“Amazing place with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Buetiful boutique hotel with great service. WE stayed there 4 couples for 3 nights, and except for the very bad road from Nuwara Eliya (5 km in 30 minutes...), the place is perfect and offers great views, a spa and a nice pool.

Took some time getting here, as the location is quite off the main town, guess all tea estate bungalows are. The roads are under development; should be smooth in a couple of months time. but once you reach the resort, its pure bliss. An old English bungalow redeveloped to a modern day resort. A fine blend of the old and the new...friendly staff and good local food. the location is fantastic....great pool and a spa..

Well well...strange experience I had during my stay. This boutique resort almost has military rules and if you dont pocket the right tips a very stiff upper lip.

Limited ala carte menu and off menu food along with timings has to be given much in advance. Dont be surprised if you get No's to quite a lot of your request and this would be strange because you may not find the same attitude elsewhere in the island.

Now for the property, I think the property is beautiful, very cosy and warm. The spa functional but respectable. A wonderful pool but please give atleast 6 to 8 hrs notice if you want to swim and them to start the heater and the water to get warm...

Beware of the shower in the bathroom, very impractical. You need to climb into a very odd shaped uneven device called a tub...(well I have tried this stunt before but never in a uneven shaped tub floor) and then shower. You need to pray to the rain gods so that you would have sufficient water presure). The tub i heard works just fine if you use in for the purpose it is made for.

And ofcourse the road to Langdale and Nuwara Eliya can be a lille tough on kids so do carry enough plastic bags.

All in all I loved the placed minus what I described above, so do take a try...

tipping is the key...service could be better for those with non-asian passports too...

Room Tip: Room away from the pool tabel is good if you want less noise, but yes these rooms have access into t...

This is a very pretty hotel in a glorious setting . The service is great but the food is just OK. The rooms are very clean but somewhat basic . When you actually get to the hotel the scenery is fabulous but the road from Nuwara Eliya ,bad at the best of times is presently a nightmare as they are in the process of expanding it - completion 2015.
We also asked if the pool was heated and were told 'yes' . In reality the pool can be heated but is not so is way too cold to swim in - we asked for the heat to be put on but I don't think it ever was .

If you want to branch out from the tourist trail a little take some walks around the tea plantations on the opposite side of the valley. We walked for a whole day and it was magnificent - it was clear we were a novelty wherever we went and actually the whole school came out to say 'hello' - it was one of the best days on the island .

The manager is this hotels biggest asset and will do everything he can to make your stay a great one

We stayed here for 2 nights and though the rooms were clean and comfortable the furniture was dated and the place had a shabby feel to it. With a few improvements this could be a really lovely place as the views are incredible, the exterior is really nice and the staff are friendly (there's even a small swimming pool – apparently it's the only hotel in the area that has one). In the restaurant the Western food was pretty average so it's worth asking to eat Sri Lankan food which was very good. Overall this place is fine for a couple of nights but it's a bit pricey for what you get.

Room Tip: Try and make sure you don't get a room on the ground floor – it was pretty noisy and the room wa...

We stayed for a couple of days during August 2012, we had two rooms both with fantastic facilities and great views of the suroundin tea planttaions and hills.

From arrival we were treated like royalty, tea on arrival, personal attention to menu needs and of course high tea provided during the afternoons.

The hotel and staff were truly magnificent, would we recommend this relaxing hotel and its entire staff, the answer is yes and if we are ever in the region again, we will book to go back.

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms look out over the hils and stunning surroundings

We stayed one night in the Langdale by Amaya hotel in July 2012. The hotel was recommended by Red Dot Tours. There were 5 of us in two rooms.

We were made to feel most welcome. The rooms were lovely and clean, the pool was beautiful and a lovely temperature and the surrounding area is very peaceful - surrounded by tea plantations.

The road to the hotel from Colombo is temporarily very bad because of the work on the dam locally - so be prepared for a long, slow journey there. Once you are there, however, the hotel feels like an oasis.

The food was excellent but our only disappointment was that it was British rather than Sri Lankan. However we realised that if we wanted Sri Lankan food we could order it for future evenings - a note for our future stays at the hotel.

We did not have time to use the fitness centre or the spa - to be honest we did not know the hotel had either of those.
