What a beauty of a place! Perched high up in the tea hills of Sri Lanka, The Romance Vally sits directly on top of a hill, accessible only through a dirt road that winds up to the entrance of the villas. We used google maps so finding it was very easy, although I can see that it would be very easy to miss at night times. The property has 2 villas, sitting on top of each other. Both the villas are identical, with the one downstairs having an open air bathroom. Great spacious rooms, and fantastic views of the rolling hills ahead! Ideal place to get away from the hustle bustle of busy Sri Lanka, and a great vantage point to discover the rest the of Sri Lanka's tea hills. Gamini, the main housekeeper, was a lovely chap and went out of his way to make us feel at home (including sending us a text at midnight to wish us a happy new year!). The Sri Lankan food was delicious and we had the options of eating anywhere around the property. The infinity pool, while clean, was freezing cold, and the deck area caught a fair bit of sunshine. The rooms were extremely spacious, minimalistically designed (lots of wooden furniture and glass windows) and perfect for a serene getaway. No amenities are provided with the room (except for soap). Tv and dvds are provided in each room as well. A word of caution though - there are LOTS of bugs this high up in the hills - we spent the better part of the first night squatting mosquitoes and trying to rid our room from all sorts of bugs! Keep an eye out for the fireflies that light up your balcony after sundown - a truly magical experience. I highly recommend this place for travelers who want to get away from it all, and yet be a part of this truly beautiful part of Sri Lanka.
