Clove Villa
Ranked #4 of 56 Hotels in Kandy
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We are from Australia and visited Sri Lanka recently.
Me and my family stayed at Clove Villa in August 2013
On arrival, We were warmly greeted by the Staff with a welcome drink and kind gestures.

Charlie was like a personal butler attending to all our needs during the stay.

The room was clean and tidy and the decor was exceptional.
Infact the entire Villa's decor was quite calming and tastefully selected and also represented the Ancient City of Kandy's historic paintings and art.

We stayed for 3 nights and was comfortable in the spacious rooms.
The Villa also offered toddler cot for our 2 year old.

Although its only about 10-15 minutes to the city of Kandy, the Villa and overall location was quite clean and livable and was tucked away from the busyness and dust of the city.

I would definitely tell my friends about our fantastic experience in Clove Villa and would have no hesitance to recommend it to anyone from Australia or any where in the world visiting Sri Lanka and Kandy.

Also, I should mention that the room rates were very economical and I could not find another for similar rates around the same area, and am very satisfied with the service and quality offered.

The room also had Free WiFi which was a bonus. Allowed us to upload photos to FaceBook, and connect with friends from home. (Which we take as a given in Australia, but other hotels I've stayed in Sri Lanka did not offer the same and was an additional charge to get WiFi, so definitely a bonus!)

My wife loved the bathroom, especially the His and Hers Sinks and huge shower areas.

Thank you Clove Villa for an awesome experience.

We would definitely come back next time.

This boutique hotel is really like staying at a particularly glamorous friend's house! The décor is beautiful both in the communal areas and the bedroom - the bathroom was particularly lovely.

Given its size, I wasn't expecting too much from the food but it was really lovely and nicely presented. We hadn't noticed that they aren't licensed to serve alcohol but on noticing our disappointment, they offered to send a tuk tuk to the market for beer for us, which was very much appreciated. I would agree with another review that the dining area lacks atmosphere and maybe some music might have helped.

We were only there very briefly (arriving just before dinner and leaving after breakfast) but I felt it was the kind of place you could have easily spent a few days while exploring the area.

After a long drive we arrived in Kandy and at Clove Villa to be greeted by Charlie and some of the best service ever.
Our room (Ebony and Ivory) was fantastic and even with a bed for our 4 year old had enough room to not feel crowded, the furnishings were lux, without being over the top.
The food was fantastic with Charlie offering recommendations and going beyond to ensure we had fantastic food and that our boy enjoyed every meal.
A high-light was watching our boy feed the fish with Charlie!

An amazing special place with great people making our stay in Kandy, relaxing and memorable.

Room Tip: All rooms have a colour theme but all excellent

We stayed 8 nights and every need was catered for. I was evebn advised that I didn't have wine or beer with me that meant I had forgotten to get essentials. The recommended taxis and tuc drivers were excellent as was the food -both breakfast and Dinner-so much so my wife has copies of the major recipes on offer. Charlie an Nawa our main contacts were magnificent.

We arrived in the hotel and was greeted with a welcome juice and a refreshing cold towel. The room that we stayed in, Raspberry Dream was exactly like its name, it was a dream. The decor was nicely done and you have all the basic amenities that you need. We even have an awesome balcony overlooking the forest and the pool. The pool was under construction when we came but good thing about this was we were able to use the pool of the next door hotel. Personnel were really helpful and they provide personalized service that I don't think you could get in a hotel. We would recommend this villa to our family and friends.

Room Tip: Raspberry dream, huge room, huge bathroom and has balcony.

We stayed here on our first anniversary in Feb 2013. My spouse booked the room 'Ebony & Ivory' but when we reached, we found it was occupied and they promised 'Raspberry Dream' was as good as 'Ebony & Ivory', if not better. The room was beautifully done in shades of raspberry, not over the top but tasteful elegant decor. I was delighted!

Staff was ever smiling and food was good.

Highly recommend staying here! Beautiful rooms, courteous staff & personalized service. We had a truly memorable and very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Stay in Raspberry Dream.
