The Experience

The boutique hotel is elegantly appointed with 15 residential areas which are artworks of fine silk, crisp cotton, wood and glass. The décor of each room is infused with the theme of the Kandy Perahera. The deluxe rooms take in vibrant Kandyan colours whilst the superior rooms revel in crystal-white paint, brilliant décor and private balconies that capture swathes of mountains. The suites bask in an aesthetic state of mind amidst elegant décor, wooden furnishings and a Jacuzzi. The penthouse is a hotchpotch of the traditional and the modern; airy and sumptuous to make you feel like Kandyan royalty.

Around and About

Enveloped in endless stripes of greenery, the quiet hamlet of Hantana is an Eden for dreamers and nature enthusiasts. Mountain air and hills, streams, birds; one could easily spend a whole day wandering the surroundings without running out of things to see. The Hantana Rainforest with lush plant life and fantastic birds is nestled a stroll away from the hotel. The Ceylon Tea Museum of Hantana is the best place in the Island to go behind the history of Ceylon tea.

Unraveling amidst the tall, pensive mountains, 2-KM from the hotel is the city of Kandy. The Temple of Tooth which houses the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha bejewels the city. In the month of August, the Kandy Perahera parades the city, begemming it with a myriad of colours, sounds and lights. Lavishly-dressed elephants, fireball dances and whip crackers are a few highlights of this procession that transforms the city into a magical wonderland. A lazy boat ride on the serene waters of the Kandy Lake or an unhurried stroll around it would be an evocative memory to take back with you.

On a scenic landscape in Peradeniya, 9-KM from Hantana, the Royal Botanical Gardens unfurls its fantastic floral show. 4000 species of plants including orchids and other flowers, herbs, spices and palm trees bespeckle the gardens.

As you soak in the gorgeous luxury of the Jacuzzi at your suite, the hills roll into a dream-like photograph to please your eyes. Elegant, subtle notes of Kandyan themes transport you back to the time when Kandy was a hill capital.
