Unfortunately, we only stayed for one night in the villa. We could have stayed forever. Staff were so nice and the breakfast fast great. The view from the property was super great and so was the room. A perfect stay in a perfect place.

The staff is outstanding, the best of any of the numerous hotels we stayed in on our trip in India and Sri Lanka. The food is also excellent.

This is a perfect, private house in the foothills of Kandy. Far enough away from the city center for quietness and relaxation yet still within walking distance. Staff are friendly and always smiling. Will definitely be back one day.

Overjealous staff member but lovely settings, view stunning. No pool.”
The room is large, with upstairs as your living room. It is clean and neat, and dimly lit, style of the room isn't bad. Some observations in Sri Lanka in general. (1) Food served is never hot, (2), food is generally oversalted; (3) Sri Lanka isn't a culinary desitination and (4) Sri Lanka is expensive for what you would get compared to SE Asia. We arrived at VS late and had dinner at hotel, we had to order during check in, and not when we were seated, so when we sat down for dinner it was served immediately - therefore good / bad depending on your disposition, it wasn't piping hot. Even before dessert was served, we were asked what we wanted for breakfast. "Because we need time to cook it". So guess what! Breakfast wasn't hot either. I assume it just sits there. The SL breakfast is a roti in potato, I had the English breakfast. Not bad. Happened almost on a daily basis till the last day when the not so well spoken English waiter, actually took the order when we were seated. Horray!!

WONDERFUL”
Spent two nights in this wonderful place. The villas location is on the mountains with breathtaking view. The room is specious and very clean with a huge balcony where you can have a cup of coffee while watching the mountains stunning sunset or sunrise. Breakfast was great. Staff are wonderful. I will definitely stay here on my next visit to Kandy.

Beautiful villa”
It's abit far up on the hill..but no problem at all since we have a driver with us. Nice environment and comfortable and spacious deluxe villa. Breakfast was ok..standard English breakfast and not much variety..unlike all other places that we have stayed that offered variety and tasty local breakfast.

The hotel is far from the city, on a hilltop, far from the crowd and noise. The view from our room was spectacular. Though it was a challenge to find the hotel as we arrived in the evening and the hotel telephone number was not working. Very clean. The staffs are very goo and had prepared really good food including breakfast. Well-recommended if you need serene environment far from the city.

Excellent place”
We spent two nights here in the grand delux room and it is exactly what you need after the crazy streets of kandy. The staff here are fantastic and the manager Dinuk is so helpful in arranging onwards travel. We ate here both here nights and were not disappointed with the Sri Lankan curries and rice. Would definitely recommend this place and it's facilities and location overlooking the mountains.

Relaxing villa above crazy Kandy”
The deluxe room was beautiful with a terrace looking down the green hills to Kandy it was quiet and peaceful. Small toiletries provided and a hairdryer, this enormous room with en-suite shower room was well-appointed with a supersize bed. Staff were delightful and dinner well presented and tasty. Generous breakfast too. Would stay there again.

Besides that it was slightly hard to reach this place on the map. The Villa truly satisfy me in every other way. The staff was helpful, friendly and willing to engage in conversations. The room was huge, bed was comfy, and things were kept clean and neat. Nearby you can explore on foot for a little walk around the neighborhood, everyone was friendly and they can speak english! The breakfast is amazing. Love the home-made soft bread! and the Dinner, was spectacular and romantic. Villa is one of the cheapest and no doubt about staying again!

Perfection!”
The villa is tucked away in the dense forest above Kandy but still only 10mins away from the city center. The 'Peacock' room was very spacious, tastefully decorated and had a large verandah overlooking the picture perfect valley below. There was also a WIFI router inside the room which made the connection very fast. The food and beverage on offer is plentiful, affordable and top quality...do not pass on a candlelit rice & curry dinner. Breakfast was freshly made at time of order and enough to keep you going well into the afternoon. The property is beautifully landscaped with plenty of flora/flauna and this really adds to the tropical mountain feel. Shenandoah's staff went beyond our expectations for service, they were fantastic. Our host Dinuk was our driver and guide for 3 days as we toured Kandy and surrounds. This experience really made the trip for us as we were able to avoid many over crowded attractions and see the quieter side. I highly recommend booking your tours directly thru Shenandoah. Our experience was brilliant and I highly recommend.

I can sit there the whole day”
Tuck away in hills, it is quiet and peaceful, although you will hear the prayer from the mosque. Room is nice and large. Suggestions - 1. the sofa and TV position is awkward for watching. 2. There is no wardrobe space. 3. The shower is located at the wrong location, so the bathroom is wet all the time. There is spider crawling and some dead bugs. Although it is expected to see insects, I think it is still possible to clean them away. The owner and staffs are very nice and accommodating. It is so nice to sit out at the patio gazing and doing nothing. I would love to do it again.

Number one choice!”
The room service, the transportation/day trips, the view
We had the best time at Villa Shenendoah. I recommend booking the "villa" room type. Then you have a spacious stand alone villa, AC, private terrace with incredible views. We felt like we were the only guests at the hotel. All meals were fantastic and served directly on our terrace by super friendly service minded staff. We travelled with a small baby and the place is definitely family friendly. We made a lot of good trips to nearby places, organised by the hotel: Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya. Note that the hotel is 20 minutes away from Kandy by car/tuk-tuk. There is no alcohol on the menu, but you could order it any ways!

Heaven”
The road to this property make you anxious, nervous but once youre there, youre in complete relief. The view from our bungalow was just amazing overlooking hills, greenery with a very very fresh air after a day visit to exhaust saturated Kandy. We had dinner at this property which was excellent while you hardly find good places to eat in central Kandy.The staff was very friendly make your stay enjoyful. Beware of gekkos, palm sized spiders when you come accross in the room but theyre absolutely harmless if we humans dont trespass their territory while it origianally belongs to them.
