A fabulous start to our holiday in Sri Lanka. We chose to stay here for five days as a base for visiting the cultural centres. A lot of driving was involved but coming back to Jim's at the end of the day felt like returning "home". We had been recommended the villas by a friend who takes her yoga group...

Fantastic gardens and grounds. Loved the farm tour and the cooking lesson. The staff gave us a great welcome and were always at the ready to ferry us around the property by tutus. Delicious dinners at a long communal table sharing the day's experiences with others was very special.

This secluded set of villas are a real gem nestled within the coconut plantations of the hill country. Very relaxing atmosphere with local food available on request. The main villa also has a great swimming pool. The staff are very accomodating and welcoming.

Recently stayed at Jim's Farm Villas whilst travelling around Sri Lanka. After hours on trains and coaches it was bliss to arrive at this little part of heaven. Stunning and peaceful location. The villas are fantastic, spacious and well equipped - we were lucky enough to stay in the one with the pool! Staff are all so friendly and attentive...

We stayed at Jims for four nights at the end of our trip and it was amazing. We felt instantly relaxed by the welcoming staff and feel of the place. We were in Mango villa which has amazing views (even from the shower!) and a huge room, bathroom and balcony. The room was decorated to a high standard with all...

The accommodation was excellent, the staff were fantastically friendly and helpful and the views were amazing. Tuk tuks always available to transport you from one villa to another if you didn't fancy the walk up the hill. Beautiful sunsets and lots of birds to watch while you lazed by the pool.

Recently stayed at Jim's Farm, on our arrival we were welcomed by our hosts Kevin and Jesse, and from the time we arrived were made to feel like family friends and not hotel guests. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the staff, who always greeted us with a smile. The accommodation was excellent, perhaps biased as we...
