Albatross Boutique Villa is located on a hill overlooking the Victoria Golf Links and the Victoria Dam and gives lush greenery and breath taking views of the mountain range. It is owned by one of the leading tea export firms in Sri Lanka - Ranfer Group. Even though the Villa is solidly built about 15 years ago, it is maintained absolutely in mint condition with a good collection of antiques -very rare photographs,furniture,cutlery etc, which we really loved to see.They also have a superb collection of Books and Film DVDs for those who love reading and watching films. We stayed in the Royal Albatross Suite which is spacious and equipped with an outdoor Jacuzzi and all necessary amenities are available in the room. By relaxing in the balcony we could enjoy beautiful scenery of night lights of the Dam in the night and sun rise in the morning. This is very quiet and calm place to relax and rejuvenate after busy life in the city-Ideal place for a relaxing holiday. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help.Hotel is strictly following Covid-19 guidelines by checking body temperature,sanitisation and wearing of face masks. Food is super delicious and a very good customer service at this difficult period. Our thanks to Thilak,Prabath ,Nishan and all others in the team for their excellent support in all aspects which we really appreciate and commend them. We want to visit again definitely in near future to this small paradise to enjoy another memorable holiday.
