After landing from Paris, we were looking for a place to stay after visiting Pinnawala elephant orphanage and Athulya was at a reasonable distance. The guesthouse was very nicely located with beautiful upcountry scenery. We stayed in two cottages and they were clean and warmly decorated. The bathroom had a Jacuzzi which we were able to relax in. It has... More

Lovely place, very sweet staff, beautiful rooms and really good hospitality, would recommend this place to every person who visits SriLanka. Food was also tasty. Far from the city traffic and noises, nice place to chill and go around the resort at early mornings.

Fall asleep to the sounds of birds and distant elephants in your luxury casita. Swim in the elegant pool as you watch a warm thunderstorm come in. Have a private candlelit dinner on the patio. Welcoming and thoughtful staff will help you feel at home.

We stayed there for 4 days in March & we were really happy with the choice of place, the place itself is a little far from Kandy and away from the hustle bustle, all you'll hear are chirping birds throughout the day. The staff was very warm & hospitable and they make amazing sri lankan food. Just bear in mind... More

It is Serene and beautiful. Absolute peace and blissful. 30 mins away from Kandy town but our purpose was to relax and unwind. Hence not complaining. Staff make u feel at home. Spent birthday there, they all gave a personal touch to celebrations. Wish had more days there. Will revisit for sure. Thanks Nuwan and others.

They cooked us a beautiful dinner, and made me a birthday cake alongside that. One of the guys also showed us around the garden and everything they grow there; one of my favourite parts of our...
