Actually I was traveling with my office colleagues and there were about 40 of us. We were traveling from Colombo and when we reached the location, it was around 4.30 pm in evening. We have to turn from Peradeniya and the journey that took us to Tree-of-Life surrounded by paddy fields, rubber estates and tea estates was awesome. It was... More

Although other reviews are poor, I as well as the group felt that this hotel was a gem. Although it's quite a trek from the entrance to the rooms, the set up was quite idyllic. We were skewed in that we stayed over Christmas, so the spread at. Dinner was exuberant. The swimming pool was nice too.

We spent two nights at "Tree of Life" and I must stay we had superb time. Why superb? friendly staff, super service (best I have seen anywhere), a perfect hideout from busy city life where you get to enjoy 65 acres of a small forest perfect for bird watching, tasty food, a good pool and the best out of the...

We stayed one day, FB and found almost everything very satisfying. It place was nicely maintained and clean, service was good. Food although not much of a choice was tasty. Only downside was that the restaurant looked a bit tired. Will definitely return

The place is quiet and beautifull, the food is ok and the personnal is ok. But the rooms (biiiggg rooms; two floors!) needs a little refresh. Just sone painting and exchange one or two furnitures. But we really enjoy our stay here. And it's a little bit hard to find it.

I want to go back! Traveled here with 13 other friends on a yoga trip. Everyone was extremely impressed with the rooms and grounds. I stayed in one of the villas-wow!!! Also, the Ayurveda spa was incredible. Next time, I'd like to stay longer and enjoy the grounds more.

I must say that the location with the garden is nice. Nuff said! This was the worst hotel we stayed in when we were in Sri Lanka. Rooms does not hold any acceptable level of standard. Old and not maintained, not even painted to look good! The service is joke. We ordered a Cheeseburger to the room, got a cheeseburger... More

Good place to stay when visiting Kandy. Away from the city but provides for some relaxing family time. Food and service was very good. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of grounds to walk around and can drive all the way up close to the rooms, will definitely reconsider staying here on our next trip. Wish we had more time... More
