We had a lovely 4 nights here at the start of our 2 week tour of Srilanka. Blew us away. It's a 45min drive from Kandy up in the hills. The most tranquil place we have ever stayed. Rooms were huge and spread about the vast grounds, antiques from ancient Sri Lanka hand picked placed about the public areas and...

This is the best place I stayed in all my travels. Hands down. It's an hour outside of kandy, but absolutely perfect if you want a few days retreat in utter heaven. I had the best massage of my life here, went to a waterfall, and watched the stars and beautiful fire flies! The staff are so helpful and relaxed....

My husband and I enjoyed the most blissful 3 days at the Kandy Samadhi Centre, and would recommend it without reservation. It is truly a special place, where we instantly felt at peace among the staff and gorgeous but simple surroundings. Our room was earthy and beautiful, with a huge antique bathtub and stunning pieces of artwork. On arrival we...

I love everything about this place, especially the AMAZING rooms, which look straight out of Elle Decor magazine with antiques sourced by the Sri Lankan owner. The space, the nature, the rooms, everything is soooooo beautiful, peaceful, special, and unique. The staff were all so attentive, helpful, informative, and just lovely. Unfortunately I arrived with a respiratory infection and they...

If you are looking for a secluded, beautiful spot in the rainforest, with incredible food, great yoga classes, an exceptional staff, and authentic ayurvedic treatments, then this is your spot. The entire staff was at our service the entire stay. We had an incredible room that felt like we were in a castle. The decorations are beautiful, as the owner...

We have just seen the property on the website and thought it will be an amazing place. First of all its not in kandy. It's around 1 and half hour drive.The very first view was really disappointing as the person who called himself the manager was wearing untidy clothes and rest of the staff as well.There was no front desk...

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy city or just retreat into the sheer beauty Srilanka then Kandy Samadhi is it! Located a few kms away from Kandy it is a journey worth the destination. You can't find this place easily on a google map but waze.me will help you get to the Hulu...

I stayed 3 nights at the Samadhi Center in January and it was one of the top highlights of my trip through Sri Lanka - there really is something special about this place. The moment you enter you feel a deep sense of relaxation and good energy. The center is very well designed with tastefully selected and priceless antiques, the...

This place was recommended to us and maybe that's why our expectations were quite high. Our room was beautiful and we had a really good sleep in there. It COULD be the perfect place with all the tastefull antique interior and the surroundings, BUT the rest didn't come up with it at all. The food was kind of dissapointing. On...
