Viraj and his lovely family made us feel so welcome here! You will not believe the view when you get out of the tuk tuk - this place is totally unique! Fantastic food, especially coconut roti for breakfast. As soon as the dishes are empty they are generously refilled. Viraj took us on a day trip to the local waterfalls.... More

We were supposed to stay only one night but we liked the place so much we stayed an additional one. Dias' family is extremely welcoming and we spent some time in the living room with the sons, nephews, grandmother, mother, etc. The food is good and very cheap, the accomodation too. One of the sons came to the station by... More

A very nice place to stay especially if you are interested in geocaching. Here you can have your own guide. Very friendly family and very good food. The whole area around are spectacular, what a view!! We really recommend this place. Try to get the newbuilt building. It´s best. Susanne and Anders Widman Sweden

This is a wonderful home stay in a fantastic location. Perched on a quiet hillside 10mins from Haputale by Tuk Tuk is a local house with two cottages and two rooms. The view is phenomenal. We were greeted warmly and given a room in the main building (under construction - new kitchen and rooms to be completed soon) with warmish... More

Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed great family hospitality, awesome cuisine and wonderful views right from the hut. Close reach to wonderful Liptons Seat and guided secret trail to waterfalls. Just be sure to ask for charcoal against flies and some blankets for colder nights...

One of the best experience I ever had - during a life of travel. We intended to stay for one night but as we needed to leave the place at the third day to go further south we felt very sad... the family is just lovely, the view stunning, the food delicious and diverse. It is the place to be... More

Bathroom was clean but not really hot water. Bedding really basic & not super clean. Very dusty mosquito net. we were freezing so make sure you have... More

We found it a little bit difficult to reach White Monkey Dias Rest by phone, but it turned out it was well worth it that we kept on trying. This place was simply outstanding. Both in terms of the views and the accommodation itself. The host family is so friendly that we really found it difficult to leave. We stayed... More
