Country Garden Resort is set within a five-acre plantation with diverse crops including tea, paddy, fruit, and vegetables. Accommodation is in five individual chalets overlooking a green valley. The restaurant is housed in the manor house of 1885, which originally belonged to the Panabokke family – a well-known Kandyan family. The traditional architectural features of this `walauwa’ is retained, including the courtyard, verandas and a rice granary. Interiors are furnished with antiques and the restaurant area also serves as an art gallery where local artists are encouraged to display and sell their works of art.

(2) Learning of Kandyan cuisine from shopping in the village market to preparation of rice and curries according to traditional Kandyan recipes. (3) Mind and body wellness through yoga and meditation. A minimum of three nights stay is recommended for those wishing to experience one of these specific programmes. Whether you want to learn of Kandy’s heritage or just relax and unwind in a homely Kandyan walauwa, Country Garden Resort provides for a good alternative to the larger hotels situated in town.
