This is a great base for exploring the city of Kandy but for those wanting a more peaceful place to return to in the evenings.
Bougainvillea lies in the picturesque valley at the Victoria Golf and Country Resort, surrounded by lush vegetation and water. With an astounding view to the Knuckles Mountain Range and Victoria Lake it sets the unique backdrop for a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Hidden away as the last villa on the road, the Bougainvillea Retreat provides you with a tranquil getaway in subtle luxury seldom seen or experienced in Sri Lanka. Whether you want to relax by the pool, take a walk in the beautiful surroundings, improve your golf skills or simply draw back from the world for a little while, this is the place to do it.
The Tuscan style villa was created in 2002 and has been built tucked into the surrounding landscape. There is a lovely infinity pool and because it is small it feels more like a home than a hotel. The rooms are all very comfortable and spacious and the atmosphere is very relaxed. (NB: Please be aware that they have a dog and four cats at the Retreat. They are all very docile and friendly and will keep to themselves unless you initiate the contact, but they thoroughly enjoy being spoilt if you do!).
The house is fully staffed with English speaking staff and they are more than happy to arrange a round of golf or a tour if you need any further assistance. There is also a spa, library, cinema room, billiards room, wifi and a small restaurant serving homemade bread and locally grown produce and delicious local specialities.
You will have a pretty busy schedule with sightseeing whilst here but if you want you can squeeze in golf, spa treatments, mountain biking and all other manner of activities available in the area.
