“Five star service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights during our 2.5 week trip to Sri Lanka and would highly recommend staying here. Ranga, the guest house manager, was most welcoming, helpful, polite and accommodating - this made our short stay particularly special. Ranga and the housekeeper cooked us a wonderful traditional Sri Lankan dinner, with fresh ingredients of our choice. Absolutely delicious! He arranged train tickets in advance for us and even met us at the Botantical Gardens (worth the visit) with our bags so that we could make best use of the morning, and took us to the train station as his preferred drivers were unavailable. A comfortable, unfussy, clean room with an excellent hot shower. A great place to stay, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy, yet close to amenities. A five star service!

Room Tip: We stayed in the spacious family room which had a great bathroom.

Anna Shanthi was one of the highlights of our stay in Sri Lanka. Ranga went out of his way to help us arrange day trips and insisted on personally checking the vehicles before we went and getting us a fair price. The villa is clean and tucked away on a quiet neighborhood street just a few minutes walk from Kandy lake. The food was also delicious. Overall, it was the best combination of a homestay and a hotel; we really felt at home there and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Hi,

during our tour through the wonderful island of Sri Lanka we also went to well-known Kandy. As it was high season during those days, getting a proper hotel seemed to be a difficult task. Luckily we found the Anna Shanthi Villa that had one free double-room.
The hotel is small but absolutely nice: well arranged and clean rooms, top service, fresh and home-made food at sound prices and a superb location (close to the city center but within a quiet and nice neighborhood).

All in all, without any concerns I/ we recommend this place to anybody that is searching for comfortable place to stay in Kandy for a couple of days.

@Anna Shanthi Villa: Thanks againg for the delight stay at your place. All the best.

Alex and Dania
