Jim’s Farm Villas
Matale

A boutique hotel set within 50 acres of organic farmland surrounded by palm trees and landscaped gardens, Jim’s Farm Villas is home to three luxurious properties which can be booked individually or on a room by room basis.

Located 30 minutes north of Kandy and close to Sri Lanka’s leading UNESCO World Heritage sites, Jim’s Farm Villas is the ideal base for exploring the nearby parks and temples. Guests are completely enveloped by nature at the property and can spend their days relaxing by the pool, taking part in a cooking class or learning about Sri Lanka’s diverse environment on the organic farm.

The beautifully appointed villas fit seamlessly into the surroundings radiating a feeling of ease and serenity. The traditionally decorated bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with solar hot water and air conditioning. Handmade teak and rattan furniture, vaulted wooden ceilings and lime plaster walls showcase the best of Sri Lankan craftsmanship.

Authentic local meals are prepared throughout the day by resident chefs who cater for all requirements and preferences. Western dishes are also available and although breakfast is enjoyed individually, dinner is a communal affair with guests gathering around a table on the veranda sharing the stories of their day.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
