ATT’s Eagle’s View Nest was intoxicating!
The views, the food, the tranquility at the Eagle’s View Nest were everything we had been looking for and more. My wife and I had been to Sri Lanka once before for a weekend and we knew we wanted to come back. We had stayed north of Kandy last time and just happened upon the Eagle’s Nest View in our searches. We could not have found a better place. About an hour outside of Kandy, the location is breathtakingly beautiful. The back of the property looks over the hills and beyond. It was a bit rainy when we were there, but I love clouds and became quite familiar with them during our week there. The property has three patios: one glass enclosed, one open air, and the third on the second floor that is perfect for stargazing. The caretakers, Janaka and his wife, really deserve that name. He drove us where we wanted to go in his tuk-tuk (as well as to places we did not know about) and his wife fed us wonderful meals. The owners were very helpful and kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. All in all, we had a great time and I highly recommend this location.
James and his family had been wonderful guests according to my caretaker Janaka and most importantly had maintained a lot of respect towards the tranquil environment, the village and their unique culture that we as hosts love to preserve, enjoy and also respect.
They had also kept an immaculately clean house at all times. Shall not hesitate to recommend them to any other hosts out there. It was an absolute pleasure.
Schönes Haus mit fantastischer Aussicht. Man kann sich bei Bedarf von dem Verwalter Janaka bzw. seiner Frau lecker bekochen lassen, was in Anbetracht der abgelegenen Lage sehr angenehm ist.
One could hike to a secluded lake (3km) for a dip in icy cold water at an elevation of 2500ft or drive to the first tea plantation in Sri Lanka (the Loolecondera tea estate) or to Kandy (15km) or to the secluded, always misty village of Mandaramnuwara (50km) on a beautiful ancient road.
It’s a neighborhood inhabited with many laid back villagers whose main occupation is farming, and evolve around a very peaceful traditional Buddhist culture not exposed to any sort of commercial tourism. A direct bus from Kandy town is available to the little village of Moragolla (14kms) and there is another 1.5km breathtaking walk from the bus stop to the property. But also one could take a TUK TUK from the bus stop which will cost around US$ 2/- on a winding mountain road
