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

We travelled to Kandy after landing in Columbo and arrived hot and sweaty at Baramba House. What a beautiful oasis of calm to arrive in after a long flight and a journey by local bus (our choice to see a bit of Sri Lankan life). Barbara's house oozes peace from every brick and tile. Breakfast is a meal to be... More

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
