We stayed for 6 nights towards the end of our holiday in Sri Lanka. Without doubt, it was the best place we stayed during our holiday.
From the moment we contacted Barbara to book our rooms, we have been amazed at the quality of service. Barbara was so helpful with all our arrangements and accommodating when dates and number of people in our group needed to be changed. This level of hospitality continued when we actually arrived at Baramba.
Where should I start... The rooms are all beautiful, very spacious and comfortable with fans. The quality of food was excellent - breakfast was a feast and it is clear that Barbara and Sandun take great pride in their home and in looking after their guests. Lots of fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices, home made jams and marmalades, freshly baked bread and so on.
We were also lucky enough to sample home cooked dinner which again did not disappoint.
There is a lovely large lounge area, mini kitchen and a separate dining area in the downstairs of the house which made it feel like a home from home. The views are simply stunning and we were treated to the nightly parade of bats making their way from the Botanical Gardens and flying over the house.
It was an incredibly relaxing stay and we would definitely return to Baramba again. Value for money is exceptional and having visited a couple of the hotels in Kandy during our stay, I would not hesitate in choosing Baramba over any of these.
