What Past Guests Are Saying
My family are from London and we have always wanted to visit Sri Lanka. The moment we arrived at the amandari Holiday Villa we knew we had made the perfect choice for our family. The villa was furnished and equiped to an immaculate standard and the views were stupendous! The staff were very helpful and informative about local sightseeing.
The views were incredible, I had no idea that Sri Lanka was so beautiful. My children were also very happy and enjoyed the gardens and luscious surroundings as well all the fantastic activities we enjoyed in and around Kandy.
We thoroughly recommend the villa and look forward to booking again next year-we will definetly going back.
We are from Spain and didn't know what to expect, although we had high hopes in regards to our holiday in Sri Lanka. Thank you for an exceptional experience! The villa is finished to such a high standard; it was beyond anything we imagined. The staff were very helpful and polite-the food was fantastic. The views were breathtaking and our children had an incredible time in a safe environment. We enjoyed visiting Kandy and were pleasantly surprised by how close the villa was to all the local attractions. We thoroughly recommend this villa to everyone and look forward to staying again as we have already booked for next year!
Amazing place to spend an unforgettable holiday...
During the month of january we were finding a tranquil place to spend our holidays..luckily we got to know about amandari holiday villa and our decision was correct..really it was an amazing place with a calm and a quiet surrounding..the house was nicely furnished and the garden was so beautiful..house was surrounded by mountains and we enjoyed the service provided by the kind staff..we tasted delicious food and we felt like it was our own place..marvelous surrounding,fresh air and the nature made our holidays superb.we hope to visit again and again amandari..
We stayed here with another family (4 young children in total, aged 2-5 years), and had a great stay. Location just outside Kandy - near botannical gardens, and the 'right' side for Pinnewala elephant orphanage (an hour away) - with a fantastic view across the hills. House was clean, safe, and with a good garden for the kids to play in - some outside toys also available. Delicious food available, very reasonably priced. We and the kids were made to feel very welcome. Good value. Highly recommend.
An enlightening visit
I live in California and during my 3 week winter vacation, I decided to trek around asia. I stumbled upon this magnificent country through the advice of a friend. He recommended this villa to me and it did not fail to satisfy. Let me start off with the location, absolutely breathtaking. I am a huge fan of the outdoors, and the scenery from the top of the balcony is something that will forever be etched in my mind. If you are a fan of the outdoors you will immediately fall in love with this place. Located on top of a mountain range, this villa has everything to offer to anyone looking to find peace and tranquility. It is the perfect holiday retreat. You will not be intruded by anyone except nature. Our caretakers Tissa and his wife were very friendly and cooked exquisite Sri Lankan meals, and were always there to help if we needed anything. The villa has a lot of history behind it. It was very clean, and it could easily accommodate around 6-8 people. I found it very spacious and comfortable, definitely more than what I bargained for. The garden is very lush, and the view is absolutely breathtaking. There is an infinite amount of trails to hike, and you will encounter countless amounts of animals. I am very thankful to the owner of the villa, Kumari Mazza, for being very honest with me, as I found the villa to be exactly what she described it to be. I am a seasoned traveler, and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and spend their vacations in peace and harmony. This villa lives up to the term "holiday retreat."
A peaceful retreat midst the hills
Our family of 4 stayed recently at amandari Villa for 3 nights. This was our first time to Sri Lanka and having stopped at amandari Villa was the best choice. It is a rustic, simple house with very clean facilities and amazing staff.
The staff at the Villa, Tissa and his wife are really friendly and cook very tasty meals. We were vegetarians and they made sure we were very well catered for. The views from the rooms and the balcony were breathtaking and we had a very relaxing time at the villa.
- If you are commuting by car, note that the private road is under construction. As this is a quiet retreat, the villa is located in the interior suburb of Kandy.
- Would not expect a luxurious home, this is a simple house to with amazing views.
Thanks for letting us stay there! Look forward to staying again.

Response from Kumari Mazza - 01/13/2013
thank you very much for your review. We are pleased to know that you had a good stay at our villa. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by the road works. Now these are over and we have a smooth, carpeted road to the villa. We noted that in the "star" ranking you have classified our location with one star only. In this regards we would like to say that we have chosen to build the villa on that spot exactly for the location; we are sure that you have appreciated the breathtaking views and the tranquillity of Amandari yet not too far from the buzz of Kandy.
We would be delighted to welcome you again at Amandari in the future.

Amazing experience in a Hill top Villa in Kandy
I visited Sri Lanka from us alone and wanted to stay in a peaceful place in Kandy for my short vacation.
I selected amandari Holiday Villa and rented for 4 days. An amazing bungalow, nicely designed overlooking a spectacular mountain range with breathtaking , stunning view from its balcony. Absoluytely clean, plenty of space throghout the building which can accomodate easily 8 people very comfortably.
I really enjoyed my stay in this "close to the nature spot " ,where I also watched so many endemic species and migratory birds in its close vicinity, walking down the garden itself. The view from the Balcony is simply magnificiant and enormous with cloud-clothed mountain range. On a clear day an uniterrupted view you can see for about fity miles all the way to the "Adams Peak."
You will get everything one needs for self catering or you can get deliciously prepared Sri Lankan meals in a culinary sense fom Tissa the Care taker,a very friendly, nice gentleman with a "sense of humour", always ready for your help.
This is a perfect place for a family or small group who loves relaxation and enjoy your vacation in Kandy with a very moderate charges.
Surely, I will go there in my next visit to Sri Lanka and would like to recommand this nicely located , Villa to any one who loves to enjoy a peaceful vacation in a hill top Kandy.
A well hidden gem in Sri Lanka to be discovered
I have been travelling extensively throughout Sri Lanka, and always wanted to come across a place like that...During my last trip in august I was about to quit the area, quite tired of same hospitality offered and while speaking to some locals I have bern addressed to that wonderful place with spectacular views and relaxing atmosphere, the ideal getaway from modern city life. Nice, comfortable and well kept villa with nice rooms, incredible terraces, lush garden. Lovely walks around the property, friendly environment and beautiful attractions few kilometres away, the Peradeniya botanical gardens above all and of course the city of Kandy.I'd rather buy this place, but since it is not in my close future plans, I definitely recommend this place...I'll be back next year with more friends."
