The magic starts when you walk through the wide entrance. A vista of highly polished concrete flooring leads your eye to the framed view of the hills clothed in tropical vegetation on the far side of the river. The view is splendid and the setting is a tranquil oasis. The staff are a delight, so kind and polite, giving a...

Villa Rosa is a wonderful property located at the top of a hill with an amazing view. We were warmly welcomed by the German owner, Volker, who showed us around the property and explained the details with tours, meals, etc. whilst we sipped a cold drink. The staff were all very nice and service was some of the best we...

We stayed here for 2 nights of our honeymoon. We had a lovely room with a fantastic view over the river and sun loungers and a table and chairs on our own terrace. It's very calm and peaceful and they serve snacks all day with a good choise.The dinner was absolutely scrummy! We had fantastic Sri Lankan Curries both nights...

Some people stay in Kandy. Don't. Once you get just a few minutes out of town, you can find hotels that are beautiful, peaceful and have amazing views just like Villa Rosa. The property is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and it actually feels like visiting someone's home than being in a hotel - but with all the service you...

This is a small select hotel in the hills above Kandy. It is an excellent retreat after a day's sightseeing. Very relaxing. No pool, but sun beds provided. They will take you to a nearby hotel if you want to use a pool. Rooms and facilities good. Food was pretty good, except for the pasta meal we tried. Very good...

Me and my partner loved our stay at Villa Rosa. The hotel is like an oasis in the hills. Our room was huge with an amazing balcony view. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast and dinners were delicious. I couldn't recommend Villa Rosa more for a fancy few days while in Kandy.

We are happy, that it is not only the view which is impressing our guests - because there are different rooms with different views in Villa Rosa at different rates. But it is also our service and the food that is mentioned again and again as something special at Villa Rosa in Kandy - and we are proud of it....

Villa Rosa is run by a European who clearly wants to create a casual and comfortable environment for his guests. His staff couldn't be more accommodating and it's like being in a private home. There isn't a lot to do there but for a day or two of relaxation, it is just the ticket. Walk the beach in front of...

Villa Rosa is a very special place with a fantastic view. Volker is a really welcoming host and gives you helpful information to make the most of your stay. Nothing is too much trouble and his staff are excellent. The food is fantastic and the rooms are beautifully presented. We wish we could have stayed longer !

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...

Yes, we have 10 rooms, 3 dogs and the place is only 2,5 km away from town but away from the hussle and bussle of Kandy, overlooking the Maheweli River, the big river of Sri Lanka! Your driver has to make a little effort to find the place, but there are sign boards once you come closer to Villa Rosa....
