Our story begins in the early 1970s, a tale full of determination and daring, not to mention a sense of adventure! It was during this time that the late Mr. Atul Panabokke, a tea planter by profession, had the singular vision of offering travellers a true home away from home in the hill country. From humble beginnings as a four-roomed guesthouse, overseen by Mr. Panabokke and his wife and sons, the property has been transformed into the five star luxury hotel in Kandy it is today.

Throughout the passing of time, Mahaweli Reach Hotel has stayed true to its founder’s original vision, creating a modern establishment rooted in rich traditions. The genuine essence of heartfelt Sri Lankan hospitality and personalized service, treating each guest as part of our extended family, is very much a part of our ethos. This indigenous identity is something that is important to us as we combine the proud heritage of our past with a sense of contemporary sophistication, providing guests with a holiday of a lifetime. The renowned Universal Group of Maldives is also now a major stakeholder of Mahaweli Reach and this strategic alliance has started a new chapter in our story.



We know that each guest who stays at Mahaweli Reach Hotel wants to experience something different while on holiday. That is why we look to cater to these diverse needs, be it taking part in fun activities, conducting business or experiencing some refreshing relaxation. The wide selection of facilities at our boutique hotel in Kandy reflects this concept; have a cooling dip in the pool, head off on a pedal-powered adventure or stay connected to the corporate world. You can even indulge in some personal pampering at our luxury Ayurveda spa.

Come unwind, be yourself and enjoy a getaway in the hills, doing what you love best.



Enter a world of tranquility, a quiet escape by a lotus pond, with the waters of the Mahaweli River flowing just beyond. Feel stress just melt away as ancient healing rituals take you on a journey to find true inner bliss.

Serenity abounds at our spa in Kandy, with a focus on traditional Ayurveda treatments that go beyond providing temporary relief, offering holistic healing for mind, body, and soul. Operated by Spa Ceylon, this oasis of wellness features individual and couples treatment rooms, where experienced therapists will guide you through age-old Ayurvedic therapies. We also have a sauna and a separate foot spa area for that extra bit of pampering. Complemented by mood lighting and a soothing ambience, the stage is set for complete rejuvenation.
