Living Heritage Koslanda
Bandarawela

The villas are perfectly suited to the cooler climate and combine boutique-style luxury and traditional Sri Lankan design and architecture. They hotel worked with local craftsmen and revived forgotten construction techniques to ensure that every building is authentically Sri Lankan down to the smallest detail. Colours and textures recurrent through the centuries are used throughout, and the rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques from all over the country. Each villa has a private courtyard, outdoor jacuzzi and hot water garden shower. You can swim or laze by the infinity pool or settle back on the cushions in one of the three open-sided, roofed houses, known as Ambalamas, which were the meeting place within every village in years gone by. There's also a long veranda, another aspect of traditional Sri Lankan living, ideal for relaxing, chatting, having a drink and enjoying the tastes and smells of Sri Lankan food prepared by our chef.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
