Away from the hustle and bustle of the city…nestled among the hills of the hill capital…
Mahaweli Reach Hotel is Kandy’s first five star hotel.
Situated on the banks of the Mahaweli river amidst lush tropical gardens stands the Mahaweli Reach Hotel, Kandy which combines old world charm with modern luxuries. The flowing waters of the Mahaweli and the vistas of misty mountains set the scene of tranquility which is incomparable.
The personalized service provided at this hotel has been honed to perfection over a time span of over almost forty years which has seen the hotel grow from an owner managed four roomed guest house to a 112 roomed luxury property, which is still managed by the founding family.
The Mahaweli Reach Hotel provides an experience which is uniquely Sri Lankan and is ideally situated for exploring the attractions that central Sri Lanka has to offer. Kandy being the cradle of traditional arts and crafts and the place where the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha is situated is a must visit destination.
2011 has been designated the “Visit Sri Lanka Year” and there are several programmes organized throughout the year to showcase the diverse attractions Sri Lanka has to offer, which ranges from historical and cultural sites, wild life parks to golden beaches.
