Quiet, fantastic surrounding and view, extremely nice hosts, super breakfast (mixture from East and West), very nice spacey room, tasteful furnitured, great bathroom... So if you are alone or a couple, looking for a good place to stay in Kandy, a bit outside the centre ( therefore quiet), which is well in reach with a tuktuk - then I recommend... More

Baramba was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Not far from kandy but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the hill tops. Barbara and her husband are most humble and discreet hosts you could dream to have. They are always so sweet and so helpful. The house is gorgeous and clean. The view is just... More

We spent three nights with Barbara and Loku and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is large and elegant with lovely grounds and a swimming pool. Each of the three large bedrooms is beautifully furnished and has a huge bathroom. There is a guest lounge, dining area and a kitchen where you can make tea or coffee. Every morning we... More

Baramba House is located high above Kandy town center. It´s easy to take the bus to get to town or take a Tuktuk (250-300 Rupie). Barbara and her crew are super helpful, the breakfast is breathtaking and extremely delicious. Baramba House isn`t the chepeast place to stay, but you get your money's worth. The rooms are superb, the bathroom is... More

Wonderful peaceful retreat away from the relative hustle and bustle of Kandy. Lovely garden with nice bird life, welcoming and attentive hosts, nice pool with views. The breakfasts were magnificent. The rooms spotless and well appointed. There was no AC in the rooms but this was not required when we were there. The dinners were too pricey for us at... More

The rooms, breakfast and dinner were amazing and we would love to come back to this dream villa one day. Many thanks to both of you! Our stay was simply fantastic and we very much enjoyed our time in Kandy and... More

As all reviews say, this is an exceptional place. Up a challenging country road, the setting is spectacular and just a little out of Kandy (we had a driver). The architecture is elegant but simple, the room and living space comfortable, the grounds beautiful, and the food all fresh, homemade, and delicious. Barbara is welcoming, helpful, and lovely. Found out... More

Baramba House was everything I hoped it would be - superb location away from noise but not so far away from town with breathtaking scenery set on a beautifully designed property that encourages relaxation. Barbara and Loku are fantastic hosts who go above and beyond in their hospitality and I cannot thank them enough for the experience I had. The... More

Our first visit to Sri Lanka began with three days at Baramba house. This was the oerfect introduction to the country as we found everything to be first class, the decor, the views, pool,gardens and Barbara's cooking. i would absolutely recommend a stay here when visiiting Kandy.There was not a thing not to like!

We stayed at Baramba House for 3 nights in February and had a wonderful time. The house and gardens are beautiful, with amazing views towards the Mahawelli river. The owner, Barbara, is a charming lady, and as we had arranged in advanced to have dinner each evening, we had the pleasure of dining on the upstairs veranda outside Barbara's beautiful... More
