The Samadhi Centre is located almost 20 kms away from the Kandy City Centre, in a place so remote that you have no mode of transport readily available. It goes without saying that if you wish to put up at this place you are either going to spend a bomb everytime you visit the city or have an experience of... More

I feel recharged and relaxed after 3 nights at Samadhi centre. The stunning grounds nestled between two streams is a delight for a photographer; foodie and yoga lover. The complex was built with love and passion.by local antiques dealer Waruna and beautiful wife who also is a great Yoga teacher. The icing on the cake was the best ever food... More

I stayed 4 nights for a yoga retreat at Kandy samadhi center and can't speak high enough of this wonderful place. If you're seeking for tranquility, fantastic yoga, sublime food and very good massages: this is it. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the environment is pure green fresh air . After yoga I enjoyed swimming in the river.... More

I spent 5 wonderful days here. Read the other reviews to see if this is the *kind* of place you like. If it is, you will find it to be a wonderful way to spend a few days in a peaceful and beautiful setting. The Sri Lankan food was fantastic. This was a great way to sample Sri Lankan food,... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at The Samadhi Center as newly weds. We now have nothing but warm memories and huge appreciation for Waruna, the kind owner who is a true visionary and artist. With a glowing smile, he made sure that we had a fantastic experience while staying at his beautiful creation. We stayed... More

This was the second time we had stayed at Samadhi. We put in 4 nights into our 3 week holiday this time, and had a lovely and restful stay in the Textile Pavillion. Samadhi is a special place, incredible scenery and nature, massive beautifully designed rooms, and food to die for. Some have said that it is the shabby side... More

Our family of three stayed at Painters Pavilion and simply loved it! The room was very specious with 2 double beds and a lot of wonderful art decoration and antique furniture. Bathroom (with shower and bath tub) was very specious and views from our entrance patio not bad either. Walking around the retreat we could notice other Sri Lankan inspired... More

I enjoyed my stay here so much. I love the remoteness, I love the serenity. The rooms are all amazing. When I booked they said they could only accommodate me if I was ok in changing rooms. So I stayed in number 12 mud house, then was upgraded to the honeymoon suite for the same price. Both rooms were amazing.... More

Dirt on bed inside adults mosquito net (looked like large animal droppings). Dead stinking decaying gecko on floor under desk in kids bedroom. Long steep uphill walk at night in the rain, some 500m to our room. Kids rooms had no mosquito nets and they were disturbed all night by large bugs and a hornet. The view was wonderful and... More

For once I felt let down by the reviews on Tripadvisor. It is definitely not a place to go to with young kids. We had a room with windows covered only by straw mats which meant it got quite cold at night. Despite asking for blankets several times, we were not given extra blankets. The breakfast was very ordinary. Also... More
