Pleasant stay and friendly staff
Athulya Villas is a quaint little walauwa in Kadugannawa (about 45 mins from Kandy).
It's got a lovely swimming pool, and while the rooms are a bit small they've got jacuzzis to make up for it (besides, you don't spend too much time in the room. It's nicer to sit outside and soak up your surroundings - lots of great flora and birdlife).
The staff was very attentive and polite. Particularly, the manager who would go out of his way to make our stay all the more comfortable. The food is great too. There's not much to choose from, it's mostly local fare but cooked well and tastes delicious.
As mentioned by the other reviewers locating the Athulya Villas is a bit difficult to find, but to us (an adventurous duo) we enjoyed trying to locate it (and they are on Google Maps so that makes it pretty easy).
I think the manager, an elderly Sri Lankan gentleman who previously worked at the Tourist Board, should get a special mention. He was very courteous, attentive and overall lovely to chat with.
