We had a fantastic stay at Hugging Clouds for 2 nights to hike Adam’s peak. The rooms are spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated and a great breakfast is provided. We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay and the food was tasty, and very reasonably priced. Madu, the owner, spoke excellent English and was very helpful in organising transport both to and from Hugging Clouds. On the afternoon after the climb, Madu took us to visit a local waterfall which was well worth the trip - lovely scenery and the chance to swim at the waterfall which was very refreshing for our tired legs! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hugging Clouds and would highly recommend a stay here.
The staff direct you since they have better experience. What to carry, where to go, what time to start, and even the exact height to the top. Total height of the Adams peak from the sea level = 2243 meters. Hugging clouds Nallathanniya is at = 1272 meters. From there the hike to Top of Adams peak = 971 meters. No charge for the hike. No entrance fee. Season for the locals, starts from Full moon day of December to full moon day of May. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops and even the path is lightened during that period. If you travel off season then A Flashlight, Some Snacks, Cookies, Biscuits, Water, Rain jackets, Thicker clothes would be very helpful.
Situated in the perfect location for the Adam’s Peak hike (only 3 min walk to the start) we were welcomed into the most homely and relaxed environment!! The owners and staff went above and beyond at any given situation! From the check in desk to the kitchen they do it all and the whole place is operated so casually and gives a great feel as soon as you walk in, just like you’re at a friends place. The staff are extremely helpful and the food onsite is great!! The rooms are all you need. Especially if you’re doing the sunrise hike!! The team are always looking to help you get to your next destination, as they offered us a lift to Hatton station the next day. Although we stayed for basically “half a night” this was one of the best places we’ve stayed.. and it’s all to do with the atmosphere and ambiance they provided!!…
This lovely B&B surprises with cool interior style. The food is very nice and the service is excellent. We were taken care of from the first moment of arriving and shown fantastic places in the near surroundings. Rooms are clean and functional.
We came to hike Adam's peak and stayed at this lovely place. The attention started with the booking, receiving the replies quickly and they arranged to pick us up at Hatton train station without hassle. The rooms are simple but very clean. Be sure to ask for other tours to the waterfalls, for example. We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the area!
