Guava house is located on the borders of the Sri Lankan hill country. It’s within easy reach of the famous elephant orphanage (about one hours drive), and close to the ancient capital Kandy (one and half hour drive). Day trips to a "up country" tea estate can be arranged.
  • Guava House is an absolute piece of paradise. If you are keen on visiting Sri Lanka's inland activites, this is a great base and a magnificent environment. The housekeepers Jeyanthi and Suddhartha are super-warm and welcoming. The house is very clean and accommodating. The nature around the house, the jungle, the pool, the house; everything is simply magical. We literally ran back to the house after everyday's activities and wished that we had more time to enjoy the great food and the pool. Would go back any day :)

    Dario2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and Zane have been great hosts. Their place is extremely clean and perfect for nature lovers. The local breakfast and dinner prepared by their cook was delicious. The coffee by Zane from beans in their backyard is aromatic. The day trips to Srigiriya and Nuwara Eliya seemed short with a comfortable car and trustworthy driver Herath arranged by them. We hope to have another stay soon.

    Pinky2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • It can hardly be put into words, it is so beautiful with Arjuna and his wife Sanne. Pure hospitality. Magic Mountain location. The pool .... everything was great. Better stay a few days !! Edda and Nicolas

    Edda & Nicolas2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed a three day stay at Arjuna's place. The house, room, garden, view and pool are all fantastic and very relaxing, and we ended up spending all of our time enjoying the surroundings and the views. We didn't even leave the place - just for some walks in the area which is beautiful and very green, and down to the little town for some snack, icecream and good local food.

    Ida2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • It’s all in the name: Tranquility summarizes this place well. If you are looking for a relaxed and quiet place about 50 minutes from Kandy with a beautiful pool and garden, delicious breakfast and dinner (when requested) and super sympathetic hosts, this is where you should go.

    Aishah2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Delicious food and beautiful surrounding! Arjuna and Zane were great hosts and we really enjoyed meeting them. Arjuna helped organize a hike for us when we got there as it would not have been possible to do self guided hikes. We hope to come back some day!

    Jackie2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We have found super nice hosts and made us feel at home. The national breakfast after a few laps in the beautiful pool was the best. If necessary, the Tuck Tuck stood in front of the door. We were able to discuss our tour and plan and got a special tour in the spice garden. All in all, the perfect start to our Sri Lanka tour. Thank you Zane and Arjuna, very much again!

    Gabi2019-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • All tourists from Russia and other Russian-speaking countries! This villa is just a space! Firstly, even compared to 5-star hotels in Sri Lanka, there is perfect cleanliness! Secondly, the house is huge and full of air! Despite the fact that the owners live in the same house, you do not interfere with each other! On the contrary, it seems that you are visiting your Sri Lankan friends! And what a charming dog they have !! Thirdly, the incredibly beautiful (and perfectly clean) pool and the area around it! You can watch the beautiful birds, chipmunks and other wildlife! Fourthly, after a week traveling through Sri Lanka, we finally managed to taste the national cuisine! The villa has a great cook! It is really very tasty and quite reasonable money! And Zane brand coffee is a real miracle - in Sri Lanka, figs will drink normal coffee ... The villa is located on a picturesque plantation. Zane will be happy to show you his possessions, tell you about every plant and fruit growing there! In general, if we had the opportunity to stay longer, we would gladly do it! Many thanks to the owners!

  • This hotel stayed for one night! The room is clean! Free tea, coffee, water! A trifle, but nice))) The hotel is located across the street from the elephant nursery. Very comfortably! On the ground floor there is a cafe, you can eat tasty and not expensive! The only negative is that free parking is indicated, but they took money from us. Good hotel, recommend it!

