“Superb location and outstanding hospitality”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Villa 49 for a few days and I must say that this is an amazing place if you are looking for that home away from home. We were warmly welcomed by the extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to ensure that we had a good holiday. The house gives you a warm and cozy feeling and is located amidst a serene setting, overlooking a lake. One of the highlights of the location is that it’s central to and walking distance from all major attractions such as the museum and the temple of the tooth relic. The rooms were well maintained with all amenities and the food was very good. We especially enjoyed breakfast. Villa 49 is definitely value for money and I highly recommend it if you want to have a relaxing and pampered holiday. We hope to stay here on our next visit to Sri Lanka.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

Visited in Dec 2011 while vacationing in Sri Lanka. Villa 49 is in Kandy, a lively city with great sunny weather and a wealth of ancient history to explore ~ highly recommended as a must-visit location if you are visiting Sri Lanka. Villa 49 is centrally situated, within walking distance to the museum, the city downtown and main archaeological sites and overlooks a beautiful lake - esp. important due to high level of vehicular congestion which can make traveling time consuming. The staff are excellent and helpful to a fault, rooms extremely clean and well maintained, and the food delicious (the not-so-spicy chicken curry is to die for!). Highly recommended, and probably enjoyed the family environment even more than some of the 5 star properties we stayed at in coastal Sri Lanka.
