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.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
