Once in a while a person comes across a place while on vacation that just screams ' I've finally found the place '. Yes, we found our holiday home, aptly named the Kandyan view Holiday Bungalow. Situated just 15-20 minutes from the heart of Kandy city, the bungalow offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountains, as well as a bird's eye view of the city of Kandy.
This jewel of a place is probably one of the best kept secrets in Kandy, as apparently there's very little advertising for this holiday bungalow, and I stumbled upon this by accident via TripAdvisor, Agoda and bookings.com. The place is usually booked full.
The Staff made you feel like you were at home, and every small detail like the afternoon tea served at our favorite table, morning tea prepared just the way we liked, How dark the toast were to be for the kids, how we liked our eggs done.. were all taken care of.
The Staff made the difference! The bungalow is staffed by a group of genuinely caring people. Dilip the Manager, Took care of every small detail, from arranging transportation to making sure the meals were on time. The meals were prepared by Thusitha, who had come from the Pinnalanda Restaurant in Rambukkana, and his food preparations covered a wide gamut. From freshly made string hoppers in the Morning, Rice & Curry for adults, Club Sandwiches for the Kids for lunch, Mixed Grill, Grilled fish for dinner, were all covered with years of expertise, and tasted really delicious, well in par with any restaurant worldwide. Migara, the butler/waiter/room Steward was attentive and took care of all the other details. He kept the place spotlessly clean, and the meals were served with a smile. Lal, our chauffeur was always ready to take us places, gave valuable advice on places to visit, and where to dine while we were out exploring.
We've decided to make this place our home away from home when we visit the city of Kandy.
