The luxury boutique hotel, Elephant Stables is just 10 minutes away from the historic city of Kandy in cool central hills. It is an old colonial bungalow, previously the home of Sir Cudah Ratwatte, a patriarch of the one of island’s leading aristocratic family. Many elephants were once housed in the gardens of his old plantation – hence the name The Elephant Stables.
