“In the Eye of the Beholder”
Reviewed 28 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

I chose this B & B because of its intriguing name, good reviews and location, slightly out of the main city. Our first problem, arriving by car in the drizzle, was to find it, even with GPS, up a very steep narrow concrete road in the lea of the Udawatta Kele Sanctuary. There was no name sign outside and we tried 2 other properties before being finally directed to Beauty Hills Residence. Our next problem was parking inside the secure garage, with just enough room for 2 visitor’s cars, but the steep and narrow road made it rather tricky to get the car in with a few inches to spare. Then we had to negotiate, with our luggage, up steep, unfinished concrete steps, with no handrails, up 4 flights of stairs. But It was well worth the effort because we had 2 clean and well-appointed adjacent rooms with balconies giving spectacular views overlooking the valley below and the distant hills. Beauty Hills Residence has been built into the side of a hill, a small footprint but a tall building, as yet incomplete. There are 5 guest bedrooms here and the Residence, though unfinished, has been open for a year. There is no air conditioning but the ceiling fan was adequate, given the elevation and open sliding windows. There was free WiFi and all the usual facilities.
We did not meet the owner, although he was in residence, but the manager was very friendly and helpful. We were given an excellent breakfast in the kitchen in the morning but, since the Residence does not provide evening meals, we were directed to Bamboo Garden, down the hill towards the city for our dinner. A very happy choice.
Beauty Hills is a comfortable place to stay, even with the few minor irritants as noted, but the location and view fully justify the stay and the cost is very reasonable.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 28 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Really great place to stay. The best view we have ever seen from a hotel - outstanding for sure!
Very friendly family like always in Sri Lanka and a very good breakfast in the morning.
Great and fast internet - the best one so far on the island.
The only thing i would say wasn’t perfect was the missing air conditioning. Other than that nothing we missed.

Thanks a lot for this cool place that we could be in.

Being out of and above the noise of the city centre was wonderful, as were the varied morning views. Very friendly people, excellent breakfasts.

“Nicest hosts, stunning views!!”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Definitely worth being a little more out of town for those balcony views and home cooked Sri Lankan breakfasts! A clean and tidy room, a great shower and super kind and helpful hosts. Would come again for sure!

“Amazing views, perfect hosts.”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed as a group of 7 for 2 nights. We had 3 rooms all next to each other. 2 of the rooms had a huge shared balcony where we watched the amazing sunrise from. Rooms are spacious and modern. It is up a steep hill but the hosts can arrange tuk tuk into town which only takes 5-10 mins. Steep hill is worth it for the views. Our hosts were very hard to leave and did everything they could for us. They cooked us a yummy continental and local breakfast.
