"Not Mountain Gem - it's a hidden gem!"

A perfect place to stay - good value, central location, an entertaining caretaker and cook (Kalu).Kalu served us hearty breakfast every morning after my jog to the nearest town just 2.5 km away where … More

"Comfortable stay with lots of greenery and open space around."

I travelled with my family to Sri Lanka and we were at Kandy from 10th to 13th August. Our stay at Mountain Gem was comfortable and enjoyable. The villa is spacious and is well kept. There is a spacious verandah outside the house which was wonderful for a late night sit out. The villa is situated away from the city with lots of greenery around. Kaalu, the caretaker was very helpful around and was kind to the kids.

Thank you for your review, we hope to welcome you back at Mountain Gem when you next visit Sri Lanka.

"Beautiful house, brilliant staff, complete bargain!"

I travelled with my boyfriend and another couple and we all without question loved our stay at Mountain Gem! We were so well looked after - in fact spoilt - from the moment we entered by Halu and the lovely lady whose name i am afraid i didn't get. They cooked for us (brilliant meals - dinner was superb) and even did our washing themselves even though we had planned to do it ourselves. The price of our stay was the biggest bargain we experienced in Sri Lanka and a great find for somewhere like Kandy where accommodation can be on the pricey side... I can't say enough about how great this place is. Location-wise it was perfect for us. You will need a driver / tuk tuk to get you to the main sites in the city and lake area below but i would much rather that than be in the noise and hustle and bustle below. It is still pretty central but just up one of the mountain / hills slightly (as the name would suggest) in a beautiful, much more chilled out location. Loved it. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you very much for your feedback - we are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.
