The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
River Grove, set on a hillock in tropical gardens, is a simple Kandy homestay experience that provides an insight into Sri Lankan living and traditional cuisine. Owners Raja and Shirani are very hospitable and will ensure guests have a relaxing holiday. Shirani is an excellent cook and is happy to share her recipes with guests. Go bird watching along the Mahaweli River; visit Kandy’s ancient cultural sites or just relax in the garden with a cup of Ceylon tea. River Grove can accommodate four guests.
There are two double rooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other with the bathroom located just across the hallway. Both bedrooms open out to a veranda and small back garden. Rooms have overhead fans and are comfortably-furnished with a double bed, dresser and writing desk. Bathrooms have h/w shower, wash basin and w/c.
Guests share the family living and dining rooms. If more privacy is preferred, you can choose to dine on the veranda. Sumptuous Sri Lankan and western cuisine is served here prepared by Shirani herself using fresh vegetables, spices and homemade condiments. There is cable TV, telephone and Wi-Fi in the office room that guests are welcome to use.
River Grove is a welcoming homestay just short stroll from the Mahaweli River, about a 15 minute drive from Kandy town. The journey to Kandy from Colombo’s international airport will take about 3.5 hours.