    Nataliia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I arrived 3 hours earlier than check in time, the host sent me on a drive around looking at the tea factory, a spice garden and I was able to bathe and feed an elephant while I waited. The room was clean and exactly what I needed. It is modern and has air conditioning. The next day they organised a drive to Sigiriya for me. Outstanding hospitality. Highly recommended! 10/10

    Ash2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location for the elephant shelter! Literally across the road. The room was clean and large. With TV and air conditioning. Breakfast is very hearty and delicious! I thank the owner for the warm welcome!

    Marek2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We would have loved to stay longer. Ravi and my boyfriend and I had a lot to share. He knows about Ayurveda which is an really beautiful teaching. He's really there to share thoughts and get to know other cultures, and let us in inside the Srilankan culture. Beautiful, pure, first day. No bullshit. :) Thanks a lot Ravi and Rebekah. Kind regards, Brent and Fleur.

    Fleur2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The stay with Ravi and his family was amazing. Such an oasis in the middle of the jungle with delicious (vegan) food. Rabid wife Rebecca and his mother cooked very well mostly from their own garden. One day Munaweera made a tour with through her ancient kitchen. In the evening and morning you can relax to jungle sounds and nature.

    Robin2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you wanna experience the local life in the jungle this is your place for sure. We had such an amazing few days with Ravi and his wife Rebecca. Their house is in the Jungle surrounded by fresh fruits and coconut what you can taste as part of the tasty breakfast cooked by Rebecca. One day Ravi’s mother took us on a really interesting little tour around their house and showed us the fresh spices, herbs, coffee beans and fruits. Amazing how much knowledge they have about everything. We had so interesting conversations about Sri Lanka and the everyday local life. They were extremely helpful all the time with anything we needed. I cannot recommend this place more. You can really have a taste of the real Sri Lanka here! Thank you for you guys, it was an amazing experience!

    Dániel2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect outstanding hospitality. We felt like we were part of the family. There is smiling and kind Rebecca, who is red so many books and whose father is a writer. It was always interesting to talk with her. Ravi is expert about Ayurveda. Do not miss his massages, witch you can take in the comfort at their home. Next door are living Ravis brother family, who works in hospital. His beautiful sons became friends with our daughter. They were having a lot of fun playing together. Also Ravis parents are living near. They are teachers in local school. Ravis mother Munaweera is so sweet and always happy to greet you at her traditional home, showing traditional method of cooking, it was very interesting. The place is in the jungle but safe. In the middle of greenery and sounds of nature. The food Rebecca and Munawera make is pure, healthy and tasty. Wifi is very good, when you need to work. Kids love there. We were very inspired about their minimalistic and simple living in harmony with nature. Do not hesitate to book.

    Epp2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • In the absence of Ravi, I was welcomed in a super friendly way by his mother, who accompanied me to the great house at the end of a "dead end". A real jungle palm dream! Ravi's wife and dogs & cats <3 greeted me there, all of which are not pushy! After a short walk around the area and a restful night, there was an excellent Sinhala breakfast with rice, curry, grated coconut, pineapple and papaya. For that alone I would love to drop by every morning! Nice to have met you (o:

    Jill2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 nights in Ravi's house. The house is very nice and quiet. Right on the jungle. Super beautiful nature all around. It was our first accommodation in Sri Lanka and perfect to get there first. Upon request we were picked up by a driver directly at the airport. The communication in advance and on site was great. We were warmly welcomed. Ravi's wife, Rebeka cooked us delicious. Tuk tuk drivers were organized and Ravi took the time to answer our questions. We visited him at his work, an Ayurvedic demonstration garden. You're right in the middle of locals. The room / bathroom is simple (cold water). We felt very comfortable. Thank you Ravi and Rebeka :) We had a great stay.

    Inna2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ravi and Rebecca are wonderful people, and their home is in such an amazing place, too. Rebecca's breakfast was always good, and we had a good time talking and playing with each of them. I hope I can come back some day.

