River Grove-Kandy Sri Lanka

Overview of River Grove-Kandy

River Grove, set on a hillock in tropical gardens, is a homestay experience that provides an insight into Sri Lankan living and traditional cuisine. Owners, Raja and Shirani are very hospitable and will ensure guests have a relaxing holiday. River Grove is only occupied by the two of them and their staff. Shirani is an excellent cook and is happy to share her recipes with guests. Go bird watching along the Mahaweli River; visit Kandy’s ancient cultural sites or just relax in the garden with a cup of Ceylon tea. River Grove can accommodate four guests.

Excursions at River Grove

Go for a stroll down hill and along the Mahaweli River and watch life as it unfolds in the suburbs of Kandy. Bird watching is also rewarding with numerous species of hill country birds that can be spotted in the garden. Visit the Temple of the Tooth where a sacred tooth relic of the Lord Buddha is enshrined since 4th Century A.D. The temple has decorative walls, a golden roof and fine woodwork. Religious services (pooja) with traditional music and drumming are held daily at dawn, mid-day and in the evening where guests can participate. There are several other ancient temples including Gadaladeniya, Lankathillake, and Embekke which are well worth a visit. Experience Kandy’s rich ancient arts and crafts including drum making, Dumbara mat waving, crafting Kandyan jewelry, and traditional Kandyan dance and drumming.
