This place is absolutely terrible! Do not book!!!!! I can't even believe they get away with what they are charging! It is dirty, dated, sad and depressing. One of the worst places I have ever stayed in ever! We fully intend to contact booking.com upon our return to see if we can get some sort of refund. We asked the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in November . The staff were very friendly and helpful . The room was huge and had everything we needed .

We stayed for two nights as part of our honeymoon. The staff are very attentive and as we were the only couple staying were very keen to please. It was clear they were all very lovely people and went out of their way to organise things for us. The only downside was the dining room was a little quiet and... More

We traveled as a family to Kandy and stayed at Swetha Villa. The room was spacious and could easily accommodate 3 people. Surroundings are lush green. Chef prepared good food especially sting-hoppers. Overall, they took great care of us. We would recommend this place fellow travelers. However, swimming pool needs renovation as it is sinking on one side.

I stayed at Swetha Villa whilst travelling around Sri Lanka on my honeymoon. Our room was very large and clean. The staff are very friendly and keen to please.

This is my third stay at this place and I love this place for its calm, cool and rich environment. The owner was so kind and a phylanthropist.

My wife and I stayed at Swetha Villa mid April 2013. This real Villa (3 or 4 massive rooms) is peacefully situated just outside downtown Kandy (15 to 20 minute walk). Since it has only a couple of rooms it is really quiet and relaxed and it offers a great operating base for exploring Kandy and its surroundings. The staff... More
