During our time there we had several wonderful meals, either western or Sri Lankan cuisine. One day while relaxing on the veranda we... More

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