  • Really lovely place, beautiful rooms, nice pool and just a nice vibe. But it was very hard to find, there were no signs or anything.. the housekeeper was funny and helped us a lot

    Lena2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked the villa. Located on top of a mountain - the view is amazing. We occupied one room. The owner lives on the first floor. The owner is unobtrusive, but always ready to help. He offered dinner, offered places to visit. To Kandy 30 minutes, to the Botanical Garden 25 minutes by bike. A 7-minute drive to a supermarket and cafe. A place for those who want to enjoy the silence, beautiful views and the absence of neighbors. Spent a week here and did not want to leave. Thanks for the hospitality!

    Tatiana2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Its just awesome , Anjana was very quick in responding to the needs . Kumara the care taker was very kind and friendly and cooked us good dinner and breakfast. The villa had breathtaking views and a great infinity pool. Make sure your car has a great power as the road to the villa is very sloppy. The map given in airbnb is wrong , any one can use these directions through google maps for the place nearby to it - 7.325471,80.561531

    Tinn2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great view and pool. The hospitality is amazing and Kumara is a very nice and welcoming man. The only thing is the small hike up if your car doesn’t make it up the incline and the bugs . But you’re In the jungle pretty much so you have to expect it . It was well worth it and will recommend it to anyone

    Removed from the bustle of Kandy and nestled in a tea plantation, the Octagon was built using sustainable methods by local craftsmen. Conveniently situated close to ancient temples and jungle villages, we are only 45 minutes from Kandy. The Octagon is now fully equipped for self catering with a gas hob, fridge and microwave. . They can also request delicious Sri Lankan meals cooked by Naomi. The cost of lunch/dinner is 800 rupees per meal. There is also a take-away a five minute walk away!
    The Octagon is a beautiful eight sided building, perched within the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It overlooks its own private tea plantation, and is perfect for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet. A perfect spot for yoga, meditation, reading and writing. Set in the midst of a tea plantation, the Octagon is surrounded by beautiful native wildflowers and the call of birdsong will simply take your breath away:) For those seeking a place of seclusion (writers, artists, yogis, spiritualists or plain tea drinkers!) the Octagon is ideal. For those of you seeking evening entertainment and bright lights this is not the place for you perhaps, unless you need somewhere to catch your breath. Many guests have enjoy interesting dinner table conversations with Richard Murphy, well known Irish poet , who resides in his own cottage on the property. Richard has a host of interesting facts and stories about this beautiful Island. When Richard was a boy he was brought here by his father who acted as the last British Mayor of Colombo in 1935. Ancient paths lead adventurous walkers and locals to nearby jungle villages, where you have the chance to interact with the friendly locals and catch a glimpse the 'real' Sri Lanka. Close to The Octagon, one thousand year old temples lie waiting for you to explore alone as you will often find that you are the only tourist lucky enough to have stumbled upon this hidden treasure. The wonderful botanical gardens of Peridinya are twenty minutes away. The origins of the Botanic Gardens date as far back as 1371 when King Wickramabahu III ascended the throne and kept court at Peradeniya near the Mahaweli river. The bussling tourist centre of Kandy, with the famous Temple of the Tooth, is still within 45 minutes drive of our location. The city boasts luxury hotels and spas which are a pleasant stop-gap option en-route to The Octagon, your own rural heaven.
    The Octagon is set in a very remote location and provides the perfect destination for those looking to enjoy the 'real' Sri Lanka. This is a gorgeous structure, far from the beaten track, with views over the surrounding valley with farmland and wilderness for as far as the eye can see. We are a forty minute drive from the centre of Kandy, tuktuks (local moot-taxis) are easily available. The Octagon is close to many beautiful and rarely visited ancient temples, and is surrounded by native jungle villages, including one village totally devoted to drum-making.
  • Beautiful space! Stayed 5 days and could have stayed forever. The best getaway in Sri Lanka we had. Desmond was a great host and was so attentive. Would stay again!

    Kayla2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • A great home away from civilization to relax from the hustle and bustle. The location is better to look at AppleMaps.

