Back after 10yrs and its only got better. We had the whole place to ourselves which was a bonus. Amazing food, scenery and service. We even got to see a clear view of Adams Peak! We took the tractor ride through the farm which was interesting. We will be back again before the end of the month for a longer stay! Thank you Roshi, Nayana and the staff.

What an amazing property coupled with amazing service and staff. Brilliant cuisine, lovely, well annointed and lovely accomadation. Between Nayana, Chef Tennakoon, Seelan and the team you will be pampered and well looked after. Brillaint place to acess Hortaon plains and also Nuwara eliya etc. They have a working strawberry and vegetable farm which you can visit. All round exceptional place with some exceptional people to make it a wonderful stay. They take COVID regulations very sericously and its impressive the level of detail they have gone into makeing things secure.

Only 6 months since their opening and I must say they doing really well. Since we are from the southern province, the whether was quiet a challenge for us. However,they patiently provided us with extra heaters despite having room heater and air heater on too. They have delicious mind blowing food.loved them soo much. We needed some changes in the menu as replacing bacon with tuna and vegetables with mashed potatoes. And they did those for us. Very happy with the food. Staff is very friendly too. Special thanks to Seelan and the kind lady at the reception. They provided us with excellent advice on when to visit Horton plains and also suggested to see sunrise which was so beautiful. An extra thank-you for that as well. A very nice experience. Will definitely stay here if we come again. Keep up the good work and all the best.

Locate at road to Horton plains. 10 KM from nuwara eliya town. Staff is really nice and friendly. Food is good. But not the best bbq. We were the only people on those two days. Had a very good time. Super location and a nice view.

Luxury accommodation, the most amazing views across the landscape from the terrace and through massive plate glass windows in living area and bedroom. Staff were very professional, friendly and informative about the area, wildlife, sights and advice on where best to walk. Nayana, the manager was very knowledgable about wildlife and in particular the birds which we were able to spot and identify in the grounds and flying across the valley. Ilango and Seelan, provided the best service at breakfast and dinner, nothing was too much trouble, including getting our packed lunches ready for a 4. 30 a.m. start to catch the sunrise at Horton Plains. A place not to be missed. - pass it on!!

We stayed to nights here whilst visiting Horton Plains and Nuwara Eliya. Our room (Demata) had wonderful views through huge plate glass windows out over the hill and forests. The staff were all very attentive and friendly and the food was excellent, with all their vegetables home grown. Note: bring your own booze or, if you forget, the Manager can organise a tuktuk to bring beer! There is a strawberry and vegetable farm next to the hotel and you can get a tour round if you are interested.

Our room has one of the best mountain’s views ever. There is no TV in the room, but who needs a TV when you have such a splendid view of nature right in front of you! It’s highly spacious and naturally cool. The bathroom has a nice bathtub with a magnificent view. Just imagine soaking yourself in the arms of nature.  The room has a charming balcony area where you can sit down, relax and admire the picturesque panorama upon you. Service is superb. It is definitely a hidden gem in Sri Lanka!

An amazing an awesome landscape to lost at the cloud forest. We reserved entire bungalow only for a night, feel sad we could have stayed more days at the lovely place minimum of 2 nights, perfect place to relax under mother nature. Nayana and Vinodh offered the best and extended services and Chef Sena made us delicious multi-cuisine dinner and breakfast. Awaiting to visit you very soon….!
