My only disappointment was that I only booked 3 nights at this beautiful Villa. I wish I had booked 1 or 2 weeks. I have traveled to Sri Lanka 6 times and this is by far my favourite place. The hospitality shown by the staff was amazing. In particular, Sanjeewa kept the Villa immaculate, the pool so clean and his service could not be faulted. The food was also so delicious - thank you to the wonderful chef. This is such a place of peace and calm, with the sound of the river, the wild life around you and the amazing Villa - all truly beautiful. I will miss this place and the superb hospitality by the Villa staff so much. Thanks to the Aqua Dunhinda team for an unforgettable experience. I will definitely come back again on my next visit to Sri Lanka
I stayed Aqua d from 28 Dec through to Jan 2 to spend my new year holiday in Sri Lanka. The way to the villa didn’t seem to be taking me to such a beautiful scenery but once I got there, I forgot my long road trip. I was treated well with a full series of nature and wild little creatures. I enjoyed every morning with different faces of mountain and clouds which were absolutely breathtaking. The staff there was super friendly but very polite and well mannered yet I felt like I was at home.
I really enjoyed spending my time at the pool. It’s not burning hot as the forest gives nice fresh air and winds. The pool is nicely set up and very clean.
The food was very sophisticated and the best dishes I had in Sri Lanka.
Recommend for a getaway and relax holiday in great nature with a homey atmosphere.
I spent three blissful days at Aqua Dunhinda, a beautifully designed modern house on a most spectacular setting overlooking a rushing river. It is truly a place of relaxation and retreat, with the sound of the river below as a balm for an anxious soul. And then there are the beautiful birds...
The villa is close enough to Kandy to make it a fine base for exploring the town and its sites (botanical garden etc) but actually from the time we arrived, we did not want to leave the place at all, but just to revel in its glory. The pool is perhaps one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, given how it overlooks the river.
The solicitous staff looked after our every need with a smile, and we feasted on delicious home-cooked meals, with the Sri Lankan cuisine based on the owners traditional family recipes.
It is an ideal house for a family or group of friends looking for a special getaway, far from the madding crowd.
We had a great family time here. The space is luxury, the view breathtaking, the pool fun and the food delicious. The staff is helpfully any time and with anything. We did some sightseeing in Kandy and white water rafting and canyon about a hour away. Highly recommended place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautifull Aqua Dunhinda Villa. The service and the scenery was nothing but perfect. We will definetely come back.
A big thank to the whole staff.
Pictures really don't do this beautiful place justice. What a spectacular home! This was the perfect end to our trip through Sri Lanka.
Prashan's mom, Sujith and his team did everything in their power to make our short stay here unforgettable and still managed to surprise us with delicious Sri Lankan food we had not tasted anywhere during our trip. The staff was always there when we needed them, with smiles and kind care. Even with Sanjeeva's unexpected absence, Sujith and his team did a perfect job in making sure everything was comfortable for us.
We will definitely be recommending Aqua Dunhinda to our friends and family and hope to come back some day.
