Kings Pavilion is a luxury boutique hotel conveniently located less than a mile from Kandy’s city centre. This property is a real gem set in a particularly picturesque area surrounded by towering mountains covered in lush, unspoiled greenery. The hotel has a calm, relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere within easy reach of Kandy’s many attractions.
There are three levels of accommodation: Standard Rooms, Suites and Junior Suites. All rooms have a chic, contemporary feel and offer generous amounts of space. Large windows allow plenty of natural light and afford scenic views of the beautiful surrounding landscapes. Ground floor rooms have their own private garden, while those up on the first floor have a balcony. Amenities available in most of the rooms include complimentary fresh fruit, tea and coffee making facilities, an LED TV with satellite channels and a minibar. All rooms come with air conditioning and are immaculately presented.
The hotel has a good number of facilities for guests to make use of when not out exploring Kandy. There’s a stunning pool perched at the edge of a hillside, offering spectacular views. There’s also a spa and sauna, with a broad range of treatments on offer. The restaurant, which is open for three meals a day, serves traditional Sri Lankan delicacies, as well as a number of popular international dishes.
Guests are well placed for exploring the intriguing city of Kandy. Centrally located in the mountainous centre of Sri Lanka, it’s widely regarded as the country’s cultural capital; it’s also the second largest city in the country. One of the stand-out attractions is the Temple of the Tooth, an elaborate Buddhist temple considered to be one of the holiest sites in the whole country. There’s also the National Museum, which has an array of exhibits on the country’s rich history and culture, the Kandy Centre Mall with its variety of shopping opportunities, and Kandy Lake which lies at the heart of the city and is the ideal spot for a leisurely stroll.
Children of all ages are welcome to stay at the hotel, though it does have a somewhat adult feel. Parents are reminded that children should remain under adult supervision at all times.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
