FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (37)

I am running out of superlatives to describe this gorgeous place. The main house is utterly stunning and has an air of colonial splendour to it. The staff are so kind and helpful – just when you are taking a breather between delicious meals, they arrive at your lounger with tea and cake. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to this blissful place. We spoke to many other guests and all of them were very happy and wished they were staying longer. Adventurer, March 24

Glorious jungle location, stunning property lovingly restored by its owners with a lovely friendly team of staff who were so helpful and kind - and top quality food. Divine swimming pool. Grounds full of fruit and spice trees and full of birds and wildlife. Barbara, March 24

Lovely property, lovely staff and great food. The entire property: a stunning treat. Nice break after touring Sri Lanka for 4 weeks. Glenn Arthur, March 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (17)

The place is definitely quite remote, but in such a stunning and beautiful landscape, wow. The rooms we're fantastic, amazing shower, everything nicely and lovingly furnished. Would have loved to stay a few more days, go walking, maybe a cooking class and just enjoy the hotel and the very beautiful pool, even long enough for a decent swim. In the end a fantastic place, but the best is definitely the lovely staff. Thanks for a great stay. Claudia & Patrick, March 24

Heart recommendation worth every penny! We would come back anytime. This accommodation was by far one of the best after 7 weeks in Sri Lanka! Exceptionally good! Clean and very stylishly furnished. The pool is fantastic and the food is incredibly delicious. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. Everything was just perfect. Especially the breakfast is really delicious. Everything was just perfect for us. Mathias, March 24

Incredibly beautiful! The best comes at the end! Last day in Sri Lanka! Incredibly beautiful!!! The pool area invites you to relax immediately. The view is amazing.

The outdoor shower very original! Margit, March 24

Perfect place to stay with great team, beautiful pool and wonderful walks Amazing property in beautiful grounds. Mark, March 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (13)

Exceptional. We enjoyed everything about this stay! For us this place was great to explore sights nearby Kandy, as well as a region around Sigiriya. Afterwards it was pleasant to return to the hotel and have a rest away from noise and rush. There were everything we needed in the room. Dinners and breakfasts were delightful. It is impossible to describe all about the villa and facilities of the hotel in short review. We can just advise to stay here. Andrey, March 24

Incredible, a British-style wild luxury villa hotel in a valley 20 kilometers away from Kandy. A century-old building, it was purchased by a British owner with four Schnauzers and renovated in 2010. It has a total of 9 guest rooms, focusing on tranquility and seclusion. Zheng, March 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (51)

A very beautiful hotel, every little detail in the interior is thought out. The food is delicious, the spices are in balance. The staff is responsive and very service-oriented. The area is well maintained, the pool is open 24 hours a day...One night is definitely not enough to enjoy. BOKHODIR, Feb 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (46)

Oasis of calm and wellness next to noisy Kandy. This place lets you settle down, no need to move at all. And yet it is well placed for trips to Kandy, Dambulla, Sigiriya and other places, 1.5-2 hrs from Colombo airport. Wonderful, attentive staff. Great food all day. All wishes made to happen. Florin & Misha, Feb 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (32)

Peace and tranquillity, luxurious whilst also being comfortable (and a lovely lively crew of dogs, to welcome you) This really is a gem of a place, absolute luxury, fantastic food, attentive (but lots of privacy), the rooms are beautifully designed for comfort and style. We absolutely loved it! I will most definately be back :) Katherine, Feb 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (15)

Paradise outside Kandy - there was nothing we didn’t like. It is the perfect retreat. An oasis of calm that nourishes the soul. It is close to Kandy so you can easily visit but far enough away that the hustle and noise is left behind. The house has so much to explore and we loved the library and chilling by the pool. The grounds themselves are stunning and well worth a walk around. Dinner has an amazing menu that changes daily. Sarah, Feb 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (52)

Paradise place that is extremely tastefully decorated. Everything checks out. The tasteful décor of the entire hotel, the food, the beautiful location and the great staff. Special shout out to Nandana. This guy's a real host. This hotel will remain high on our favorite list. Marjo, Feb 24

Our stay was an experience that left us in awe. This property is a unique and stunning oasis. The property exudes a charm that is hard to put into words. It's a blend of luxury, art, and tranquillity, all nestled in a serene setting. We were particularly enchanted by the old-school decor, which gave the estate a timeless elegance. The art collection housed here is truly impressive, including an original Picasso. We left with a longing to return. Rachel, Jan 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (16)

Beautiful property and hotel! What a stay.. despite it being very short and unforeseen we will keep a great memory of this very special place.. the staff is exceptionally kind and attentive to the guests, because here you feel like you are a guest of the house and not a customer. The informal side of this tastefully decorated house plunge you into a timeless universe, comfort, professionalism and friendliness. We will come back! Emma, Jan 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (15)

