Kandy House joins Sri Lanka Collection

Kandy House joins Sri Lanka Collection

The Sri Lanka Collection has added The Kandy House to its portfolio.

This existing nine-room boutique hotel with swimming pool located on the outskirts of Kandy is one of Sri Lanka’s most alluring boutique properties.

The addition of The Kandy House – sister hotel to the beach hotel/villa The Last House near Tangalle – into The Sri Lanka Collection’s fold means the number of properties represented by The Sri Lanka Collection is now ten.

The Kandy House and The Last House are owned and operated by Manor House Concepts, and share similar characteristics of being small, intimate and highly atmospheric hotels with high standards of service, comfort and food set amidst sensitively converted historic buildings.

Oozing style and personality, and promising fabulous food and exceptional service, this enchanting hotel in Kandy’s tranquil rural outskirts, with jungle pool and exotic gardens, is an unforgettable place to stay.


“Having just passed its tenth anniversary, The Kandy House has established itself as the leading boutique hotel close to Kandy.

“Along with her sister property The Last House, I am delighted to again partner with The Sri Lanka Collection as visitor momentum to the country accelerates further and Kandy remains a key destination,” commented Tim Jacobson, owner of Manor House Concepts.

The Kandy House is the former home of a Sri Lankan aristocrat who committed an act of ‘decadent defiance’ by building himself a palatial villa using roof tiles, which at the time were decreed only for royal residences.

Renovated into a hotel in 2005, this stunning house is truly unique; chic interiors and one-of-a-kind antiques perfectly complement the elegant arches, pillared verandas, hardwood floors and central courtyard.

Rooms feature four-poster beds, garden views and contemporary bathrooms yet are blissfully devoid of TVs and phones.
