“Probably the most beautiful villa in the world.”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015
person found this review helpful

Amba Villa is situated with far ranging views over the Knuckles Range and Victoria Lake and close to the exclusive Victoria Lake Golf Course. It is the most heavenly place to stay. The master bedroom has windows on 3 sides and lying in the most comfortable of beds, surrounded by treetops and birds, with stunning views is like having your own private cloud. The bathrooms are beautifully furnished with robes and luxury spa products. And then there is the pool (salt water) over 30 metres of swimming bliss. This is not a private villa,however. You will be a paying guest (or homestay) sharing the villa with the owners and possibly one other couple. The hostess is charming and erudite and runs her home on Ayuverdic principles. The cook, cooks the most delicious of meals, with love. If you play golf, you will truly be in heaven. If though you want to explore the surrounding areas you will feel somewhat isolated and although your hosts can order transport for you, the logistics are difficult. There is a courtesy bar, beer and wine and an espresso machine at 5* hotel prices. Many of the amenities listed under tripadvisor apply to the nearby golf club rather than the villa, check with the owners. Wi Fi is only availabe using your host's mobile phone hot spot or at the golf club.
