Located high in the Hunus mountains range which protects Kandy city. Surrounded by lush forestry and landscaped gardens, a lake and a 6 hole par3 golf course, Hunus Falls is a paradise for country lovers.
Travellers wishing to enjoy the mountains, birdlife and Kandy at a slow pace will delight in the nature trails through the woodland guided by bird and nature specialists.
A 40 minute car drive out of Kandy, the cultural and historic centre, but the hotel's facilities more than compensate. Any family's requirements are met with swimming pool, indoor games, tennis court, billiards , and a creche.
The large hotel exterior belies its total of only 35 rooms, including 4 themed suites. Each overlooks the fun-fishing lake, lily ponds and beyond to the City.
Hunus Falls spreads across the lush green forest with the facilities of a five star hotel, yet its peaceful ambience is maintained with only 28 rooms and four suites.
Each has breathtaking views of the forest, mountains or lake, from the panoramic windows and balconies.
9 Superior rooms and 19 Deluxe rooms(mini suites) offering slightly more space, are carpetted throughout and are furnished with double or twin beds. The furniture is generic in style with little Sri Lankan flavour but comfortable and with ample storage space.
Air conditioning, music, telephone, mini-bar and TV come as standard plus tea making facilities to revive you after those taxing nature treks. The ensuite shower rooms are spacious and sparkle around the white modern vanity, shower and bath suites.
The themed suites add a touch of the extraordinary.
Luxury apartments - Katsuru and Highlands have all the uniqueness of Japan and Scotland respectively.
Katsuri: Kimono's hang on walls and floor cushions await at the seated dining area. A yen-style bedroom and ensuite jacuzzi bathroom invite all to relax in style. The sitting room is harmonious with open water features and stunning views over the estate.
Highlands: Huge open fire, plaid armchairs and an open kitchen and banquet style dining room offer all the grandeur of a Scottish castle. A cottage style bedroom and ensuite jacuzzi bathroom.
Both suites come to life with your personal butler, and the dining rooms can comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests.
Two new Royal suites have just been cmpleted, not yet reviewed so the theme is a surprise to all.
Dine a la carte in the dining room or within your suite. A broad menu of international flavours including western , Eastern and Sri lankan dishes are available. Fish and mutton are not common as they are not fresh in this area, but the vegetables and fruits in this region and climate are full of flavour. River fish is a pleasant meaty fish and is fresh form the Victoria lake. The peppered steak was my favourite and beautifully tender.
The chef can cater for vegetarians and offers a wonderful variety of vegetarian curries and nut and dhal dishes.
When ordering a meal from your suite menus can be adapted to a theme, for example a roast banquest or Japanese fried rice. However, we would question the authenticity of the chef's diversity and the freshness of the fish if guests wanted sushi. The chefs have first class international training and the ambience will be created by your personal butler.
A wide selection of International wines are avialable.
