Villa Rosa, Kandy

Villa Rosa Kandy offers a slightly different hotel experience in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Less than ten minutes by Tuk-Tuk from the town, you are in a different world away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and life. For more than 10 years Villa Rosa has attracted solo travellers, couples of all age groups and families plus friends from all walks of life and different corners of the world.

“The villa is laid back rather than chic, comfortable rather than cool-which is all to its advantage…and it’s what delights visitors, most of them arrive here on a journey of discovery rather than tourism.

“Kandy is a bustling noisy place; a sharp contrast to the peace and tranquillity of the Villa. When you first arrive, the road is quite daunting but you soon come to realise that it forms a barrier between your sanctuary, the Villa and the rabble outside. One of the many charms of the place the resident tuk-tuk service and although geographically it may be a distance of 3 km between the Villa and downtown Kandy you can get into town anytime you like on the tuk-tuk.”
