About Kandy

In antiquity, Kandy was the political capital and home of the local monarchy, when the holder of the tooth of Buddha, a religious relic, was considered to be the ruler of the land. That relic is now housed at the Temple of the Tooth, considered one of the most sacred sites in the Buddhist world. The city fills with revelers every summer for the Esala Perahera festival, or Festival of the Tooth, when the relic is displayed in a procession led by dancers in traditional attire. Look up into the hills around Kandy and you’ll likely see the Bahiravokandra Vihara, a massive statue of Buddha that overlooks the city. This same hill offers some of the best views of Kandy. South of town, the Udawatta Kele Sanctuary houses the former Royal Park of Kandy, with more than 100 hectares of hiking trails, gardens, and wildlife. While it’s best-known for its spiritual history, Kandy is also a thriving modern city of about 125,000 people, with a diverse economy ranging from agriculture to textile and gemstone production to IT. This combination of attractions and infrastructure is one reason for its rising popularity among digital nomads.

Co-livings Spaces in Kandy

The co-living movement is starting to gain traction in Sri Lanka. That said, most of the options currently are located along the island’s southern coast, like Verse Collective in Dikwella and Cowork Surf’s space in Ahanagama. The capital, Colombo, has most of the island’s coworking spaces, which are in fairly short supply elsewhere on the island. Kandy is relatively centrally located but it’s still about a 2-hour drive from Colombo—further than most want to commute on a daily basis. This doesn’t mean you’re out of luck as a remote worker in Kandy. Furnished short- and long-term rentals are relatively easy to find and book online. These include rooms in shared houses along with private apartments, so you can still get the social aspect of co-living while you stay in Kandy. Most of these accommodations will come with Wi-Fi and other utilities included, too. That’s crucial for remote workers since public Wi-Fi hotspots in Sri Lanka can be slow and unreliable.

What is Co-living?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