    Ekaterina2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Octagon offers a lot of space, wonderful garden and terrace. It is perfect to rest and have a privacy. The temperature was very pleasant even in February, so no need of AC, (it lays 500m above sea level). The caretaker Desmond offers delicious breakfast and dinner and is very helpful and friendly. It is not easy to find the house, however Desmond guides the driver successfully. We are so satisfied there, that we would like to come again.

    Monica2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot recommend this place enough! So spacious and stylish and peaceful! Amazing breakfast provided by the wonderful Desmond and great advice on what to do in the area.

    Ellen2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • It is our third time staying at the Octagone! Beauty and peace. we absolutely love it! we shall come back and visit again🌸

  • We had a really good time at Rajithas cottage. Everything is nice and clean and the breakfast was super-delicious. Communication and check-in were very easy.

  • What a beautiful tranquil place, was exceptional, very clean, beautiful views. They couldn't be more helpful with arranging transport from the airport to guiding us around Kandy, would thoroughly recommend to anyone staying in Kandy, it is just outside of the main city but offers you the peace and tranquility away from the hectic city life.

    Mike2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The host let us extend our stay at his place. He was so nice of doing it for us. As I have mentioned on my other review this place is offering nothing but the "BEST" in all aspects.

    Mary Grace2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • "Amazed and delighted " that's how we will describe this place. If you wanted to be welcomed like a family stay here. Just in case your wondering if you will be safe put this place first. If you're into clean bed sheets and superb mattress to sleep on this place has it all. Just wondering if you would want to cook, this place equipped with cooking utensils (sparkling clean). Don't worry about the weather, this place has a cool weather and truly enjoy the view from the balcony while having a tea or coffee. At night time "stars" are above you with flying fireflies on the trees . Oh they have great service of transfer and food too. It's just perfect. We are working online and guess what this place has a fiber internet connection..No interruptions at all. We already plan our next trip here next time. ..

    Mary Grace2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you very much for your home, had a great time there! The house has everything you need, everything is straightforward - tea, toothbrushes, a razor, slippers ... :) and much more, so many beautiful details and excellent service that it seemed like we were in Europe, not Sri Lanka: ) met us with coconuts, the room had free water, 6L, a great balcony where you meet the dawn, all this on the mountain, no way on foot, everything is there by car or tuk tuk. We hired a Tuker knock on arrival by train, and he drove us everywhere, very convenient and cheap !! Nearby there is a botanical garden, be sure to go! There are monkeys, birds and amazing nature! Stayed for three days in this house, I liked everything very much!

    Iuliia2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We went for the place as it was in a quiet place bit away from the city and we absolutely loved it. It's a really cute located in a beautiful area spot. Perfect for a group of friends/couples/families with children. Rajitha was super helpful and kind. Highly recommend it and would definitely go back there again. Cheers!

    Julia2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Rajithas place is more than amazing. Its truly the best place I've stayed at in Sri Lanka and for a very reasonable price. The hospitality and helpfulness were out of this world, from the host to the house keeper and the family tuk tuk-driver. I accidentally came one day too early, but they soon solved my mistake. The place is modern, spacey and privately located. If you need some time for yourself in the midst of hectic traveling, this is a perfect place to recharge your energy. 10/10!

    Nadine2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is my BEST stay ever in the 25+years of traveling! Unbelievably amazing in ALL aspects. Communication prior and within my stay was perfect. I received the warmest welcome ever in my life! The house is beyond perfect! Stylish, cozy, clean and welcoming. The area around the house is immaculate: beautiful, clean and creative. If you stay in Kandy this is the best place you’ll ever find. Recommended 200%.

  • The place was lovely and clean, with easy access to the train station nearby and plenty of transport. Prasad and his wife were wonderful to us!

