I am channeling Forrest Gump now...instead of using the analogy of describing life is akin to a box of chocolate, Mas Villa is truly THE needle in a haystack and when you find it, you shall appreciate what a fine needle it is. This villa is originally owned by a prominent Minister in Sri Lanka, who had the Dam nearby... More

We had the suite room and the views from the enormous room were stunning. The food was lovely and so were the staff. Damian took us down to the reservoir where we had a swim. - it was warmer than the pool. Although the place was lovely it just needs a little more TLC

We stayed 3 nights at Mas Villa. It is a wonderful place to finish out our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. The courtyard is peaceful and the rooms comfortable. The setting is beautiful, with a view to the lake and paddy fields. We only ate breakfasts there, but they were good. Eggs to order and fruit. The staff was the... More

Damian welcomed us with charm and a wonderful sense of humour. The room (we stayed in the entire top floor) was magnificent. Sitting eating a delicious dinner prepared by the very friendly chef was a highlight. Breakfast also as the views are something out of this world. Our only sadness was that we arrived late and left early.

It was a rather long drive from Kandy and we wondered where we were going, however our driver knew the way and we eventually arrived at this charming villa overlooking a lake and terraced rice paddies. We were graciously welcomed with fresh juice and cool towels and upgraded to a spacious room. The staff could not have been more helpful... More

This is more like a second home than a hotel. It was fun to wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee by myself on the back porch overlooking the rice paddies. And staying up late watching my daughter play pool with the chef and a family from Sweden. This was an special place.

We stayed at Mas Villa from 24th Dec for 2 nights. This place is in the most amazing setting, near cloud covered hills looking out over a lake and waterfalls.It was a pleasure to eat meals looking out on that vista each day. We had a lovely room with an amazingly comfortable bed. The place is very peaceful and quiet... More
