Jungle Tide guest house is the perfect place in Kandy for some peace and quiet relaxation. The food is excellent and the hosts are very friendly, accommodating and informative. I stayed in the bungalow and found it to be very comfortable. The pool is wonderfull and the views are great. I'm very happy we stayed there and would recommend it...

We stayed with Jerry and Sally for 4 nights at the very end of our 1 month long trip to Sri Lanka. It was the ideal place to ease us back into going home to the UK! The house and room we stayed in were very comfortable and spacious with door opening onto the veranda overlooking the garden. We really...

We've been to Jungle Tide a few times. It is lovely on the outskirts of Kandy. The house is beautiful and well worth a visit. The food that can be prepared for you is delicious and it is all good value. A beautiful home away from home.

We spent a week here recently and had a truly memorable time. Set in the hills above Kandy the views from the veranda outside our room were spectacular. Wild life of a friendly kind abound: take binoculars for the best views of exotic birds. The hospitality and support from Jerry and Sally - prior to and during our stay -...

We really enjoyed our stay at Jungle Tide, Sally and Jerry were wonderfully hospitable and our room (Purple coot) was spacious and airy. Sally & Jerry were a wealth of knowledge, they helped us plan trips and organised transport for us - so we felt well looked after and it was reassuring, having not been to Sri Lanka before. They...

We had a fantastic stay at JungleTide. Jerry and Sally made us and our kids feel like at home, the views from the property are beautiful and the climate 1000 m above sea level suited us very well. Food is great and varies between western and Sri Lankan style dishes. We stayed at a separate chalet/house which was very good...

We had such a fabulous stay with Sally and Jerry in this stunning location - the warmth of reception, the quality of food, accommodation and amenities was just the ticket for a relaxing, enjoyable and utterly rewarding visit to Sri Lanka. We will definitely be returning - thank you! (PS - The swimming Pool is amazing!)

We began our Sri Lankan travels here. Jungle Tide is perched on a hill-side at the end of a small road, half an hour up and out of Kandy. The views are breathtaking and the quiet and calm is an oasis of tranquility. Eagles, squirrels, monkeys, porcupines, mongoose and wild pigs enjoy it ! The Bungalow offers excellent, comfortable rooms,...

It was my first time to celebrate my birthday alone, somewhere away from my family and friends. But the Jungle Tide hosts (Jerry and Sally) made it extra special with a surprised cake during dinner.

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
