Having travelled around Sri Lanka a few times we found Villa Sandalwood to be such a wonderful have amongst the somewhat busy- but still fabulous Kandy. Owners Bathiya and his wife are so lovely and always willing to help out with anything and ensure you really enjoy your stay. Bathiya was a brilliant host and arranged for a specialist to see my sister (ear trouble!) and even took us to the clinic. We felt so relaxed and peaceful here and even made friends with the Palekelle kids and had a few games of cricket! The food is awesome and prepared by Amma in true Sri Lankan style and served with wonderful hospitality. Can't fault Villa Sandalwood at all and would HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous place - roof top terrace has AMAZING 360.degree view of Kandy, mountains and the beautiful river. If you go to Kandy this should be on your list as a place to stay as it is great to come back to the peace and quiet after being in Kandy centre. It is only a short fun ride in a tuk tuk.
Bathiya, I am sorry it has taken so long to write this review! Thank you soo much for making our stay rememberable.
