I stayed here for 2 nights on my honeymoon and it was perfect! It's an absolute Oasis, which is rare being on 10 minutes drive from Kandy. The breakfast is delicious and the owner made us feel like it was our own home! We were there for New Year's Day in April and when most shops were closed, he let...

I came here with my wife for 2 nights right after landing in Sri Lanka. This is a nice house with big rooms and modern bathrooms. The location is great as not too far from Kandy but very very quiet. Great to have excursions in the morning and chill by the pool the rest of the day. The breakfast is...

We stayed there during our Sri Lanka holidays for 2 nights. The house has three rooms and is on a hill close to the main activities in Kandy (15 min to the Botanical garden, the temple or the train station). The architecture is beautiful and the gardens are lovely. It is a peaceful atmosphere. We had the small room which...

We had two wonderful nights here, a calm haven to relax in. Barbara and her husband could not have been more helpful. The place is spotless with great attention to detail, really perfect. The breakfast was a feast and all home cooked, even the warm bread. We also had supper one night and it was delicious, probably our best meal...

We spent 2 weeks travelling through Sri Lanka on our honeymoon, including 3 nights at Baramba house - which were incredible. Barbara already has so many great reviews but its impossible not to add to them after our stay. Her place is an easy tuk-tuk ride from the town centre but feels a world away. The rooms (3 in total)...

My husband organised this exceptional accommodation in Kandy during the Perahera Festival. We arrived very late from the Colombo airport on a Friday evening and made arrangements with Barbara for a driver to take us to Baramba House . We were warmly greeted by Barbara and Loku, and enjoyed the general ambiance immediately, with soft lighting, frogs croaking and beautiful...
