Clingendael, Victoria Golf and Country Resort

Welcome to Clingendael

Clingendael located 30 minutes east of the ancient hill capitol Kandy is a typical example of the famous Sri Lankan architecture of stately homes which were built in Sri Lanka during the last 3 hundred years. Clingendael provides the experience to wonder back to the bygone days of Colonial Splendour and Über Luxury.



Excess on occasion is exhilarating.
It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit

( William Somerset Maugham )

visit     Clingendael


High in the rolling hills of Kandy, in the very heart of Sri Lanka, lies a hideaway of unparalleled privacy, colonial luxury and impeccable taste. Stepping through the entrance gateway, we are instantly entranced by the unparalleled view down to the house and the Knuckles Mountains beyond. A stone path leads us past the pretty spa, down through the gardens, under shady trees to stepping stones across a koi pond. Sweeping vistas of lush greenery and colourful tropical flowers at every turn. As though the hands of time have turned back, we are ushered into a bygone era. Clingendael is an ultra luxury boutique hotel, which offers guests the best of both worlds: an intimate environment with bespoke service; and yet all the facilities of a much larger property. With only five luxury suites, accommodating up to twelve guests at a time, this exclusive retreat, is perfect for romantic escapes or larger social reunions

Lord Robert Grantham of Downton Abbey fame would have
felt very much at home here

(RK-London- UK)

Clingendael may be the closest thing to paradise on earth. From the moment we arrived, we felt refreshed and relaxed. The setting is spectacularly beautiful and the staff were wonderfully warm and welcoming. It felt as though we were staying not at a hotel, but rather at the stately home of a friend- a friend who happened to have impeccable taste and a great chef. Our three nights here were simply perfect- we could not have asked for a better experience. We will be sure to recommend Clingendael to everyone and very much hope to return. Thank you for making our holiday so special
