Is it worth paying the extra for a with pool hotel in Kandy?

by LostinParadiseTR

I'm looking for accommodation in or very near Kandy, and finding that only the most expensive hotels have swimming pools. I wondered if it was worthwhile stretching the budget for this ........... or will the water be too cold to be enjoyable (I realise temperatures dip low at nighttime)? I will be there next January.

In general the water in the pools in Kandy is cold to very cold.

Not only the most expensive hotels have swimming pools. Hotels like Serene Garden, Hotel Senani and Thilanka Hotel all have pools. Double room with dinner and breakfast is about LKR 7,000.

The best time to dip in the pool would be after 5pm when the water is at its warmest.. Pool temperature in Kandy is not freezing or even cold.. If you visiting during the summer, temperature is of no concern as the weather is mild to warm.. November, December, January are the cooler months and pool temperature can drop a bit (as low as 20'C)

The accommodation cost can vary from $55/- to $180/- per night. Hotel Topaz has some good rates for the months of May,June,July etc.. Yes, they have a pool..

Thanks for info. I am planning my holiday for January. I've just checked local information here for comparison..... sea temperature here in May is 19 deg average ....not pleasant at first but just about ok for a quick swim. Think I wont make a pool a priority in Kandy. I will be staying on the coast as well, so I wont miss out on swimming during the holiday as a whole. (I'm assuming the sea on the south coast will be warmer than 20 deg)

Sea temperatures will be 27-28C in January.

During December, January (which are the cooler months), sea temperature should not be of any concern as its in the tropics :)
It may range from 24'C (early morning) to 27' (afternoon to evening)... During the rest of the year, no one honestly cares as its blistering hot and any large body of water is a welcome guest!! :)

Travel Tips for Kandy

the bad and the ugly

by call_me_rhia

Kandy is supposed to be a city of charm and a city of culture. I had high expectations. It's
situated beside a lake in the hills, roughly about 2 hours from Colombo. Ands it's famous... for its Temple of the Tooth, and for its dances. Kandy is a dump: it's really deprived of any charm... the place looks as if it's crumbling down, falling apart, disintegrating... maybe i wish it did. Reconstruction can only do some good to it. The temple, in all fairness is ok, the dances a real big-scale tourist trap-

In the jungle

by Charlie_UK

The Asgiriya stadium, Kandy: A beautiful ground cut out of the hillside, bordered by lush jungle all around, overlooked by a gaint plaster of paris (?) Buddha statue and distant mountains. If you can bear the toilets, it's a fabulous location.

The match itself wasn't so good, but what a setting! Sunhat, sun block and shades, unless under cover.

Perahera in Kandy

by myriam_c

If you go to Sri Lanka and you don't fear the heat & the humidity, try to be there during August's full moon. Sri Lankan buddhists celebrate the yearly Esala Perahera. Especially the city of Kandy is then jammed with ten thousands of celebrating people and the festival lasts for 5 nights. People and elephants are dressed up in gold & silver and colourful outfits to join the parades of dancers, musicians, fire-spitters, etc. Not only in Kandy, but also in the rest of the country they celebrate Perahera. In fact smaller Perahera are celebrated each month on Poya nights, i.e. full moon.

Kandyan Dancers

by wwroam

Traditional kandyan & Low Country Dances are performed at several venues in Kandy.
I had `the pleasure of seeing the performance at The Kandyan Arts Association Hall. This performance permits attendance at the Temple of the Tooth on the same night.

Temple of the Tooth

by Nilanka

The Temple of the Tooth also know as the Sri Dalada Maligawa was constucted by Kandyan Kings during the 17th Century. It houses the Lord Buddhas tooth and hence its name. It is situated in the centre of Kandy bordering the Kandy Lake.

The Temple also has a museam which has many items from the era of the Kandyan Kings and is on the first floor of the temple complex.
