What a relaxing stay it was at the beautiful colonial bungalow tucked away on a small hilly area in the midst of a tea estate. The friendly staff with their warm & easy charm made me & my husband welcome as if we have known each other for many years. The food was out standing prepared with much care. The premises were maintained well & felt very safe. It was one of the best weekends we had. Cheers to Thebuwana!

Stayed at this bungalow where the floor ties are 200 hundred years old. Extremely well appointed bungalow and very very comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff , good food and lovly swimming pool. Terrific view down to Kalu Ganga(river) .There is a quarry nearby which can make a bit of noise but is doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the stay

What more can I add that hasn't already been written. This place truly is a hidden treasure. The bungalow has 4 rooms - each one named after local rivers which all rise in Adams Peak which is a big hill which pilgrims climb. The whole place is spotlessly clean and there was a wonderful smell of mansion polish on the 200 year old tiles!!! The beds were super comfortable with really good quality linen and pillows. Dressing gowns, slipper a safe and toiletries and hair dryer all provided and flat screen TV, all of these things which one does not normally expect to find in an estate bungalow. As other reviewers have said the staff were absolutely first class. The food was delicious no menu so just ate what was prepared which was excellent.Loely pool very tranquil except when the quarry was working but even that did not detract from out enjoyment. we will go back!!

I can't find the right words to describe beauty of this place, you must experience to understand. Bangalow very tidy, rooms spacious, food amazing. During the day noise from the quarry, but didn't bother us at all. Beautiful birds, monkeys, small and big lizards. View unbelievable. I would recommend if you want to escape from the world and you looking for your peace of heaven. Been very lucky had this place for myself and my husband. No proper road to bangalow, wild road truck. Big thank you to staff at bangalow, made us feel very welcome and spoiled us with fresh made food and fruit juice.

Wonderful! The only thing in the way of this being total paradise was the sound from the quarry in the opposite hill, which was always there during daylight hours, but in the distance. Very secluded hilltop location, in well-kept grounds. Far-reaching views on all sides of forests and hills. Saw some amazing sunsets, exotic birds, cute chipmunks and little geckos. Very friendly and obliging staff always available. Personal butler even arranged a tuk-tuk and accompanied us into the nearest city, where he and the driver showed us around the temple and helped us with our shopping. He even brought lunch and we had a picnic on the beach. The food was fantastic! Great for vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians and meat-eaters. Lots of fresh ingredients, straight from the garden! Including pineapples, mangoes, coconuts, herbs and vegetables. Each meal was cooked from fresh. Our amazing chef was trained in cooking western food as well as traditional Sri Lankan dishes. We made the most of trying new flavours. There was no menu, instead each meal was made to order based on what we felt like eating that day. Even when we both ate the same dish, the chef adapted each to our personal preferences for tastes and spices. The two groundsmen were also friendly and carried wooden lounge beds up from the pool, when we wanted to relax in the shade. The pool was cleaned every day, a good size and surrounded by trees and views of the valley. The owner was helpful and welcoming and took my post into town at no extra charge. We had the most relaxing time ever!
