We stayed in the Samadhi Centre during the monsoon season in July for eight nights with our two little kids. The resort is situated about 40 mins away from Kandy in the middle of jungly nature. The road to the ressort is narrow but newly made therefore easily accessible based on the driver knowing the final destination. As we booked... More

Really its about the ambience of the place and if you need to relax and just stop thinking/working etc this is the place to do it. It's close enough to Kandy to do day trips but far enough away for peace. The staff were wonderful including the wonderful greeting we had from Hannah (the dog). Yoga and massage are offered,...

Stayed in the Knuckles Pavilion, which was very spacious, tastefully furnished and comfortable. The food is excellent, varied and is authentic Sri Lankan cuisine, though only one dish was ayurvedic. Staff are helpful and attentive. The yoga and meditation pavilion has the potential to be great, though you might need to do something to ensure that the mosquitoes are kept... More

Samadhi center is a gem. It is one of a kind in Sri Lanka as the owner, waruna, takes nature and sustainability seriously. The place is not just an Eco friendly label but makes a commitment to nature, peace and relaxation. Been there 2x. Can't wait to go again.

Our stay at the Samadhi centre was one of the best of our 3 week tour of Sri Lanka. Within half an hour of being there, we decided to extend our one night stay to three. The overly spacious rooms are spread out over a hill with candle lit paths in between.The manager Jack and staff are so friendly and... More

I can only say positive things about the Kandy Samadhi Centre. The bungalows are all unique and situated in a beautiful natural surrounding. While the rooms are furnitured with antiques and offer a journey into the past, the diverse environment of trees, plants and birds presents the natural beauty of Sri Lanka. The Samadhi is a cultural and natural place... More
