A Garden of Pleasure. A Haven of Peace

Thilanka Hotel – Kandy, Sri Lanka A Garden of Pleasure. A Haven of Peace


Bursting with the vibrant, luscious beauty of the hill country, gloriously adorned with wild strawberries and ferns, lies Thilanka Hotel in the historic city of Kandy with an ethereal touch of exotic grandeur. Standing alone in awesome splendor, set in serene tranquility, Hotel Thilanka is a symbol of glory and magnificence.


Thilanka Hotel, Kandy began as a simple five-bedroom guesthouse in 1978. Guests were served home-cooked meals and treated as family, in the ancient Kandyan tradition of hospitality.

Over the years it grew, into a small hotel by 1983 and gradually into the current 92-room facility.

Less than ten years ago we also expanded & constructed Thilanka Resort and Spa at Dambulla, providing a unique living experience in the heart of Sri Lankan agriculture and history.

During nearly 40 years of service, our one focus has been to provide the comforts of a Kandyan home with the luxury and modern facilities of a well-reputed hotel. Some of our staff members have been with us on this journey for over how many years and their total commitment to our cause is what makes us special.

We are not merely a Sri Lankan hotel chain, and we are hardly a business.

We are a family and a home.

And you are always welcome to visit.
