Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka. Home to the famous Temple of the Tooth, it is a must visit when on the island. A stay in Kandy is best enjoyed in one of the boutique hotels in the area, some in the city center and others a bit further up the mountains.

The Elephant Stables is a gorgeous little hotel perched on the hillside with a view of the valley below. Only ten minutes from Kandy center, the boutique hotel welcomes families and travelers of all styles. The gardens are home to a family of tortoises that kids love to discover in between the bushes. The food is lovely and the hospitality is top notch. This old house used to belong to a Kandy aristocrat who kept elephants in his fields, hence the name.
