Mahaweli Reach Hotel

Mahaweli Reach Hotel 5 Star

from £152 per room night

 
 

Location

Its grand, colonial-style exterior rising up from the banks of the Mahaweli, Sri Lanka’s longest river, this palatial hotel stands amid lush tropical gardens. Kandy is the country’s second-largest city but was once an ancient kingdom, and is one of the most fascinating areas you can visit. Located 465m above sea level and 120km from the capital, Colombo, the city is a treasure trove of elegant architecture, sacred temples and traditions from art and music to food.

Rooms

Recently renovated, the 112 rooms each have their own private balcony, so you can soak up the fresh air and views of the gardens or river. This idyllic setting is matched perfectly by the tasteful decor, which has been influenced by both colonial and Kandyan interiors. Natural woods, fine fabrics and an abundance of natural light give them a homely, spacious feel. Suites offer breathtaking views of the river and mountains, and are decked out in luxurious furnishings.

Activities

In the surrounding area, you will surely want to see the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, which dates back to the 16th century, where daily rituals venerate a relic with flute and trumpet playing. The Royal Botanical gardens are also a lush refuge, where you can happily nose around the orchids, palms and colourful flowerbeds. Back home, the spa specialises in ayurvedic treatments, and you’ll also find a gym, tennis court and full-size snooker tables. Motor boats to spot kingfishers and exotic species depart from right outside.

Dining

Grab a spot on the terrace overlooking the river and enjoy the dazzling array of options at the hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant. Specialities from around the globe include the likes of Arabic, Mongolian, European, Chinese and Sri Lankan cuisine. Children’s menus are available too, and the hotel has an incredible array of homemade cakes and desserts on offer. These are just as tempting as the theme nights, which include barbecues of Sri Lankan and Kandyan fare.