    Matthew2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Prasad is an incredible host. He was so good at communicating and anticipating my needs. His English is good. He helped me in so many ways. He took me to the nearby train station to get my ticket; gave me rides to and from Kandy when he was going; arranged a private yoga class for me; made food at my request. I felt like part of his family. They are all so nice. It was such a relief to me to come to this lovely, new, sparkling clean room to recuperate for a few days after so much traveling. Strong WiFi so I could get things done. He’s building more rooms so there’s construction going on. It will be really nice when he’s done. I like how close it is to the Botanical Gardens. Highly recommended!

    Kandy, Central Province, Sri Lanka

    Paddyfield Hideaway is a small privately owned 'homestay', 40 minutes from Kandy, in the Central Highlands. Anyone seeking peace and quiet is welcome here. It is a relaxing and unpolluted haven not too far away from the busy towns of Kandy and Gampola. You'll see nice Paddy Fields worked by hereditary farmers, a small tea plantation, and jungles with exotic birds. It is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
    The first impression the hideaway makes on a visitor is not paddy fields but a lovely house set in a garden of beautiful flowers and a very green lawn. Enter the house, and then you see the reason for the name - a green paddy field attended to by a farmer at work surrounded by a flock of Egrets. Idyllic surroundings indeed. Guests have a choice of seasonal fruit and curried vegetables from our own garden. We also provide spring water from our own 'certified' deep tube well, and have our own generator in case of a power outage.
    This neighbourhood is utterly unique. You won't come across a single tourist and you will have the chance to interact with local jungle village people. There is a village close by which is totally devoted to drum making. There is also a Buddhist meditation centre half an hour's walk away.
  • I have stayed at the Octagon and in Paddyfield main house twice this year. The host family of Desmond, Naomi and children are wonderful people. My first trip, I travelled solo and felt completely comfortable and taken care of. The Octagon is a true treasure, and a place of solitude and retreating. The village is untouched by tourism making the experience truly authentic. Reaching the property is easy. The Colombo - Ella train stops in Gampola (one stop East of Kandy), and Octagon is short tuk tuk from Station. The space is large and unique. Bed is comfy. I was able to cook my own meals with basic kitchen set up. Breakfast and Naomi’s dinners are delicious. Emily and Desmond are super responsive. Desmond rides tuk tuk and was able to help with transportation. My second trip I brought my mom and dad. Desmond accommodated meals and taxis for us. Mom and dad loved Octagon so much they plan to come back next year. Last, I cant say enough about Desmond and his family. They are such loving people, I feel grateful to have spent time here during my time in Sri Lanka. Both Octogan and Paddyfield house provide an authentic experience in rural Sri Lanka you will never forget.

  • When you are looking for a quiet and relaxing accomodation this is the perfect place. The view was amazing and everything was great. Thank you so much!

    Barbara2019-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Paddyfield Hideaway is an idyllic spot - spacious, neat and tidy, elegantly furnished and peaceful. My room had a gorgeous view of the paddyfield and jungle beyond with the chanting of the nearby Buddhist monks every evening and a variety of brightly-colored birds in the well-tended garden and in the paddyfield and woodland beyond. Our hosts, Desmond and Naomi, were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. A wonderful place and a perfect spot to relax and get away from it all!

  • I spent 2 weeks in the lovely chalet. Loved every minute of it! It is very close bu the main house, but far enough to make me feel as i am in the jungle on my own:) Will try to not repeat all the other reviews because they are 100% real. I am digital nomad, so i had to work almost every day - the internet was fast and reliable, and the sounds and views of the nature around me were so inspirational! Sakula is great host, always helpful and ready to answer any Q you may have, even he was quite busy with his another property in Kandy. The area/village around the house is very quite, local feel, i was the only one foreigner, and i enjoyed that. Definitely recommend!

  • Absolutely do not miss this place if you're coming to Sri Lanka. It's a Sri Lankan jungle paradise. Great food, fantastic room and stunning views. Sakula is a great guy and super helpful. Will definitely be coming back!

