Villa Aqua Dunhinda pictures and description

Set in an excellent vantage point atop the hills, Villa Aqua Dunhinda offers incredible vistas like no other. Enjoy breathtaking views over the dense Kothmale Forest, winding Mahaweli River and rolling valleys from the indoor and outdoor spaces within the compound. This hilltop home embraces tropical living by bringing the outdoor elements in; apricot-coloured rays and the cool mountain breezes flow in easily to create interiors that are bright and airy.

Customer reviews

10/10 (Average rating based on 3 reviews)

"Gorgeous" this is the first word that I can start with. The place, the environment, the staff and the accommodation was really something exceptional. But I have one suggestion, please provide the villa with coffee machine, otherwise there is nothing to say except wonderful experience and stay. Finally, thank you for all your dedicated work. Our first visit to Srilanka with good impression has been made because of you. :)

It's hard to pick a favorite thing about this place. The setting is incredible, with views of mountains and roaring river, up an isolated hill road far enough away from anybody else up, yet a close-enough walk or ride away. Birdsong greets you while being served coffee or tea on the veranda (and there are soaring eagles!) -- and you may need a light jacket, because it's refreshingly cool. When the doors all around are opened, the breeze flows through the house, giving it life. It's a delightful walk down a garden slope, through the tea plants and spices like cinnamon and fruit trees like avocado and jackfruit, to reach the river out front, as well as the fresh bubbling spring on the property out back. The staff, manager Sujit and his Guy Friday, make sure you always have what you need, yet always stay out of the way. Sujit also organizes day-tours like to the 3 temples around Kandy (totally worth seeing). It's also about 40 mins to get back to Kandy for a half-day (all that's needed). And he'll also take you the vegetable market and direct the cook to make your choices, Sri Lankan-style, for dinner: kale, beets, snake gourd, and all kinds of leaves for coconut salad. This is amazing for vegetarians - so rare to find this kind of opportunity while traveling. This was the best place I stayed in Sri Lanka -- really a treat!

This is a fantastic place! It's the Sri Lankan home you wish you had, complete with a staff. The house is beautiful, the hilltop setting overlooking the river is stunning, and the meals are delicious. It's the perfect spot for reading, relaxing, running or walking, listening to the birds and just enjoying the scenery. It's also a great spot from which to explore Kandy and the surrounding areas, for half or whole day trips. The property is even more beautiful than the photos, and the only downside is you won't want to leave. It is a really special place that made me feel I was having a genuine Sri Lankan experience, rather than a touristy one. And Prashan is super responsive, friendly and professional. I really enjoyed my stay here and am recommending it to friends and colleagues who are contemplating trips to Sri Lanka.