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (12)

A haven of peace away from Kandy. The location is exceptional, in the jungle. The decor of the house and rooms is unique. The owner with his dogs and the staff are adorable and caring. The magnificent view of the jungle from the pool, and the sunset. The dinner is very good and very good value for money. Best hotel we have stayed in so far. Mathilde, Jan 24

FLAME TREE ART 3 1 (47)

What an oasis of calm. We loved every second here. The property is spectacular. Our rooms were beautiful, stunning artwork adorning the walls and exquisite furniture. The playlist in the main foyer area was pitch perfect for easing you into the perfect stay. Our meal was of the very highest standard, a multi course treat with the freshest of ingredients. It would not have been out of place in a Michelin star restaurant. What a find! Don’t think, just book! Darragh, Dec 23

Our biggest regret is only staying for one night in this wonderful hotel. Amazing location and just an exquisite hotel! Jerry, Nov 23

FLAME TREE ART 11 2

Life in the middle of a palm tree garden...It‘s very peaceful. The house has an extraordinary interior and staff. It‘s very clean. We stayed here for 2 nights after our long flight from Europe and we could not have asked for a more relaxing place in the middle of a palm garden. There was always someone around and we were served with different kinds of tea. The dog family showed up once or twice a day and made the place more special. Julia Nov 23

FLAME TREE ART 11 1

Would highly recommend this place if you want some calm, relaxation and to be thrown back to colonial times. The property is stunning. Set up a little side road off the beaten track. The architecture, decor and overall ambience was so relaxing. Joanne, Nov 23

FLAME TREE ART 11 5

Absolute chill and relaxation. The ambient, feel like at home vibe with stunning interiors and views. It was a superb experience and we highly recommend you to stay there longer and soak into the atmosphere. It felt like time stopped and we just relaxed. Daria, Nov 23

Thank you to the staff for a wonderful stay :) Hiran, Oct 23

Stunningly classy, elegant and beautiful place to stay around Kandy and it's vicinity. Lost for words, the elegance and charm this place exudes is beyond me. The service from the staff was amazing and personal. Photos do not do this place justice; I'd give it a 20/10 if I could. Atmosphere felt so romantic me and my then girlfriend (now Fiancée) got engaged there. Thaddeus, October 23

We loved our stay here, could have stayed much longer. It was extremely peaceful and the staff were exceptional. A slice of paradise on a jungle estate close to Kandy.

Stunning views and tasty curries! This place is simply amazing. The attention to detail in terms of decoration and architecture is superb. The staff are very friendly. Our kids were treated so well that they did not want to leave after the 2 nights spent at the estate. The view from the swimming pool is very beautiful. The Sri Lankan breakfast was one of the best we had on our Sri Lanka trip. Perfect stay. Sergio, August 23

I think this is the best place in Sri Lanka, don't think, book :) I will join the enthusiastic reviews of other guests, I really travel a lot around the world and have been to many places. But it really is one of the best hotels I've been to. Judging by the reviews of other people, the only mistake that you can make is to come by jogging for 1 night in transit. Don't fuss, stay 2-3 or 5 nights, live in peace, you will get incredible pleasure from staying in this place. Pzo666, August 23

Flame Tree Art 923 14

The place is just magical, a small haven of peace in the middle of nature... the exceptional pool open at all times, the discreet but very attentive staff, the house and its decoration, the owner his kindness and his good advice, the delicious food...

Incredible. The Flame Tree Estate is truly one of a kind and an experience that will last a lifetime. Staying here is like a luxurious hug that welcomes you with open arms and wraps you up in a piece of paradise thanks to the generous hospitality and kindness of David and the team. The hotel is a lovingly restored house that contains a treasure trove of art and collectibles that will have you smiling from ear to ear as you discover them, explore the estate, & dip in the pool. Siobhan, August 22

Memorable. The beautifully restored house, the spacious rooms, awesome bathrooms and the perfectly-sized pool with a splendid view. Wonderful hospitality.

Food's great too. Shu SG, July 23

Flame Tree Art 8 15

A hidden gem in Sri Lanka. Words cannot do justice to this place. It feels like a slice of paradise on earth. From the time that we were welcomed by Angelo until we left, we experienced incredible hospitality from all members of staff. The food was also wonderful and well prepared. The accommodation was clean and well maintained and a special mention about the pool which we shared with the swallows that was out of this world. It is a must visit place in Sri Lanka!

