Up, up, almost touching Budha's feet! :) After a long drive up, 12.30 at night, we got there. Thank God for Ravi, our driver, otherwise I don't know how we could have found the way! There are road signs, don't worry, but you need to know the region. Anyway, we got there and were met by the owner, Pathi who...

The two of us spent three nights at Hanthana House in August, and could not fault our stay. Ten minutes from the noisy centre of Kandy, Hanthana House enjoys a quiet location easily accessible by tuk tuk (one will pick you up from the station when first arriving). Rooms were clean with extremely comfortable beds, the bathroom had hot water...

The bathroom was a good size and again clean. The cooking was delicious and we are great curry both evenings. Patti was very helpful with suggestions of...

We loved this place! We booked for 2 nights originally but booked an extra night as it was so lovely. We had 2, very large rooms, on the top floor, with a balcony going all the way round affording great views, and a large sitting area outside. There was also an inside seating area by the 2 rooms. All very...

I recently stayed at this lovely place in Kandy & this was the best most comforting hotel in my whole trip. Spend four days here & it worth millions ! The amazing home prepared food by Suba (Pathi`s Wife) gives a best selection of srilankan spices and a traditional taste. Its no point just staying there and not having their...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hanthana House is a boutique type accommodation which offers a comfortable stay in an attractive surroundings with added benefit of tasty and Srilankan Cooking which you can learn to prepare yourself!. Hanthana House consists of two en suite double bedrooms and one en suite twin bedroom and one en suite triple room, all with generous balconies overlooking the neighbouring tea estate. The bedrooms have ceiling fans, teak furniture and polished cement floors as well as a wet room with shower, basin and WC. The newly-built spacious and light dining room also has views of the tea estate and it is open to the generous new kitchen, where cookery lessons are always available! The upstairs sitting area has a comfy sofa and armchairs as well as a piano and Wi-Fi access! An organic kitchen garden is planned which will provide most of the vegetables for meals, and various walks through tea plantations and up to local viewpoints are accessed from the front door. Hanthana House is approximately 4 km from Kandy in the Hanthana hills, an area famous for cultivating some of the first tea grown on the island and the location of the Ceylon Tea Museum. Please be aware that a homestay is neither a hotel nor a guesthouse as you live and socialise with a family in their home. Think of it as an extension of your own home, with the usual creature comforts and no-one to make your bed or clean your room on a daily basis! The real experience is the interaction with a Sri Lankan family as they go about their daily life. ... more   less
