One of the best hotels we stayed with was perhaps in Randholee Luxury Resorts. Our travel agent booked this for our 3 days getaway in Sri Lanka on October 2015. We were warmly greeted with a towel and refreshing juice. Our check-in was quick and bags immediately taken to our room. Everything was smooth, from the check in up to saying goodbye to this charming botuique hotel in Kandy.
This 4 star hotel is located on top of one of the many hillsides surrounding Kandy so expect a bit of inconvenient ride up. It’s a little away from the Kandy city center. But we loved how the location made it a secluded get away with a beautiful view and infinity pool overlooking the city.
Our mountain view room was on the second floor. We are in awe when we finally entered our room after that long ride. Heart-shaped roses are spread on the huge bed. Everything looks tidy and clean. The furnitures are made of wood and the view from our room balcony was simply breathtaking. We loved the notice on the door “please keep shut” monkeys outside.
The breakfast buffet was amazing and the manager himself personally talked with every guest to make sure they get the best from the hotel. We tried their dinner too and it was pleasant with the usual standard fare. The dining experience standout since an acoustic band was playing.
Being a boutique hotel also meant it was not crowded. The only facility we saw was the pool which we haven’t used anyway. It’s cold during the time of our visit. But the stunning view from the pool overlooking the city was absolutely unforgettable and the mysterious fog every morning was breathtaking!
Staff and Service
The staff was very friendly upon arrival until we leave the place. The best customer care we experienced was probably here. Everyone warmly greeted us and the other guests. From the reception, restaurant and housekeeping, all are attentive and prompt.
The hotel was booked by our travel agent located in Dubai. But to check for prices, you can visit in the hotel’s official website.
Generally, we found this place to be a great escape away from the city. If you don’t fancy queen’s hotel in the center and you can endure the hilly ride, this is an absolute relaxing alternative. It was assuredly a delightful hotel for you to book your stay with.
