  • Guava House is an absolute piece of paradise. If you are keen on visiting Sri Lanka's inland activites, this is a great base and a magnificent environment. The housekeepers Jeyanthi and Suddhartha are super-warm and welcoming. The house is very clean and accommodating. The nature around the house, the jungle, the pool, the house; everything is simply magical. We literally ran back to the house after everyday's activities and wished that we had more time to enjoy the great food and the pool. Would go back any day :)

  • Lal and her family are lovely. So nice to stay with a family learning about the area and history. The food was amazing and space very comfortable. Will come back for sure!

    Kent2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Best stay we had in Sri Lanka!

    Michael2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was a top-notch hospitality experience. Lal and the family were constantly available to help, guide, and feed us. I strongly recommend arranging your meals at home instead of going out.

    Roger2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place will be one of our trip highlights. We experienced a true Sri Lankan hospitality, homemade meals and generosity. Lal is very knowledgeable and was free to take us on an amazing day tour teaching us some local history and botany. Romeni is caring and attended all our needs even arraigned a doctor for me when I was sick making sure I took my medicine :) The food is exceptional and the room is very cozy and comfortable. Situated away from the busy centre but only 10 minutes walk or short tuk tuk ride. We highly recommend a stay at Lal’s house and a visit to beautiful Nuwara Eliya.

    Anat2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was great to stay at Lal’s. The room is cosy and greatly located. Their family is lovely and does everything to accommodate you.

    Inês2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the stay with Lal's family. Lal is a coffee lover and makes his own coffee, you should ask him about his coffee project and sure drink one or two cups during breakfast, it is excellent. Grace his wife is an excellent cook, such a lovely person and we really enjoyed talking to here. Romeni cared about everything which was to organize and she did this perfectly. She invited us to here birthday cake and coffee, we felt really like at home. Thanks all of you, if we are back in Sri Lanka we will definitely come back.

  • The house is beautiful, the view spectacular and Liz and her family were very welcoming. Would definitely go back!

    Jack2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay with Liz and Luc. The place is beautiful with amazing views and the hospitality is first class. Liz's son Luc even came all the way into Kandy to collect us and then dropped us off at the railway station when we left. The food is excellent with hotel style service, the pool is refreshing with fantastic views and we even did an Ayurveda massage there too. Thoroughly recommended.

    Ed2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great Location with Stunning view. Great local breakfast and Dinner. Helpful and Customer orientated.

    Christian2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • I would say that we enjoyed more staying at Liz and Lucs property than staying at Kandy. You get in to the property and are received with such warmth. Everything has detail - conversations, food, instructions, the staff. Highlights are the pool and the breathtaking view. Liz and Luc are special people. The kind that this world needs more of. Luc was so entertaining. I think he should mass produce and make more of his kind. The world will be a happier place ;)

    Saksham2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Liz, Luc and Lilly are amazing. Lovely house with a beautiful view. The food is great and the vibe is good. The dogs are sweet (also for our daughters at the age of 2 and 3) You feel at home when your there. When we visit Sri Lanka again we will be back here!

    Anne Eva2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect introduction to Sri Lanka. From the airport pick up by a very friendly driver all the way through until the end of my stay I couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. Liz and her family have created the perfect place to relax. The food was incredible (and so much of it), the rooms were clean and well thought out and the view......THE VIEW. I could sit there for hours and still not take my eyes off it. Luke (Liz’s son) took me off on a day hike around the local area and up the river and became a good friend over the few days I was there, he’s also fluent in French and has an obvious passion for hospitality. Thank you all so much, and I will hopefully be back soon. Sam x

    Samuel2019-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful vacation! The view from the windows of the house is a fantastic 、 beautiful area 、 a very secluded 、 spiritual place! Delicious (very tasty and hearty) breakfast! We seemed to be visiting friends. And Liz and her family helped us with everything - with the sights 、 and with the transfer to the train station 、 and even when we arrived late at night we fed dinner. Thank you very much!

    Екатерина2019-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Liz and Luc were wonderful hosts! They helped us with everything and prepared wonderful breakfast and dinner each day. The atmosphere in the apartment was warm, kind and welcoming. The house itself was lovely and the view from the garden just stunning! I would recommend this place to anybody who is planning to stay in Kandy!

  • Amazing stay at the Hide Out Cabins. Amazing views, very relaxing. Breakfast was incredible - Pubudu had so many local tips and was so helpful throughout. Amazing all round!

    James2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. Stunning homes with fantastic value. Tucked away about 15 mins from town in the middle of a tea farm. The design was something out of a fairy tale. The home was very comfortable, stars to sun rise was more than anything we could have asked for. The breakfast prepared by the owners were lovely, they have the cutest kittens and puppies on site, so be prepared to have your heart melted during your stay!!! Seriously, the value is unbeatable, if you don’t want the generic stopover in Nuwara Eliya, this is your destination!

