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

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

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

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

Lovely self contained buildings with everything needed for a short or long stay. Owner and staff did everything possible to help from ordering tuk tuks to walking my husband down the road to show him a great take away for our evening meal. The best string hoppers for breakfast. Loved the outdoor shower and the lovely little frog in the... More

I have to say, I would like to come once again if I have chance in future, Just one night I stayed. This is very difference with the Hotel in China. The owner of the Villa Shade is a mid age of local people who is very frendly and nice. I can feel the food was prepared by owner's wife... More
