Sally and Jerry are warm, welcoming and helpful hosts who have thought through every detail to ensure their guests are comfortable in their beautifully designed homestay. The meals cooked by... read more Ranni, were delicious, the beds comfortable, the rooms spacious, with attractive silk curtains and bed covers (I was in the green room with doors opening onto the verandah with spectacular views). I was pleasantly surprised to find a good size swimming pool so far up this remote hillside, with a shower-room and kitchen full of ice-creams and cold drinks. After the south and Galle, I found Jungle Tide to be a lovely, easy going, relaxing place to stay. Transport was on offer whenever I needed it and I much appreciated Michael, the driver, taking me back to the airport in the evening.
What a wonderful place to stay. Something for everyone: walking in tea plantations, badminton and boules, swimming and sunning or just sitting and watching birds, Rani’s curries, Jerry’s home made... read more ice cream, Sally’s jams, chutneys and pies. And all such good value. We were so well looked after. Cannot recommend this beautiful property enough.
Peaceful and relaxing location close from Kandy, surrounded by infinite tea fields.
