Our 2 day stay at Baramba House was the nicest that we had including a very expensive five star property. Barbara, the owner, was charming, setting and house were beautiful and food was great. Only regret was that we could not take this place with us on the rest of the stay in Sri Lanka, Highly recommended

We had the best breakfast here during our two weeks' trip in Sri Lanka, actually perhaps the best of any B&Bs I've stayed all over the world. The house is tastefully decorated and our hosts are extremely nice. Our kids became instant friends with the two dogs and the cats. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and we also had the... More

My teenage daughter and I have just finished a trip to Sri Lanka, staying in a number of places and Baramba House was our favourite. The owners have exquisite taste and have created an elegant and comfortable tropical oasis in the hills outside Kandy. A perfect place to relax after a long journey and exploration of the area. Lovely bedroom,... More

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

Baramba House is the nicest guesthouse I have ever stayed at. Barbara, her husband, Idefix etc. are fantastic hosts. 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!

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.