    Samantha2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely breathtaking! The location of the property, the cottage in itself, the service, everything is amazing. It looks magical in the pictures but it's even better in real life. Would recommend this to friends, couples and solo travellers alike. 10/10 ♥️

    Amrita2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very cozy, unique cabins with spectacular views. Pubudu is very nice and quick in communication. Also we really loved his mom and the breakfast she made us!

    Janneke2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • great stay, very kind and helpful host. Excellent value for money

    Nicola2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • From the day of the booking the communication from the host has been very professional and beyond what was expected from such a place. All the requirements were asked by the host well before we arrived at the place, much to the satisfaction of us. The place is situated with perfect scenery and was super clean, both inside and outside. Totally worth it for the price and would recommend to anyone. Hopefully with time roads can be improved a bit so that even a slightly big vehicle can go near the place with ease, but overall 9.9/10 for the stay.

    Piyum2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • This accomodation is perfect for a night to relax away from the main time, with amazing views looking out on to tea plantations. It is in walking distance to the lake but maybe not the main part of town, going into town would require a tuk tuk. Either all of you’re not interested in the town so much this is a perfect place to hang out and have a break from other epic travels.

    Poppy2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Hideout cabins popped up On Instagram and we were instantly hooked. The A Frame building are super cool and the location great with lovely views. The hospitality was amazing. We are a family of 4 with two small girls aged 5 and 7. Nothing was too much trouble for Pubudu and his family. They sorted out transfers to and from the station. Tuk Tuks into town and helped us with breakfast variations for our girls. Oh, ask for some homemade lime juice drink. It’s unbelievable x

    Nuwara Eliya, Central Province, Sri Lanka

    Amandari is a 4 bedroom set in a peaceful and idyllic location with breath taking views over the Mahaweli river valley. Only 5 km away from the fabulous Peradeniya Gardens, it can accommodate up to 9 guests in 4 spacious, well-appointed bedrooms and offers living and dining space, a kitchen and generous panoramic terraces. The total floor area of the villa is 3,500 sq. ft. An ideal getaway for families and friends, the villa is surrounded by a lush garden.
    The magnificent views open to the Mahaweli River valley and stretch all the way to the central mountain region where in clear days the famous Adam's Peak can be admired. This is an oasis of tranquillity, the perfect retreat where to unwind under the gentle breeze of the cooler climate of this part of the Kandy region. The magnificence of the blue skies during the day is followed by dramatic sunsets and an incredibly bright mantle of stars at night. Yet the property, with its wonderful sense of isolation and integration with the wilderness is just few yards away from public transport and the facilities of the local village.
    In the immediate vicinity of the property there are wonderful treks which will take the guests to experience breath taking panoramas and amazing wildlife. Peradeniya Botanical garden is just 15minutes drive from the villa. Buddhist temples can be visited by a short walk too. With a short commute, all the wonders of the historic city of Kandy can be explored, while many other famous Sri-Lanka attractions are reachable with a one day trip.
  • A beautiful, modern property that provided a very comfortable stay. We booked last minute as a stop off on our way to Sigiriya - the host was quick to confirm our stay. The property was lavish and we were made to feel welcome. We left the apartment at 5am to continue our journey to Sigiriya and Mr Anura met us and ensured we had a pleasant stay! Would have enjoyed staying longer!

    Vivian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Felt like home! We were a group of 9 and stayed at Amandari for 6 nights. The hosts were very welcoming and the place was super neat and tidy. We all loved the atmosphere and the amazing views. Dammi's food was amazing! I recommend this place for anyone, but specially someone who wants to be away from the city life and relax in a calm environment. we would definitely go back to Amandari.

    Pramodi2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here felt like been at home. The hosts were wonderful, the food was delicious and they accommodated our dietary needs. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the setting was sensational. It was located in an isolated area with a gorgeous view and no noise from the city. We were two families with nine people including children and it worked perfectly. Would definitely go back.

    Peter2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second time at Amandari and we loved it so much last time that we brought along our extended family to enjoy Amandari with us. A lovely home, tucked away in the peaceful mountains overlooking Kandy away from the noise of the city that is made just that extra bit special by the lovely Anura and Dammi who looked after us like family. Our kids (5 and 7) loved exploring and playing in the garden. The house had plenty of space (and privacy) for our 3 separate families to enjoy. Dammi’s cooking was excellent (catering to multiple food allergies) and Anura drove us around so very carefully for some sightseeing. We were sad to leave and look forward to returning again next year.

    Kaushalya2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the house is mind blowing. The house is as beautiful as the view. The house is very well kept and the interiors are breath taking. Sparkling clean and beautiful indoors and outdoors. If you like to be a little away from the hustle and bustle of the city this is the best place for you.

    Nathel2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The stay here was wonderful. I was happy to eat Sri Lankan home cooking. I highly recommend it.

