    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    The house is set in a tea estate with spectacular views across to the Knuckles Range. Wildlife, and especially birds, are plentiful around the house and garden and there are excellent local walks or, for the more adventurous, trekking possibilities. Jungle Tide is the perfect place to relax and see the real Sri Lanka.

    The centre of Kandy, a World Heritage City, is only 40 minutes' drive away and here there are excellent shopping and other urban facilities as well as major cultural and tourist attractions such as the Temple of the Tooth and the famous annual Perahera festival. Other important attractions including Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and Pinnawella Elephant Orphanage can easily be done in a day trip.

    How to get there
    Airport: Colombo: 120.0 km
    Railway: Kandy: 11.0 km
    Nearest airport is Bandaranaika International Airport, Colombo, from which it is a four hour drive to the house. We recommend King's Rent-a-Car as a reliable company. It is best to hire vehicle and driver unless used to Sri Lankan driving habits! Tel (+94) 112 875 063 e-mail krcs@sltnet.lk The driver will need to phone ahead for directions on the final part of the journey as the house is situated in a rural part of the hills above Kandy. Further details will be provided on confirmation of booking.

    Alternatively Kandy can be reached by inter-city bus or train from the centre of Colombo as well as many other towns in Sri Lanka and a vehicle and driver hired there for the journey up to the house.

The journey to Jungletide is a whole adventure in itself, the pot holed road snaking high in the hills behind Kandy. The location a mixture of jungle and tea plantations. The owners organised a taxi for us from the airport in Negombo, and the housekeepers arranged a tuk tuk when we wanted to go into Kandy(. 30mins approx) and we... more

Used beautifully designed Jungle Tide as a base for hiking, visits to Kandy attractions and safari park further afield. Recommend Tea museum and plantations on the road to Kandy as well as temple visits, botanical gardens and Kandy dancing in the city itself. Also visited great colonial era pubs and restaurants, in Kandy including Royal Bar, Queen's and Helga's Folly. more

Originally we were to stay for two nights at Jungle Tide but due to some other commitments we stayed only one night. Our only regret is not staying at least another night at this exceptional bungalow. This is an excellent, comforting and cool retreat. A great location for walking and trekking. The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. The bungalow... more
