Villa Rosa has a slightly Moorish feel, with myriad tiled roofs cascading down on each other and big, fat tropical leaves climbing up to meet them. There is a sense of peace, with doorways that frame views and windows that gorge on mountain-top light.
Villa Rosa is a 10-minute taxi or trishaw ride from the centre of Kandy, which is in central Sri Lanka.
The large Deluxe Rooms have double beds, bathtubs and showers; there's also a smaller Standard Room which is ideal for solo travellers or couples on a budget.
For romantics, the Honeymoon Suite has a huge rooftop garden with alfresco tub. There are also Family Suites, each offering a room with a kingsize bed, an adjoining room with a queensize bed, and a bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
