This place was pretty amazing. The Villa is not huge by a long shot - maybe 10 rooms tops in 2 buildings so you have a pretty intimate feel. The owner Volker is a great host and interesting to talk to. There are also a few house dogs which are also great company. We had both breakfast and dinner at...

Unfortunately we only spent one night at Villa Rosa - our first night in Sri Lanka before catching the Kandy to Ella train. We arrived tired after our flight and the drive from Colombo but the journey was soon forgotten when we arrived and checked in. It is a beautiful house with a breathtaking view and comfortable rooms. The team...

I fell in love with this special place. The villa itself is beautiful, tastefully furnished, nestled into the hills. The view is stunning. You eat your breakfast looking out over the forest and river below. We watched a monkey one morning swing past, and a wild boar in the grasses one evening. The rooms are pretty, spacious and clean, with...

Superb views greet you as soon as you step through the gates of this beautiful hotel situated on one of the hills looking down upon the river that winds around Kandy. The owner is welcoming and the staff attentive. If you want to learn how they prepare the tradtional sri lankan dishes they welcome you into their kitchen. Short 2km...

Volker and his staff run an amazing property... They all have a real passion for making your stay special. The rooms are magnificent, the food superb (you can even talk with the chef) and you have views over a river valley that are stunning - 5 star all round. Would recommend to anyone.

I arrived to an upgraded room with a balcony that gave me spectacular views. The villa itself is like an upmarket house, beautifully designed with the views of the hills and valleys optimised everywhere. The staff are wonderful, Volke (the owner) has an amazing team with all of the staff on hand to make your stay extra special. The food...

Stayed here for the last 3 nights of our trip and could not have hoped for a better end to our Sri Lanka visit. The owner was there to welcome us on arrival and had even been kind enough to upgrade our room so we ended up having a river view and private balcony - just perfect! The staff at...

The view from the hotel is the first thing that strikes you. High over the river and with views far into the distance. The second thing is the amicable and impeccable service provided by the staff. The third is the top quality food. Delicious western and local food available to order. The fourth and final highlight is the rooms. Beautifully...

You are treated as a special guest, nothing too much trouble, food, location, view, rooms are just perfect. No pool but did not matter at all as took tuk tuk down to local hotel in no...
