An extra-ordinary place in the hills outside Kandy (25 mins away). This is a place for the gastro explorer! Its not fancy but it is stunning and the food is some of the best you will taste in Sri Lanka. What you lack in traditional luxury you get bags of space and peace in return. Uniquely designed rooms with lovely... More

We stayed two nights in the 'mountain rooms' which is on the top of the hill approx 5 min walk from the reception on a steep hillside. Rooms are very basic and we had shared bathroom. My parent occupied the other room so we shared with them but we had not been informed about the shared bathroom which I don't... More

The Samadhi Centre is in a truly special location.. We arrived at night so we didn't experience the breathtaking views until we woke up in the morning. The food/service/staff were all amazing and I can't think of one bad thing about our stay. Will most definitely return.

We’ve been driving for a while from Kandy, the road became smaller, and as these days have been raining a lot so the road was partially damaged with land slides. Surrounded by deep jungle we finally reached the Kandy Samadhi Center. The moment you walk in to this lodge it’s like you enter different dimension. You forget about noisy city,... More

This was a wonderful place to stay and we should have stayed longer. I wasn't sure about that going in and reading other reviews that it was the place for us. It was. Here's why... They have a web site- it does not come close to doing this joint justice. LOCATION: True that it's about 45 minutes out of Kandy,... More

I've been meaning to write a review for so since I returned from my trip in March 2014. This place is an unbelievable total chill out zone! Our room was very impressive, absolutely ginormous and with beautiful mountain views. The food was delicious and the staff were all so friendly and happy, it was easy to see they loved their...

The place is simply amazing. Location, food, people and natue are beyond any expectations. An oasis of tranquillity in the middle of the jungle. Everyone should try the outdoor bathroom! Well connected for tours and excursions. Definitely a place to come back!