    Shuntaro2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Amandari. It’s a beautiful spot with the most amazing views. Our hosts were always helpful and were great cooks - we had breakfast and dinner at the house everyday. The hosts, Dami and Anuri, were always helpful and were great with our 3 & 5 year olds. There’s plenty of space and is immaculately maintained. And although it’s a bit out of Kandy, Anuri was always available to drive us into town and we could catch a tuk tuk home. I’d recommend staying at Amandari to anyone, it’s been the highlight of our trip so far.

  • Very nice house and the hosts are welcoming! Prepared early breakfast for us to take away. Nuwaraeliya is cold but the room has a very warm blanket, the best sleep we had in Sri Lanka!

    Zoey2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful. The owners have kept this old colonial home as original and it’s just so sweet. The whole place is spotlessly clean and welcoming. It’s just outside the town down a little lane ( 5 minute walk to town ) so was nice and quiet. Asela’s wife is a fabulous cook and went to the trouble to cook extra potatoes for breakfast after my partner ate his first plate ! Asela was very interesting to talk to and very kind. He gave us a lift to the train station when we left. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again one day. Thank you

    Tina2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, the surroundings are pleasant and the rooms are comfortable. Contacting the host will pick up and drop off personally, very warm, we had dinner at the host's home cheap and delicious. Woke up early the next morning to Horton Plains and prepared a hearty breakfast for us

    Arya2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • After the long train journey, the landlord's pick-up was very intimate and in place, and the location of the house was very good and the decoration was very European. Very satisfied to be able to live in this room in Sri Lanka. And the landlord was very, very, very nice, took us to the tea plantation, and also helped us to arrange a driver to Horton Plains. And the prepared breakfast was delicious. I hope I can stay with my friends again in the future!

  • Very beautiful house, situated in the mountains, with pleasant views. The host was also very nice and drove to and from the train station in person. Provided us with a lot of useful help, let us spend a pleasant two days here. Highly recommended ^ _ ^

  • Lalitha and her family are super kind and very helpful. She organised a nice trip to the near waterfalls and cooks briliant meals which are cheaply priced. If you travel alone, the price for the very big room might be a bit on the expensive side but perfect for 2-3 person.

    Bertil2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lalitha's place was the highlight of our Srilanka stay. She guided us to visit the Aberdeen falls and do a trek to witness the mighty Saptha Kanya. We loved the dip in the pool at the stay and the food offered was simply the best meal you will have on the island. Along with that, the hidden and not so talked about stories of the Lanka land enlightened us during our stay. I wish we had stayed longer. Thank you, Lalitha for giving us memories that we will always cherish. :)

    Ravi2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect host in what can be a quite secluded area. Lalitha treats you like family whilst also giving you space to do your own thing. She will help with any directions order transport and cook for you (for a small price) from things from her garden. The food is amazing.

    Tom2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at lalitha's place. We loved the beautiful panoramic views from the villa. The bedrooms have beautiful views of the surrounding hills and it was a scenic treat every morning. We did a few hikes available in and around the villa and all them end with great views of the surrounding valleys. A great place for anyone seeking beautiful scenery and tranquility. A special note on lalitha's cooking - simply amazing! Our meals included a wide variety of traditional dishes cooked with vegetables and herbs straight out of her organic garden. She is very creative and her omelettes are a must try. Lalitha is treasure trove of tips on local sightseeing. We had a great time at Aberdeen waterfall and it's a must go if you are staying at bamgargaala villa. Overall, it's been a great experience. 5 stars!! Indeed.

    Anil2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with wonderful views and walks . Lalitha is a wonderful host and the food was traditional and delicious. A great place to stay in Norton Bridge..

    Russell2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lalitha’s place was perfect! We arrived from Kandy on the train which was really easy. We climbed Adam’s Peak the following morning and Lalitha was really helpful with arranging a tuk-tuk driver to get us there and back. On Lalitha’s advice we also visited Aberdeen Falls which is a must see! It’s a beautiful and tranquil waterfall, off the beaten track so nice and quiet too, perfect for a quiet swim. Lalitha’s meals were amazing too, the best we have had so far in Sri Lanka - proper Sri Lankan cooking with ingredients from her garden. This place was great to base ourselves from we had a lovely relaxing stay with local walks too.

    Lucy2019-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Lalitha's place where we stayed 2 nights while exploring the area. Three things stood out: 1) The view and surrounding landscape is amazing. Lush hills covered in tea plantations or jungle. The house is situated above the main road with stunning view from the veranda where we did spend quite a few hours just enjoying the calmness 2) A lot to explore in the surrounding area. We did Adam's peak, saw waterfalls, tea plantations and the great nature just in the surroundings. We would have stayed longer and explored the local area more if we had known. 3) Lalitha was the greatest host. She was very friendly, made sure we were OK all the time, gave recommendations on local things to explore, cocked local Sri Lankan food, and was very personal and friendly.

