Surrounded by the amazing views of the Victoria Lake which comes with a gorgeous sight of the Victoria Dam and the Knuckles Mountains range from another side; this gorgeous resort is a must in your places to visit in Sri Lanka list.

Victoria golf & country resort is located 13 miles away from the Kandy Railway Station. If you’re someone who loves a little bit of an adventure, you can book your train from Colombo to Kandy (which serves you with a breathtaking view along the ride) and arrange a cab to the resort.



It was a little gloomy when we arrived at this 500 acres resort property but still, we were blown away from the first sight of the location. I must say the gloominess gives the view of this property a heavenly twist.

The accommodation at Victoria comes with the views which you wish to wake up to every morning.  While Victoria Chalets comes with a modern touch added to it, the Villas comes with a cozier and a homely touch with a panoramic view.

Not to forget the activities Victoria offers; definitely, golf isn’t the only activity you can experience while you stay (I enjoyed this to the fullest and definitely one of the reasons I want to revisit this retreat to play better). Their in-house naturalist will guide you through bird watching, cycling through the property to explore the wilderness and they are planning on bringing a great experience to spend time with the fish on the ponds they have at the property and feed them which is a great experience to relax your mind from busy life.


I kept the most important topic to the last. Food! We experienced a diverse range of cuisines throughout our stay and they were kind enough to make a few customized dishes without informing prior because I got sick one afternoon. I have to admit Chefs outdid themselves throughout our stay just to spoil us with good food. Not to forget the live-action hoppers night with different varieties of hoppers. Remembering that makes me drool and want to run back there to enjoy those again.

So, there you have it! This was my experience at the gorgeous Victoria golf & country resort. As I said at the beginning this gorgeous resort is a must in your places to visit in the Sri Lanka list. If I’m repeating this, the experience I had during my stay was unforgettable and I want whoever reading this right now to make a visit just to have a perfect escape from your busy life.
