We stayed here for two nights and were very happy we made the detour. We greatly enjoyed the guided hike in a group of four: rice paddies, some small tea plants, little villages, narrow trails, up and down, and last but not least a lovely waterfall with a perfect (swimming) pool. The food was good as well and the breakfast and view fabulous. We further appreciated the laundry service and the transfer arranged by Michael to our next destination.
I can recommend this place enough!! It was so wonderful and I felt like family. I stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every second. I loved being able to talk with the staff, and Michael took us (me and other guests) to see a big parade and for a walk to a nearby weaving shop just to show us the community. They are truly wonderful and so, so helpful. The food was the best I had in Sri Lanka.
I came to this place as a tourleader, with a group of 13 people. Every single one of us was delighted by this place. Owners Tush and Michael, manager Chamdu and guide Janaka are among the friendliest people we've met on our trip through Sri Lanka. We were welcomed with coffee and tea, and got a little gift when we left. Also in between we were spoiled: the rooms were neat and tidy, Michael was very helpful (he lent me his camera since I couldn't load the battery of mine and took care of a sick girl in the group),
We loved our 3 night stay at Welikande Villas and will definitely return. The owner Michael, his wife Tush and the staff are super friendly. Thank you for your hospitality and that you let us invite our Sinhalese friends over for dinner. The room we stayed in was clean, comfortable, had a breathtaking view and a spacious bathroom. The very good breakfast was served on a terrace with again a stunning view. Delicious and plentiful dinner with good conversations with Michael and other guests.
We stayed at Welikande for 2 nights with our 6 year old daughter. Warm welcome by the manager with tea and coffee. We walked up to the hill top for a utterly stunning sunset and enjoyed the most wonderfull curry & rice for dinner with the other guests. The room is spacious, clean, beds comfy, shower steaming hot and breakfast is good and with a wonderfull view on the valley. The next day guide Nipona took us for a small waterfall tour, showed us all the eatable herbs and spices on the way and we went for a swim at one of the waterfalls, just like paradise.
Nice clean room with big bathroom. Amazing views from dusk til dawn. 2 great spots for sun set and sunrise. Hiking possibilities. Delicious dinner that is eaten with the other guests of the hotel so you will deffo meet new people
