Very hard to put a stay at Helga's into words. The whole place is like a living piece of art with wonderful surprises around every corner. From the decor to the setting to the music there is something enchanting about this place that actually hits you with a real emotional impact. And that's even before you meet Helga herself. She is a wonderful host in every sense- welcoming, fascinating and above all kind. It was a true pleasure to meet her. The staff are also terrific- warm but unobtrusive. The food was also wonderful.
Kandy itself is a beautiful town and only a couple of minutes in a tuk tuk so this is the perfect place to stay. Even if you weren't planning on visiting Kandy I would recommend the trip just to stay at Helgas.