    Mikael2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place, very calm and peaceful, free from all the worries of the outside world. Walking along silent paths in the kingdom of the sky, greenery and silent mountains, you will have enough time to reflect on your past, present and future. The harmony of the landscape will amaze your imagination and will be remembered for you for life. The hosts are very welcoming and kind-hearted. You will be offered perhaps the most delicious food that can be found in Sri Lanka. Dishes for every taste, which will please both lovers of spicy Asian cuisine, and delicate stomachs of Europeans. Initially, some inconveniences may be caused by leeches, which are especially active in the morning and evening hours, and after the rain. But leech socks will help to solve this problem. In general, leeches are better than mosquitoes, which in this area of the island is almost none . You have to take care about having some reserve of cash, because the place is located is quite far from cities. Nearest ATM in Hatton (20km). I wish all the best to Lalitha and good rest to all travelers. Best regards and hope to visit this place again, David

    Removed from the bustle of Kandy and nestled in a tea plantation, the Octagon was built using sustainable methods by local craftsmen. Conveniently situated close to ancient temples and jungle villages, we are only 45 minutes from Kandy. The Octagon is now fully equipped for self catering with a gas hob, fridge and microwave. . They can also request delicious Sri Lankan meals cooked by Naomi. The cost of lunch/dinner is 800 rupees per meal. There is also a take-away a five minute walk away!
    The Octagon is a beautiful eight sided building, perched within the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It overlooks its own private tea plantation, and is perfect for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet. A perfect spot for yoga, meditation, reading and writing. Set in the midst of a tea plantation, the Octagon is surrounded by beautiful native wildflowers and the call of birdsong will simply take your breath away:) For those seeking a place of seclusion (writers, artists, yogis, spiritualists or plain tea drinkers!) the Octagon is ideal. For those of you seeking evening entertainment and bright lights this is not the place for you perhaps, unless you need somewhere to catch your breath. Many guests have enjoy interesting dinner table conversations with Richard Murphy, well known Irish poet , who resides in his own cottage on the property. Richard has a host of interesting facts and stories about this beautiful Island. When Richard was a boy he was brought here by his father who acted as the last British Mayor of Colombo in 1935. Ancient paths lead adventurous walkers and locals to nearby jungle villages, where you have the chance to interact with the friendly locals and catch a glimpse the 'real' Sri Lanka. Close to The Octagon, one thousand year old temples lie waiting for you to explore alone as you will often find that you are the only tourist lucky enough to have stumbled upon this hidden treasure. The wonderful botanical gardens of Peridinya are twenty minutes away. The origins of the Botanic Gardens date as far back as 1371 when King Wickramabahu III ascended the throne and kept court at Peradeniya near the Mahaweli river. The bussling tourist centre of Kandy, with the famous Temple of the Tooth, is still within 45 minutes drive of our location. The city boasts luxury hotels and spas which are a pleasant stop-gap option en-route to The Octagon, your own rural heaven.
    The Octagon is set in a very remote location and provides the perfect destination for those looking to enjoy the 'real' Sri Lanka. This is a gorgeous structure, far from the beaten track, with views over the surrounding valley with farmland and wilderness for as far as the eye can see. We are a forty minute drive from the centre of Kandy, tuktuks (local moot-taxis) are easily available. The Octagon is close to many beautiful and rarely visited ancient temples, and is surrounded by native jungle villages, including one village totally devoted to drum-making.
  • A great home away from civilization to relax from the hustle and bustle. The location is better to look at AppleMaps.

    Ekaterina2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Octagon offers a lot of space, wonderful garden and terrace. It is perfect to rest and have a privacy. The temperature was very pleasant even in February, so no need of AC, (it lays 500m above sea level). The caretaker Desmond offers delicious breakfast and dinner and is very helpful and friendly. It is not easy to find the house, however Desmond guides the driver successfully. We are so satisfied there, that we would like to come again.

    Monica2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot recommend this place enough! So spacious and stylish and peaceful! Amazing breakfast provided by the wonderful Desmond and great advice on what to do in the area.

    Ellen2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • It is our third time staying at the Octagone! Beauty and peace. we absolutely love it! we shall come back and visit again🌸

  • Beautiful oasis to relax and be, yoga mats and hammocks are also available Delicious food and friendly, helpful family

    Vanessa2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing for those who would like to spend their time by reading, writing, meditating or doing some yoga. You can have your own time closer to nature. Hospitality and food from Desmond was invaluable and delicious. Thanks for everything

    Chanaka2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

    Shawn2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, serene and peaceful. Had an such and excellent time here that we extended our stay here. Like tweeting by just looking at the headline, we almost got there without talking to Desmond. If you are visiting, call Desmond ahead of time, that will make reaching this place easy. Excellent place, excellent host. Will stay here every chance we get.

