All is alreay said in the orevious reviews. We've been to some olaces around the world but never experienced a whole inspiring experience like that. Spiritual, magical, mistical. This is almost like fulfilling a wish. Humbleness towards nature. Monkeys, squirls, birds, fireflies... The nighly oil lamps the sound of the river or rain drops. Poetic moments and inspired moments.

No need to write too much to describe Samadhi: Magic, Sacred and Enchanting are the 3 words to describe it. This is definitely the place to let go, to enjoy and explore within. Union of the body, mind and spirit. Whether it’s day or night, there is a special Light at Kandy Samadhi Centre, a Light that enters you and... More

What a special place to stay! After a tortuous journey from Colombo we were warmly greeted by the welcoming and gracious staff, and treated to a wonderful candlelit dinner and then taken to our enormous, comfortable room (the size of an average apartment). The Samadhi Centre will appeal to those wanting a complete break (including no wifi) in gorgeous natural... More

What a fantastic place to stay- well worth the drive. We stayed for three nights in the paint house which was lovely- comfortable and clean and very unusual. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the manager Jack couldnt do enought for us- sorted out drivers and itinery. The authentic Sri Lankan food was excellent. We bathed in the... More

We spent two nights here during the Esala Perahera. Our room was enormous with huge open windows that overlooked the river which was absolutely beautiful. Our room was a five minute walk from the main hotel, however, the road was lit at night and we were supplied with torches. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. Our one... More

This hotel is in the middle of the Kandy mountains and it is a amazing place to relax and enjoy nature. The staff is incredible and the chef did an amazing job. The hotel is almost an hour away from the city of Kandy so we recommend that you visit the city and buy anything extra you may need before... More

The Kandy Samadhi Centre is a nice escape from the hustle of Kandy city which is unrelentless in its noise and fumes. The place itself is a little different from what we'd originally expected. It's located on a really large property in amongst the mountains and forest, which is nice and relaxing. We had quite a sizeable, uphill walk to... More

We stayed at Kandy Samadhi Centre for one night after 3 nights in the hustle of Kandy. It was a welcome change. The trip up the mountain by taxi is very winding, took about 40 minutes and cost us 3,500 rupees. We were warmly greeted by our host Jack and taken to our pavilion (we were upgraded for free as...

Impeccable service, really beautiful rooms with a lot of character and a genuinely peaceful atmosphere. It's not particularly cheap, but worth the extra dollars in my opinion. The massages and yoga classes are good quality. You should know that drinks are not included in the price of the meals - they didn't tell us that in advance. The wifi wasn't... More

Beautifully situated in the Knuckles away from the bustle of Kandy. We stayed for three nights and relaxed in the Mountain room, walked to the waterfall and swam in the river where we saw white bellied sea eagles twice. Loved the eccentricity of this great mountainside project. All the rooms are furnished with antiques with great attention to detail. Highly... More
