Once a holiday bungalow for international cricket teams as they toured the town, Kings Pavilion offers you off-the-beaten-track luxury near Kandy, the majestic hilltop city. This traditionally styled boutique hotel will give you a taste of the luxury experienced by the ancient kings of Sri Lanka.
Sprawling across three acres of unspoilt nature, King’s Pavilion is a stunning oasis of calm with awe-inspiring views of the Hunnasgiriya and Knuckles mountain ranges that can be seen from the beautiful infinity pool and elegant rooms. The hotel employs a contemporary style combined with Kandyan arts and culture, with elaborate batik wall hangings and photographs and paining’s depicting Kandyan dancing adorning the walls of the rooms. There are just 9 delightfully luxurious rooms and suites to choose from and the decadent and airy abodes are styled after bygone eras of Sri Lankan grandeur and tucked delicately into the landscape of stunning mountains and luscious greenery.
As a resident of King’s Pavilion you will be able to immerse yourself in the serenity of nature and take part in a meditation session at an idyllic hidden shrine overlooking the verdant gardens. This relaxation retreat is unique in that it truly connects you to the surrounding nature and sends you home with a unique perspective of this luscious land, and with over 56 majestic varieties of indigenous flora and fauna found around the hotel there is certainly a great deal to see. And if the marvels found on site aren’t enough to keep you entertained then Kandy and its incredible heritage sites are only minutes away.
From the moment you step through the front gates of King’s Pavilion and start to settle into the regal surroundings until you have to make your begrudging departure, you will be blown away by natural majesty and treated like one of the Sri Lankan kings of old. Throughout your stay you will receive the highest level of service from the friendly and courteous staff who pride themselves on their attention to detail and demonstrate their passion from the moment you arrive with a traditional betel leaf welcoming ceremony.
King’s Pavilion offers only 9 exclusive suites and rooms that are located in three separate sections of the beautiful property. Every room is carefully designed to complement the scenic environment and immerse you in the vibrant personality of Sri Lankan nature.
