I spent a week at Jungle Tide walking in the surrounding tea estate but not venturing any further. Highlights were early morning tea and breakfast on the verandah, watching birds in the late afternoon. A mongoose appeared most early mornings. The Sri Lankan food was good and there was plenty of it. Martin and Rani, the hosts, gave a warm... More

We and a group of 6 friends used Jungle Tide as a base for our first visit to Sri Lanka. The property is beautifully situated with fantastic views and extremely comfortable. The welcome from the housekeepers, Martin and Rani, was exceptionally warm. Their objective is to make your stay as comfortable as possible and they succeeded beyond expectation. We recommend...

Beautiful Property in the middle of a tea estate. The road is slightly rough through the tea estate however was worth it. The property has amazing views on all sides. The managers Martin and Rani were really warm and prepared really awesome food for us. Will definitely return on my next trip to Kandy.

Yes, the journey up the poor road is a challenge but what greets you on arrival makes it truly worthwhile. Brilliant accommodation that wouldn't be out of place in a major western city, awesome food and the Managers, Martin and Rani's hospitality can not be faulted. We spent 5 days at Jungletide, lots to do in Kandy so we went... More

We were 3 families with small and grown up kids. We are in love with this place. its in top of a mountain. so the weather changes often making the stay cozy. the distance to the town discouraged us going to town often but this was a blessing as we relaxed well and enjoyed the beauty of the place.

We are probably unusual examples of travellers staying at Jungle Tide as we are seasoned Sri Lanka holidaymakers, having been on tour several times with friends and family and in fact in my case having been born and raised in the country. We are familiar with the fantastic variety of experiences the country offers and particularly love the Hill Country.... More

Thank you so much for this very thoughtful and detailed review. You did raise a couple of concerns which we would like to respond to. We fully agree that the showers do let the place down a bit and our next priority is to improve these, including investigating how we can get better water pressure. We also agree that Martin...

We have chosen Jungle Tide as our first stop in Sri Lanka. From the Colombo airport to Kandy it takes some time to get there and if you chose this location as a place to stay, you have to count with another extra time. This place is very up to hill in the middle of the jungle far away from... More

Dear Alena We were a little disappointed that you only felt able to give Jungle Tide an "average" review since most of your concerns seemed to relate to the difficult road, which we had clearly explained to you in advance as we do to all our guests, and of course is out of our control. We take your point about... More
