Overview

Located in northern Kandy right by the shores of the Mahaweli River, Clove Villa is an elegant choice of accommodation for those wanting to explore everything Kandy has to offer. Stylish and modern throughout, this well-priced boutique villa is in a predominantly residential area, yet it’s a mere 10 minute drive from the city centre. The property is handsomely decorated and well-presented throughout, with neatly manicured lawns and trees laden with fruit adding to its character.

The accommodation comprises seven guest rooms set across three floors. All rooms are tastefully decorated with warm, subdued colours and are beautifully appointed. They’re individually decorated and have their own distinctive theming and style. In each bedroom there are one or two mahogany beds with luxurious cotton-rich linen, a television, air conditioning, a ceiling fan and an en-suite bathroom. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, as well as a selection of ‘Dilmah’ teas to try out. Two of the rooms are classed as ‘deluxe’ and the remaining five are classed as ‘superior’.

Clove Villa’s chefs serve a delicious array of Sri Lankan and international cuisine, taking care to ensure all food is freshly prepared using local ingredients. Those who want an extra special dining experience can opt for a candlelit dinner for two out on the pool deck, or a customised breakfast or BBQ dinner.

The villa boasts great facilities including an indoor pool table, a library and an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by gardens. There’s also a large selection of board games and a well-stocked DVD library; DVD players can be delivered to private rooms on request.

Kandy is Sri Lanka’s second largest city and one of its oldest, and there’s plenty to discover. Perhaps the city’s most well-known attraction is the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, a majestic temple complex regarded as one of Buddhism’s most important shrines. In fact, it’s a major site of pilgrimage and worship, with Buddhists frequently travelling here from nearby and afar. Another top attraction is the Royal Botanical Gardens at Peradeniya. These are the country’s largest botanical gardens providing home to over 4,000 plant species, including a large number of orchids. Note also that the city comes alive in July and August when the Kandy ‘Esala Perehera’ (also known as ‘The Festival of the Tooth’) is celebrated. This grand and lively festival is known for its traditional procession and many elaborate costumes.

While there are no child-oriented facilities or designated babysitting services, children of all ages are warmly welcome at Clove Villa, and the on-site facilities and nearby activities will keep family members of all ages well entertained.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
