Baramba House is all that previous reviewers have said. Beautiful home and furnishings, great breakfast. Barbara is a gracious host and excellent cook. We arranged for dinner one evening - several courses with a main using fresh shrimp from the local market. It was delicious. $20 pp may seem expensive for Sri Lanka, but it was worth every penny. Only... More

Thank you Barbara and the staff at Baramba house for making our Sri Lanka trip memorable, we will never forget your beautiful home, hospitality and service. Baramba house is situated on top of a hill where the view is amazing. There are only 2 rooms so it was quiet, tranquil and the staff were attentive. The swimming pool is great... More

an amazing experience - the building and grounds are beautiful, peaceful and the perfect place to relax after experiencing the bustle of Kandy. Rooms are clean, spacious and beautifully furnished, with a patio area to unwind and a pool. One of the most enjoyable things was just relaxing in the evenings, watching the birds in the trees - Baramba has... More

This was a fantastic homestay. Rooms excellent - ceiling fans but no aircon. We had one evening meal here - excellent home cooking 20 dollars a head.... Breakfast - again fantastic home cooking. A delightful pool as well.

There isn't much more to say about Baramba that hasn't been said below. The most beautiful grounds, pool and room we had throughout sri lanka. Magnificent view. Short tuk tuk about 200-300LKR into town, but a bit more on return as it can be tricky to explain to the drivers, but easy enough to navigate to by memory or on... More

We had the big room which was really huge and also very well designed. Actually the whole property is really beautiful. You could watch the birds and squirrels during breakfast. Kandy itself was very busy and we were happy that we could go back to baramba house. It is located on a hill a bit outside of the actual town... More

I don't generally write reviews but Baramba House was simply the best place we stayed in in a month of travelling around Sri Lanka and so I add my compliments to those of all the other reviewers. Fantastic rooms, the best cooking we experienced but for me it was the kindness and friendliness of Barbara and her partner who made... More

We stayed 3 nights and could quite easily have stayed longer. All the other reviews say it all. Barbara's cooking is simply outstanding. The house set up is perfect and the small pool a perfect relief to the city heat. We would recommend using Kumar, as your tuctuc driver to ferry you into town and back, especially at night as...

My wife and I have travelled extensively and prefer home stays and boutique B & B's where possible. We chose to stay at Baramba House based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed in fact we were delighted with our choice. Set high in the hills with fantastic views this extremely comfortable B & B is a real gem.... More

Without doubt, the most stylish place we stayed in during our holiday in Sri Lanka. Fantastic accommodation with views to die for. Delicious food beautifully presented and freshly cooked by Barbara. Loku was very helpful in identifying the trees and plants in the garden and suggesting what to see in Kandy. Far enough out of the madness of Kandy but... More
