We stayed here for four nights with our three children aged 10, 13, 15 and found it to be one of the most friendly places to stay during our Sri Lankan holiday. The staff were chatty and helpful, offering to show the children the wild...More

Thank you for your very positive review. We all enjoyed your company as much as you did ours. One thing I forgot was to thank you for buying my ticket for the cricket match which we lost as all other matches!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff
Good selection of tours (we did 8a and had breath taking views in the remote knuckles range with no other tourists.)
Not keen on alcohol (we were pretty much told off...More

It was been pouring down in most parts of the island but news is that the rains will stop in the coming days with sunshine predicted in the Kandy region. Bare in mind that forecasts can be wrong but its looking from January onwards.
There are leeches around at this time but once the rain stops they will disappear. During rainy days we provide all our guests with leech socks and plenty of salt to keep them away. If it is raining then it is best to stay indoors and away from thick jungle.
Hope that answers all your quesitons.
