The Elephant Stables, Kandy

Excellent - ££££


A charming hotel with real personality, the colourful Elephant Stables is one of the best places to stay in Kandy.

This is a luxury boutique hotel with bags of character, and it’s family-friendly too. It was originally a Colonial-era bungalow, but has been lovingly converted into a beautiful, tranquil sanctuary.

You’ll love the lustrous hardwood floors, warm tones and laid-back luxury of this Sri Lankan gem. That’s if you can ever drag yourself away from the spectacular infinity swimming pool, the perfect spot for a cool dip or a lazy afternoon of sunbathing.

Ready to explore Kandy? All the best attractions of this fascinating city are just a stone’s throw away from the Elephant Stables. You’ll only be a tuk tuk ride away from Kandy Lake, the city’s famous clock tower or the must-visit Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.


You’ll have every modern luxury you could wish for at the Elephant Stables. These cosy, elegantly decorated rooms come with comfortable seating areas, flat-screen TVs, complementary toiletries and fluffy bathrobes.

While you’ll love style of the rooms, complete with colourful tropical print accents, wait until you see the amazing bathrooms. Choose the right room and you’ll get a spacious bathroom with wood deck and a huge freestanding bath.

The Elephant Stables has a 24-hour front desk, library and even the option to book a relaxing traditional massage in your room. There’s also a fabulous restaurant, The Green Room, which serves delicious Sri Lankan, Thai and Continental dishes. But if you can’t drag yourself out of your supremely comfortable bed, you can just order room service instead.
