Focus on Hotel Tree of life’s History
Tree of Life
It has been one of the locations that provided rest houses during the Sinhala Kandyan era, where people from different parts of Sri Lanka visited on their way to the hill capital, or during their journey to other parts of the Central province.
Situated in an area of great ancient atmosphere, the area not only is valued for its antiquity but also for the treasures hidden beneath the earth such as silicon, amethyst, and crystal clear spring water, adding indescribable value to the whole picture combined with values of unearthed surprises, surrounding beauty and great history.

Lord Mountbatten loved the countryside, short leaves spent at a tea estate bungalow at Yahalatenna, 6 kilometers north of Kandy. Reminisces of 77 years old Ambrose Nadarajah, who worked at Kings Pavilion from 1944 – 1946. As a young housekeeping assistant, and later became stewards on P & O lines. This bungalow, with its tree-shaded croquet lawn, is now part of the Hotel Tree of Life.”

A great hotel near Kandy
Very friendly helpful staff, specially Rajitha at the reception. Clean quiet rooms. Comfy beds. A reasonably good breakfast buffet. More than anything the calm and tranquil surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A little advice- Though the GPS will take you there ultimately, it can direct you through narrow scary tiny roads.
Quiet nature retreat
A great retreat from the bustle of Kandy and Peradeniya, however, you will need transport as it is some distance from railway stations. Fantastic isolated retreat, ideal for bird watching. Beautiful massages.
