To gain the most out of your stay and take advantage of the fantastic bungalows in Kandy, I would say 3 nights. You could do it in three nights, and of course, you could stay longer, but 3 nights is an optimal time.

What are the top things to do in Kandy?

There is lots to do in Kandy from exploring the Royal Botanical Gardens to visiting Buddha's tooth (yes, really!). Check out our guide on the best places to visit in Kandy to help plan your itinerary.
