Kings Pavilion

Discover Kings Pavilion

Close to the cultural city of Kandy, Kings Pavilion is a serene boutique hotel surrounded by misty mountains and verdant forestlands. Styled after the bygone era of Sri Lankan grandeur, the hotel is cleverly hidden from the hustle and bustle of Sri Lanka’s majestic hilltop city. It’s an oasis of calm with awe-inspiring views from the infinity pool and the 9 elegant rooms and suites. With heritage sites only minutes away, it is the perfect retreat from which to explore the hill country.

The hotel has contemporary styling combined with Kandyan culture and arts. There are only 9 rooms and suites, all beautifully appointed and very spacious. The charming restaurant serves Sri Lankan cuisine and international dishes. The natural setting at Kings Pavilion gives you access to bird watching as well as walking and cycling tours through the atmospheric landscape. From the hotel you can also do yoga and meditation classes, and there are painting and art facilities, a relaxing spa, and an infinity swimming pool. Being so close to Kandy means that you can easily reach the ancient temples, bustling markets and stunning beauty spots like the Udawatta Kele Forest Reserve.
