“A gorgeous house in a stunning location, offering peace and tranquility”

I spent three blissful days at Aqua Dunhinda, a beautifully designed modern house on a most spectacular setting overlooking a rushing river. It is truly a place of relaxation and retreat, with the sound of the river below as a balm for an anxious soul. And then there are the beautiful birds...

The villa is close enough to Kandy to make it a fine base for exploring the town and its sites (botanical garden etc) but actually from the time we arrived, we did not want to leave the place at all, but just to revel in its glory. The pool is perhaps one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, given how it overlooks the river.

The solicitous staff looked after our every need with a smile, and we feasted on delicious home-cooked meals, with the Sri Lankan cuisine based on the owners traditional family recipes.

It is an ideal house for a family or group of friends looking for a special getaway, far from the madding crowd.

“Amazing”
Reviewed September 24, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a great family time here. The space is luxury, the view breathtaking, the pool fun and the food delicious. The staff is helpfully any time and with anything. We did some sightseeing in Kandy and white water rafting and canyon about a hour away. Highly recommended place!

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Pictures really don't do this beautiful place justice. What a spectacular home! This was the perfect end to our trip through Sri Lanka.

Prashan's mom, Sujith and his team did everything in their power to make our short stay here unforgettable and still managed to surprise us with delicious Sri Lankan food we had not tasted anywhere during our trip. The staff was always there when we needed them, with smiles and kind care. Even with Sanjeeva's unexpected absence, Sujith and his team did a perfect job in making sure everything was comfortable for us.

We will definitely be recommending Aqua Dunhinda to our friends and family and hope to come back some day.

“Paradise !”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I stayed at this really beautiful villa in May and it has been just wonderful ! The villa is very well decorated, the rooms are spacious and beautiful, the team is the nicest ! They are very professional and very nice. The cook made delicious plates for us. The place where the villa stands is just one the most beautiful we have ever seen, we were speechless in front of the landscape ! It is also very calm and quiet. So we will surely come back in Aqua Dunhida Villa ! Thank you very much to the team !!

“Paradise Found!”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just spent a fantastic week in Sri Lanka at Aqua Dunhinda; a beautiful villa in a spectacular setting on the outskirts of Gampola. The villa offers an oasis of calm and tranquility away from the vibrant, bustling villages and towns. The garden and landscape around the villa are a nature lovers dream. Birds, bees, butterflys, ghekos, squirrels, monkeys and frogs are just a few of the daily visitors. The staff at the villa are welcoming, very attentive and yet discreet. Food at the villa is delicious and it's fun tasting new dishes. You will find a little bit of paradise at Aqua Dunhinda. Our visit was enhanced due to the recent addition of the pool and oh what a view from that pool! We plan to return one day soon.
