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

Baramba is run by Barbara and her husband. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and has a great view. Barbara is a lovely lady and is the perfect hostess. Breakfast's are superb and are enough until dinner time. Barbara does not do evening meals so expect to go to Kandy for these by tri-shaw. The property can be tricky to... More

This place was one of the highlights of our trip. The house is simply stunning, set in gorgeous landscaped gardens (with pool) with stunning views over the Mahaweli River. It’s about a 5-10min tuktuk ride into Kandy town but nice to be away from the hustle and bustle. It’s also a short walk to the botanical gardens. Barbara and her... More

Although this is listed as a bed/breakfast accommodation or specialty housing, it really doesn't fall into that category. It was more like renting your own house up in the hills of Kandy. A definite 5 star accommodation away from the noise of Kandy, Barbara and her partner have done a magnificent job here. The owners live on the top level... More

Not a B&B or a Guest House but a real home from home. So relaxing and Barbara serves such wonderful breakfasts. Try her food at dinner it really is wonderful. We stayed 3 nights which for us was just enough time to see the sights we wanted to. I found the location to be a plus as I liked the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at baramba house for 4 nights and loved Barbara's breakfasts, the way she arranged a driver with ease and the relaxing lounge and spacious bathroom. The grounds are simply beautiful and the view unbeatable. We started our trip here and found it very relaxing, even having coconuts from the garden by the pool. It... More

This place is wonderful. Faultless really. The rooms are stylishly designed, the atmosphere intimate, the hosts flawlessly kind and hospitable (while not being invasive), the cooking divine. For supper Barbara can make wonderfully imaginative multi-layered dishes, using fresh local ingredients and a talent for a bit of fusion. It was amazing. Breakfast is similarly good- what can be better than... More
