"Relaxing setting, great views, stunning gardens."
Very much enjoyed our stay, pleasant walks in the gardens, and trekking around the area, hotel guides helpful, pointing out the tea, coffee, and cinnamon. The views were stunning from our balcony, and room was very clean, with good facilities, tv , tea ,coffee, mini bar etc.
It makes a very relaxing place to stay, a little out of the way, so transport required to Kandy, but making a secluded getaway.
Great breakfasts, very large buffet catering for just about every taste, with bar meals available until late.
The staff were all pleasant and helpful, all in all, and very nice place.

Tucked away, just a couple of km from Kandy centre, in beautiful, spice laden gardens. The staff are absolutely wonderful - attentive and helpful, but not overbearing. The proprietor and his wife speak perfect English. Half day and full day tours were organised by the owner - just let them know what you want to do and they will help you fill in the itinerary. Breakfast and evening meal was a delight (take your own alcohol, if that's what you want). Accommodation was spotless and relaxing (we had one of the rooms, rather than bungalow, which were fully booked). Kandy centre is just 5 mins and around 300 sr rupees by tuk-tuk, which the staff organise within minutes for you. Would highly recommend as a Kandy-base. Word of caution - Kandy is not endowed with decent restaurants. Thank you Priyan.
Central Sri Lanka includes several fascinating towns. Hilly Kandy is home to the lakeside Temple of the Tooth, which houses a sacred tooth of the Buddha. Sigirya houses a fifth-century citadel, rock frescoes, and nearby Dambulla Cave Temple. Nuwara Eliya is known for its neighboring tea plantations. Polonnaruwa, in northeast-central Sri Lanka, features Sinhalese rock carvings and ancient city ruins.
