We knew Helga's Folly from a book about Sri Lanka and we were very curious to see this special hotel. During our trip we stopped in Kandy and had the possibility to have lunch in Helga's Folly.
It was great to discover this place, totally different than we are used to see here in Sri Lanka. You can watch for hours the interior with such a melting pot of different items. Places like Helga's Folly you normally find in SOHO - New York or in Amsterdam... but with the Sri Lankan art and atmosphere you feel the vibrations of this nice country.
About the food .... our lunch was delicious and the presentation very original. The staff was so kind and even gave us a visit of the building, rooms and garden with swimming pool and a nice view of Kandy. If you want to stay outside the busy city of Kandy in a totally different place .... go for the Helga's Folly experience !
