Customer reviews

9.8/10 (Average rating based on 2 reviews)

After reading mixed revies online, we were a bit hesitant to go ahead with this property but went with our intuitions anyway. The property is a 30 minutes drive from Kandy town and does not have any boards of signs of its existence. An unmarked detour leads to this lush property. The property is constructed beautifully in the most eco-friendly way to ensure the trees and nature remains. This airy property faces lake Victoria and has only 3 rooms which are tastefully furnished, has a lovely bathrooms with tub views of the pool and lake and an open shower that can turn interesting when it rains. They have two amazing staff ever ready to cater to your needs at any time of the day or night. We were so in love with the property that leaving it to go sightseeing was tough. It was home away from home for us. Our special thanks to Supuri & Pushpa for ensuring that we have the most amazing stay. Stay here to enjoy nature, forest sounds, amazing views and some ROMANCE.
