Just returned from a yoga holiday at Jim's Farm Villas in Sri Lanka. Complete relaxation, away from it all. A beautiful setting, staff so polite and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Stunning views from all three villas. My room was in mango, large and comfortable with everything I needed. Modern bathroom, with large shower overlooking the mountains. Private terrace,...

We stayed at Jims Farm Villas because our daughter had stayed here the previous year and said it was a must and she was right. The villa was at the top of the farm with the most spectacular views. The room was huge with our own outside spa. There were four villas at the top and management had decided that...

Thank you so much to everyone at Jim's! We had such a great stay here when we were up visiting the cultural triangle. The location is fantastic and the farm is stunningly beautiful with jaw-dropping views. The staff organised trips for us to Sigiriya, Dambulla as well as the Minneriya national park – where we saw such beautiful wild elephants,...

The location and hotel is wonderful. However, our room was NOT what was advertised on the internet. We were put in a so called 'family suite' which was beside work rooms and a garage on its own and found out it was in fact the General Managers accommodation. When I asked the GM - who incidentally was nothing but rude...

Serena: I am so sorry about this overbooking, and your allocation to a non standard room. I apologize profusely for my errors. Your direct booking was properly registered. Unfortunately I took another direct booking, and created the overbooking problem, as this one was apparently not registered on our Calendar, as the sync from my iPhone obviously failed. I should of...

We stayed at Jim's for four nights recently on our family trip around Sri Lanka. It was a fantastic highlight of the trip. The room we had in the Spice Villa was superb with everything we needed. Staff went above and beyond to look after us. Jessie the manager gave us some very good advice on places to visit (or...

Peaceful views in all directions of hillsides and coconut palms. Property - A beautiful collection of buildings with great design and perfect for the setting. All of a very spacious size and design with...

Jim's Farm was the first stop on our trip to Sri Lanka. A great place to recover from the jet lag. Service was excellent as was the food. The farm tour and cooking experience are a must. It is also a great base for day trips to the cultural triangle sites. We were bowled over at the variety of fruits,...

We enjoyed our stay at Jim's Farm because we got on well with the other guests. It's in a beautiful location although we didn't see it at its best during our stay (end of February) because of disappointing weather including a spectacular thunderstorm. The bedroom was nice but rather dark. Few hotels provide decent reading lights and Jim's Farm was...

Thank you for your positive Review, and your constructive comments about Jim's Farm Villas. Sorry about the thunderstorm! This is definitely atypical at this time of year, but in December, we had no monsoon, so for the Farm, these showers were a real boon. We will definitely check that all our bedside reading lights are in full working order, and...
