We were a group of 13 people who rented the house for a week. The location is fantastic, the rooms nice and the pool area was also good. It takes a little while to get to by TukTuk to Kandy but the surroundings and the view from the house made it worth it. The food was cooked in the house...

Great personally built development at the last stop in the road as it winds into the mountains. Terrific hospitality and attention from the owners. Great craik. Endless walks in the tea plantation and visits to Kandy easy. One needs a driver. And the access road will be completely redone to Lankan carpeting standards in 2017

We stayed 5 nights, the food was amazing and the couple who run the place have some great stories. Real peaceful homely atmosphere and a lovely swimming pool. There's also a bakery a short walk away through a tea plantation.

Amazing views, nice walks, great pool, spacious lawn for kids to play. Very comfortable beds and stylish rooms, especially for this price. At the end our son had a...

Words can't describe how beautiful this place is! Sally and Jerry are an awesome couple, who are so warm and welcoming. I could have stayed there forever.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jungle Tide is a British owned and managed homestay; a place to relax in the real Sri Lanka, away from the tourist spots yet still only forty minutes from Kandy city centre. Up here in the cool hills A/C is not necessary... Wake up to the sound of birdsong and marvelous mountain views. Stroll in the gardens, or take a longer walk in the surrounding hills. Swim in the pool, or just relax. All services, bed linen and towels as well as driver accommodation and Wi-Fi are included in the price on a B&B basis and our staff, Martin and Rani, will look after you superbly. ... more   less
