The shimmering Victoria Reservoir, the lush emerald fairways of the Victoria Golf and Country Resort and the vertiginous Knuckles Range set the scene for Bougainvillea Retreat, which overlooks this incredible natural amphitheatre. Kandy and the city’s many cultural attractions are less than an hour’s drive away.
This stunning Tuscan-style boutique hotel, immersed within an acre of gloriously landscaped bird-filled gardens, is home to eight comfortably appointed rooms, a breathtaking infinity freeform swimming pool, open-plan living and dining space that spills onto a convivial veranda, a library, a home cinema and a garden spa with jacuzzi, steam bath and optional yoga sessions.
Devoid of formalities, a stay here is blissfully private and relaxing. This is very much a home from home, beloved of couples, friends and families, where you can expect subtle luxuries, nutritious home-cooked food and highly personalised service amidst a remarkable sanctuary of peace and calm.
Golfers will delight in the Donald Steel-designed 18-hole golf course, yet the locality offers so much more; bountiful nature, cultural sights and inspirational people.
