We had a great introduction to Sri Lanka at Villa 49, a quiet guesthouse set in the hills near the lake in Kandy, and a 15 minute walk to the Temple of The Tooth and other attractions of central Kandy.

Our room was very spacious and comfortable, with air conditioning and a lovely new bathroom. The owner was very welcoming and forthcoming with information about her country and the area, places to stat, things to see, and was more than helpful throughout our stay. The staff were very attentive and helpful.

The dining area opens out into the garden, overlooking the valley where you can see and hear the wildlife that this country is replete with, quite a start to the day!

Recommended for your stay in Kandy!

This is a family run guest house. Wonderful rooms and very clean. The breakfast and evening meal was amazing. We felt like one of the family. There were 12 of us, so we took all the accommodation. We would definately go back to this one. Right by the lake in Kandy.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms

Shanina made us feel like family in her lovely guest house in the hills overlooking Kandy. Huge, comfortable rooms with beautiful views and sneaky monkeys that will come in if you leave a door open. Shanina's home made breakfasts and dinners were so delicious we could not be bothered to eat out. We found out too late that Shanina is happy to give Sri Lankan cooking lessons, we will take her up on it next time. It's a 15 minute walk around the lake to get to town or a short tuk tuk ride.

Extremely pleasant and peaceful place with an engaging manager and friendly staff. The pricing was very reasonable and they were willing and able to help with any questions, including finding a driver. Food was also good, so nothing whatsoever to criticise. The only thing to perhaps keep in mind is that if you have an issue with stairs this might not be your place, as there is no lift (although the ever-smiling staff may well offer to carry you!).

A wonderful stay in one of the best villas I have ever stayed. The overall experience of our stay was one I won't forget with lovely rooms, fabulous food and perfect location.Everyone at the villa was very friendly and extremely helpful. Very accessible for walking, public transport and sight seeing. Would definitely return in the future. Thanks for a very relaxing and memorable stay. Sarah and the gang

Room Tip: All rooms were lovely especially the deluxe ones with large beds. The top room also had a terrace.
