Hanthana Holiday Rooms

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We stayed here for three nights and had a fantastic time, the family were very welcoming and so helpful. The room we stayed in was beautiful and the house is in a great location, a little way out of the centre of Kandy but still close enough to walk into the town through the hills spotting wild monkeys in the trees. The food was delicious and a great way to experience true Sri Lankan cooking! Thanks again to all the family, we had a wonderful time.

We really felt at home at the Hanthana Holiday Rooms! The family was so nice and helpful, the food they prepared was great, our room was clean and comfortable, the location is beautiful! Everything you want from a real homestay!
And if you want to hear a good story: ask Ananda to tell you about his travelling 30 years ago! :)
Thank you so much for having us!

Me and two friends spent two nights in the homestay, and we greatly enjoyed the hospitality offered by Ananda and his family. The house is huge, the rooms were clean and the water piping hot and there were multiple socket adaptors around the house to accommodate for various nationalities.
Ananda also enjoyed chatting to us, gave us many tips (unfortunately didn't have time to visit all places, maybe some other time in the future), and his wife prepared tasty breakfast (hoppers on day 1, egg sandwiches to go on day 2 - we had to leave very early, so it only shows the greta hospitality) and rice & curry for dinner (different kinds, incl. jackfruits which we didn;t see anywhere else in Sri Lanka).
Just one word of caution - it may be slightly tricky to find - especially as there is another quest house with a similar name. I'd recommend coming with a taxi and letting the driver speak to Ananda directly.

High up on the hills,away from the traffic of Kandy, this place has an excellent location up in the forest, with great views and lots of birds. Mr, Ananda, his wife and son are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble to them. Trishaws easy to arrange down to the town @ 300 LKR (Nov 2013).

The most cherished guesthouse of our honeymoon trip! The perfect mix with warm and welcoming people, most helpful (they went with us to help us choose and negociate saris in the city and adviced film at the cinema), and a dizzying situation.
It is a quiet resting place perched within the jungle not 15 minutes away from the Kandy dynamism, you may have a walk around in the wild or just observe it from your seat. Our room was well equipped, clean and marvelously comfortable, and dinners were a great time.
The quality of life here is clearly one or two steps ahead the very reasonable budget : a jewel we adviced to try to every people we met afterwards : Keep on !

It was our first place to stay during our two week trip and it turned out great! The hosts are very friendly and willing to help you with everything. In addition, you could taste wonderful Sti Lankan cuisine here. I highly recommend HHR, I'm sure you won't regret staying there.