    Jana2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. If you’re visiting Ambuluwaawa, stay here. Location is very convenient (about a 5-10 min drive) to get there. Has a good backyard with a mountain view and a big kitchen and a dining area for meals. Very easy checking and checkout process.

    Shane2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • Going for a hike up Ambuluwawa Tower? This place is in a perfect position 2km from the start of the 3km walk/tuk tuk up. Also lovely big home with all the amenities you need to get your washing done and dry. If I might add only one thing it would be a hammock outside on the stoep. 👌👌

    Gampola, Central Province, Sri Lanka

    Live and experience an uncompromised mountainous region and a unique bunch of villagers in Sri Lanka, whose core occupation is farming and life revolving around a peaceful culture originating from a Buddhist environment, tranquil harmony, beautiful valleys and flavorful culinary using age old family traditions, utensils, care and love. it's open to the natural elements. Thereby....."living with nature"
    To meditate..... A small cottage with 2 bedrooms(1 with a magnificent view), living room, glass living room, 2 balconies (1 open air) and a well-equipped kitchenette. All except for one bedroom are with a view of the vast valleys. Also a place where one can witness Eagles flying in the mornings, at eye level. The weather changes from a little warm to a cool temperature during the day and from a sunny windy hour to a rain without any warnings. Nights are chilly to an average of 17 degrees Celsius. Extremely peaceful environment with a green surrounding
    It’s a neighborhood inhabited with many laid back villagers, whose main occupation is farming, and evolve around a very peaceful traditional Buddhist culture, not exposed to any sort of commercial tourism. The villagers’ cooking is authentic and divine. Meals could be organized through village folk….real Sri Lankan cooking for around $2(max) per person.
  • One of the best places I stayed in Sri Lanka, the view was incredible to wake up to. Janaka was very kind and helpful, he arranged some really big/tasty meals which was much appriciated as there is not many places to eat within walking distance. I enjoyed the walk up to the lake and viewpoint. Very beautiful and serene place, would 100% re-visit.

    Joe2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • I wanted a quite place to spend a few days in nature and catch up on some work. Eagles nest did not disappoint. Stunning views from the house, peaceful, quiet, with nature all around...Even the rain did not bother me..The caretaker Janaka was amazing, He looked after my needs and was so helpful...His wife’s cooking was so tasty and fresh..Authentic Sri Lankan quinine.. The owner Charmaline was not around but she called in a few times to see if everything was Oklahoma, very attentive and welcomed. There was a power cut one day due to a fallen tree, but it was back on by sunset...A minor hiccup on this amazing stay. I loved my walks in the nearby village, soaking in the quaint village life. The locals were so kind. I can’t say enough good things about eagles nest.. Will surely come back again.

    Andrew2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location with a scenic view, homely and cosy just as you'd expect from their family home. Just something to bear in mind if you have small children - some steep stairs where our toddler had a fall, but Charmaline was very helpful. We'll probably come back once our kids are a little bigger!

    Joyce2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Had an almost surreal experience at Eagle's Nest. Wish we could've stayed longer

    Malinga2019-12-18T00:00:00Z

    Prashanth2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Can’t say enough good things about ATT’s. Top air bnb experience, you get a taste of Sri Lanka’s authentic best. 5 star service thanks to the care taker Janaka and his wife’s cooking. The photos don’t do the view justice, amazing.

    James2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • For a quiet stay in nature, surrounded by lush vegetation and stunning views of misty mountains, this is the place. The glasshouse is exceptionally conducive for yoga and meditation practice. The caretaker Janaka lives right next door, and his wife spoilt us with the most delicious homecooked food. Insects were a bit of a problem some nights, but that is to be expected and a negligible inconvenience for a slice of rustic beauty.

    Leigh2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a simple and straightforward outrage that takes excellent advantage of a truly beautiful setting. To wake up here every morning was a thrill - above the clouds and in the hills The cottage itself is clean and simple and provides and excellent kitchen for cooking and several places to sit and enjoy the view. Janaka is a thoughtful and friendly caretaker, and the meals his wife cooks are excellent! He is full of ideas about places to walk to and visit around - there’s a lot to do here! Moragolla is a friendly village with a great grocers and an excellent barbershop! This place is much easier to get to than you imagine - I made it in a 3 wheeler from kandy in 40 minutes... I’ll be back

