A boutique hotel set within 50 acres of organic farmland surrounded by palm trees and landscaped gardens, Jim’s Farm Villas is home to two 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 Sri Lankan 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.
I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.Bill Bryson
