This place is just incredible, the most peaceful place i've ever been... Luxury equipment in the wild nature... The personnel are very helpful, kind and discret. We had a wonderful moment there.

Rural setting within close proximity to Sigirya and Dambulla. Stylish rooms with beautiful public areas and small pool. A great base within the Cultural Triangle. Wild elephants passed by (not too close by!) during the evening meal to the delight of staff and guests.

Perfect getaway if you love nature”
Loved this place. The wildlife was wonderful and every trip out (even to the open air bathroom) was an adventure. Exotic birds, lizards, water buffalo, elephants.... There was an array of animals on offer. Nice staff and good food on offer too. If you like your curry spicy make sure you ask as they will tend to make it to suit the European taste. Alcohol was a little limited but I started to look forward to a lion beer at the end of the day. Go for walks in the area and enjoy the nature

I really like the property, especially the way the grounds are kept like surrounding areas and local trees and plants are planted for a most natural feel of the place. looking at the size of the property, it would be wonderful to have walk-ways in it, so that it is possible to walk around this lovely property. The quality of food was very good and I highly appreciate the fact that freshly cooked food was being served. More attention needs to be paid to the food served, with more varieties offered for the vegetarian guests. It was very boring to eat the same food for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I found the staff very courteous and willing to help at all times.

Perfect stay in every way; wonderful staff, fantastic accommodation and delicious food”
Our 3 night stay at Kumbukgaha couldn't have been more perfect. The staff were all wonderful, incredibly friendly and very helpful. The room was huge and really lovely with a very comfortable bed. The outdoor bathroom was great. We went at the start of the rainy season and enjoyed a couple of warm showers in the pouring rain. The pool was great, and we especially enjoyed having a swim surrounded by a few monkeys in the trees. Breakfast was great and very filling, and the 4 course dinner was fantastic - a different option to choose from each night for the main course. The location was perfect for us. It was so quiet being off the beaten track and very relaxing after our week and half of travelling around Sri Lanka. The hotel organised a tuk tuk driver for us for our two trips out; one to Sigiriya rock (2500 rupees for round trip) and Polonoruwa (5000 rupees for round trip). All in all this stay was our highlifht in Sri Lanka and we couldn't recommend it enough!!!

Good Food, Relaxing in middle of nowhere”
This is a very quiet place far from the busy road. Finding the place might be tricky as there are no large boards or signs until you see the property in middle of a large field. The stay was wonderful mainly because of the very friendly staff. You could hear the sharp sound of Peacocks wandering around the hotel grounds. The location is built in traditional Sri Lankan way and has lot of antique ornaments. Food was delightful. Pool was situated on an odd place with no view at all. But still the hotel maintains a good connection with nature without spoiling.

Beautiful villa”
We stayed here for 1 night and our only regret was that it wasn’t longer! Staff were absolutely brilliant, dinner was great value and villa was spacious. The only thing to keep in mind is they only accept cash and the hot water doesn’t last long - the only small inconveniences. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for somewhere a bit different to your usual hotel!

Amazing silence and harmony with wilderness. It’s good to know that it is in very remote area and around 10min tuk tuk drive to the village, but that gives it a charm at the same time. Lovely room and open air bathroom. Staff really nice and helpful.

Staff are amazing and very accomodating”
open-air, design, service
We made a mistake and booked our accommodation for March and not Feb - they could not have been more accommodating. They were closed for the night (all the main staff had gone home) however they were really generous and opened it up for us. The place itself is magical, in the evening the sound of insects and animals is deafening... in a great way. The outdoor bathroom is an experience, the room is split level and there is a TV placed upstairs. Even though they are two star, their attention to detail (in the design) and service makes it more of a 4 star. P.S the hotel is at the end of long bumpy road, but bear with it as it is totally worth it.

Peacefull retreat to get away from it all”
Lovely place to unwind. Beautiful setting with only 7 rooms at the moment. Peacocks in the field opposite and an elephant path next to the pool! Staff were lovely. I would suggest tea making facilities in the room. I loved the isolation and the lack of tv. Great place to escape. They are currently building 4 more rooms but this does not influence the quality of your stay.

After an active day sight-seeing, it was always great to return to Kumbukgaha for some relaxation. The sounds of nature, a dip in the pool or a tea on our veranda were always a joy. The staff catered to our every need from an extra early breakfast, an emergency trip to the doctor to needing an extra bed. We would recommend and happily return to this boutique hotel.

A hidden gem!”
What a find this hidden gem was! Firstly, this really is in the middle of nowhere with nothing in walking distance and it is down a long dusty track! The rooms have been finished to a very high standard and the outdoor bathrooms were beautiful! Showering under the stars was pretty special! The best part was the 3 course dinner they served each night for $10 (yes you read correctly!!!). The food was incredible and essentially it was all you can eat as they just kept topping us up! If you are looking for a slice of tranquility in beautiful surroundings this is the place for you! Finally, the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful!!!

Beautiful place, but someone messed up”
This "hotel" is just beautiful. It's not what you think of as a hotel, which is why I put it in quotes. There are a few individual bungalow type houses, and a couple of rooms that do share a wall. It is a beautiful property that is next to rice fields. The dining area is outdoors and stunning. The road to get to the property is a little rough though. My husband and I were supposed to have a two night stay at this property, however, something happened, there was miscommunication between Agoda and Kumbukgaha Villa, our reservation was lost (even though my credit card was charged), they were overbooked, and we did not get to stay the two nights. Kumbukgaha Villa, did what they could - they gave us an upgraded room for one night at no charge, and Agoda booked us a room at another hotel for the following night for no additional charge. I was sad to not be able to stay here the second night. Dinner was good but expensive and probably should've been free due to the situation.

Tranquil Oasis”
This property is a bit off the beaten path, but once you find it you are delivered to a tranquil oasis. There are wild peacocks, monkeys and even an elephant or two may pass through during the evening. From check-in to check-out everything was wonderful. They helped us celebrate our son's 2nd birthday as well! There is nothing else near the property, so we did have breakfast and dinner onsite each day. The food was excellent!!! They had a great wifi connection, it just did not quite make it to our villa. Thus, I would use the main sitting area to check email, etc... I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a peaceful, zen location. One note: the bathrooms for each villa are private, but outside and uncovered. It was a unique experience showering under the moonlight, but this may not be for everyone!

Wow wow wow the best place ever!! It’s perfect from staff, environment and food!! You have come here”
This was the most magical place we have been too. The environment is spectacular as you are surrounded in the jungle with Buffalo, monkeys, elephants, peacocks and stunning birds. The structure and design is perfect. The pool is the right size and reasturent is fab. The food is out of this world and you try so many amazing dishes. Breakfast is fit for a king. The only thing is more a variety on wine and alcohol but that is such a minor thing in the grand scheme of our perfect it is here. Then the staff are fabulous as they attentive but knowone bothers you and you can relax and chill. I want especially say that A.H. Lionel and D.P.Gunatilaka made our stay even more special with there attitude and service. They also organise a Brillant driver for you that you should take up who is W.M.Premasirin (+94774439501) and makes see the fab sites that are great and I would definitely come back here. I hope you enjoy as much as us as I would say it is perfect.
