I want to add our recommendation for this Villa! The owner welcomes you with a smile and was so very helpful in telling us about sites, restaurants, etc. The breakfast was very good--we had a western breakfast for the two nights we were there! The morning that we had to leave, they made us an early breakfast which was very... More

We stayed twice at Anna Shanti, before and after our Knuckles Range hike, in two different rooms. Both were equally clean and spacious with a luxurious feeling. The reception from the kind manager and the staff was always sunny and welcoming. Anna Shanti is located in a quiet area at the other end of the lake from the city centre.... More

This place is so clean that you could eat off the floor. Their attention to detail is excellent & they strive hard to please. The location is quiet, so we slept well. It is great value for money & they offer a laundry service at no cost. The rooms have a DVD player. Nothing is too much trouble for the... More

Very comfortable and clean environment and the rooms have all the modern conveniences. More hotel than guesthouse it was a very comfortable stay and the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

We spent a couple of nights here in December. It's a lovely guesthouse, very well maintained and modern, and probably the comfiest bed we had in our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. The staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful, as is the owner. Breakfasts were really good. Location is at the opposite end of the lake from town and... More
