An assignment necessitated a quick visit to Kandy and we chose to stay at Bougan Villa recommended by a family member. Our stay was a heart-warming experience. The owner Shyamalee Wickramasingha herself was there to meet us as we clambered out of our transport and ushered us into her gracious lounge.A welcome drink and then we were shown our bedroom- beautifully appointed with intriguing objects d'art on the walls and tables. The en suite bathroom equally fastidiously furnished was large enough to accommodate another bedroom! The dinner that followed was very generous and included the best hoppers I have ever eaten. Breakfast the next day was as generous with Western and Sri Lankan fare - tastefully presented and tasteful to enjoy.
Bougan Villa was indeed a serendipitous choice of a bed and breakfast retreat.. Located above the heart of Kandy town, it presents stunning views of the surrounding hills. Though close to the town and therefore handy for those who wish to explore Kandy, the villa itself is serene and quiet and would make an ideal space for someone who wishes to read or write in a quiet haven. It has 3 large beautifully appointed bedrooms each of which can accommodate 2-3 persons very comfortably. The food is excellent, the staff attentive and not obtrusive. We felt pampered indeed! If you are looking for excellence in hospitality while in Kandy, I would recommend Bougan Villa with no hesitation at all.More