  • We stayed at Sakula for 1 week, it is an exceptional place with exceptional staff, we are very well taken care of (hearty breakfasts, meals and dinner) There is also a nice pool to cool off and the place is very beautiful. Sakula is busy finding us a tour guide to see Lion's Rock and Buddhist temples, we had the chance to see an elephant thanks to him, there is also a SPA. I add that Sakula off put the fact that it is a very good host, it also helps the stray dogs of Sri Lanka which is a big problem there, it is a very human person, we highly recommend this person! A wonderful stay!

  • Great hospitality, food was served extra special as we couldn’t eat the spicy foods. Spa treatments were the greatest. Elephant trip was personal, guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. No rush to do anything. Relaxing by the pool, numerous superb spa treatments, herb garden on site, eductional tours, and friendly animals, (dogs & cats). Staff and family were very kind and courteous. Meet other interesting guests from all over the world. Too much to mention...

  • German text is to be found below Introduction We had a nice stay at Sakula. Already the pickup at the Rambukkana train station was uncomplicated and was carried out by himself for a small fee (6-8 USD) in a private car. The drive took about 20 minutes. After arrival there is a pot of tea to welcome. Accommodation in general Sakulas is a beautiful view of the rice fields. If you want to use the pool and sun loungers to relax. The adjacent road into the jungle offers beautiful impressions and photo opportunities. I would recommend a short walk through the rice fields here. Sakula offers a spa and a cooking class through his mother. Since he is a jeweler, you can buy various stones on his website. Food Lunch / dinner prepared by him, which is prepared by a nearby restaurant. The prices are very good. Breakfast is prepared by his family (eggs, toast, sausage, coconut rotti, jam, fruit). Drinks can be at any time from Sakula or his family. The central point of the accommodation is the small lodge with a kitchen where you can eat and relax. Deluxe Room Unfortunately we had the deluxe room instead of the cottage, as this was already occupied. The deluxe room is large, has plenty of storage space and has a large bed, air conditioning, fridge, plug adapters, kettle, towels and two bottles of water. The bathroom is adjacent and has shower and toilet. If you want to take a hot shower, however, you should not use the boiler with plenty of forerunner. The bathroom is a bit small and does not look quite as nice through the concrete. In the evenings the chipmunks rumble from time to time on the roof, for which there is a central light switch at the entrance, which is intended to deter them. Environment and transfer Not far from Mawanella, which can be reached by foot (1.5-2 km) or when required by Tuk Tuk. We were at the Elephant Freedom Project, which can be reached in 15 minutes by Tuk Tuk. For this we have resorted to Sakula, who organized a driver, which he himself supports, at fair prices (less than 100 Rps per 1 km drive). All in a very nice and open host! PS: Anyone who has not tasted jackfruit so far - Sakulas father had prepared a plate to say goodbye. ---------- German text introduction We had a nice stay at Sakula.

  • Green Home is a fantastic place to stay.We were well looked after the minute we entered . Nothing was a problem and all our needs were catered for by the staff. The breakfasts were amazing, as was the view overlooking the rice fields and jungle. We definitely recommend this place to stay! This was a unique and special stay for us. The air conditioned and spacious room was cool and comfortable. Thank you Sakula!

  • Great stay, it was that good I came back a 2nd time!

    Alice2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kanchana's place is beautiful and secluded, but a short ride away from the Elephant zoo and other tourist attractions. Its also a quick Tuk Tuk journey from the bus and train station. My room was bright and airy with an amazing view over the paddy fields. Kanchana's parents are very kind and generous people who will go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. I was travelling solo and they also went out of their way to make me feel safe. They also make amazing home cooked meals with fresh fruit, veg and herbs straight from the large jungle garden. I would definitely stay again!

    Alice2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place at Kanchana parents house. Beautiful view in the morning on paddy field. Very close to Pinnawela village and no problem tuktuk trip from Rambukkana train station (~5km, 300 Rs.) We also order breakfast for 300 Rs. per person and it was deliciouse. With a lot of fruits. Thank You very much for such wonderful time.
