This place is a sweet mini paradise on earth. Getting here can be somewhat a task but it felt like a cake walk to me and my husband. The manager of the hotel was sweet enough to personally come and receive us. We got off at a bus stop nearby to the hotel from a local bus we took from... More

It is a nice and quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of the inner city of Kandy. It is a very homely and comfortable place. A great place to get to know your family better, enjoy a quiet meal under the stars or just relax in one of the chalets listening to the subtle yet captivating sound of nature.... More

Visited the villa for relaxation purpose. Went with my two best friends and we enjoyed the surroundings very much. The food was amazing, loved the location and we were satisfied with the facilities available in the chalets. There was a certain calming vibe. Loved the service.

Lovely place in the middle of a jungle/village. It's quite difficult to find the place, but all your bad feelings will fade once you reach the destination! Villas are now managed by Mahaweli Reach hotel and the service is excellent! There are 5 nicely designed, spacious cabanas, with air conditioning, free wifi (please inform the management you need wifi), very... More

Spent 2 days here with my Fiancée. Lovely location and hotel staff. The hotel manager is a lovely bloke to chat with and attends to everything with such passion. The place was under renovations when we visited but that didn't stop us from having a great time. The staff went out of their way to meet our needs. Would definitely... More

Stayed for 1 night, our first night in Sri Lanka. The remote location gave us the peace and quiet we needed after a long travel. Rooms- nicely designed cabanas, with super-comfortable bed, a/c, and big bathroom with a jacuzzi! Each room is facing the jungle, so you get a great filling of privacy. Facilities- beutiful Sri Lankan style reception and... More

The place was a revelation. It is located in a small village off Colombo-Kandy road and is definitely the place to be if you are looking for peace, calm and a connection with nature. The manager Deepal was an excellent host and met our every demand with a smile. His staff was equally helpful and accommodating. The food and the... More

Athulya Villas is a quaint little walauwa in Kadugannawa (about 45 mins from Kandy). It's got a lovely swimming pool, and while the rooms are a bit small they've got jacuzzis to make up for it (besides, you don't spend too much time in the room. It's nicer to sit outside and soak up your surroundings - lots of great... More
