            Best stay during our trip to Sri Lanka”

            Location, amazing views, sincere service, quality food

            We have very fond feelings everything we think and talk about Melheim Resort. The resort has stunning views, and it was a sheer pleasure just to stay within the comfort of the resort to view the beautiful landscape and wildlife. We love bird-watching and it was exhilarating to spot over 30 species during our stay there. Apparently there are over 80 species (out of the 400 in Sri Lanka) that can be found in that location. The resort has binoculars to offer, and I believe it's telling how pleasant the resort is when you see so many birds make their nests in the different corners of the resort. Very excellent and sincere service by the entire staff team. We felt very at home during our 4Ns there. The lead manager has recommendations on places to walk/trek near the resort, and they offer gorgeous views. The food was excellent - they make effort to serve you delicious food made from great ingredients. Ask for the local breakfast when u are there. There's no doubt Melheim Resort is a great base to explore the hill country - Horton plains, etc. Being slightly lower than Haputale, it is less cloudy/ cold and offers great view. It is extremely comfortable and homely and we highly recommend it. Thanks to Erik & Sandya at Tripadvisor for this gem of a recommendation.

            Lovely hotel, beautiful location, great service”

            Only six or seven rooms so very personalised service, excellent food at very reasonable prices, very thoughtful manager who clearly loves his job and is very aware of the needs of his guests.

            when i booked the melheim i thought i was staying in the city of nuwara eliya as opposed to the region of nuwara eliya. the melheim is in haputale which is about 60km south from the city of nuwara eliya. i tried to cancel my booking but was unable to do so as it was not within the 14 days prior to arrival. i was so glad i could not cancel as my 2 nights at the melheim were an absolute treat. the hotel is set high up in the hills with wonderful views of the valley below and as it is quite isolated, it is very peaceful and quiet. the rooms are large and beautifully decorated and as there are only six or seven rooms, the attention from the staff and manager is very personalised. when you arrive a security guard open the gates and a bell is rung to alert staff that new guests have arrived. the manager comes out to welcome you and while you have your welcome drink, your luggage is taken to your room. your dinner order is taken late afternoon so there is no unnecessary waiting at meal times and the food is superbly cooked and presented and very reasonably priced. i would rate all aspects of the melheim as 5* and would highly recommend at least a one night stay.

            UNFORGETABLE”

            This was my second stay at Melheim from 23 to 26 Oct' 16; the previous being in 2014. The staffs are all fantastic, the views are awesome and such a tranquil place to relax and rejuvenate. The resident manager, Mr. Raphael, is exceptional in his care and service to his guests. When I asked where it would be a good place to view the night sky, he switched off half the garden lights so I could view the magnificent skies in the dark. What can I say - he is a gem. The waiters Rohitha and Giayantha are another example of proactive staffs who go the extra mile. As I preferred Brown bread, they had the kitchen staff bake a loaf and also prepared hoppers & rice milk using Brown rice flour. The lengths these lovely people go to take care of their guests. It was nice again to meet housekeeping staff, Buddika - always helpful but never intrusive. I loved my 2014 stay and really LOVED this time. I have been traveling to other parts, Galle, Colombo, Negombo and I found in these other areas, the service culture has gone down unfortunately. Getting a tad commercialized but thankfully Melheim retains its warm hospitality. I really wish I had more time to enjoy this beautiful area that Melheim Resort is located. Thank you all so very much and please keep up the good work. Take care and hope to visit again soon.
