Breathtaking View, A Gem
This place is a gem, facing the beautiiful Victoria Reservoir and a golf course. However, there was no signage of the Villas outside the place. The hills are steep to go up..

Absolutely beautiful !!.. Would go again
Clean and spacious rooms, Hot Jacuzzi & Golf themed bar, Panaramic view
Absolutely beautiful spacious villa is nicely located with unique panoramic view of the Victoria reservoir and the Victoria Golfing Complex. Rooms were very clean, spacious, comfortable and has the beautiful view even from rooms. It was such a beautiful view and staffs were very friendly and they prepared so many varieties of excellent food. Played the game of Golf and relaxed at the hot Jacuzzi and they had a golf themed bar to enjoy a relaxing beer at the end of the day. Kids enjoyed the horse riding and swimming pool was children friendly and very well maintained. Luxury suites didn't stay but they were beyond anything your imagines with private Jacuzzi. I highly recommend staying here any time of the year!

A Luxury Holiday we will cherish
This Hotel is located inside the victory golf club surrounded by the most peaceful and serene settings. The food is simply star class gourmet and the staff make your stay simply unfortgettable
My husband and I are both golfers and we decided to get away from the city during the Labor Day holiday. We had heard many great thing about Albatross and we finally decided to stay there. We were simply blown away from the hotel's beauty and charm. Its located on the mountain top overlooking the golf course which make the view simply staggering. Undoubtedly one of the most picturesque sceneries I have ever seen in Sri Lanka. We enjoyed our round of golf in the mornings and then spend the evenings in the Jacuzzi that overlooked this beautiful setting. The resort had just been recently refurbished and they have added new luxury suites with their own private Jacuzzis on its own private balconies. We will definitely opt to stay in one of them during our next visit. The food was amazing and the staff excellent. Thank you Albatross for a relaxing holiday experience.

Returned for another memorable holiday
Food and staff is amazing here. The place is located inside the Victoria Golf course and the place is extremely peaceful.
This is our second time at this resort and we absolutely love the Albatross. They have recently renovated the place and has one of the best Jacuzzi's I've seen, overlooking the entire Victoria golf course, dam, and the mountain range in the backdrop. The kids have plenty of things to do in the area like horse riding, bird watching, pool table, golf range and more. We go for long walks in the evening and the child loved it. The food and the staff is easily their best attraction. The staff go out of their way to attend to your every request and its truly a home-away-from-home. They have a cozy golf theme bar and the evenings are truly romantic and magical. We look forward to coming back again soon.

Excellent family holiday
amazing view, excellent food, great staff
wonderful location overlooking the vistoria resevoir and golf course, with super staff on hand and available to cater for all your needs. The food is exceptional with the chef fully versed in most major cuisine as well as excellent sri lanka food on offer. Lots of party games and dvds's on offer if weather is not great and only 5 minutes walk to the golf course. 20 minutes drive from Kandy its the perfect location to recover from the day of sightseeing and shopping. Kudos albatross i would definitely return next year.

great views, friendly staff, ideal for golf
This small hotel is located near the top of coconut hill overlooking the Victoria Golf resort. It is ideal for golfers and offers unobstructed views over the golf course, Victoria lake and the surrounding hills. It is peaceful and quiet. The hotel staff are very friendly and enthusiastic. The rooms are fairly basic although clean and adequate.

Peaceful golfing resort hotel with great views
Beautiful view of the Victoria Golf course, lake and mountains. Attentive and enthusiastic staff. Ideal for golfers
This small split-level hotel has 5 rooms. It is more like a large villa with a living room, dining room, billards room plus small bar. All rooms are in fact almost similar, despite the price differential. This hotel is ideal for golfers but being near the top of a very steep hill, a car is needed for the short drive to the golf club. The views over the golf course, lake and surrounding mountains are breathtaking. There is a jacuzzi outside the rooms and a small swimming pool. The staff were very enthusiastic and attentive, making up for the food (we had daily breakfast and a la carte dinner) which was only so-so. Overall, I would strongly recommend this hotel for golfers and those wanting a peaceful break. I will certain make a return trip in the future.

Simply perfect Family Holiday
Excellent food, friendly staff, breathtaking view
We stay at Albatross just a few days ago during our visit to Kandy. Our whole family loved this and had a very enjoyable stay. Albatross is about 40 minutes away from Kandy town but was perfect for us as we didn't want to live in the busy cramped city. Albatross over looks the Victoria golf course and Victoria damn and the lookout is simple magical. The place is so peaceful in the evenings and the staff was excellent. It was really personalized private butler service. The rooms are large, Comfortable beds, very simple yet elegantly designed. They have a beautiful hot jacuzi with front row seats to the magical view, lovely pool, steam room and sauna.The theme bar and pool table was a perfect touch to the evening's fun. For breakfast we could request for what ever we wanted. The dinners were amazing quality fine dinning meals at a fraction of the cost at other restaurants in Sri Lanka. I strongly recommend staying here for travelers with small children, couples, honeymooners, etc.
