ABOUT THILANKA HOTELS & RESORTS
Thilanka Hotel, Kandy began as a simple five-bedroom guesthouse in 1978. Guests were served home-cooked meals and treated as family, in the ancient Kandyan tradition of hospitality.
Over the years it grew, into a small hotel by 1983 and gradually into the current 92-room facility.
Less than ten years ago we also expanded & constructed Thilank Resort and Spa at Dambulla, providing a unique living experine in the heart of Sri Lankan agriculture and history.
During nearly 40 years of service, our one focus has been to provide the comforts of a Kandyan home with the luxury and modern facilities of a well-reputed hotel. Some of our staff members have been with us on this journey for over how many years and their total commitment to our cause is what makes us special.
We are not merely a Sri Lankan hotel chain, and we are hardly a business.
We are a family and a home.
And you are always welcome to visit.

ADVENTURES & AMUSEMENTS
RESTAURANT THILANKA HOTEL KANDY
At Thilanka Hotel Kandy, we like to keep things simple. So the Thilanka Restaurant has just a stone floor and cane furniture. There is nothing very fancy about the restaurant itself because, honestly, it’s all about food.
Our menus include continental an American breakfasts and a rich international spread at lunch and dinner, be it buffet or ala carte. And we are always well stocked on fresh greens, so being vegetarian is finally not a problem!
Saturday nights, we turn things up a notch with our barbeque buffet. If live action at the grill is not to your liking, then there are plenty of other options. How would you like a private candle-lit dinner under the stars, with a gentle breeze rising from the lake to keep you company? If your party is bigger than two, a small garden dinner might be ideal. Or if all you want is a couch potato, let our Room Service staff spoil you a little an bring whatever you feel like, right to the TV.
We cook for you with loving care, and we want you to know it.
