We stayed here for two nights this week. Amazing location and unique accommodation in the middle of the jungle. It truly was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. Great scenery and walks, you fall asleep to the sound of running water and the wildlife around you. Just a couple of warnings; this hotel is truly remote, the...

It is very shocking to see this "Centre" received so many good ratings. In my opinion it is not worth the price it is charging (>USD100) at all, given its super basic amenities and bad location. Be very careful if you decide to chose this hotel for the following reasons: 1. Location: It is located deep in the jungle and...

wow. Wow. and WOW. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and stumbled across the Samadhi Centre online. We spent the day at the Sirigiya and then took a bus/tuk tuk/taxi combo to the Centre. We were greeted by the redonkulously friendly, attentive and professional staff and dug right into the terrific buffet. We were shown to our room...

We wanted somewhere nice to stay in Kandy and this place had rave reviews. We decided to stay here for a night and it was a terrible mistake. For a start, the location sucks so badly. This is not even Kandy proper, it's an hour drive from Kandy! Unless driving up winding mountain roads at night are your idea of...

Several guides and the website say this centre is vegetarian and no alcohol which is not the case? They had beer and wine Our only complaint is that everything felt damp including the bed and sheets. Great food.

You only live once, so you must experience this place. The whole place is a work of art. We stayed here 2 nights on our honeymoon. The first day we stayed in and enjoyed the place. The hotel and staff are impeccable. The waterfalls downstairs, the massage and steam bath, the climbs to the room, the furniture and decoration pieces...

She was great at helping us plan our trip from advising us on transport options to the hotel and costs, (tuk tuk 1500rupee van 2000rupee - we got the tuk tuk there and van back, well worth the extra 500 for the...

We stayed in the Samadhi Centre during the monsoon season in July for eight nights with our two little kids. The resort is situated about 40 mins away from Kandy in the middle of jungly nature. The road to the ressort is narrow but newly made therefore easily accessible based on the driver knowing the final destination. As we booked...

Really its about the ambience of the place and if you need to relax and just stop thinking/working etc this is the place to do it. It's close enough to Kandy to do day trips but far enough away for peace. The staff were wonderful including the wonderful greeting we had from Hannah (the dog). Yoga and massage are offered,...
