We spent 2 weeks at Jungle Tide and we loved every minute of it! It is a beautiful house with spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. Spending time in the garden is nothing short of idyllic, with stunning trees, fascinating bird life, playful monkeys, and the distant sound of Buddhist prayer.......Wonderful! The swimming pool is amazing, it is surprisingly large and... More

We had the best stay in Jungle tide. The setting is beautifully, the house is perfect and the staff is excellent. Close to Kandy but far enough to enjoy the Nature. Thank you Martin and Rani for being so kind. Our kids Nina and Alex send you a big hug!

We had a wonderful time, in gorgeous surrounds and great food (both western and sri lankan). Sally and Jerry were very attentive to our family and especially to our young kids. (they still say Sally and Jerry's is the best place we've ever stayed at!) They have a wealth of information on Sri Lanka that covers not only travel tips... More

I loved this place. It is in the most beautiful location, 20 minutes from Kandy by Tuktuk, and surrounded by tea plantations. The views of the hill country around Kandy are glorious. The proprietors, Sally, who spent her childhood in Sri Lanka, and Jerry, made me feel very much at home. The bedroom was clean and spacious. The food, cooked... More

Located on the same mountain side as the Tea Plantation there is the opportunity to walk and explore the immediate area. The locals are very friendly and enjoy interacting with visitors. The food is outstanding and in a month's stay there were no repeats! Excuse the pun. If wild life is your thing then just relax on your patio and... More

Found out about day trips to Jungletide from the Bamboo garden restaurant leaflet and decided to get away from the hectic Kandy life. We have just spent a wonderful day with Jerry and Sally, enjoyed tea on arrival, a tour of the gardens, a tour of the local village with guide Martin, saw a preschool, local living and the bakery...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jungle Tide is a British owned and managed homestay; a place to relax in the real Sri Lanka, away from the tourist spots yet still only forty minutes from Kandy city centre. Up here in the cool hills A/C is not necessary... Wake up to the sound of birdsong and marvelous mountain views. Stroll in the gardens, or take a longer walk in the surrounding hills. Swim in the pool, or just relax. All services, bed linen and towels as well as driver accommodation and Wi-Fi are included in the price on a B&B basis and our staff, Martin and Rani, will look after you superbly. ... more   less
