The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Randholee is one of Red Dot's favoured affordable options in the Kandy hills. Randholee means 'Palanquin', a favoured means of transport for royalty during the period of the Kandyan kingdom. Royalty would certainly have settled for this picturesque setting surrounded by the Heerassagala Mount Pleasant Range. The hotel is reached via a winding road and is about 15 minutes from Kandy town. Once you reach the hotel gates, a short steep ride downhill leads you to the main reception area. The hotel offers comfortable rooms with spectacular mountain views, meals prepared to your liking and a personalised service. Randholee is well suited for those seeking a quiet holiday in the hills.
Randholee has 25 ensuite bedrooms, of which 18 have mountain views and seven have garden views. Red Dot recommends the mountain view rooms which have a private balcony and look out at the scenic Heerasagala mountains. Interiors are furnished with twin or double beds with a striking headboard in the design of a palanquin, created with timber and local Kandyan art, a writing desk and a wardrobe. In-room facilities include a/c and overhead fan, satellite TV, DVD player on request, IDD, minibar and tea / coffee facilities, electronic safe and Wi-Fi. 24 hour in-room dining and room service is also available. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w showers.
The restaurant has scenic mountain views and serves Sri Lankan, Eastern and Western cuisine, prepared with fresh local produce. There is an a la carte menu as well as a buffet, and the chef is happy to prepare a more personalised meal and serve it anywhere you please, including the pool side, in the garden or in the privacy of your own balcony. Randholee also has a small gym room, business centre and games room with a pool table and indoor games such as carom and chess. There is also an infinity swimming pool surrounded by extensive terraced gardens scattered with fruit trees and flowering plants. The hotel is designed with ramps and a lift for wheelchair access. Randholee follows an eco-friendly policy of recycling waste and harvesting rain water which is used to keep the gardens green.
Randholee is nestled amongst imposing hills in the village of Heerassagala, a short distance from Kandy town centre. The journey to Kandy from Colombo's International Airport will take about 3.5 hours.
