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!

Baramba House was so much more than we expected. Barbara was a perfect hostess. The house itself is beautifully designed with every detail carefully thought through. The room and bath were huge, stunning, and extremely comfortable. Barbara prepared a superb dinner for us one evening, perhaps the best meal we had in Sri Lanka. Breakfasts were enormous and wonderfully varied... More

I stayed here for three nights with my partner (now fiancee) and her parents. Excellent location with a view over the river and hills and among bats, birds and other wildlife. The hosts, Barbara and Loku and their staff including Banda (the caretaker) are kind and thoughtful people and made our stay both interesting and welcoming. The design of the... More

Baramba is a house that I wish I would have later for my retirement..:) Nice pool and room. We were the only guests that time. Barbara makes the best, healthy breakfast I must say. The house itself is far from the city center..it's up on a hill..just walk all the way down, about 5 - 10 mins to hail a... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with family and it was lovely. Great for a group of friends as there are 3 rooms available. The hosts were lovely and the situation is very picturesque. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of sights to see in Kandy and it was great to come back to Baramba and relax.

We started our round trip through Sri Lanka at Baramba House in Kandy. This was the perfect place to relax after a long flight. We stayed in the 'wooden floor room' which was just perfect. Personnaly I even like the wooden floor room better than the deluxe rooms. The place is slightly out of town (10 minutes by tuk tuk)... More

This is a beautiful modern house built with passion and love. The moment you enter the garden and you see the lovely house, you feel at ease. We had the biggest bedroom and it was clean, modern, light, bright and a very convenient bathroom was attached. Barbara makes a wonderful breakfast every morning with fresh products, home made bread and... More

Barambra house is just beautiful, it is an oasis in the Kandy hills. We did not want to leave! Thankyou Barbara and Sandun for the best hospitality and breakfasts. A stylish, beautiful home. We loved the privacy, the views, the peace and quiet, the pool and gardens. We stayed in some amazing places on our 16 day Sri Lanka trip... More
