We traveled as a couple, so for a more accurate description, we will give our reviews separately.

Her review:
We arrived by train to Kandy from Colombo (we recommend the train when traveling through SL) and then by tuk-tuk. This is a remote place in the mountains (not a touristic spot).
The place is a superbly designed home owned by Lotte and Shadwell. Our room had an open bathroom with even an outside shower with cold water (shower with hot water also available inside) and direct access to the pool overlooking the jungle. We ate all meals with the hosts (everything organic cooked - mango, coconut, spices, herbs from the garden) - at a very good price. Garden and dining room were shared.
If you play golf or want to give it a try this is the perfect place - cheap price and fantastic scenery - only don't forget your polo shirt :-)
We also took a walk at the edge of the jungle and to a remote temple nearby.
On the last evening Lotte and Shadwell had a party...

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...
