Senani Bangalow is a beautiful colonial style bangalow with modern amenities on the hill of Nuwar Elia. Verry clean and stylish. We enjoyed the open view, herbal garden with rabits and chickens, but most of all friendly service and food. Fresh salads from the garden, barbecue, rice and carry... Delisious food were made with love and joy. Lavander tea and coffee on the rose terrace were so pleasant. Although bangalow close to the center it is very quiet and relaxing. Fireplaces and antique furniture creating such an ambient atmosphere. Their kings beds are so comfortable and cozy, made my sleep just wonderful. Thank you for unforgettable lovely weekend.

“Best Stay in Nuwara Eliya”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is my second stay at Senani Bungalow and both times the stay has exceeded my expectations. The bungalow is clean and neatly arranged. The food is very tasty and the garden area is beautiful as well. This particular trip we took with friends from the States and everyone had a wonderful visit. Cheers to you and your staff Wolfgang!

“ENCHANTING MOUNTAIN TOP RETREAT IN THE CLOUDS IN NUWARA ELIYA”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

For some travelers, a transition from cooler climes to the tropics is great, for others, having spent time on the hot tropical beaches requires a cooling period before going home. In either case, at the beginning or at the end of your stay in Ceylon, make sure you spend a few days with the wonderful and friendly folks in Senani Bungalow in Nuwara Eliya. It will be a respite overflowing with hospitality, great food, fresh air, sumptious and cozy beds, and so much more. We visited for several days with a family of four, including two young daughters. They were safe and happy the whole time, with lots of activities inside the familiar, cozy home, as well as in the wondrous, spectacular gardens (at no time did we turn on the television even once, nor play with any personal electronics or iPads!). Of course, with the girls well and safely occupied, this allowed mom and dad to catch up on their personal time, relaxation, and reading books, too! There are even on-premises accommodations for your driver, so everyone is looked after like family.

Senani Bungalow is a beautifully restored old colonial home atop a hillside in the mountains of Nuwara Eliya, one of the highest areas in Sri Lanka. Often you are above the clouds, and only see the tops of gorgeous rain forest mountain tops. Other times you get cooling showers mixed with azure blue skies and crisp breezes. The meticulously terraced flower gardens beckon for a fantastic home cooked breakfast amid the splashes of color and the myriad melodies of incredible song birds in the rose garden. The fresh herbs and vegetables on your plate were minutes before plucked from the organic vegetable garden. Everyone is ready with a smile and courteous helpfulness. Prema, who runs her kitchen like a well-oiled dynamo, smiles, scurries into the kitchen and brings you marmalade prepared by the owners from their own berry bushes, while the sweet aroma of lavender mingles with that of your piping hot morning coffee.

You just don't want to leave this idyllic venue, even though there are gads of things to see and do. As you sit in your private garden you see the mountains coming alive with cooking fires and bicycles and buses on the winding roads below. Senani Bungalow is somehow detached from the din, at the end of a quaint cul de sac, overlooking the bustle far below. Senani Bungalow is the kind of place to which you will always happily return. It's a place to recharge your batteries; indeed, a stay at Senani Bungalow lets you resume our normal lives with a fresh and positive outlook, and an eager desire to figure out the way to come back to Senani Bungalow and the wonderful staff as soon as possible! Do yourself a favor and get to know the loveley people at Senani Holiday Bungalow, and you will want to visit every year!

“Fantastic Stay, Fantastic Food”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

I stayed with a friend of mine at Senani in February, not knowing what I would experience.
This Colonial Holiday Bungalow is quite different from other bungalows in Nuwara Eliya
The Colonial ambient, the cleanness, the enormous big garden with its herbal
and vegetable sections incl. a small golf course, makes Senani very special. The Chief cook
Prema is outstanding. Her cuisine; very well prepared homemade food, mainly with vegetables
from the organic gardens of Senani. I am looking forward to book the entire bungalow with
my friends + family to share this wonderful experience with others.

“Great Hospitality & Fantastic Food”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

Good to see the bungalow getting a face lift and upgrade since my last visit. I was impressed with all the hard work put into the garden, with Dusica personally ensuring that there is a good choice of fresh food for the guests.

Talking about food, what a feast we had. It was really special. Hospitality from Wolfgang & Dusica, the owners was tremendous.

I am sure to plan the next holiday with my management team at Senani.

Keep up the good work.
