Hotel Tree of Life; standing tall in its antique splendour it has a glorious history since its conception in the year 1900. Thereby passing the 100th mile stone, Tree Of Life recalls the glory days situated at Yahalatenna surrounded by 700 acres of Tea plantations, playing home to the British soldiers who owned the surrounding estate area as well as being the perfect hideout for Lord Mount Barren during the dark period of Second World War.

I must say the Hotel is nothing less than SUPERB!!!! Away from city and situated at 500 mts. above sea level plus with 65 acre property and all covered with trees is the place where you can think to stay. The Hotel name speaks for itself Tree of life meaning tree is our life and if we cut them down we are making our survival difficult. Spacious rooms and every room is provided with private balcony to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Food is superb and the best pat is that the restaurant is open plus you have 3 brother singing songs... Next to the restaurant you have pool which is clean too. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The whole ambiance will make you sit in the hotel and enjoy it. We stayed there for 2 nights and trust me I wished that I had another day so that I could have stayed here. The Hotel is provided with Ayurveda massage center as well so do try when you are there. In the morning you can take a trip to nature bird watching. Guys hats off to the way you are maintaining the natural beauty.. Highly Recommended!!! Stayed February 2017, traveled as a couple

We stayed as a family group in December and much enjoyed our stay. The rooms in the upper area were very good, through the bathrooms needed some repair etc. We found the food excellent and the chef was happy to provide plain meals for the children. Early mornings my wife and I went birdwatching with good sightings both within the grounds and just outside. The hotel is quite far out from Kandy but for us it was what we wanted and we had our own transport. Naturally we enjoyed the swimming pool, but unfortunately one of the children had an accident there. The staff and another guest could not have been more helful in looking after him and getting him to hospital. The general hospital did an excellent stitching of the wound and when we got home our local hospital commended on how well the stitching had been done. So a big thank you to the staff for their help as well as for good food, friendliness, clean rooms, and the overall ambiance. One comment; I like music at night but canned music in the empty restaurant at 06.00 is not needed!
Many thanks again to all the management and staff.
