About Elephant Stables

Set upon a hillside overlooking Kandy, Elephant Stables combines colonial heritage with contemporary design. Formerly home to the island’s leading aristocratic family, the old colonial bungalow has been beautifully converted into an exceptional boutique hotel. The collection of spacious rooms and suites feature comfortable four-poster beds and splashes of colour. Most rooms have a balcony and the suites are perfect for families.

Elephant Stables boasts a designer swimming pool offering sweeping views across the hillsides, a garden with lush foliage and a bar complete with an array of cocktails. Just 10 minutes’ drive from Kandy, the hotel is a tranquil oasis from the bustle of town.  After a busy day, relax in the reading room brimming with interesting books on Sri Lankan history and wildlife. Head to the living room for a classic movie night. For those who like to explore, it is easy to visit the Cultural Triangle or tea estates of Hill Country from here.
