Sri Lanka is home to a dazzling array of luxury hotels, from colonial-era plantation houses and country homes to tented camps and beachside properties.
The Kandy House, Kandy
Sri Lanka’s last king lived in this elegant residence turned heritage hotel. Guests here enjoy a royal experience too, as the Kandy House is amongst the best boutique hotels on the island.
Wallawwa Hotel, Colombo
A country house hotel in tropical garden splendour, the Wallawwa, mere minutes from the airport in Colombo, is a hidden Sri Lankan gem.
Ceylon Tea Trails, Hatton
Mountains, velvet tea plantations, mirror still lakes… this is the highland high life in Sri Lanka and the all-round view at the Ceylon Tea Trails, a small, exclusive and ultra-lux hideaway hotel at the heart of it all.
Vil Uyana, Sigiriya
The choices at Vil Uyana, one of the Leading Small Hotels of the World, are simple. Choose from a room within a tropical rainforest, or overlooking lush marshes or a shimmering lake.
