We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We loved the decor and atmosphere of the hotel. Felt relaxed from the moment we arrived and we met by smiles and a refreshing drink. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed all our meals there. I wish we had been able to stay longer.

Great Views and spacious rooms
Excellent hotel, except for the fact we didn’t know that they don’t serve alcohol... if we had known in advance we could have been better prepared and bought our own wine for dinner.

The views are worth the journey
The Tourmaline and its partner hotel the Topaz sit high above Kandy with beautiful views over the city. It is reached via a steep, winding road, but the views, and the hotel itself, are worth the journey. Reception was prompt, and all staff were friendly and attentive. The rooms were large and had everything we needed - comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom, strong wifi and good electrical outlets. The breakfast buffet was delicious.
