An old colonial house converted into a guest house in an absolutely beautiful setting. It is set in a peaceful part of Kandy very close to the station and other attractions. Extremely friendly hosts make your stay pleasant and peaceful. The price is very good for such a beautiful location and level of comfort. At night you can see bats the size of eagles and I even was fortunate enough to see wild boars roaming around the garden. The manager provides travel advice and helps to order tuk tuks at reasonable prices. I did the booking through Red Dot Tours and had excellent service from them and the manager of the cottage.
Absolutely amazing place. Ulpotha is an experience that can never really be described. In summary, if a five-star beach resort with evening gin and tonics and home-from-home luxuries is your preferred destination, or if you like extreme hardship and want to eat bugs for breakfast, then Ulpotha isn’t for you and you wouldn’t fit in anyway. But if you genuinely want to get away from it all, in a warm, engaging and totally relaxing environment, but with a more minimalist lifestyle, where you can challenge your perception of just how important a hairdryer is, then you will have the most amazing time.
Kandy Cottage is a charming and cosy place of retreat for writers and artists, and also welcomes regular holiday makers.
It has the best of both worlds: it nestles in a little hollow adjoining the Udawatte-Kelle forest sanctuary, but is only ten minutes' walk from the historic city of Kandy - the cultural capital of Sri Lanka.
The Cottage is wired throughout with broad band internet access; and the facilities range from laundry to laser printing. What's more, the pricing is unbelievably low compared to similar places in Sri Lanka.
