I had been to the Samadhi Center two years ago with a group and brought another group back this year. The place is lovely - set high on top of a hill just outside Kandy. To be fair, this is not in central Kandy and in fact the closest town at the bottom of the hill is Digana. This is... More

I didn't really know what to expect, as I had not vacationed in such accommodation before so I was a little nervous about lied ahead. The experience was exhilarating. Perfect combination of beautiful outdoors, the warmth of the staff made me feel very welcome. The... More

The Samadhi Centre is a magical place tucked away in the hills of Digana, bordering the Knuckles Range. The service is excellent, the food is amazing and the place is absolutely breathtaking. The property sprawls across acres of forest and really makes you feel like you are the only people there. The place is designed beautifully and decorated with gorgeous... More

So there's the rest of Sri Lanka and then there is The Kandy Samadhi Centre! If I had my way, I wouldn't be back from there at all!! It's a place where you must get lost to discover yourself. Little cottages perched on a rocky hill. It would be injustice to call them rooms! The owner Waruna has paid so... More

The samadhi centre is a wonderful retreat with amazing decor. The location is remote however this is perfect for relaxation. The staff are excellent and always willing to help. The rooms have been decorated with antiques but are also very functional.

The Kandy Samadhi Center is a great option for anyone looking for a comfortable chilled out experience in the hills outside of Kandy. The place is well run, peaceful, sustainable and affordable. Plus most of their meals (all buffet style) are cooked over an open fire in the traditional way and were quite good, leaving us no room for complaints.... More
