Sri Lanka, Kandy and Around
Info : Mahaweli Reach
The Mahaweli Reach is the pick of the larger hotels in central Kandy and one of the few to have five star status. The real selling point is the location within easy walking distance of Kandy's main attractions and commanding superb views across the Mahaweli River.
The Mahaweli Reach has 114 rooms and suites which overlook the river or tropical garden, all designed and furnished in a modern international style. The hotel has a good restaurant and cookery courses can also be arranged with the resident master chef. The excellent outdoor swimming pool is beautifully lit at night. Other facilities include a private tennis court and gym. Ayurvedic massages and treatments can be arranged.
The Mahaweli Reach's location is a bonus if you are time deficient or prefer to stay in the centre of town and the rates are significantly lower than Kandys several premium boutique hotels.
Kandy itself is a traditional stop-over on route from the cultural triangle area to the hill country. Home of the Temple of The Tooth and generally regarded as the bastion of Sinhalese culture, Kandy is a vibrant and unique Aisan city. While the touts are numerous and occasionally annoying, the beauty and serenity of the Botanical Gardens at Peradeniya or the rain forest within a city at Udawattekele more than compensate.

It was a fantastic holiday. Sri Lanka, Experience travel and the wonderful Harriet have all been praised to the skies many times over! We had a massive party when we got back and about 150 people wanted to know how we found the place!! The answer was that I had spoken to nearly a dozen agents before finally speaking to someone who asked ME lots of questions, ie properly interested in what we would like rather than trying to quickly field a product. Knowledgable, patient, helpful and 'real'!
