We spent three nights here and are returning for three more. It is away from Kandy but we had stayed in town so had no need to return. The welcome was warm and other guests friendly and interesting. The pool is giant for such a place and well kept. The meals were all wonderful. Loved the Sri Lankan breakfasts.

Jerry and Sally just let us in to their life, fed us brilliantly, put up with our chaos and told us wonderful nightfull tales of their past. then to top it they gave an... More

My family and I arrived at Jungle Tide after a very long winding journey from Ella, it just took my breath away, the air so pure, clear high in the hills, mountains and jungle high above the bustling city of Kandy. Surrounded by nature, so green and lush, the expanse of sky, the mountains, so calm, peaceful and alive, blessed... More

I stayed at JT for 10 days in Dec. I was helping Sally and Jerry with various tasks on the property and found them to be wonderful hosts along with their 2 local staff Martin and his wife. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the meals were outstanding and at night all the guests got together and plays games or cards.... More

Jungle Tide guesthouse provided me with a great room with incredibly comfy beds, spotlessly clean and roomy, as well as being well ventilated with the large french doors, making it a great nights sleep. This made it ideal for the next day to explore the tamed jungle area in their land, go on treks to see some fantastic views and... More

It is a long ride to get to jungle tide but the place is your reward. The nature is beautiful and it is extremily quiet. The rooms are comfortable with a exceptional view. I enjoyed the architecture of the house (really high ceiling). Sally and Jerry are extremely friendly. Dont hesitate to ask Sally about birds and the wildlife, you... More

I would say that description of the hotel matches the reality in 50%. The hotel is located in a very beautiful place in the middle of jungles with birds, river and breathtaking view. The air is fresh, the breakfast is included in the room price, it is tasty and filling. However there are much more disadvantages. 1) there is no... More

We are pleased you liked at least some things about Jungle Tide but from what you say it is clear that you are not interested in the kind of things we offer - a peaceful place in the country away from the crowds of Kandy - and perhaps you should have stayed in one of the bigger hotels in town....

The property consists of 3 guest rooms with a 4th aimed towards back-packers under construction.Rooms are en-suite and open out onto a wooden deck which has chairs to relax in. The rooms are very clean.

Away from the bustle of Kandy City, Jungle Tide offers a welcome retreat after hot, dusty and crowded sight seeing. Once there stay a few days to relax and appreciate the beautiful natural environment and Rani's marvellous cooking. All rooms offer equally good facilities and views. It is easy to find you way walking around the tea plantation and Martin... More

After many years of travelling in Sri Lanka the Jungle Tide stands out as one of the nicest. A beautiful retreat set in wonderful peaceful setting about 20 minutes drive above Kandy. Although the road is a little bumpy it is well worth the trip. The house is clean with good sized rooms and excellent food in a family atmosphere.... More

Thank you for this lovely review. We were particlarly pleased that you liked having the use of the large kitchen which we have always seen as an important part of JT, for people to make drinks, snacks and appease their kids! All best wishes Jerry and Sally More
