So serene and away from every annoyance of the modern world... which I guess isn't for some, but absolutely worth a visit for those seeking a few blissful days of peace! The surroundings are stunningly beautiful - views over lush jungle hills, a stream running through the property (perfect for heavenly dips) I stayed here alone for two nights (and on one night was the only guest!) but never felt lonely thanks to the absolute kindness and sweetness of the staff and the meditative qualities of my surrounds. Not to mention the company of two of the loveliest dogs, Raum and Morris, who escorted me to breakfast every morning, as well as on my rambles throughout the day. Special mention should be made to Waruna and Yumi, who although not at the centre during the time I stayed, welcomed me as a visitor to their fascinating antique store. I ended up staying five hours chatting and enjoying their company! I must also gush about the food, which was so fresh and delicious... thinking of the pancakes with coconut is making me drool on the keyboard.
I wouldn't recommend the Samadhi Centre for those simply seeking a place to come back to after rushing around all day ticking things off the tourist checklist... a) it's too far away (about 40 mins from the centre of Kandy) and b) you will not want to leave! Better to take you time and enjoy the wonderful experience that is Samadhi :)
