always willing to assist you.
Pros : Food , Place , cleanliness
Con : It bit hard to find the hotel from Kandy without using the google Maps

Tip : If you are visting there make sure you search National Institute of Fundamental Studies from google maps from Kandy.Then after coming to there search for the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms which are situated towards the hills are great

We went to Skyloft yesterday and spend a day there. The room was great including a very well-equipped bathroom. Very new and clean.

But the food at the buffet in the night was terrible. lack of variety and ill tasted vegetable (Butter available was inedible probably a cheap stuff or expired? ) and the oil used to roast vegetable awful. Only a chicken kidney curry for the dinner? terrible.

Price of the food items are quite expensive and not worth for money if you order outside buffet (It was what i felt as a local guest). 2 glasses of fruit juice cost us 1750/= . Do you think that is worth ?.

Location of the hotel was nice and road to the hotel is good as well (from Hanthana road ).

I recommend getting a b/b basis rooms for any local guest.

We stayed at Skyloft Kandy for one night (we wanted to stay longer but they were fully booked!). We were greeted after a very long journey from London with a refreshing cool towel and a very delicious hot chocolate. Our room was immaculate with a very lovely bathroom and balcony over looking the hills of Kandy. We decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant as we were very tired and the hotel is a bit far out from the main Kandy centre. We had a lovely set menu - it wasn't the best food we had but worth a try. The service at dinner was amazing - the staff are very attentive and it was great chatting with them.

We had the best nights sleep we had both had in a very long time!!

We had purchased the room with breakfast included (breakfast is between 7-10am). We opted for the 'American set breakfast' which was fresh fruit, a bread / sweet cake basket and then eggs however you like, sausages, bacon and potato wedges - it was delicious.

We would definitely recommend staying here - reasonable prices and great service.

I stayed a night here. The hotel staff was very friendly and you can just discuss any matter with them and settle it down. We had a little party on rooftop, with one of the best views ever. The room was 5 star-quality and worth the money. Little too much taxes though. I didn't had any meal, so no reviews about food. Recommend for couples and family. A good, beautiful, calm place. Stay a night or two..!

Room Tip: Higher floors are much better

We went the Skyloft for a birthday celebration. We went by the train to Kandy. We took a cab from Kandy and went to the hotel. It was a perfect location. A nice view. They did welcome us nicely by giving us hot chocolate as welcome drink. Nice view and a nice staff. Quality rooms. We booked for half board. Thanks Duminda for all your support. Thanks a lot Skyloft.
