Very beautiful hotel which is situated middle of the jungle and next to Ma Oya. Excellent service and nice swimming pool to enjoy. We visited this wonderful place after our visit of Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawela, only about 6 km from Pinnawala.

We've had several visits to Sri Lanka before and have stayed at many different places, but nowhere did we experience rural Sri Lanka as we did at the Tulip of Ceylon. It's situated near the town of Mawanella, which is an easy drive from Kandy, so the Tulip is quite central for touring, albeit located some distance from the main... More

The Tulip of Ceylon is one of those great hidden getaways you hardly find anymore. When we went, we were the only guests there and treated with the utmost courtesy. The rooms are simple but all the required basics are available. The food menu is also simple but the cook is willing to try his hand at anything you may... More

We travelled around Sri Lanka for two weeks and this was the best place we stayed at by far. The village walk was the highlight of our holiday. Cannot recommend this place enough.

Tulip of Ceylon was just a lovely place to stay! The owner and all the local staff were so kind and welcoming in a very relaxed and unobtrusive way. They went out of their way to arrange transport and trips according to requirements. Set in the heart of the Jungle the lodge was amazingly peaceful - the only thing to... More

A quiet place in lovely surroundings - but BEWARE - if you don't have your own transport it costs a fortune to get around. THIS PLACE IS REMOTE. We were charged RS6000 (Yes $60!) for a trip to Kandy (90mins to 2 hrs to the town centre). The nearest town is also quite far away so you feel kind of... More

We went to Sri Lanka to escape Christmas / New Year in the UK and to visit our daughter who is in SL as a volunteer. After a delayed arrival in Negombo we headed off to the Tulip, which we had booked by email. We were absolutely stunned by the location, the welcome and the cooking. The lodges, all near... More

We have just returned from a six night stay at the Tulip of Ceylon which was organised by a friend and travelling companion. Before leaving for Sri Lanka I searched for reviews of the Tulip on the web which without exception proved to be full of praise - being a sceptic, that worried me! The truth is that they were...
