Villa Rosa

Approached up a very steep and rough track this small, friendly hotel enjoys what must be the finest views in Kandy. Perched on a hillside above the city, its garden terrace offers stunning vistas over the Mahaweli River and the surrounding mountains. Inside, the decor is simple and elegant and the six spacious rooms have large patios or balconies from which to enjoy the views. Food is a very important concern here, and five star trained chefs will personally discuss the evening's proposed menu with you, incorporating any suggestions you have. If you wish, you can even join in with the cooking! Dinner is served on the garden terrace — a spectacular backdrop for a memorable meal.

The Villa incorporates a Wellness Hut with an in-house ayurvedic doctor, where treatments include steam baths, flower baths and massages. Guests can use the swimming pool at the nearby Citadel Hotel which is a two-minute tuk-tuk ride away, and the attractions of Kandy can be reached in ten minutes by car.
