My wife and I pre-booked and arrived very early, 7.30am, and the owner was kind enough to let us use a spare room for a few hours so that we could shower and get a little sleep after flying from the UK and until the folk in our chalet checked out. The cottage we stayed in was very clean indeed.... More

We stayed here just for a day at the end of our SriLanka trip.. but wished we had stayed here for a longer period. We stayed in the Luxury Chalets.. understand that these were designed by the owners themselves and everything was planned with lot of love and attention to detail. The bathroom was the highlight with an open shower... More

We have just returned from a week's trip to Sri Lanka. We stayed at Villa Shade, a cozy cottage tucked away amidst nature, about twenty minutes drive from Colombo Airport. We had a very comfortable stay at "Villa Shade" and have come back with fond memories of the warmth and hospitality extended to us. Those who are looking for home... More

We had a wonderful time at Villa Shade. My husband and I spent the last leg of our honeymoon here and it was extremely relaxing. We stayed at one of their newly constructed chalets and it had the most beautiful interiors and partial open air bathroom. It offered just the right amount of privacy. A small suggestion would be to... More

This was for the second time I booked my room at Villa Shade: three nights at arrival and two nights at departure. All my stay proved to be memorable. The two new cottages are environmental friendly. All inside inspires relaxation and comfort. Sparkling clean bathroom, fresh bedlinen, tasty breakfast and dinner, and a friendly smiling staff always around to help.... More

We were only staying in Villa Shade for one night but they made it very memorable. Mr. Deepika and his wife are lovely people, also the other staff, they want you to have the best time and they do everything for you. The room was absolutely amazing and clean. We got our own personal driver to take us places in... More

We had the most magical last night in Sri Lanka thanks to Villa Shade! After a long drive we were welcomed by the most friendly, kind staff and a lovely cool drink and led into the magical gardens and were shown to our beautiful bungalow with stunning bathroom! We were provided with an amazing dinner which was followed by the... More

Spent 2 nights at Villa Shade. Small room but there was 2 big double beds, which was exactly what we needed for our family of 4. 15-min drive away from Kandy but having dinner at the guest house was a great experience. We even got some yummy soup for our young kids! Homemade dishes, felt like home. Really warm welcome... More

I stayed in this beautiful home-stay and I must say I just did not want to leave! They have two kinds of accommodation options - 1) rooms within the main house - single , double and triple rooms with attached or close by bathrooms 2) two lovely lovely chalets outside the main house but within the property walls. The rooms... More
