The views are worth the journey

The Tourmaline and its partner hotel the Topaz sit high above Kandy with beautiful views over the city. It is reached via a steep, winding road, but the views, and the hotel itself, are worth the journey. Reception was prompt, and all staff were friendly and attentive. The rooms were large and had everything we needed - comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom, strong wifi and good electrical outlets. The breakfast buffet was delicious.

Excellent comfortable and spacious Kandy Hotel

Room was spacious with great view. Wifi was not available in the pool area. Staff and service exceptional. Food was superb. Location good for the view not so good for getting around and need to rely on transport and not walking distance to anything so a bit isolated. Probably not quite 5 star although it was excellent.

Stayed 2 nights in Mar 2019
