Top quality, additional to my 1st trip is they now have a wonderful swimming pool and resident hosts Sally and Jerry (most of the time, check for specifics if you want western food occasionally, and their wonderful company of course!). It all makes this a unique 'homestay' experience. The rooms are extremely well furnished and very clean, you have plenty...

Staying at Jungle Tide is like staying with relatives that you really like. It’s an English Homestay in Sri Lanka and we loved it here. It’s quite a bit of the beaten track, but that’s what we liked and came here for. We stayed in the big house and had one of the rooms with garden view. We loved the...

Wonderful guest house, Sally and Jerry have built a true planter's bungalow surrounded by tea with all the atmosphere and comfort of the olden days. Having been brought up on a tea plantation, this was indeed home from home. Sally and Jerry are wonderful hosts and the cooking is superb. The gardens and the views are astounding and nothing is...

What a gem! Kandy is hectic and noisy, luckily Jungle Tide is just far enough away to be completely removed from the hustle and bustle (about half an hours drive up into the hills above Kandy). It's a wonderfully welcoming family home where you will be treated to fantastic Sri Lankan food and hospitality, with just a pinch of quirky...

Thank you so much for the review, Lucie. You certainly got to know the local area which is as much a part of the magic as Jungle Tide itself. All the best. Jerry and Sally

We stayed with Sally and Jerry over Christmas and it was as if we were visiting family. We were traveling with my brother-in-law's family so we pretty much filled up the house. My husband and two children actually stayed in a small cabin in Sally and Jerry's garden. It was simple, clean and dirt cheap (they really should raise their...

Wow! What a brilliant review - what can we say?

Fantastic guest house! Sally and Jerry are wonderful hosts and the food is delicious (made by them or Rani). It's clean, the rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Each room has double opening doors onto a veranda which spans the length of the house. Its wonderfully relaxing with a spectacular view of the mountains, great selection of...

We were a group of 13 people who rented the house for a week. The location is fantastic, the rooms nice and the pool area was also good. It takes a little while to get to by TukTuk to Kandy but the surroundings and the view from the house made it worth it. The food was cooked in the house...

Dear Mimmi Thank you for this very helpful review and we apologise for the lack of variety in the meals available especially breakfasts. We have taken this on board and talked with our staff to ensure future guests staying several days get more varied meals. Normally we are there and alternate cooking with our staff so guests can have western...

Sally and Jerry have built a beautiful home and graciously welcome you at Jungle Tide. The grounds are set in the hills above Kandy and it's there that you will find tranquility.

Great personally built development at the last stop in the road as it winds into the mountains. Terrific hospitality and attention from the owners. Great craik. Endless walks in the tea plantation and visits to Kandy easy. One needs a driver. And the access road will be completely redone to Lankan carpeting standards in 2017

Many thanks Richard. Just to add that for guests who don't have their own driver we can arrange transport at competitive rates. And guests who book directly through our website get a free pickup or dropoff from/to Kandy train station or any other Kandy location. Best wishes, Jerry and Sally

We stayed 5 nights, the food was amazing and the couple who run the place have some great stories. Real peaceful homely atmosphere and a lovely swimming pool. There's also a bakery a short walk away through a tea plantation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jungle Tide is a British owned and managed homestay; a place to relax in the real Sri Lanka, away from the tourist spots yet still only forty minutes from Kandy city centre. Up here in the cool hills A/C is not necessary... Wake up to the sound of birdsong and marvelous mountain views. Stroll in the gardens, or take a longer walk in the surrounding hills. Swim in the pool, or just relax. All services, bed linen and towels as well as driver accommodation and Wi-Fi are included in the price on a B&B basis and our staff, Martin and Rani, will look after you superbly. ... more   less
