Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an awesome place to visit with couple of friends. We enjoyed this place to the peak. No words to explain the experience that we got there. View was splendid. And the best thing was the natural pool. I know this place is bit expensive but after you went there you will never worry about the price that you spent. Finally I can recommend this place to anyone without any doubt.

Management of this place is very unprofessional when handling the booking. We were told that two days back the property is available and they will send us the account details for transfer. We called daily to get the information, but they mention us that they will send it, but they didn't.Two days later they told us place is unavailable for the requested date. Never trust the management, they change the booking for extra money. Very unreliable. Customers are not their main concern.

As you can see from the pictures it’s a nice banglow with a small infinity pool and breath taking views. To top that, the service from the really friendly staff (Naditha and crew) is outstanding.

We found this bungalow on google maps and booked it directly based on the positive reviews. We were not disappointed. From the initial email to Yasiru we received prompt and excellent service. Yasiru answered our many questions and was very helpful.

The challenge is getting up there. We took the free shuttle service offered from Kalawana town. It's a very bumpy ride in a jeep up to the bungalow. Some other 4-wheel drive vehicles have got stuck coming up, hence we recommend using their shuttle. The driver who took us up and down is really nice too.

What a surprise when you arrive at the bungalow. The views are breathtaking. We even saw a few eagles circling in the distance. The bungalow is basic but clean and unique. The pool is filled with continuously flowing natural spring water, which contributed to our relaxing stay.

The service we received especially from Naditha was excellent. The food was delicious and a highlight for us.
The bungalow could be maintained better and we communicated this to the staff.

We visited Sinharaja Rainforest one day from this bungalow.

There is very good coverage from both Dialog and Mobitel.

Overall an excellent place to have a very relaxing stay. If you are not looking for luxury accommodation, come and enjoy the views, food and excellent service. We would love to come back.

This place is out of this world! From the moment Yasiru picked us up in his old 4x4 we were made to feel welcome. After the short (bumpy!) drive up the mountain we arrived at Nestwood and were blown away! The view is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen, made all the better by the infinity pool looking over it.

Nestwood Bungalow is fantastic. It is nothing too fancy but has a real old world charm and is perfectly situated at the top of the mountain blending seamlessly into the surrounding the tea plantation. you really do feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but in the best possible way!

We stayed for 3 nights and had the most fantastic time. Yasiru and his brother Naditha made us feel at home and the service and food were of the highest quality, and would not be out of place in a top restaurant anywhere in the world. The guys provided breakfast, lunch and dinner for the entire family and I don't think I have ever had better curry anywhere in the world! it was also unbelievably good value!

Yasiru was also very kind to take us on a trek into the surrounding rain forest and take us down the hill for a tour of the local tea factory.

We will definitely be back to visit in the future.

Handling of bookings are very Unprofessional. Place was available and we asked for bank details to pay the advance. Didn't send the bank details or answer the phone for two days and finally once we contacted the stupid person who is handling bookings, told that the property has been sold.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!! Very unprofessional management. We changed our planned trip dates to another due to the unavailability of this property. And these unethical people agreed us with our new dates. Everything was fine until we asked them to provide account details to pay the advance. After wasting so much of time, days, calls they have simply sent a message saying the property is unavailable for the said dates and not answering the phone calls even. They must have got a good offer rather than ours. Shame of you Nestwood.

Management of this property sucks, very unprofessional, promised to provide us the location and later informed that property has been sold out. Completely wasted our plans. Very unprofessional. Never trust the management, they will change the booking if somebody else pay few extra bucks.
