Razik and Nasli have a beautiful home to which they welcome their guests. It's up a winding lane off the main street so is quiet and peaceful. The rooms are large and have a balcony or patio to enjoy the morning or evening sun. Their garden is a work of art with flowers in abundance...truly an oasis! We enjoyed a...

One ofta the most expensive places we stayed in Sri Lanka but certainly not the best. Wifi in our room was pretty bad, I had to go outside to get anything done. No water pressure in the shower. The breakfast was the most plain we had during our 3,5 week vacation. I got a dodgy feeling from the owner as...

when we booked this accommodation we expected more for this price. We had much more better places for less money. The garden is very nice and you have the chance to eat outside. But for the money we paid I would expect a room service and a better room and washroom. So next time in Kandy I would book another...

We stayed at the garden room of the lodge with our 2 year old son. The room is nice and spacious, the garden is absolutely amazing, and the views are gorgeous.

The hosts are welcoming and kind and offer a personal experience. The bed was large and comfortable with fresh, clean linen. Located in a quiet area surrounded by serene gardens.
