A calm, quiet and comfortable room surrounded by tropical greenery. We only host guests from abroad, sorry for any inconvenience :)
“I don't really know where to start. The home is absolutely gorgeous, the view from the bedroom and balcony are beautiful. During our stay we saw wild boar, monkeys, squirrels, mongoose and so many native and exotic looking birds, all from the balcony! Chamari and Nilan are the most lovelist of couples, very respectful and extremely helpful. Couldn't thank them enough for all the support during the covid-9 lockdown, they treated us like family and sorted out everything that we needed. So, of your after a perfect slice of heaven just out of the busy town centre. I definitely recommend staying here, I promise you will want to come stay again. It feels like a home and a holiday..a very fancy one.”

“This unique, amazing and most memorable of houses made my stay in Sri Lanka one of my best ever! Set in the grounds of the most picturesque Victoria Golf and Country Club on hills that overlook the stunning Lake Victoria. Wonderful ex pat hosts who really know the local culture, organise amazing activities, and also look after the guests beyond any expectations. I love activities so I am spoilt for choice with hiking, canoeing, horse-riding (the stables are 100 yards from the Aviary) bird watching and of course golf/swimming at the Club. Aviary is on the 3rd fairway and a one minute walk from stunning views of the lake where sea-planes land from Colombo and Galle (operated by Cinnamon airways if your budget allows) My budget was very happy with the Aviary! The unique local wood in every room, splendid wooden beams and a tranquil ambiance made for a wonderful stay. I usually do not opt for breakfast but with avocados and fruit abundant in this 'permaculture property' I was wise to eat in. Each bedroom/en-suite was fabulously laid out and more '4 star' than many hotels I have stayed in that claim that attention to detail. Easy to find and a property well known to local people for its exceptional hosts, The Aviary is an ideal stay which I will re-visit several times but stay longer than on this occasion. Two lovely dogs and a cat add to the feeling of total relaxation, but at the same time are out of sight from the guests. This would be my ideal yoga location which I have suggested to the hosts for my next visit.”
AMBA villa is a large villa designed by Architect Channa Daswatte, it is located in a tropical garden and has fenomenal views over the Victoria reservoir and Jungle. The Owners live upstairs in the spacious villa and rent out two individual suites.
“This place is exquisite. Words don't describe it. The layout of the villa is a wonder, the interior so in tune with its surroundings, which are themselves jaw dropping. The view is to die for. Add to that Lotte and Shadwell, who go above and beyond to ensure everything is expertly tended to. I was travelling solo, on my first trip to Sri Lanka and they took me completely under their wings and treated me as a member of their family, acting as personal tour guides from the moment I landed. AirBnB was founded for experiences like this; book in immediately.”