    Sri Lanka's first and only A - Frame Cabin the Hideout is your dream eco stay, up in the chilly mountains of Moonplains for travelers and backpackers who are looking to for a chilled out place to stay. Its located close proximity to many hiking trails, mountains, view points, waterfalls and many tourist attractions such as Horton plains, Lake Gregory, tea plantations and tea factories, Seetha Hindu temple, Victoria park, Haggla Botanical gardens, Nanu-oya railway Station, etc.
    This place is a unique A-Frame cabin which is built keeping minimalism in mind. The place is specifically built for adventurous travelers and backpackers who are looking for a chilled out place to stay. Please do not expect luxuries
    The neighborhood and the surrounding is mostly used for cultivation.
  • We stayed at the cabin on our first night in Sri Lanka. After a long but comfortable journey from the airport with Harshana - our amazing driver who Pubudu recommended (would highly recommend to anyone needing an airport transfer or tour - he’s the best!) we arrived at the cabin late at night. We loved how cute and cosy it was, but we didn’t appreciate it fully until the next day when the sun rose. My goodness! The light through that window is something else. If you’re looking for somewhere unique - this place is for you. Pubudu provided an amazing breakfast and organised a tuk tuk the next day to take us to the station. Absolutely wonderful place!

    Jade2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

    Sachin2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Shamika2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great night staying in this remote A Frame house. It's in the outskirts of Nuwara Eliya, right in the middle of tea fields. There's a rough dirt road to get to it, but our tuk tuk could handle it. The place isn't luxury, but we knew that going in. It's still very photogenic though. And Pubudu's hospitality was amazing! We would easily stay here again.

    Eric2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The best place I’ve stayed so far on this trip. Beautiful area, beautiful cabin and was also treated to a delicious dinner and breakfast. The place is an absolute good vibe. I spent the night here by myself and I can only imagine how incredible it would be to share this space with a loved one. The town Nuwara Eliya itself has also been one of the best places I’ve seen in Sri Lanka. Would highly recommend staying here. I will be back for sure.

    Joel2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful!the homeowner is very friendly and kindly,my clothes is dirty,they help me wash it,and one day I get up early to Horton,they prepare the breakfast to me, very thoughtful!

    Yuhan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived at this beautiful cabin after a very long drive, feeling tired it was an amazing feeling to be in such a relaxed environment with beautiful views. Pubudu and family were very accommodating, helping with all our questions, even arranging a Tuk Tuk to bring us some drinks as well as arranging a delicious meal cooked by mum, before we had an early night looking at the stars from our amazing view ! We would have loved to have explored more around the local area but did not have enough time, however pubudu gave us advice and also helped arrange a tour for us too. Would highly recommend staying here and would love to return, dec and Anna x

    Malik2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a true home from home. Sharmini and Mahendrenath were absolutely delightful hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Sharmini cooked authentic Sri Lankan meals on two nights of our stay, and we also ate one night at the Golf Club, which was high quality. The waterfalls at Bombourella were stunning, but a bit difficult to find.

    David2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We definately recommend This place for everybody! Place was very cosy and peaceful. It was not far from the city. Host and her family were very friendly and food was good. Very beautiful room with hot wather and amazing garden! Our Favorite place in Sri Lanka!

    Kaisa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We've had two absolutely amazing days in Nuwara Eliya, mostly due to Sharmini and Mahindral amazing hospitality. We learned so much about sri lanka culture and history with them. The food Sharmini and her help prepared for us was incredible and Mahindral took us to Hortons Plains and Tea factory with smile, tips and tricks and good discussions! The room is simple and clean, enough to keep you warm at night. Good water pressure :). The house is very nice with a cute garden with manyyyy plants and a bench to read a book and relax. Thanks again to you two, you make Sri Lanka a magical place!

    Margaux2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • Cecelia cottage is cozy, clean and a comfortable place in the beautiful Nuwara Eliya. It has carpeted floors because it is cold, hot hot water for bath, thick blankets, towels and everything you need to be comfortable. Their place is very close to the town - a 10min walk. Sharmini and her husband are heart-warming people and great hosts. We are glad to have met such wonderful people during our trip. Before traveling to Srilanka we had asked if they could book some train tickets for us to travel within Srilanka and it was very kind of them to help us get multiple tickets booked.

    Gajanan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

The room was clean and cosy. Little hard to find but it's in a central location to all the tourist attractions. We would definitely recommend.

  • Miss landlord and sister are super good. The house is very beautiful and I took a lot of photos. Also provided hot pot, super delicious. The best meal to eat on the trip.

  • Very good homestay, the owner is very hospitable, is the most satisfying night of our entire ten-day Sri Lankan trip, perfect and romantic. The next day, my son was a little uncomfortable and gave her medical services very friendly. The room is comfortable and clean, in the middle of the jungle, listening to the birds and flowers is a perfect experience. I am still relishing the delicious food that the homeowner is making.

  • The boss and sister are super good, the hot pot of the hotel is also very good, breakfast is still Chinese pancakes and porridge. In the evening, I was afraid that our cold store manager would have prepared a hot water bottle for us. The only thing that is not so good is that the room shower is a bit small, not very good to adjust the water temperature, others are super

  • Very beautiful homestay, very responsible store manager, giving people the feeling that not only accommodation, It can also help you in many parts, it is very friendly to Chinese people, and the food is also in line with Chinese appetite.

