Wow. This place is amazing. It's so peaceful. The people are lovely and very helpful with bags etc. Also the food is incredible. Proper Sri Lankan food. The river is brilliant and refreshing. Yoga and Ayurveda is great. Although the hotel is very expensive, it is worth it.

We spent two nights here when we first arrived in Sri Lanka - from the moment we arrived we wished we had booked longer! The rooms are set in a stunning area, with paths to walk to each place. Very private and relaxing. We had the honeymoon suite which had incredible views of the mountains. The food in the evening... More

A fantastic place, off the beaten track is an understatement, but well worth the journey! I'd like to say thanks to Jack who made us feel so welcome! Where else can you have fireflies in your bedroom, amazing! If in Sri Lanka you should visit, definitely go again!

Really enjoyed our stay here recently. Rooms are spacious and decorated in the style of the owner (an antique dealer in Kandy). The setting is an old tea plantation on the bank of a river and is meant for relaxation and meditation. There is no wifi available. And if you are not into climbing you may have trouble navigating the... More

One hour tuktuk from kandy, the place is located in the middle of nature, mountains and looks like a former monk retreat. There is something Holly in the air, something out of Time. We have discovered a delicious veggie food (served with wine- contrary to what the lonely planet wrote). The appartement is huge, with a 180° view on the... More

In the morning, I got up to with the beautiful calling of various birds. In the night, when I looked up, I saw a star-filled sky. My partner and I stayed 3 nights. Because all of meals were really delicious and various, we never got tired of the dishes, even though we had meals 8 times. All of the staff... More

This intriguing, original and beautiful place is a long drive from Kandy and in the middle of the jungle. It is a vertiginous, in the true sense of the term ,as each villa is perched progressively higher up the hill. So if, as ours was, your room is up top,you will have very toned legs by the end of your... More

After reading all of the rave reviews on Trip Advisor about this place, expectations were high. The architecture and settings of the centre is amazing, although far away from Kandy we didn't mind as we you are right in the heart of the greenery and nature, you could hear the river running from our bedroom. The room was stunning, although... More

Arrived at Samadhi after a 9 hour journey from Kuwait via Colombo. The train journey was mesmerising, so beautiful. We were collected fron Kandy station by the affable Akhbar (ask for him by name if you want a real quality tuk tuk driver). Samadhi is about 45 minutes out of town but well worth the journey. It's perfectly place in... More