The place is amazing from inside I have never seen any other boutique hotel with the kind of interior design this hotel has - its stunning. The view outside is also amazing because you are literally in the middle of the jungle. Very calm and relaxing! R, July 23

Flame Tree Art 8 2

I booked for 1 night. Once I met the team working there, and experienced the wonderful, wonderful place that is the Flame Tree Resort, I stayed for 10 days. Rooms are stunning, food is amazing. The Team are the best part, they make guests feel like friends. The peace & solitude is amazing, the pool overlooks the jungle and feels totally private. The reception area, the lobby, the library are all places where you will simply want to spend time: the best hotel we ever stayed at. Mark, July 23

Flame Tree Art 8 1

When you walk through the gates of Flame Tree you are greeted by a little slice of heaven & a big dose of serenity. Flame Tree ticks all the boxes you would hope for and then a few more that you didn't expect. We were so gently and warmly cared for throughout our 4 nights stay. Service was effortless and the food was generous, delicious, and complex in all the right ways. We found value for money to be exceptional in comparison to all other properties during our SL adventures. Tahlia, June 23

Our stay was flawless. The property is absolutely beautiful both house, room, pool and estate gardens alike. NB - I recommend staying in ‘the Mindful Mongoose’ the views are stunning, and the ash black four poster bed is to die for! The only thing better was the warmness of the owner, David, who has a wealth of stories and recommendations to impart; and the attentiveness of the staff - they are all so lovely and really made our stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Mylo, June 23

Paradise in the hills! A luxurious retreat close to Kandy. Stunning location with beautiful surroundings. We were blown away by the quality of the hotel, the excellent service - staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. The food was delicious.

Here everything is calm. We stayed 3 nights. And what happiness; our best stopover. This estate-hotel, near Kandy, is a delicacy for eyes, ears, & taste buds. Wonderfully located in a dream setting, its infinity pool offers breath-taking views of lush jungle. The main building is a real art gallery: singular, refined. The meals were delicious; dinner, served as a set menu, a delight. When we left, we had a little twinge in the heart. Thank you to the whole team for this moment. Xavier, March 23

This is the most intimate hotel in which my family and I have ever stayed. Everything is very delicious. And evening dinners of several courses are a separate kind of pleasure. There are many animals and birds around. Monkeys, chipmunks, giant squirrels, mongoose, lizards, etc. At the same time, the proximity of the animals does not interfere with living as there is good soundproofing of the rooms. with each guest. You live like in one big family. We truly enjoyed our stay. Anton, Feb 23

This place is simply amazing. With it's stylish living room, collection of paintings, library and garden, it is more like visiting a friend in their private villa: you feel at home immediately and don't want to leave to explore the area, but rather stay at the veranda or the pool to watch the sun set in the mountains, or to read a book. The staff are very professional and rooms are just perfect, with an eye for detail and comfortable beds. Freek, Feb 2022

A beautiful colonial estate with 150 years of history, in the middle of a 20-acre garden. Tastefully decorated interiors, great music with the sound of a fountain will make you relax and feel the atmosphere of colonial times. Exquisite food and impeccable service will make you feel like an English Lord. The interior of our room was filled with antiques and Andy Warhol's art. It is one of those places that cannot be missed and that you will remember for the rest of your life! Lukasz, Feb

Flame Tree Estate is simply stunning. It’s not really like being at a hotel at all, but more like staying at a relative’s house with exceptional taste in interior design and gardening. All the finishings in the rooms were of very high quality, comfortable beds/pillows, nice smelling body products etc. Staff were wonderfully kind and attentive, no request ever seemed like a bother. I also can’t speak highly enough of the chefs, all the food was fresh and flavourful. Hannah, Feb 2022

A beautiful colonial house, very tastefully renovated and decorated by the owner; it is stylish and refined, yet very warm and comfortable. There’s art everywhere, a huge library, but also plenty of space to relax by the gorgeous pool. Breakfast is delicious, and staff very attentive. We were there for one night and changed all our schedule to stay a second one. It’s a bit secluded from Kandy but definitely worth the detour as it is the perfect pause during your trip. Bruna, Feb 2022

We travelled Sri Lanka for 14 days and Flame Tree was easily our favourite hotel. It is a beautifully restored colonial estate in the middle of the jungle surrounding Kandy. It is completely serene and the whole estate feels of another time. Breakfast was delicious - so much choice - and the service was impeccable. However the real highlight of this stay is the view from the pool and dining area. Monkeys, peacocks, all living close by. Nina, Feb 2022

The property itself is outstanding, full of art works and antiques, batiks, old photos, furniture and with library that has shelves and shelves of books. The outside terrace faces west with views across a valley to a small hill and forest. The outlook is framed by palm trees. There is a superb swimming pool to cool off. There is constant bird song and sometimes monkeys will be seen in the palm trees. Jerry