  • Great bed and breakfast! Located on the hill, the environment is beautiful and the air is fresh. The rooms are clean and tidy, the beds are large and the duvets are warm and light. Arriving at the B&B, you can enjoy afternoon tea immediately, dinner with hot pot, reasonable price, breakfast with scallion cake, tea eggs and tomato egg noodles, very warm heart. The owner of the home is warm and thoughtful and highly recommended. Only the goolemap navigation failed to find the homestay. After a few turns, the driver found it after calling. However, this does not affect the excellence of the hotel.

    Bing2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Because the landlord is a national, communication is barrier-free. On the day I went, she was not there. It was the one that Mr. Chen received. The gentleman was very nice. The hot pot that he ate at his house in the evening saved my Chinese stomach. Except that the bath water is not too hot at night, the others are very good, the most important thing is that there is a duvet to cover ~

    David2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Let me start from the beginning. Reaching out to the Resort was a bit of a challenge since the resort is located right next to the river and the city of Kitulgala is a hilly place. So obviously you would need to get down steep and sharp from the mountain. Beware for those people who have heavy vehicles, you might get stuck in the slope getting up like we did. But the kind people from the resort helped us tirelessly to get up and running back again. Now, going back to the stay, was really wonderful and is a beautiful nature resort in making for the future. If you are here in Kitulgala, then you are probably here for adventure sports. Highly recommend booking adventure sports with them as well, and I mainly recommend doing canoeing. Pasindu and his team were wonderful in taking care of our safety and making sure that we had a fantastic time. Absolutely would stay here again. Pros: great location, great people, great adventure team. Cons: resort in construction at the time of writing, bathroom locks didn't work, door locks were loose and feeble. Verdict: a definite yes mainly for their adventure team and location.

    Comfortable large one bedroom in our lovely house with modern facilities, including hot-water. Walking distance to all Nuwara Eliya sights. Fits four (2 separate bedrooms provided) and is located just 300 meters from the Lake. We can also recommend a good tour/car operator to Hortain Plains. It's your home away from home so please feel free to bring what you like to cook in the kitchen too. Breakfast not included.
    We are located within a walking distance from downtown Nuwara Eliya, the Gregory Lake, Grand Hotel, Nuwara Eliya Golf Club, Hill Club is easily walkable or Tuk Tuk ride away. Pedro Tea Estate where you can experience a great tea making tour is less than 10 minutes ride.
  • Room was clean, simple and minimalistic. We had a really good sleep at night as the natural cool weather was great and the bed & blanket were comfortable! If you need to shower, the heater takes about 5-10 mins to heat up which wasn’t a problem at all. Charles’ mother was very cute, friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed talking to her. The place is located close to Gregory Lake and Super K grocery store. It gets cold at night if you’re out so do bring along a sweater to keep you warm.

    Joash2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend this homestay! My partner and I stayed for 2 nights and wished we had longer. The family had excellent local tips and the room was great value for money, especially compared to all the expensive hotels in town. Only a short walk to Gregory lake or tuk tuk into town. We only wish we got to spend more time with the family who were very hospitable, we were out most of the day trying to fit all the tourist activities in. We got engaged at the top of lovers leap waterfall, this town will always be special to us and have amazing memories. A must stay in Nuwara Eliya!

Unfortunately, his old Mom is sick now, hope she will feel herself better. Thanks the perfect-english-speaking girl for carring. The house is very clean and comfortable, much more better than in hotel.

His helper (I forgot his name) was also very helpful and was always there if need be. If you're ever in Nuwara Eliya, I recommend you to stay here, you won't be disappointed. When you wake up in the morning, it is a sight to behold.

    Royce2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The hotel room is very good, the facilities are very good, there is an oversized balcony to see the scenery, but unfortunately we arrived very late, the next day did not light up, so did not have the beautiful scenery. The landlord was very welcoming and very friendly, because we were going to Horton Plains, we were leaving at 5 in the morning, and the landlord provided breakfast for us at 4:30, thank you very much!

    Newly built apartment with modern facilities. Just a couple minute walk away from the city centre and Gregory Lake of Nuwara Eliya. Located in a quiet neighbourhood.
    Nice comfortable room with queensize bed with an attached private bathroom with shower(hot water) and also a washing machine. For the cold nights there is also a heater present.
    City centre, Victoria park/ Gregory Lake, Post Office is with walking distance. When needed I also can provide a taxi service/tour service to show beautiful places in and around Nuwara Eliya.
  • When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by our host. He offered us a walking trip through the city so we could get in touch with the area which we immediately took advantage of. The same day he also invited us for selfmade currys with rice and it was really relly delicious. We had some interesting conversations during dinner because his english was really good. The next day we got freshly brewed coffee in the morning. Unfortunately we only had one night together. I would defenitely recommend this apartment!

