Clingendael is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Secret Gems.

Located on the Victoria Golf and Country Resort, around 40-minutes from Kandy town, The Clingendael is situated on a hill at an elevation of 80 meters, offering sweeping vistas of the surrounding lush landscapes. A large home built in a Dutch Sri Lankan style, the materials date back to 1782 and embrace the timeless elements of old-world decor whilst effortlessly combining modern day amenities and luxury. The five large and well-appointed guest rooms are individually designed using fine artwork, antiques and furnishings in a charming manner.

Outside, there are spacious wrap around verandahs and colonnades offering visitors a stunning 230 degree breathtaking view over the Victoria reservoir and dam. The Clingendael’s gardens are a tropical paradise which leads down to a quaint and private infinity pool, perfect for whiling the day away whilst enjoying the stunning views. Meals at The Clingendael are served when you want, where you want and consist of Sri Lankan, Oriental and Western favourites which the chef will discuss with you. Whilst staying here it is hard to feel anything but pampered!

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
