We were actually thinking of going to Ella, but heard about the great train ride from Haputale to Ella so decided to go to Haputale first. We coudn't have made a better decision. Instead of 1 day we stayed 3 and it seemed that everyone who stayed at Dias rest had a hard time leaving. There is so much to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at White monkey just for one night and it was one of best experiences we had in Sri Lanka. The guest house is next to a tea plantation and the nearby rock offers a great view. They provide several kinds of rooms and all of them are very clean. The best thing about White Monkey... More

We woke up to discover that the beautiful clouds around us had descended over the hotel. It was a beautiful feeling, sitting on the verandah and reading my book with a cup of tea while surrounded in cloud. Once the cloud cleared, it revealed a breathtaking view of the whole area. The people running the hotel are very friendly. It... More

I arrived at Diaz guest house without a booking and without contacting them in advance. The place was full but that didnt stop Viraj from letting me stay there for the night in his bed while he slept on the sofa. Next day i got an amazing room with a huge window to some magnificent view. The family is so... More

What a great place to stay! It felt like we where part of the family during our stay. Lovely people who will do anything to make you feel happy. In the morning we had great views over the mountains, probably the best views in the country. We had delicious breakfast and diners, very much enjoyed this. The room we had... More

We spent two nights in this wonderful place in Haputale. They picked us up from train station, welcomed us in their home and let us feel like it was our home. The rooms and bungalows were very clean and comfortable (we were 3 couples and therefore had 3 rooms and a bungalow for us). Mr.Dias and his so were very... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage, the panoramaview is really breathtaking. The family is very nice and helpful, food is great and we really felt welcome at this family homestay. There are a lot of things to do in haputale and we enjoyed it more than ella.

We got there accidentally a day early in the late afternoon after walking Adams Peake and we were exhausted , and they went out of their... More

This place has a completely incredible location on a steep hillside overlooking southern Sri Lanka, genuinely breathtaking stuff. Rooms are pretty basic (and it's cold up in these hills - bring layers!) but are clean and have hot showers, mosquito nets and comfy beds so have everything you need. The family make fantastic food and having dinner each night in... More
