Kandyan View Holiday Bungalow

Reviewed 22 January 2013

Stayed one night and couldn't be more pleased about the service and overall great experience. Along with the spectacular views of the city of Kandy, the great service and cleanliness of the place gave us much to reminisce about on leaving the place. The staff was quiet, yet friendly and helpful. The place wasn't hard to find at all, as there were clear directions at every few hundred meters.

Room Tip: Ask for the deluxe rooms on the 3rd floor if available. The view is amazing, and those rooms happen...

Stayed two nights and couldn't be happier. Clean modern facilities with stunning views of Kandy and very nice and helpful staff. The food is also quite good. The bungalow has two cars on staff and you can hire them for the day for much cheaper than taxis in town. The man at the front desk can arrange a one day package for you that includes the botanical gardens, big buddha on the hill, a tea factory, lunch stop, temple of the tooth, and cultural show. Its worth it. The package is perfect for a nice day in Kandy. We had a wonderful time and never felt rushed. And the price can't be beat. Amazing value for money.

This resort is located at the top of a hill, which is one of the highest points of Kandy. The location can be difficult to get to with its steep roads, but offers a breathtaking view of the city. The staff are very friendly and are quick to offer any help. They ask you what you want for dinner and custom make the food. The place is clean and quiet, away from the din of the city.

Room Tip: Try to get the suite on the top floor with the balcony. The view of the city is breathtaking from th...

The hotel per se was pretty nice- rooms were decent, wifi was good, breakfast was basic but good. no problem with anything except the location. The hotel is very far from the city- if you do not have a driver, then no point staying here. The road to the hotel is also very narrow and not in a good condition. Thankfully we had a driver for which the hotel provides free accommodation and meals.
I had a nice stay there.

We stayed for one night at the hotel and it was a lovely expereince. The manager and the staff were very helpful. I was travelling with my one year old infant and the staff was ever so helpful in organizing and allowing kitchen access for her meals.
The food served was fresh and tasty.
The suite was clean and staff was helpful to fix any small issues.

Five of us stayed at the Kandyan View for the Perahera this year. It's quite hard to find but there ARE signs all the way if you are really looking out for them. Bit of a struggle for the van getting up some of the hills but made it in the end. The view is incredible with a nice garden you can sit out in and enjoy a drink. We had booked two rooms and what we got was really an apartment with two en-suite bedrooms and a large living area with a panoramic bay window overlooking Kandy and the hills. Kids loved it as it was the only place we stayed at for the whole trip that had a TV, so they got to watch some of the Olympics. As others have mentioned, there's not a lot to do in the immediate vicinity but it doesn't take too long to get into Kandy. The hot pancakes in the morning were really good if you like a chilli kick.