He took so much care of us, and even offered to teach us how to cook some delicious Sri Lankan dishes. The apartment is in a quiet area only 7 minutes walking to the center. The room is really comfy and full of light. Everything is very clean, and both the internet and the hot water work great. We would recommend everybody to stay in this place!!

  • Excellent location between the fields. Great and very warm hospitality by Pubudu and his family. A must visit. Total value for money. The cabins are very unique and totally worth an experience. Weather becomes extremely pleasant and sometimes chilling at night. So might need light woolen.

    Bhakti2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place is magnificent. Time stands still in the middle of a tea plantation. The accommodation is spacious and very pleasant. The view from upstairs is exceptional and the net is an experience to try. In short, we feel out of the world and out of time.

  • Best place to stay in Nuwara Eliya. Thoughtfully designed beside the tea plantations,it will give you a lifetime experience.Host was very quick to respnse and helped us to order pizza and overall very friendly.Must stay while passing by Nuwara eliya

    Shivendra Pratap2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Hideout Cabin is a great place if you are looking for a spot to relax and disconnect from the world. Its located off a beaten path so make sure you don't travel in a low clearance vehicle. Pubudu is a great host and is very quick to respond. He made sure we were comfortable and lives close to the cabins so hes always around if you need him. It rained alot the night we were there but it made it all the more cosier! It can get chilly so check the weather before heading out and dress accordingly. We stayed at the Yellow Cabin which can comfortably sleep 4 adults. The cabin is sufficient and has the basic necessities you need. Apart from location and great host they also have a cute security guard named Lucky :) hes a 4 legged doggo who stays by the cabins. Thats a plus point for me and I enjoyed having him around! Will definitely come back again!

    Zainab2020-02-13T00:00:00Z

  • Thanks so much to Pubudu and his family for our great experience! They did their best for making our short stay in their apt super-enjoyable. We had everything we needed and even more. The apt is clean, there is hot water, and lots of blankets saved us in a cold mountain night. The breakfast was super delicious, and served early, as we asked. And the views from this place are really exciting, especially in the early morning! Totally recommend!

    Yulia2020-01-17T00:00:00Z

    Paddyfield Hideaway is a small privately owned 'homestay', 40 minutes from Kandy, in the Central Highlands. Anyone seeking peace and quiet is welcome here. It is a relaxing and unpolluted haven not too far away from the busy towns of Kandy and Gampola. You'll see nice Paddy Fields worked by hereditary farmers, a small tea plantation, and jungles with exotic birds. It is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
    The first impression the hideaway makes on a visitor is not paddy fields but a lovely house set in a garden of beautiful flowers and a very green lawn. Enter the house, and then you see the reason for the name - a green paddy field attended to by a farmer at work surrounded by a flock of Egrets. Idyllic surroundings indeed. Guests have a choice of seasonal fruit and curried vegetables from our own garden. We also provide spring water from our own 'certified' deep tube well, and have our own generator in case of a power outage.
    This neighbourhood is utterly unique. You won't come across a single tourist and you will have the chance to interact with local jungle village people. There is a village close by which is totally devoted to drum making. There is also a Buddhist meditation centre half an hour's walk away.
  • I have stayed at the Octagon and in Paddyfield main house twice this year. The host family of Desmond, Naomi and children are wonderful people. My first trip, I travelled solo and felt completely comfortable and taken care of. The Octagon is a true treasure, and a place of solitude and retreating. The village is untouched by tourism making the experience truly authentic. Reaching the property is easy. The Colombo - Ella train stops in Gampola (one stop East of Kandy), and Octagon is short tuk tuk from Station. The space is large and unique. Bed is comfy. I was able to cook my own meals with basic kitchen set up. Breakfast and Naomi’s dinners are delicious. Emily and Desmond are super responsive. Desmond rides tuk tuk and was able to help with transportation. My second trip I brought my mom and dad. Desmond accommodated meals and taxis for us. Mom and dad loved Octagon so much they plan to come back next year. Last, I cant say enough about Desmond and his family. They are such loving people, I feel grateful to have spent time here during my time in Sri Lanka. Both Octogan and Paddyfield house provide an authentic experience in rural Sri Lanka you will never forget.

    Laura2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • When you are looking for a quiet and relaxing accomodation this is the perfect place. The view was amazing and everything was great. Thank you so much!

    Barbara2019-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Paddyfield Hideaway is an idyllic spot - spacious, neat and tidy, elegantly furnished and peaceful. My room had a gorgeous view of the paddyfield and jungle beyond with the chanting of the nearby Buddhist monks every evening and a variety of brightly-colored birds in the well-tended garden and in the paddyfield and woodland beyond. Our hosts, Desmond and Naomi, were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. A wonderful place and a perfect spot to relax and get away from it all!
