We stayed two nights, and wished we could have stayed much longer. Can only reiterate the comments of other reviewers. Baramba is as good as it gets. Barbara has done a wonderful job, she even booked and collected our train tickets before our arrival. We will certainly return next time we are in Sri Lanka, and have started recommending this...

Eleven nights in Baramba while visiting friends in Kandy. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in during our various travels. A beautifully designed house, in a lovely garden with a swimming pool, on a hillside on the outskirts of Kandy overlooking the river and with views to the surrounding hills. The house has been equipped... More

Very clean, beautiful garden, very friendly owners and awesome breakfast. The only negative would be the location. It is pretty far up in the hills. But they can (and will) arrange you a tuk tuk driver who knows the streets.

In general, the property is located not too far away from the city but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. Because it is perched on a hill overlooking Kandy, getting there can be quite a task for the driver because of the narrow winding roads. You will surely need to arrange a transport for getting in or out... More

Thank you to Barbara for sharing your absolutely stunning home with us. Everything said on other reviews and more! Fantastic food, delicious breakfasts and dinners; unbelievable setting - the house, the location, the design - in a nutshell - stunning! Barbara couldn't have been more welcoming - loved the pic previously posted of the JR pool guard. Couldn't recommend highly... More

We had a wonderful stay and were welcomed by Barbara who went out of her way to make us feel at home. The accommodation, pool and grounds are very well maintained and beautiful. Barbara's food is also very good, both breakfast and dinner with everything home made.

Everything has already been said about Baramba. Barbara offers you a nice welcome, makes everything needed to make you feel at home in this great house. It is by far the greatest experience we had in Sri Lanka!
