The hotel was nice in terms of room size, style and the green trees all over the place. Staff were kind and cooperative The drawbacks: Some rooms had bugs and lizards, we complained and they offer to clean the room or even upgrade the rooms to better ones. The others were fine. The location is inside jungle away from centre.... More

Grounds wonderful and very well cared for. Stayed in a detached bungalow. Could have been really nice if it had been redecorated and well cleaned. Shower curtain did not fit, water all over the floor. Buffet food was left out for in my opinion too long

The Tree of Life is an amazing place with beautiful scenery, but the bungalows badly need updating. We enjoyed our experience there but will not return. The meals were also not all that good. Food put out about 2 hours before service!! Hence cold.

We were recommended to try the Hotel Tree of Life as a change from hotels in the middle of Kandy. The location virtually in the middle of a forest on high ground is excellent but the hotel is starting to look 'tired' and in need of a major refurbishment. We stayed in an individual bungalow with a balcony that overlooked... More

Select this hotel if you really wish to relax your stressful life. This is an eco-resort in an isolated forest environment. Extremely god for birds watching and spend few days in a forest environment without any city disturbance. It is not too far from Kandy city but takes about 25-30 minutes to reach the city. Nice food and helpful staff.... More

Enjoying Sri Lanka tour we spend a night in this resort. It is very well designed and grown. Relaxing greens all around. Pool side dinner and rooms are good. Decorated nicely and welcome drink was energetic. Stalf is ok. Lobby in the room give u a chance to enjoy glimpses of the jungle. Nice place to stay.

We even went for a nature walk early in the morning with one of the naturalists of the hotel. He took us to the nearby forest for some birdwatching. The rooms are... More
