We had the real pleasure of staying at Villa Sandalwood for 5 nights - we loved it so much we extended our original booking by an extra 2 nights! The location is just outside Kandy, & easily reached either by local buses or tuk tuk (15 minutes). The Villa is immaculate, the rooms clean and fresh..& the rooftop restaurant a dream. The 360' views are spectacular as is the attention to detail and flair which characterised every delicious meal.
Above all, Bhartya, his wife Nishadi and family are delightful hosts. They were incredibly kind and helpful to us, enabling us to make the most of our stay - including a trip to the nearby Kandyian craft centre, a Sri Lankan cookery demonstration, and 'tweaking ' our itinery so that the rest of our trip made the very most of the Hill country & South coast. Bartya has 20 years of experience in the hotel industry and this was evident in the very high standards that our stay at Villa Sandalwood was managed . In contrast, Nishadi's extensive expertise in social welfare issues ( including work for the UN) meant that we were really able to learn more about this fascinating and complex country.
A stay here will refresh your weary bodies, delight your appetite with excellent food and introduce you to perhaps the nicest Sri Lankan people we met in the whole of our month long trip. Enjoy!!
