Idyllic setting but watch that hill!
I was not well so this may colour my view. I was not prepared for the very long steep walk to and from our room which made me think twicw about going anywhere. Curtains which were huge were full of dust and everything smelt of and was penetrated with incense. Food was basic and over priced. Without transport and travelling a long distance there was no where else to go to eat or get snacks. No alcohol. Some very purist guests who told us off several times for talking. Now the positives. Absolutely beautiful setting high in the hills. Very quiet and peaceful. Lovely cool brook at the base of the hill. Old retro feel like the beetles sargent pepper era. Very good massages and alternative medicine treatments. Ok for a very short stay to recharge you batteries.

まずは入口の門から素敵です!インテリアも何もかもセンスが良くて、アンティーク好きには堪らない宿。森のなかを30分ほど歩くと滝があるのですが、おじさんが案内してくれます。険しい道もありますが早朝さんぽは清々しいですよ♪ 夜は暗くて懐中電灯を持って施設内を移動します。道明かりとしてたいまつが焚かれていておしゃれな雰囲気。満天の星空を見上げていたら、ホタルが飛んでいるのも見れました(^-^) マネージャーさんもとても親切、シロダーラもリーズナブルで気持ちよかったです!

a nice hotel in the midst of nature
the place is amazing as it is located in the middle of pure nature around 26 km outside of Kandy. the resort comprises of different bungalows, all furnished with Antiques in a very tasteful way. we loved the uniqueness of the place, the peaceful nature with Yoga sessions available in the morning and lovely, tasteful food. It is a place for walking, resting on the sun beds at the river on the terraces of the rooftop restaurant... a Paradies if one likes to stay in quiete and yet comfortable place. The option of doctor's consultation and ayurvedic treatments is a wonderful opportunity. I would love to visit this place again.

広い敷地にコテージが点在しており、 小さい四部屋つきのコテージに泊まりました。 周囲は散歩コースや川があり、ゆっくり散策できました。 10日の旅の真ん中に2日間泊まり、ゆっくりしたおかげで、後半のハードな旅も快適に過ごせました。 アーユルヴェーダは最高でした。 オイルマッサージ60分、スチームバス30分、シロダーラ60分で75ドルとお手頃な値段でした。 スリランカは色々回るところがあるので、2日以上泊まって1日はアーユルヴェーダやさんぽや洗濯でゆっくり過ごせました。 ヨガは一回15ドルでやっているそうですが、ヨガはの先生がバイク事故で足を痛めたそうで、やってませんでした。なので誰もいないヨガ場で勝手にヨガをしました。 場所はキャンディから遠いですが、 ゆっくりしたい人にはオススメです。 キャンディからバスでもいけます。 自分は、最寄りのディガーナまでバスで行って、そこからトゥクトゥクで600ルピーで宿までいきました。 宿の前からキャンディ行きのバスが朝8時、10時などに出ています。乗換必要ですが。
