Library Bougainvillea Retreat Kandy


There’s nothing quite like immersing yourself into a good holiday read while lazing under a parasol in the midday tropical heat. Bougainvillea Retreat has a dedicated library with many titles on offer in a number of European languages. As the property became a hotel, the library also altered along with it and now doubles up as the hotel office. A computer with an internet connection is available for use by guests who may require something to be printed. Please feel free to pop in to collect a book or make use of the computer.
