The location was really charm and quiet, however the person who was in charge of the villa didn't provide us with proper information and wanted us to bring all the dry rations in order to prepare food. (from sugar, milk, pepper salt) etc. we had to carry everything with us which was a huge hazel. later we did get to know that they had an Al la carte menu, had they informed us about this prior to our arrival we wouldn't go through the trouble of carrying them all the way to Gampola from Colombo. We observed that they were trying to run the operation with very few staff and we had to ask for certain room amenities which are normally provided at any villa/hotel free of charge. apart from the above mentioned everything else was really good especially the location wise. My suggestion is they really need to improve a lot in their service standards . Personally i believe the location and the staff has a lot of potential to make everything perfect for the guests.…
The villa was absolutely beautiful. Breathtaking views from inside and outside the villa. We loved relaxing in the amazing infinity pool, with the view and sound of the river below. The whole villa was always clean and very comfortable. The food was delicious and we have asked for many of the recipes! The chef was very accommodating with dietary requirements, and cooked many exquisite vegan and vegetarian dishes for us. We loved trying local dishes but they also provide an option for continental breakfast eg. The staff were so hospitable and really added to our trip here. We also enjoyed going on walks here, with Sanjeewa the housekeeper guiding us along the river, as well as venturing into the town of Ethgala. We will be back!
We are from Czech Republic. We are friends. This was our first visit of Srí lanka. This house is awesome. We love it!!!! Charming nature around the house, amazing staff, clean rooms, very good breakfast. We were very satisfied here and we hope to come back soon. Thanks.
We had an amazing experience. One of the most beautiful villas and locations in the world. Excellent staff. Wish we could have stayed longer. So in love with the place. The river is also amazing. So much nature!
I am writing this review in utter disappointment. I wanted to book this place for 2 nights. After discussing with the Manager , everything went well but then at the last minute when I was about to make the advance for the booking, Manager told me the owner doesn't like to accommodate us . I asked why and he said owner has his reasons. They didn't give proper reasons. It was rude and totally uncalled for.
We stayed in Aqua Dunhinda for 2 nights and it was overall amazing from the location, privacy, service and assistant given by the team. I recommend this villa for Families and honeymoon as it's has excellent views to the forest and the river.
We had a fantastic stay from the word go. The villa is surrounded by nature and the view was amazing. The staff were extremely helpful even before we got there and through out our stay. The infinity pool overlooking the Mahaweli river and the misty mountains was superb. The food was great. The rooms were clean and have some beautiful views. We even did some hiking and tea trails around the villa. Thank you for making the stay a memorable one.
After spending three weeks in Sri Lanka and reflecting on our trip, we can without hesitation say that our stay at Aqua Dunhinda was the highlight of our entire trip. The house was spectacular. It was peaceful, in a stunning setting, and it is immediately evident how much love is put into Aqua Dunhinda. The staff are incredibly warm and friendly and go out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. The food served at Aqua Dunhinda is incredible. Each day we were treated to elaborate spreads for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We will never forget our wonderful stay at Aqua Dunhinda. Thank you so much for the beautiful memories and for sharing your home with us. We honestly cannot recommend Aqua Dunhinda more. It will exceed all expectations and will surely be a highlight of your trip to Sri Lanka. …
We’re so thankful of such a nice time spent here, in a peaceful and luxurious paradise You created. The view is just breathtaking- starting with such well-cared gardens all around the place, to the spectacular wild nature you combined together. The view of the river and waterfalls- just cant take the eyes of it! The villa itself is just amazing! We had everything we needed and more. The pool area is spectacular- so private and calm as is well organised too. So many birds around, we were more than happy to see parrots playing around in the trees! Rooms are just perfect- the cleaness, spaciousness and nicely done areas to relax made us feel so comfortable. Oh the food! The food is the best so far we had in Sri Lanka! The spices and herbs straight from their garden- food so fresh! We enjoyed every single minute from we got here- the staff is so helpful and professional! Besides considering villa as a perfect peaceful place to stay and relax, maybe do yoga, meditation, I would definitely recommend it for events, even for small weddings because it has all the luxury and uniqueness needed. Thanks again for everything!…
It’s hard to find the words to describe that breath taking piece of architectural beauty. Simplicity yet elegancy. The view, the staff the exciting hiking trail! All combined to give you an amazing experience. If you choose this place you must take a hike down to the river! The owner and his lovely mother made sure they make us feel welcomed...thank you for the beautiful hospitality.
