We spent 2 nights at Hanthana House. The family made us feel very welcome. Our en-suite room on the first floor was comfortable, and we benefited from having access to the verandah, where we enjoyed watching the wild boar feed.
The home cooked food was delicious, and we appreciated the effort that went into preparing it.
Tranquil setting about 20 minutes drive into the hills, from Kandy - don't be put off by the unfinished look of the exterior of the house on arrival.

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
