The huge property has only a few rooms so we felt like royalty in the hotel, the gardens and the pool. Our hosts were so warm and friendly, It was actually... More

Excellent hotel, good view, nice and smiling people, quiet and relaxing, fresh fruits for breakfast from their garden, exotic views. Will definitely go back. Don't scared by the road leading to the hotel and that is also a thrill feeling.

It is 25-30 minutes from town, but what a lovely escape from the 'hustle and bustle' of Kandy! Great service, beautiful people. Thank you so much for the amazing views, charming gardens, lovely pool and breakfast. We were even upgraded as it was rather quite.
